To each his own. I probably wouldn't like half the stuff in your closet either.
I do wait 24 hours after wearing before I put them back in the boxes. I also put shoe trees in them after they have dried out. I have thought about adding a few one inch holes in the back of each box. Still not sure how much airflow they would get since the boxes are against the wall and the shoes are in shoe bags.
I went into the Allen Edmonds store when I was NYC on vacation last week with the intention of buying these shoes. When I held them in my hands I just didn't like the way they felt so I ended up not buying them. I think i'm going to end up with the Epaulet cross trainers that just came on line last week. They are in the same price range.Let us know what you think when you get them. I do like that AE is trying stuff like this.
I put a topy on some of my shoes if I know that i'm going to be walking on concrete a lot in them. Other shoes I simply keep the leather sole as is. Usually it's the more casual shoes that get the topy.
I really doubt there will be any ill effects of this. The shoes have lots more room then if they were in their boxes. I imagine they "breath" as much or more than shoes stored in boxes. Some of my shoes have been stored like this for 3 years will no effect on the leather that I can notice. Ideally, when we build our house I'm going to build a 20' by 20' closet for me and misses to share. When that happens I will build a shoe rack capable of holding all my shoes and...
I'm not sure where I got the idea from but I like it. I use to keep all my shoes in their boxes and then I lost some of those and I had shoes without a box. I wanted a way for all of my shoes to be organized and protected. It's also worth mentioning that I'm just a tad bit OCD.I did my wife's shoes the same way.
In addition to pastoring a church I also teach part time at a University.
My son came out yesterday wearing green seersucker shorts and my Epaulet Alden sand suede LWB.
X-post from the AE thread We just moved into a new place with a lot more closet space so I finally have all my shoes (well, almost all my shoes) in one place. I've been storing my shoes in the off seasons. Anyway, I snapped a few pics today of my closet.
