How to pack boots, sneakers, and other types of shoes for shipping?

Whether you are posting new or used shoes abroad or across the country, follow our tips below on how to pack and protect them during transport:

  1. If necessary, clean the shoes and dry them well.
  2. Put paper balls inside each shoe to keep its shape during shipping.
  3. Bubble wrap each shoe separately and, if possible, put them in their original box.
  4. Put the shoes in a shipping cardboard box of the appropriate size. If applicable, always use the original box as an inner container for your shoes and the shipping box as an outer one.
  5. Fill the shipping box with cushioning materials (packing peanuts or crumpled paper) to prevent the shoes inside from moving during transport.
  6. Seal the box with duct tape and label it, if necessary.

How to mail shoes internationally?

Posting shoes abroad is quite easy; you can do it through an ordinary postal service or by courier. All you need to do is pack your shoes properly, using all the necessary packing materials (see our packing guide above) and order the right shipping service.

How to ship shoes internationally without the original box?

Is it possible to post shoes without any box at all?

The answer is both yes and no. Some postal and courier services allow sending some small and light shoes in bubble mailers instead of boxes, while others would require using a shipping box to dispatch any kind of footwear. As for Eurosender, we cooperate with various transport companies that have different packaging requirements in place. Yet, in general, to ensure that your shipment is protected to the maximum, we would strongly recommend using a cardboard box for posting your shoes abroad, as otherwise, the courier driver may reject to pick up the parcel.

To find out how much does it cost to ship shoes by parcel service with us, just enter the shipment details in our booking tool.

In case shipping shoes abroad with Eurosender, will my parcel be insured for damage or loss?

You will be covered! The amount of insurance with Eurosender depends on the shipping option you choose and on the type of items you are sending.

What is the cheapest way to ship boxes with used shoes and clothes to charity organisations with Eurosender?

How to pack shoes in a suitcase?

There are various tips on how to pack shoes in a suitcase depending on what type of shoes you are packing, whether these are sneakers, high heels, or bulky boots. Yet, a general recommendation is this: to save extra space in your suitcase when packing your shoes in it, consider wrapping each shoe separately in a plastic bag and place them with their flat surface against the wall of the suitcase, whether in one or different parts of the latter.

If in the process of packing your shoes in suitcase you realise that there is not enough space for them inside your baggage, we recommend you to refer to our transport solutions to ship your shoes in a fast and safe manner to any destination of your choice, be it domestically or abroad.

Can I send a package in a shoebox?

Yes, you can normally do it, including via Eurosender, but under certain conditions. It is very important that your shoebox is in good condition and is made of rigid cardboard. Also, you have to properly seal your box with adhesive tape before sending it as a package. Please note, however, that each transport company may have different demands as to what packaging you use for your shipments, which is why we recommend that you use standard shipping boxes for dispatching your packages.
