Peet Dryers: Dry Boots and Gloves
Posted on November 26, 2013 by Snowtech

Considering how SnowTech test riders spend almost 100 days out on the snow each year, we have to keep our boots and gloves dry so they can perform properly the next day. Over the years we have tried all kinds of methods, and while our favorite is using the dry heat of a wood burning stove to slowly dry out our gear, this isn’t always practical. What we use on a daily basis are the “Peet Dryers” and have several of them at our riding facility for each of our riders. When we get in for the night, we drop our boots on top of a Peet Boot Dryer and plug it in, and come morning they are completely dry all the way through and ready to go.  [Read More...]

 

Things we like to do best on Campground Earth

He loved the outdoors and did something to start out on the right foot

The invention of the footwear dryer is a good story.

Gene Peet was among the “zealous outdoor enthusiasts” actively doing things in Campground Earth as often as he could. He loved hunting and the outdoors, but was fed up with starting out in wet, uncomfortable boots:

"Having wet boots all the time is really tough on you and your boots. Back then there just wasn’t a good way to dry out your boots before you had to put them on again.

Sitting around my kitchen table I came up with a plan to design my first boot dryer. My intention was to make a boot dryer purely for my own personal benefit." [Read more...]



At Peet Shoe Dryers...they like to say they invented dry. And after 44 years of business...this North Idaho company has created an extremely loyal following. KXLY4's Derek Deis reports. (Click here to watch the video.)



He invented one of life's simple pleasures...


"Father DRY" - founder Gene Peet - reflects on why he almost gave up on bringing his invention to the public.


He also talks about the oddest reason ever that a customer wanted a replacement dryer. (Read more...)

 

Gene Peet recently celebrated his 84th birthday. Over half of those years he's been treating feet to fresh, dry comfort.

The man ordering margaritas at Mango’s, at the finish line of the GORE-TEX TransRockies Run’s Stage Four, looked happy. As a man should be when ordering margaritas on the sun-kissed patio of a high-mountain bar in Colorado. He was happy despite hobbling around with a cast on his right leg.

“Didn’t get that during the race, did you?” I asked.

“Nah,” he said, hefting his armload of Vitamin C and tequila, “It was during training.”

Rick Thurston, 58, had planned to run the race with his wife Karen, but a stress fracture two and a half weeks ago left their entire trip in question. The couple lives in St. Maries, Idaho, which happily happens to house the headquarters of one of the sponsors of this very race: Peete’s Feet shoe dryers (“I’ve known Gene Peete for years,” said Thurston. “It’s a great product. He used to be a plumber.”)

Stumped for a teammate, Karen’s thoughts turned to a candidate both natural and unlikely: her daughter, Stephanie Hackbarth. Stephanie, 26, is an avid runner – a collegiate cross-country runner, but Karen hadn’t seen her in two years.

Why Runners Run (and Prefer Dry Running Shoes)
Posted on onlineshoes.com, April 2011

A running industry champion gets inside the minds of runners and shares insight as to why they run (and why they like dry running shoes).

Runners have an indomitable attitude that doesn’t let weather get in the way of their passion: There’s no such thing as “bad” weather. Just different kinds… Chilling wind? Invigorating! … Rain? Refreshing! … Snow? An exciting challenge!

Legendary track coach and Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman (he’s also credited with setting in motion the running boom) took it one step further when he said: “There’s no such thing as bad weather, just soft people.”

Many don’t get why runners brave the elements to “punish” themselves, scurrying about aimlessly. What is it that makes these running die-hards completely disregard the elements to undertake their running routine? There are many very good reasons people run. Here is a couple…

Movement is life
To some, it’s simply a devotion to moving. In addition to getting the body moving, running gets the blood moving and the mind moving.

Stress relief
Many enjoy running for its stress-relieving aspect. “Stress can be a cruel master of a helpful servant” is a wise adage. These are very stressful times we live in; we need to find ways to relieve stress rather than be a servant of it. And running can be very soothing therapy in dealing with stress in daily life.

Self identity
The first-ever women’s Olympic marathon champion, Joan Benoit Samuelson, described running as something that helps define you: “As every runner knows, running is about more than just putting one foot in front of the other; it is about our lifestyle and who we are.”
Whatever motivates you to run, whether you’re a beginner or a competitive athlete, the important thing is that we keep doing it and enjoying it. This brings me to some good, comforting advice to all runners concerning running shoes.

Between each run, put your running shoes on a PEET Dryer. That way you’ll put on a fresh, dry pair of running shoes to begin each and every run.

Keep the comfort comfortable. The comfort technology in running shoes today is truly amazing. Runners have many choices in outfitting their feet with footwear that add to running enjoyment. PEET Dryers enable this comfort technology to start out maximized by removing wet, sweat and odor from the last run. As a result, running shoes not only feel better, they last longer.

No more “odorrific” complaining. PEET Dryers remove the stress of having to deal with those you live with that whine about your running shoe “aroma.” (To me, that alone is worth going PEET Dry!)
