A Skier's Must-Have: Achieve 100% Bacteria Elimination From Your Ski Boots

Posted by Desmond Mayne

After a long day of skiing on the slopes boots inevitably get wet. This is no surprise when you stop to consider that feet contain 250,000 sweat glands, which translates to one cup of sweat every day. Skiers are faced with the 'wet boot problem' after just a few runs, and it is just plain uncomfortable wearing sweat drenched boots the following day. Sweat inside your ski boot also makes for a perfect environment for microbes. The ski boot is a working model for the breeding of harmful bacteria, enabling it to multiply at blazing speeds. Though we may not be able to visibly see this natural phenomenon, the smell is often hard to disregard.

The ski boot hygiene problem persists amongst all skiers. Everyone understands the need to dry their boots after each ski session, but what about deep inside the boot where the light doesn't shine? Williams Direct Dryers has found the solution to drying your ski boots, work boots, hockey skates and all types of footwear!

We have developed specialized arms (projectors) which are able to access those hard-to-reach places. You'll notice our arms are angled at a tilt that is specifically designed for boots. This is advantageous, as the forefoot area of the ski boot is awkward to dry by any other means. Our ski boot dryers implement full drying action using our patented Direct Drying™ Technology. It's simple, just slip your ski boots onto a WDD dryer and bacteria elimination immediately begins.

According to an independent study by Akron Children's Hospital, continued use of WDD Dryers virtually eliminates all bacteria. With WDD's Direct Drying™ Technology, microbe load and variety is effectively eliminated by 100% based on consistent use. Our dryers are beneficial for your health and overall well-being.
