The Boot and Glove Dryer Helps Avoid Stepping into Soggy Shoes

Forced Air Technology has developed a boot and glove dryer that drives heat directly in and around your protective gear so that they can dry thoroughly.

Wet gloves and boots are a big downer, and they are almost inevitable with all the rain and slush in places like Japan or Hong Kong where they have annual long-lasting typhoon seasons. With spring and winter counting for half the year, wet season dominates the dampened souls of people, especially commuters.

The compact contraption is fast and quiet and can dry up to a pair of boots and a pair of gloves within an hour, meaning you can go back out there and shovel a second round of snow without stepping into damp smelly shoes. The machine effectively removes all moisture and eliminates any bacteria and mold that could have grown inside the moist soles and fingers.
