Designer Timur Pinar has solved the problem of cold, wet shoes with his conceptual Shoe Heater. The Shoe Heater is a plug-in device that has four rods extending upwards from its base. The rods are each designed to simultaneously warm/dry one shoe each.
Cold and wet shoes are a pain to people all around the world, but they can be an especially big pain to those living in harsh winter climates. Throwing a pair of shoes in the dryer isn't an option for some people, which is why a gadget like the Shoe Heater makes sense. Its ability to quickly warm up and dry a pair of shoes would go a long way in cold urban areas where dryer usage comes at a premium.
