The footbed insert is glued into the bottom of my VFF and I suspect it will be really hard to get them back into position and they might not stay in place.  The glue must be there for a reason but as far as I could find Vibram said NOTHING about cleaning and drying these footbeds on their website.   But it's been 24 hours since I washed them and it seems like they will never dry.   What about putting them in the dryer very briefly on "air-only" no-heat setting?      Has anyone actually just removed the footbeds for drying, and how has that worked?  Recommendations welcome.

I remove the insole after every use. And especially after washing.

how is it possible to remove the insoles in vffs, they are glued and sticthed into place and why would you want to? lastly spin and air dry takes around a dry during any season apart from summer.

Komodos have inserts. They are glued in but a good tug will take them out. I pull them out before washing. And dry them separately. Med-Low heat. Dry in about 40 mins.

I have Komodos and just went on a hike through some long trails here in Florida and some of it was very swampy, my entire foot got soaked.  I took them home washed them in the shower with me, and after squeezing as much water out as I could, put them up to dry.  I hooked the inside of each the shoes on a hanger (the point of the triangle hanger) and used a small d ring on the inside to keep them on the hanger.  Then placed this in front of a fan, a few hours later they were dry and clean.

Since my Air Conditioner is running 100% of the time (or seems that way!) here in the midwest usa I put my sweat soaked or newly washed VFF's on top of on of vents inside.  Seems better than letting them smolder in my garage after a run.
