Once the trends seasons transition or the famous brands publish new arrival products, fashion icons start crazy buying kinds of shoes. After the excitement, the left packages become a problem; some of them have indeed excellent designs, and most people are unwilling to throw them away. Let’s see what everybody does to deal with these empty shoe boxes.
To throw these boxes into the garbage can directly maybe is what most people do, especially those non-worth collection value and ugly looking ones. It will be better to unfold them with a scissor and stack them tidy before throwing them. It will be a great help to the waste treatment’s job. Of course, you can also sell these corrugated papers to the salvage stations and earn some pocket money.
Most people have more or less collectormania. Many products have excellent designs on their packages for better promotion, or have solid quality. Just talk about the construction, the paper shoe box has not much different from the ordinary storage box and drawer. Why not take the empty shoe boxes as a substitute?
Maybe you got a big wardrobe or shoe cabinet at home, they still can not provide a good enough storage environment for shoes. Especially when you got a lot of shoes, most of the time they were just lying in the cabinet and got a layer of dust after a long time.
One shoe box is designed for one shoe. Especially for those high boots, they are hard to find a fittable place for placing but their original packages. And typically, there are notes on the package boxes about the shoes’ size, picture, and publish date. It helps you find the shoes you want quickly.
Besides, storing the shoes in their original package also can reduce the bad smell (if you are unlucky and got beriberi.)
Some limited edition or special commemorative shoes’ package boxes also have a high collection value. The second-hand transaction is common in the sneaker fans group. Typically, the fans will remain the original packing boxes for selling at a higher price in the future.
The empty shoe boxes with simple construction, large capacity, and solid characteristics are always DIY masters’ favorite. Let’s see how they creatively remodel the empty shoe boxes.
