I’ve just finished a road shoe and pedal review (for the August issue) and came across these smart shoe savers along the way.
Try what you will it’s impossible to completely avoid the wet, especially here in Cape Town. Prolonged moisture exposure can result in a weaker shoe structure and – more importantly – a crappy wearing experience on your next ride. Stuffits seem to be the solution. You simply ‘stuff’ them into your shoe and they’ll be dry and smell free for the next outing. To call them ‘glorified sponges’ would be an insult, but that’s kind of the idea. Of course they work for mountainbike shoes, trail shoes, gym takkies and the like, too. Thanks to these puppy’s my shoes no longer sleep outside!
