People step into puddles or walk in the snow and invariably, their shoes get wet.
That is why a shoe drying device is a perfect item to dropship on Black Friday.
Some models emit ultraviolet light along with heat so that in addition to removing the moisture from the boots, your customers will be able to remove bacteria and disinfect their boots which is a huge plus point and makes them unique.
The design of the shoe drying rack is also unique and looks like a racing car which adds a lot of aesthetic value to the product.
These devices work at 220V and 10W and so can be used in the United States.
They are of a high quality and are durable and also have a cable outlet protector so that their cables won’t get harmed easily.
You can buy them for just around $6 from AliExpress and sell them for $20 and make a heavy profit.

Be sure to upsell this item with some trendy shoes in order to increase your profit.
6. Waterproof Shoes-
If you don’t want to sell a shoe drying rack, then how about some waterproof shoes!
These items will have heavy sales on Black Friday because of the same reasons as a shoe drying machine- there is a lot of rain and snow around and they are in heavy demand.
Your waterproof shoes however need to be different from the rest in order to sell a lot.
How about ones which glow in the dark, or have LED lights in them! That will cause your customer to think that they are awesome and will look good in the rain and they will buy them up quick.

Upsell these translators with a memento of the country they are going to visit so that they have something with them even before they reach the location as that will increase their desire to reach their dream destination all the more.
