Should you store your shoes in shoe boxes?

You’ve wanted a pair of shoes for a long while and you finally buy them. Do you store them in or out of the shoe box?

Disclaimer: Can i just say that, as a shopaholic, I keep my shoe boxes for purposes that are not always storage related. I just like to see my shoe boxes stacked up, and if i ever decide to sell the shoes, the box is always an added advantage.

Okay, I digress, back to the point.

The truth is there’s no one correct answer.

If you wear your shoes on a daily basis or frequently, then storing them outside the box is the way to go. You must allow your shoes air and dry out the sweat from the day before. – Wire Racks, Shoe trees and Custom cabinets are great options.

If the shoes are worn seasonly or only during special occasions or are very delicate, then the box is the way to go. You don’t have to store them in the original box – if you didn’t have space in your suitcase to bring the box back to Nigeria with you – But make sure that whatever box you store it in, there’s acid paper too. The acid paper helps keep the texture, fabric and shape of the shoes in tact.

I hope this helps.
