sorry, just saw this while updating my BELOVED 5 year old dryer.
I live with 6 women from 4 generations, (yes, I deserve ALL the sympathy you can spare) subsequently there are LOTS!!!! of shoes scattered throughout my house. And the successful system for any washable shoes has been using the 'dryer rack' and 'air dry'....probably had this dryer for 2 years before my logical brain allowed me to even try drying without 'heated air'...but I'll be danged if it doesn't work. Just did this yesterday with 3 pair of granddaughter's sneakers who ran outside in the rain, imitating Peppa Pig by "jumping into muddy puddles". They dried fine & thoroughly....without shrinkage or destruction.
** btw: have used the same system successfully with dirty boots, etc that required handwashing to clean (NOT able to use washing machine).
