There is a definite method to packing shoes for a trip. Here are 3.
1. If you are not using a shoe bag then keep the soles towards heaven or facing away from your clothes, for obvious reasons; soles are dirty!
2. Shoes are one of the heavier items you will have in your bag so give lots of thought to taking too many. Chose a pair that can be worn in a variety of situations. Along with the one you are wearing, you’ll have enough.
3. Use the edges and corners of your suitcase to ensure every crack and crevice are used.
