Some of the girls at work today asked me how I pack my shoes when I travel and we started discussing our techniques! Could you imagine having this lovely piece of luggage to travel with?
In my dreams! When I travel I always put my shoes in dust bags to keep them from getting scratched or dirty. #1 one rule for me is always pack your shoes in your carry-on! It's guaranteed to be with you the entire trip and therefore you don't have to worry about all of your shoes being lost forever. (I would die!) I'm sure the shoes appreciate it too. Have you seen how the airline employees throw your bag on the plane? Not very nice!! I usually pack my scarves, cotton tees, or pjs around the dust bags to give the shoes some cushion.
Here are some different shoe traveling items:
Bric's Magellano 'Shoe Satchel' for $890 @ Neiman Marcus
Although the "shoe satchel" looks pretty I'm not sure if it has multiple compartments for your shoes (the description isn't very clear). This bad boy definitely has compartments:
TUMI Kensington Shoe Trunk for $5,995
Fits 12 pairs of shoes but looks kind of manly to me!
Like I said, I'm a big fan of dust bags and if your shoes don't come with them you can always buy some:
2 Shoe Bags for $16 @ Walmart
Shoe Bag for $12.90 @ Neimen Marcus
($15.90 w/ personalization)
Personalized Shoe Bag for $11.95
The personalized bags could be a great Mother's Day gift!
How do you pack your shoes when you travel? Have any good tricks? I would love to know!
