Travel shoe bags: zipper or drawstring?

by kaori

How do you pack shoes in your suitcase?  It is easy to find portable shoe bags online or in a shop.  You can even use plastic bags, and a big ziplock bag can do the job as well, but isn’t it better to use reusable bags and look good?  Organizing Consultant Marie “Konmari” Kondo said that “Place each shoe in its own cloth shoe bag. Even better: if the design of the shoe bag sparks joy, as well,”  when she shares her tips on packing with PopSugar.

Interesting…I do not particularly like packing, so why not have a shoe bag that sparks joy?!


Shoe bags keep the shape of the shoe, and prevent the shoe from getting dusty and wet. Also, shoe bags can be used as storage when you are not traveling. However, shoe bags tend to be heavier and pricier than other options.
