Drying your shoes with Boot dryers Depends on what kind of shoes they are. Canvas tennis shoes/sneakers or synthetic fabric running shoes might survive a low-heat tumble dry. Good leather dress shoes would not survive in good condition.
If in doubt, let them dry naturally under a fan or anywhere out of direct sunlight. If mildew is a concern (if you live in an area with high humidity), wipe them inside and out with vinegar. If overdrying and cracking leather is a concern, wipe them down with olive oil once or twice as they get close to being dry. You might want to put them on and wear them before they’re fully dry, so they can mold to fit your feet better.

If you are looking at sneakers that are mostly fabric or mesh, wash them according to the manufacturer’s instruction, you will be fine.
If you are talking about PVC, faux leather, leather shoes, fabric heels, any dressy or work-related boots, high heel shoes, flats don’t have a lot of structure. Then putting them in the washer and fans to dry is a HUGE mistake because you will melt the glue that is part of the shoes-which will mean the shoes won’t fit right and could fall apart quite easily.
