Those preparing for the summer and the accompanying travel season will know that packing formal shoes can be quite a burden. In my opinion the most difficult items to pack for any trip are formal shoes. Whether you are going on a business trip or just a leisure trip, your wing tips always take up so much space with their awkward shape. Additionally, shoving them into a suitcase always seems to end up scuffing their leather exteriors. For your shoe travel storage needs, I would recommend shoe bags.
Obviously business trips require you to bring formal shoes. But even leisure trips can require your fancy shoes. Say you are going out to the theater or opera, or you would like to take your significant other out for a dinner at that five star restaurant. Formal shoes are required, and with that shoe bags are a must for shoe travel storage.
For those of you that are scratching your heads and wondering what on earth shoe bags are, and what they could possibly do to alleviate shoe travel storage – here is the answer.
Many formal shoes come with their own bag to store them in. They are provided so that the delicate materials used in the shoe do not become damaged upon transport. The soft material of the shoe bags provides a tiny barrier that keeps your shoes looking great for years.
Not all formal shoes have included shoe travel storage
However, a great deal of shoes manufacturers decided that it was unnecessary to include shoe bags. Whether or not a pair includes shoe bags really has no correlation with quality of the shoe. So if you have a very expensive pair of shoes that did not come with a shoe bag, it is recommended you purchase one as soon as possible.
While these bags will not fix the space-eating issue of shoe travel storage, they do help to maintain the appearance of your shoes. The bags are usually made out of a soft material that does not scuff or damage the leather or suede of your shoes. Also, these bags typically have a draw string that allows you to shut the bag tightly around your shoes.
The best shoe bag I have seen is the U-Zip Leather Shoe Bag. Made from top grain leather, this bag looks great and provides unmatched protection for your formal shoes.
So for your next trip, be sure to have the proper shoe travel storage in your arsenal and use these shoe bags. Your shoes will thank you for it!
