    So does this cause your shoes to yellow at all? I would love to set something up like this, but I fear the yellow.

    I'm guessing as long as they aren't in direct sunlight, they shouldnt yellow. But good question...

    Thanks. Yes you have to buy each box, kinda a rip off but its better than boxes everywhere. They actually just stack up on top of each other.

    I actually have a Container Store right by my house so I just go there and pick them up.

    Thanks man I really love the 2009's

    Thanks man!

    You know, I was actually wondering the same thing. That's actually why I made this topic but I'm sure if I keep them out of moisterand sunlight they will be fine. If not I'm suing them! LOL

    The are alot better then cardboard boxes. Gets a lil pricey. I believe I'm up to about $400 worth of them. Also Laptop I'm a sz 13 and make sure you get the men boxes. It fits all my foams, flight and most of my Jordans and basketball kicks. Kicks like Reggie miller uptempos fit but barely.

    i thought the only reason people get these was for no yellowing.. i would just get them for clear bottom kicks that i wanna keep fresh.. unless the containers are going to preserve them better than boxes i wont mess with them.. at the end of the day it is easier on the eyes i guess... i heard the paper that comes with shoes yellow them also...

    That is a real nice set up OP.  Even with my average size collection it will take me a few hundred bucks to do a transfer.  Maybe buy 10 or so at a time[​IMG]

    The drop boxes may not work, but the other style does & they are a lot chaeper thent he drop box, if you like them. I have like 20 of the boxes & I wear a 13 also.

    Don't see the point of spending on containers, when the shoes come with a "container" itself.... the box.

    Either way, I wouldn't take the chance of exposing a white based shoe to sunlight when I'm not wearing them.

    Some of you guys spend hundreds of dollars on plastic boxes for no reason.
    Just go to target and buy a rack for $46 out the door and holds 45-51 prs of avg size shoes depending how you stack them.

    No avalanches and keeps everything nice and neat.

    I have all mine at the bottom of a hanging closet (4 feet deep, 7 feet long) on the floor. Heat rises right?
