THE now have a product that will absorb the moisture and odour from your racing shoes, well not specifically racing shoes, any shoes really. The name of the THE Dry Sock may be a little misleading. It's a pair of bags that seem to be full of a bead like substance, all you do is simply pop them in your shoes overnight and let them do their thing. When you are using the shoes again you hang the Dry Socks out to air.
The whole idea of the Dry Sock is quite simple and convenient, but how do you test then during winter when it's too cold to crack a sweat? I thought I would put them through an extreme test, far beyond what they would normally be used for. Completely unrelated to BMX but relevant to the level of testing, I decided to use the Dry Sock during an inline hockey tournament. During the winter inline hockey skates can take some time to dry after a sweaty game, and playing a game every second day means that your skates are constantly wet and cold. This is where the Dry Sock came to the rescue. After each game I put the Dry Sock in the boots and by the next day the boots where dry and the Dry Socks were damp.
I assume that the Dry Sock could be also used to dry gloves or maybe even a sweaty helmet, but haven't tried.
