Today's tip isn't necessarily "tasty" in the normal sense of the word, but if you've set a New Year's resolution to start a fitness regimen, it'll still come in handy. In fact, I'd venture, it'll be helpful to anyone who wears shoes.
Next time you get caught in the rain/snow in your favorite pair of shoes, stuff them with newspaper when you get home. The newsprint will help the shoes retain their shape and will also draw out the moisture. If the shoes are particularly wet, you will want to change the paper out several times to get the most benefit.
