Storing you shoes: Bags or no bags? - Page 2

post #16 of 57
Unworn (yes, I know) and seasonal shoes are stored in bags with trees until the appropriate season. My regular rotation is shoved into every nook, cranny, and storage area of my studio apartment (armoir-6 pairs, underneath the futon-7 pairs, hanging shoe organizer- 5 pairs).

Do you put shoe trees even in unworn pairs?

Of course

though mostly only the cheap plastic ones, I'm working my way towards replacing them with wooden ones but it's difficult to get to that particular shop that sells them cheap.

I do. I only have 7 pairs of quality shoes and the only shoes I haven't worn are some black Lattanzi shoes. I have kept trees in them, I plan to wear them to some of my fathers' performances at Benaroya Hall this month. I had an aversion to black shoes long before joining this forum and am still apprehensive but the performances are formal and I don't want to shame the family name.

No. I found that newsprint paper (not the newspaper, just stock brown paper), does wonders for maintaining a creaseless leather plane.

trees + bags. My more expensive shoes, such as John Lobbs and Edward Greens, I store in their original boxes. Everything else I have on racks. My hope is that someday I can build some sort of racks that will protect them all from dust plus let me keep them out of their bags and boxes so that I can look at them whenever I want.

LOL, looks like you sure got your priorities straight!
More shoes, more shoes, I'd give up square footage for shoes.

I keep all my lace-up ankle boots and western boots out on shelves all around my bedroom.

At one point someone poked their head in, saw all my boots and remarked, "It looks like you are living in your closet."

I can't think of anything more interesting to decorate one's walls with than one's footwear collection. Can you?

From what I understand, aportnoy would need a mansion to fit all of his shoes.

I use the bags to line Container Store shoeboxes.
