    Recently I just purchased a DC Mikey Taylor 2 and really loved it. A couple hours ago I had to go to my friend's home on my motorcycle and when I was on my way home, the weather got worse and started to rain. The rain obviously completely wet my shoes and when I finally arrived home the sun already set. I don't have a hairdryer (my mom's broke a few days ago) and I tried to soak the water out with toilet paper, but it is still considerably wet and I tried to put it under a fan and it is still going right now. What should I do? Should I just put it under the sun tomorrow to dry it? What will happen if I left it all night long while it's still pretty wet? What should I do tomorrow to restore my shoes condition? Thank you.

    You dont want to put heat on it to dry it. Make sure its got a shoe tree in and let it dry naturally rather than with a hairdryer or out in the sun.

    Once its dry brush it well with a crepe suede brush and assess the situation after that.

    Leave them to dry naturally, don't 'help' them. Then use a suede brush to 'clean' them. The final thing is look at the weather forecast next time and certainly do not wear anything decent to ride a bike - motor or push which are equally as bad as one another.
