Share this article:

The U.S. Postal Service yesterday introduced a Priority Mail Shoe Box that will make it easier for retailers and customers to ship any brand or size of footwear.

Designed to meet the needs of footwear and clothing retailers, along with direct to-customer businesses, the new Priority Mail box allows shippers to simply slide in a boxed pair of shoes for shipping.

The box measures 7-1/2 inches by 5-1/8 inches by 14-3/8 inches, is self-sealing, and is available at no additional cost to Priority Mail shippers.

The new box also is convenient for anyone who needs to mail shoes as a gift or for repair. Customers can use Click-N-Ship -- offered online through USPS.com -- to print a shipping label with postage and use Carrier Pickup online notification to let their local Post Office know their package is ready for pickup when their letter carrier delivers their mail the following day.
