Shoe Boxes are an undoubted emblem of the shoe item that they carry within themselves. In times where exclusive and individual publicity about a shoe product is a rare find, these boxes make the best of their efforts to promote the packaged item to the maximum and present it to the target audience in such a way that they find themselves compelled to make an impulsive purchase. Manufactured mostly out of Kraft or rigid cardboard these boxes can be effectively customized to bring out the salient features of the shoe they carry in the most prominent way.
Attractive Packaging Design Exist
Shoe Boxes used to create a picture of a square box with a detachable top lid previously. Times have changed and shoe packaging has also been revolutionized and revamped like all other product packaging items. A box for shoes is not something presumable anymore. Packaging vendors are introducing new and improved styles of shoe boxes that are a hit in the market in terms of their appearances and creativity.

The Apollo Box
As the same suggests, this is shaped like a fighter plane. Hence, naturally, it is used for shoes made specifically for running. The most unique thing about packaging design is that makes a strong statement besides being visually attractive. The statement it makes is about speed. It effectively conveys the message that the shoes will make one tech their top speed and aid them in running. Hence its unique shape sets it apart from regular footwear boxes that are made for running shoes as it complements the nature of the shoes inside it more effectively. The shoes are also placed inside in a way that maximizes the appeal of the packaging. They are placed just like they are about to be launched forward, which inspires the customers whenever they look at it.
The Craftsman's Dream
Most of the shoe boxes open vertically which has been the standard in shoe packaging for years. But this box bucks the trend and goes for something that makes it stand out: it opens and closes horizontally. But that is not the only thing that makes it unique. Its elegant design is one to be cherished too. The sides of the box are cut so elegantly as if it were done by a master craftsman. The logo can be incised on one side of the box to make it look stunning. It contains different pieces which are cut so precisely that they fit together smoothly when the box is closed. But precision elegance does not and should not mean fragility. These are corrugated shoe boxes having considerable levels of strength and durability. It is also less likely to be thrown away, which people mostly do to shoe boxes, giving it a respected position amongst those who want waste to the minimized.
The Minimalist Solution
Given the concerns around climate change, it is understandable that brands are striving to manufacture shoe packaging that needs fewer materials and lower amounts of energy. And the minimalist box first introduced by Puma is one of the best when it comes to cutting down the use of resources for packaging. This box is made from a single piece of cardboard. Yes, a single piece of cardboard which is made into a complete box without the need for extra cardboard. It is folded around for making it into a complete, fully-fledged box. Traditional shoe packaging needs a lot of cardboard but this box is a breath of fresh air in the world of packaging. It is also reusable which makes it the perfect eco-friendly box for everyone. It is also great for those who want minimalist packaging for their footwear.
The Tubular Design
From its name, the idea behind the box's design becomes apparent. It is designed as a tube that appeals to customers who are fond of minimalism. It is also a major attraction for those for whom waste is a major concern. Its elegance and uniqueness are undeniable and can enchant anyone. It would not be difficult to say that only a few brands manage to convince their customers for keeping their shoe boxes. Because most people usually discard their shoe boxes storage after they have taken out the shoes. But this box is unique in the sense that it makes people keep it. Beautiful illustrations can be printed on it that makes it even more alluring and charming. One pair of shoes can easily fit into this box making it a perfect option for individualized sales.
