Just bought some rather expensive (for me) knee high boots but not sure how to store them/look after them so they stay nice (not had a decent pair of boots before). Do I zip them up and stand them up when not wearing them? Should they be laid down? Advice welcome!!!

You need some of these

Was just comong on to say what AuldAlliance said - I have a pair of 6-yo knee high boots which still look new mainly due to always putting the boot-trees in them. Stops that crumpling-at-the-ankle look...

Agree on the boot trees - but otherwise leave them laid down rather than up, then the ankles won't crumple!

I saw on a blog the other day, use magazines rolled up. Cheaper than buying something just for that and you can read them too!

Empty mineral water bottles are another cheap option.

These are great. I bought 3 pairs of clear ones years ago. They do the job well and don't cost much.
