    Just buy the big GALLON SIZE Ziploc Bags. You can find em at Walmart for like 6 dollars I think..
    I put the Silica Packets under the tissue paper, but do not put ALOT of them in the box.

    keep in box still in a dark cool place...under the bed...closet...no sunlight/heat...that will cause yellowing...don't over do it with the silica packbecause that can cause cracking by keeping it tooo dry....so far all my deadstocks are immaculate even though 10yrs have passed and I should start wearing thembut my current ones are still just as good to wear...

    Just make sure that the spot you store them is dry. Moisture is bad news for stocking your J's.

    ^ but not enough moisture can lead to cracking

    I actually use seran wrap on my shoes. I dont wrap them too tight (let air get in) and the soles are still icey.

    No silica packs, but my apt is in a cool basement. But I do place the box in a huge plastic bag and seal it, but not airtight.

    Doesn't silica gel leaks after a while? If it does, then it's not good for your sneakers.

    What I do is tape my packets to the inside side of the box so that they won't have any pressure resting against them. And it's more convenient.


    Once the gel inside starts to turn yellow, I throw them out and get a brand new one.

    Seriously if you're this concerned about how to store a shoe you prob shouldn't have bought them.

    Either put them on your feet and wear them, or just toss them on a rack in the box the way they came.

    I've got shoes over 13 years old that get no special treatments and they're just fine.

    You guys put WAY too much time and effort into "stocking" a shoe.

    Just my $0.02 cents.

    if your not going to wear them just put them under your bed. you dont need any silica packs or zip locs, i dont know where people got the idea that these wereactually good for the shoes, they actually make the shoes start to crack.

    Do not put them in plastic bags
    Do not wrap them in saran wrap
    Do not wrap them in saran wrap w/ silica packs
    Do not put silica packs in box
    Remove tissue paper that comes with shoes
    Do not put them in a refrigerator

    Do put them in a cool dark place
    If you insist using silica packs, buy Damp Rid. DR removes moisture in the air like silica packs. Place one in your closet and refill when necessary.
