What you want to do is, put them in the box first
. Then, once they're in the box, put them in the bags. Once you've got them in the bags inside the boxes, put the shoe trees in. It takes a certain amount of practice to do it in this order, but it's worth it.

Seriously, there's no right answer (aside from trees, which are a must). It depends on where you store your shoes, how liable they are to damage between wearings, etc. I think though that even those who use boxes or boxes and bags or bags would acknowledge that these measures do not rise to the same level of necessity as trees.
