Fed up with wet golf shoes after a rainy day of winter golf? We review a new product that will transform care of your often expensive footwear.
They Say –
“Drysure came to life from a need to dry boots and shoes fast, without heat, electricity or batteries, but also be easy to use time and time again.
“Our founder James has always had a passion for skiing since a young age and always wanted to find a job that would involve skiing in some way.
“James first had the idea to design Drysure Boot and Shoe Dryers in Kitzbühel, Austria after a day of Extreme weather change from -18ºC to +4ºC.
“The thought of having to put wet Ski Boots on in the morning was not nice one so the brainstorming started and Drysure was born.”
How To Use –
Three easy steps:
1. Insert into footwear – remove the Drysures from the storage pouch they came in and slide them into each of your boots after a days activity.
2. Leave overnight to dry – no need to turn them on, just leave the Drysures in your boots to absorb sweat, moisture, and odour naturally.
3. Reactivate – you’ll get between 6 and 10 uses each time, but Drysures are reusable and will last you years with proper care and storage! Just reactivate them when they become less effective.
We Say –
As the weather turns really nasty and we prepare for cold and rainy days on the course few things chill the golfing heart like wet feet.
And it’s not just because you leave the course having had one bad experience, there is also the dread of what happens next.
Who hasn’t thrown his or her shoes in the boot and forgotten about them until the next round, suddenly discovering that they haven’t (surprise, surprise) dried properly and know you have to not only repeat the wet feet exercise, but you’ve accidentally made it worse?
Or you do remember they needed drying and spent time packing them with old newspaper which soaked up some of the damp, but not all of it?
Or you whacked them in front of a fire (or even just a warm place) and when you retrieved them there was a marked change in appearance, perhaps fit, possibly even performance?
Or they re-emerged dry but smelly?
All in all, turning wet shoes into dry ones has been a hassle.
Not any more; there are no more excuses.
Drysure’s brilliance is not that it is effective (it is), but that it is so simple. Silica oxide beads in a bean bag are placed inside a foot-shaped holder and absorbs moisture from the shoes.
There is no need for heat, which can wilt the shoe, and no need for power either, so you can travel with them and also keep them at hand for immediate transfer into the shoes.
You get about six to ten uses of the Drysures and then there is a straightforward re-activation process using the oven.
One of the simplest golfing gadgets we’ve tested and one of the very best.
