How are you storing your shoes right now? Are they piled carelessly into your closet or are they sitting side by side? Did you know that even if you neatly store your shoes you can still be damaging them? If leather shoes are stored next to each other for long periods of time, colored leather can transfer from one shoe to another. Patent leather is especially delicate. If patent leather is pressed up against leather or plastic for an extended period of time, color transfer will occur.

A great way to store your shoes is to keep them in garment bags. This will prevent color transfer and sunlight damage. But be warned that you should never store your shoes in plastic bags. Leather and suede shoes need to breathe! If you store them in plastic, they might get discolored or moldy. Take care of your shoes by keeping them out of sunlight and making sure they do not touch each other. Proper storage is essential if you want your shoes to last as long as possible!
