Great Product Aug 16, 2006
By Bill N.
I bought two of these Dry Guy Boot Dryers and have been very happy with their performance. I play a lot of sports, and in the summer especially my shoes become drenched with sweat. Without a dryer it would take several days for my shoes to dry completely, and as a result I was always playing in wet stinky shoes -- even though I was rotating 3 or 4 pairs (I play a lot!). Now after I get off the court I stick them on the Boot Dryer and after 3 - 6 hours they are usually totally dry, and ready for my next game. I can't imagine how I got by without a dryer before. I do have a few suggestions for changes that would make this a 5 star product. First, the timer has a max setting of around 3 hours. For damp shoes this is okay, but for soaked shoes, like mine usually get, 3 hours is not enough time, so I find myself having to reset the timer to get them completely dry. It is a bit of a hassle, especially at night when I am not awake to reset the timer. A simple on/off switch would be a great help. Or a moisture sensor of some kind. My second suggestion would be to make the unit a little bit bigger. I have size 13 shoes and it is hard to get two pairs onto the dryer in such a way that the heel part of the shoe is dried quickly. Otherwise, this is a great product and I usually have two of them going on any given day. I would certainly recommend it!

I never knew how much I needed this until I bought it Feb 11, 2008
By Virgil - DoverNH
Update: 5 years later 2013 - Everything I said before. DryGuy is still going strong. Kids are older now, but now after going in the snow they put their own boots and gloves on it. The waterproof gloves that you can't get the inside dry using the dryer, this also works well on those too. The dry guy is simply that appliance you never knew you needed. Awesome!
Feb 2008 Review:
I have two kids 5 & 7 in New England. After we had our January thaw I knew I needed to do something. Both my kids have two pairs of snow boots that are "mostly" water proof, except when it comes to total submersion in puddles. After a few days of thaw both sets of boots were wet. And since they are mostly water proof I couldn't dry them out overnight, and that was even after letting them sit on the radiator. The next step was to break out a hair dryer and that sort of worked except my Sons boots really stunk. Pewwww... And that still didn't do it because I wasn't willing to put in the hour or so that I would have needed. My experience with water proof gloves and the dryer told me that wouldn't work either because the outside dries, but the fingers remain wet.
I looked at local sporting good stores and they had a few different kinds of boot dryers. One for campers that uses propane and another convection one. Overall junk.
I finally decided on the DryGuy because it had good reviews. The one I ordered from Amazon was the standard body - though I was looking for the wide body, but to my pleasant surprise the wide body - your millage may very.
Once I unpacked it I was surprised that it was so small. It looked about two times larger in the picture my mind had painted. I set it up and put it on top of the dryer next to the washing machine so it would be out of the way and have a close power cord. Then I waited for another thaw as my wife made fun of me for spending so much.
The thaw came except this time we never ran out of boots. I never had two wet at any one time. My son came in with boots that were literally dripping wet from the inside. A little over two hours later for excessively wet boots and they were dry again. This thing rocks!!! One morning before school I noticed that no one had dried the boots. I stuck them on the DryGuy and went about getting everyone ready. Right before school toasty dry boots. By the way, the stink is gone as well. I'm sure that was from never getting them dry enough or taking too long to dry them in the past.
My wife has also been convinced. She was skeptical, but has been very impressed. Two things have changed for us with the DryGuy.
1. We don't keep a drying rack anymore for gloves and mittens. Stick one pair of wet gloves on with a pair of boots. It works excellent on gloves.
2. We will only need to buy one pair of better quality boots next season, since we had to buy two just to have a spare. We will eventually pay for the DryGuy in boot and glove savings. Ditto with not needing three pairs of gloves.
I have not used other boot dryers, but I'm sure this is the Cadillac of boot dryers after using it. It has literally just become and appliance for us. Meaning we don't think about it or question how well it works. It simply works.

Surfing Booties May 14, 2007
I've used the DryGuy for about a month to dry my surfing booties that always seemed to smell like week old road kill. I first tried a shoe dryer that does not have a fan but works by convection and that seemed to create the perfect environment for stinky bacteria. So far, DryGuy has worked great - though I can't find my booties by smell any more. One caveat though, the heater is not so strong that it will dry your booties quickly in a cold garage so it is much more effective if used indoors.

DryGuy Boot/Glove dryer May 06, 2007
By Anna Imgrund
My husband and son took this DryGuy on a recent snowboarding trip, and both came home raving about it. Great for wet gloves OR for snowboarding boots. That's why I chose this model, in fact. Some dryers can only be used on boots. We wanted something that could dry both.
My only recommendation is that if you need it for more than 4 or 5 people, you probably want to get the DryGuy model that can dry more equipment at the same time to avoid switching them out constantly.

DryGuy Boot Dryer a little spendy but works great Jan 08, 2007
By Dog Walker
We use the DryGuy Boot Dryer nearly every day. Although it is a little spendy it works great for drying boots, shoes, gloves and other things. It would be even better if it was a little heavier so that it wouldn't require careful balancing of heavy boots to prevent it from toppling over and if it had air vents further down on the drying posts for more thorough drying of items open at the top (like knee braces). And while most items dried just fine in three hours using the heat setting, it would be nice if it had an "on" setting for things needing a longer drying time (such as when drying thick items without heat).
