Another factor that gets me a bit concerned about leaving the shoes out in the air on the shoe racks is the heat in my house... our house is always at at least 78 degrees fahrenheit (~26 degrees celsius). Perhaps leaving the shoes out exposed in that temperature may be bad for the shoes?

I'd love your input at your earliest convenience, gentlemen! Much appreciated in advance!

Mine are on racks or in my closet. Not in shoe bags or boxes. Too difficult to find shoes when they are all out of sight

Not sure whats best but i usually keep my dress shoes in bags and boxes. My casuals and boots (at least the ones that are worn most commonly are with trees on a shoe rack to make easy to grab).
78 degrees? Man thats hot. The heat will not turn on in our apt unless it drops below 67. The ac is blasting all of summer to keep it also at 67 or so. Fall and spring in boston are perfect temps in general

I insert shoe trees & then store them in their bag.

26 degrees Celsius is a quiete a few degrees warmer than 'room temperature'. I think 21 to 24 degrees are generally accepted as room temperature.

Shoes you've worn have warmed up & the leather last molded to your feet shape.
By inserting, you're returning the last to it's original condition, the cooler temps help the last 'cure' or freeze in that shape.
I doubt 26 degrees will prevent the curing.

Off the feet. Shoe trees inserted. Wipe down with damp cloth. On a rack for about 48 hours after wearing. Maintenance. In bags. In boxes. See ya in a couple weeks to do it again.

I keep my with the shoe trees inserted in the box in my shoe cupboard but not always in the shoe bags unless I am storing them away for a while or travelling. I also like to brush or clean my shoes every time before wearing.

I also think that the shoe trees from EG are one of the best as they fit the last and shape of the shoes so well, I do have other shoe trees which I use for my shoes and boots but the EG ones fit perfectly with their shoes.

Exactly what I do. I want to see them in the morning for inspiration.

Yep this is my routine almost to the T. Placing them in shoe bags keeps the dust off of them, placing some of them in boxes is because I've run out of shoe racks and places for shoe racks. However keeping the dust off of them especially when there are so many of them I see as a good thing, a very good thing indeed.

Mine are all on top of my wardrobe(s). I find the boxes with description (& sometimes photo) actually help me keep things organized..

Indeed. It might be a month or so before I revisit a pair of shoes. I could just imagine the dust build up. In addition they help protect a bit (not much of course) should animals or kids knock things over. As mentioned in my previous post. The boxes do a good job of keeping things organized. EG bags all look the same. If I'm looking for a certain pair I hit the light green boxes first & then the description nets me the right pair everytime.

Yep, exactly, I forgot to mention the label on the box. Very easy to find this way. Maybe not as easy as seeing the actual show, but when it comes to keeping the dust off the minimal trade off off is worth it. Besides its possible to stack when in boxes and I can't do that when they are not in the box.

But if you ask me that's why they are called dust bags in the first place. But to each his own.

I totally respect and understand those methods to storing but it feels a bit excessive no? I mean I can understand seasonal shoes be put away until it's the right time to wear them but it seems like a pain in the ass in the morning to sort through boxes and look at pictures of your shoes to figure out what your gonna wear. If you have the time/energy to do it then more power to you but I've had mornings where I know I was going to wear a specific shoe and changed it because I looked at my shoe rack and found one better suited for my outfit.

I dont think they need to be stored in boxes. I personally do it because of functionality. I can stack them and makes it easier to store and keep track.
Its not just my shoes. I personally have a bit of OCD when it comes to stroing and organizing so I have sweaters, ties etc... in boxes. All suits are in garment bags.
My wife is always annoyed bc everything in drawers is in boxes also haha

And I absolutely respect that. I guess maybe to me in theory it sounds wonderful but in execution and maintaining it I wouldn't be able to

Same, except I keep my suede shoes in bags on the rack so they don't get that light coat of dust over time.
