Stuffing them with newspaper is best. We do this for our kids shoes all the time. Works like a charm.

Suspend a box fan facing upwards between two chairs (make it like a bridge between 2 chairs). Remove laces from sneakers and put sneakers top down on top of the fan then turn the fan on. That should speed up the drying.

You don't have to eat the whole thing.

stuff them full of newspaper and dry in front of a cool air vent. The heat will destroy the foam and rubber.

also..might be a good idea to invest in a 2nd pair of shoes to alternate.

I wouldn't put them in the dryer. Try stuffing them with newspaper which will help absorb the moisture.

I got caught in a huge thunderstorm while running today and my sneakers are soaked. I'm afraid they won't dry before tomorrow. It's too humid to air dry outside. Can I dry them in the dryer without causing damage?

If hunger isn't the problem, food is not the answer.
