Besides, if you fill all the bags up with shoes, where are you going to put your mothballs?
I use shoe bags except for my four most worn shoes.
All of mine are in their bags or have a felt polishing cloth wrapped around them. They are also all in their boxes... otherwise I'd never be able to store them all... picture below.
I keep all of mine bagged and in the boxes. I only wear dress shoes once or twice a week, and keeping them in the boxes is the most convenient method of storing them.
There are those who claim that storing shoes in boxes is harmful although I have yet to perceive any ill effects. After wearing a pair of shoes, I like to let them air out at least overnight (with trees in place, of course) before returning them to their box. The only time I use bags is for travel.
And for my server to introduce herself.
Yeah, but you're just after her number.
I keep my shoes bagged, at least the ones that have bags, and boxed, at least the ones that have boxes.
I bag mine when I travel. Otherwise, they stay naked and stuffed. For shoes that I don't wear very often, they stay in boxes.
BTW, is it cruel to bag your Alden in Tyrwhitt bags?
The Container STore has great see through shoes boxes.
Okay good, at least I'm not alone. I thought I was committing some kind of grave sartorial sin by not bagging my shoes.
Here's a look at how I store my shoes:
wow chap your closit is tidy??? make mine look like a charity shop in comparrison - must get the wife to let me have more space!!
but to add i keep mine in the boxes and if i dont ware them often enough then still in bags and lots of slat and moth balls an the humidity here in shenzhen/ HK is a nightmare on leather!!
I maintain a week or two worth of rotating shoes on my rack at home. The rest are stuffed into any corner of my studio with storage space. Its not very practical.

Shoe trees and bags/boxes always. Dust eats leather.
Shoes just get dirty collecting dust if uncovered. One more stressor on the leather. I'm thinking about putting some of my shoes in a storage box under the bed, (in bags), since I am running out of room in the closet.
Only travel. Keeping them bagged up seems a crime.
