My main hobby is cycling and I have always been very focused on maintaining my bike and kit. I think it prolongs the use and improves performance. My only truly worthwhile walking kit are my new Meindl boots which I’m maintaining exactly as directed by the shop. The issue I have is drying boots. Previous pairs I would put on the radiator or in front of the fire. I now understand this is not a good idea and I’m simply keeping the boots at room temperature - fluctuates 16-20C - away from direct heat. The boots got quite wet on the surface on Thursday. This morning they are still far from dry. So two questions; Is there a correct way to speed this up? In terms of maintenance does it matter if I can’t get the boot fully dry before the next walk? You’ll gather I’m a very inexperienced walker.
