Am I just extremely lucky or something, because I have never had my boots get wet so that I have to actually let them dry, not even the outside.

leaving the liners out of the boots in an unnatural position can cause the shape to change and creates creases or folds where there might not have been before, resulting in pressure points and maybe even loss of blood flow in certain parts of the leg when you put them back on. what i do is leave the liners in the boot, do up the laces and put them on a boot dryer. it keeps the shape of the boot, helps maintain the stiffness and generally helps them last longer and durable.

Really it depends on your boot. Does it have an internal harness sewn onto the shell? The liner is probably going to be fine, but what about the stuff inside the shell?

A boot dryer is probably all you need and they are worth it. Even if you are pulling the liner, dryers can make a huge difference. Especially if you are stringing a lot of days together in a row.

$50-$100 well spent.

Whether or not I take the liners out depends on the boots, my pair before the ones I use now were so tight I had no choice or I'd struggle forever to get my foot out of the boot no matter how loose I could possibly make them. My current boots which are just as comfortable, I can pull my feet out with ease without removing the liner.

To let my liners dry out, I keep my boots open in a well ventilated area and forget about them until the next time I went riding - which is typically a day or two later. Never had a bad odor come from my feet or boots.. except maybe freshmen year of high school during football season, but that's another story. That involves hookers, cocaine and lots of donkeys.

Oh, and there was never any noticeable wear on any of my liners. No matter how much use I got out of a pair of boots, my liners have usually looked fairly mint aside from them being molded to my feet. For what it's worth, I've mainly stuck with K2 for boots.
