Put Your Shoes on Display!

Some people see shoes as completely utilitarian – they protect your feet from the ground and provide comfort and support for walking around. Others see shoes for their ability to add to existing skill in a sports game, aiding the player in moving faster. And then there are those who see shoes as items of inherent value, who cherish the beauty of a well-designed shoe. For this group, shoe shopping is more than just a trip to the store – it’s nearly a religious experience.

Put Your Shoes on Display!

And what is this group to do when they want to show off their shoes to visitors? Why, buy a shoe display case, of course. Shoe display cases allow someone to proudly display their kicks for everyone to see, but in a way that means they’re protected. The case prevents any accidental spills of the beverage of choice from landing and damaging the shoe, and keeps curious little hands from grabbing at it and tearing the fabric.

Display cases can be used for much more than a prized pair of tennis shoes. Family heirlooms can be placed inside; for instance, your grandfather’s pair of loafers he wore over from the old country. A signed pair of shoes from a famous athlete can also go inside. Because of the design of the display cases, they protect shoes from the elements, as well as from potential theft; without a key, the case is impossible to open.

When looking for a proper display case, make sure to take into account the size of the shoe. If you choose too small of a case, your shoes might not fit; on the other hand, if you choose one that is too large, it will dwarf the shoes in size and take away from the aesthetic value. Cases range in price from around $50 all the way up to $75, mostly depending upon the size of shoe they can store.

No matter what sort of value a pair of shoes might hold for you, they deserve to be protected. Keep them safe from harm and theft by storing them in a display case – but place it somewhere that you and your visitors can admire them! What’s the point of putting the shoes on display?

    Love the idea, displaying shoes is ingenious, as most women have many shoes to show off!

    This is very interesting, I would never put my shoes on display, I prefer to keep them in the closet. The only time that people need to see mt shies is when I’m wearing them. Thank you for sharing this interesting review.

    It is true I have seen many shoes on display in my life, not many in cases! Most of the time the shoes were baby shoes, something usually rather easy to display in a child’s room or otherwise. My mother used her deceased husband’s shoes as a planter in her yard ( they were old work shoes previously).
