Cake pans and cooling racks from a bakery-supply house make perfect portable drying racks for wet shoes and boots. (Boots may also be hung upside down to dry by slipping the heels between pairs of pegs installed close together.) Tiny pegs by the door keep track of easily misplaced items like keys and leashes.

I love the "waterhog" matts from LL Bean, I have them at every door, and another for wet shoes and boots. Better than the rubber matts, because they help pull moisture and dirt away from boots, and they are recycled plastic!

I have rubber mats with edges on them for the floor of my car, and because they are made for a vehicle, they come in different shapes and sizes. The rubber mat for the back seat foot space of my car is about 4' long and 1.5' wide in the shape of a rectangle. That would work great for lots of wet boots and shoes!

Where would I look for a rubber mat with sides to put wet shoes in ?
