How to dry your shoe on a rainy day?

I used to dry my shoes in the oven which was set to a very low heat. This is now history! I can't remember who taught me a better way to do it, but must be a church sister!
My fridge is now 28 years old. Yes, 28! And it is still running fine. It has an external heating/cooling grill. As the compressor is switched on (for cooling), heat is generated. So, all I need to do is to hang all the shoes on the grill. Overnight, the shoes are all dry! Perfect! Unfortunately, most new fridge has concealed cooling grill. So this method may not work.
Do you have a better idea/way to share?

i used to do exactly that as well when i was young.

now, we use the heater to dry our clothes in holland.

by the way, your old fridge may cost you more energy bill, is it more co2 friendly as well?

maybe this won't work for shoes, but in an emergency my mum used to stand there with the hair dryer on pointing at the clothes!

dread to think of the wasted electrcity though...
