Following Microsoft’s announcement to reduce support for Internet Explorer 11 even further, along with their recommendation to switch to Microsoft Edge, we, too, have now decided not to support this browser any longer. This was a conscious decision, on the one hand in order to protect you and your data, and on the other to ensure that we can implement new technologies that Internet Explorer 11 does not support.

How should I dry my shoes when I am on the road?

Perspiration is a big problem with you are on a long hike. A leather lining is able to absorb large quantities of moisture, only releasing it gradually. Modern synthetic fibres and sole linings wick moisture away from the feet. As such, all footwear, whether it is lined with leather or synthetic fibres, must be well-aired every night so that any moisture can evaporate. Open up the shoe widely, remove the insole and allow to ventilate seperately.

The shoe should be well impregnated to protect as wet and moisture from the outside. Shoes without a weatherproof membrane can also get completely soaked from time to time. In such cases, the tried-and-tested method of stuffing the shoes with scrunched-up newspaper can work wonders.
Do not dry shoes by a campfire or stove flame because the heat may affect the material. It is important to re-impregate the shoes as soon as they are completely dry.
