Drysure is the original wireless portable boot dryer.
Quick and dirty:
•Made of silica oxide bead bags inside a plastic case for easy fitting
•No heat or electricity needed
•12 times faster than air drying
•Wet feet lose heat 25 times faster than dry feet
•Boots dry overnight, low-rise shoes usually dry in as little as 6-8 hours
•Multi-use: re-activate with heat by placing inner bags in an oven or heater vent
•Absorb for 7-10 days before requiring reactivation
•Heatless drying is the only safe way to dry heat-moulded footwear (e.g. custom fitted ski or board boots)or other expensive materials (e.g. leather footwear)
•Cordless drying means ultimate portability: users can dry on the go without dealing with tangled cords orhard-to-find wall sockets
•Reduces bad odors and bacterial/fungal growth
•Shape is designed to target areas like the toe and heel where sweat and moisture build up
How it started:
Drysure founder James Robbins wanted a reliable way to dry boots and shoes fast, without heat, electricity, or batteries.
The idea for Drysure boot and shoe dryers first formed in Kitzbühel, Austria, after a day of extreme weather changes, ranging from from -18ºC to +4ºC.
Things got sweaty, and the thought of having to put on wet, sweaty ski boots in the morning was not pleasant. Thus the idea for Drysure was born.
How it works:
Silica gel beads are able to absorb moisture quickly in humid envrionments. This is because silica is a desiccant: a hygroscopic substance that absorbs moisture and can be used as a drying agent. Using silica gel beads is not a new idea: it had been done before but had not succeeded because the performance of the silica beads did not compete with the electric boot dryers on the market. Drysure needed a way to improve the drying performance of silica gel beads without using heat or electricity. That’s why Drysure also utilizes air for drying. Proper air flow significantly improves the moisture absorption of silica gel beads. Drysure is designed so that the silica gel beads are most concentrated around the toe and heel, where moisture tends to accumulate the most. Meanwhile, the high gloss outer shell not only makes it easy to insert Drysure into footwear, but also makes it possible to reach deep into the toe, where moisture accumulates most. Its unique design featuring strategically placed gaps allows air to flow into small vacuums created by the silica gel beads, which speeds up the drying process in turn. The combination of the silica gel beads in the inner sac and the outer shell are what give Drysure its unprecedented drying performance. The longer you wait to dry your footwear, the faster the bacteria grows. That is why it’s so important to be able to dry your footwear anywhere, anytime, and Drysure makes that possible.
