Whether you’re a casual player or a serious athlete, spending time in the locker room drying your shoes is not something many of us are willing to do. Tennis shoes can be expensive, and it’s tempting to want to get more wear out of them. After all, who wants to throw their money away? The problem is that if you leave your tennis shoes in the dryer after playing, they will shrink. This article will teach you how to dry tennis shoes in the dryer without shrinking them so that they last longer and look better.
How To Dry Tennis Shoes In The Dryer?
- Take your tennis shoes out of the dryer and remove the laces.
- Put your tennis shoes on a towel.
- Take another towel and fold it into a triangle shape, then double over the top of the triangle so that it’s small enough to fit in between the laces of your tennis shoe.
- Place this folded-up towel in between the two laces at the ankle section of your tennis shoe and hold them together with one hand while using your other hand to pull down on each lace, stretching them out so that they can dry inside their own space, without pressing against each other or touching any other part of your body. This will take some time, but don’t worry if it takes you longer than 10 minutes to get through this step because it’s normal for it to take some time for athletic shoes to dry completely when they are not pressed against anything else or have been stretched out like this by using this technique.
- Once your tennis shoes are completely dry, you can remove them from the towel and put them back in the dryer for another 15 minutes or so to finish drying them completely.
- To keep your tennis shoes from shrinking after you’ve dried them, put them in your tennis bag or a shoe bag to keep the air out of them and stop the drying process from happening again. This will also help prevent any moisture from entering your shoes so that they don’t become too wet and start to smell bad while they are still in their original shape.
How To Prevent Tennis Shoes From Shrinking In The Dryer
- If you have a tennis shoe that has been stretched or stretched quite a bit, it’s likely to shrink in the dryer. So if you’re not sure, just throw them in the dryer on low and let them cool off for about 10 minutes before trying to remove them.
- If your shoes are brand new and haven’t been stretched out yet, they should be fine. Just put them on the drying rack and leave them there overnight while they dry.
- If your shoes are new but have been worn a lot, toss them on the floor of your closet or somewhere else that is well-ventilated so they can air out. When you go to take them out of the box tomorrow morning, check their size before putting them on to make sure they haven’t shrunk during this time period.
- If your shoes are new but have been stretched out a bit, you will still need to put them in the dryer on low for about 10 minutes. You can also put them in a bag with some tennis balls or any other small ball and throw them in the dryer. This should stretch out your shoes enough that they should be fine even if they are brand new.
- If you have an old shoe that has shrunk a lot, or even just an old pair of shoes that is not brand new anymore and has been stretched out a lot, it may shrink more than usual after you take them out of the box. So take this into account when taking your shoes out of the box tomorrow morning to make sure they don’t shrink too much.
- Another way to prevent shrinking is to put tennis shoes in a bag with some tennis balls or any other small ball and throw them in the dryer with your shoes. The balls will help them dry and prevent shrinking.
How To Repair Tennis Shoe Soles On Your Own?
- Take your tennis shoe out of the plastic bag and lay it flat on a hard surface, such as a table or countertop, with one sole facing up and the other facing down.
- Cut off both sides of the sole where it meets the upper or midsole section of your shoe, so that you have two pieces that are approximately 1 inch thick each (the thickness can vary depending on how much wear is left in your sole). You may need to use scissors to cut through some layers of leather but not others.
- If the sole is cracked, or if there are holes or tears in it, you will have to be more careful than with intact shoes because the conventional shoe repair method of applying glue can result in a permanent hole in your shoes. You can use an X-Acto knife to create a hole by cutting around the area that needs repair.
- To fix holes, apply some glue to the edges of the hole and press them into place using a wooden toothpick or pencil eraser. When using glue, make sure that you work quickly so that you don’t get any on your fingers as it hardens quickly; otherwise, it can be difficult to remove later.
- You should be able to use these instructions for repairing holes in most types of shoes, although some may require more careful work than others (for example, boots and high-top shoes). As you learn how to repair these types of shoes yourself, you will your hands or clothes.
- If you want to repair the toe of your shoe, take a piece of leather and fold it over the bottom of the shoe, then secure it with double-sided tape. You can use a hot glue gun or a regular glue stick to apply the glue to the leather.
- You can use duct tape to repair tears on your shoes, but make sure that you don’t put too much pressure on them as this might result in holes in your shoes as well.
