I have been doing this special project since December 2012. The name 'Shoebox' is quite self explanatory for describing on what the project is all about.
The background of the project should be well understood for any shoes lover. To begin with, I always keep my shoes inside their boxes for the reason of cleanliness (to keep the dust away). It is a standard operating procedure (SOP) at my house and can not be bargained for lol. But sometimes I had difficulty to locate or to find the pair that I wish to wear. I often opened up to 5-6 shoe boxes before I got the shoes that I was looking for. Hence I set up the main objective for this special project for attaching the respective shoes photo on every shoebox.
The process was very time consuming that it took me 1.5 months to finish it. First I must take the shoebox out from the shoes cabinet and take out the shoes one by one from each shoebox. I have set up a mini studio at the corner of my living room and photoshoot session took place only when the kids were not around. Else I got continuous disturbance from them lol
Taking the photos was only the beginning of the process and relatively easy. Then it was followed by the prolonged process of selection, editing and printing the photos. The final process was to take the shoebox out of the shoes cabinet (again) and to attach/glue the shoes photo on every single shoebox.

They are very comfortable and I could stand in them for hours without enduring any pain.

I am quite satisfied with the result of this special project that I have started to do similar project for (some of) my bag collection. It is called 'bagbox' project. I will make a special post on this project when it is completed :)
