How do you properly store your shoes to prevent anything from happening to them? I’ve read somewhere that you stuff them with acid-free paper and wrap it in paper or a shoes bag and then put it away. Do any of you bees really do that? How do you store yours?

@tiff-tiff-tiff: I had Kate Spade wedding shoes and they came with the shoe bag, acid free paper, and and pretty nice box, and I’ll be honest, I had them in there, but I’m not really sure what that did, haha….I wouldn’t worry too much about your shoes, but maybe a shoe bag?

For my fancier shoes, I store them in their original boxes and tissue paper. For everyday shoes, I keep them on a shoe rack. Boots, I stuff them with tissue paper to keep their shape.

Im a shoe fiend, so anal with them. I keep all shoes in their box. If I buy shoes in the clearance stack in DSW and they dont have a proper box I buy one of those clear storage boxes or reuse a box from a pair Im throwing out. And if they come with bags/paper I use them. Not sure how effective it really is, but I cannot just throw my shoes around wherever.

@pengoala: I got my wedding shoes andd I had them out, admiring them. I eventually left, the box etc. was thrown away and now i’m left with the shoes and nothing to store them in. I didn’t want to just leave them out until the big.
I think I’m just gonna go to a shoe store and get a box they don’t want anymore.
Thanks for the responses ladies!!

@tiff-tiff-tiff: I have plastic shoe boxes for all my shoes. I tape a pic of the shoes to the end so I know what’s in each box. This was an idea I saw on TV.

@julies1949: This is a really good idea!!
My sis was saying to make sure I get the silica gel packets that usually come with it so it could wick away moisture. Do you do this too?

You mean normal people don’t put them in vacuum sealed boxes?
JK! I’m a total shoe tosser. Any GOOD shoe I’ll store in it’s box with tissue paper, but I’ve never owned a pair of shoes that really warrent too much special treatment.
