LG recently launched the Styler ShoeCase and ShoeCare at IFA. The smart wardrobe is designed to reinvent at-home shoe storage and care for sneakerheads.

To that effect, the Styler ShoeCase is fitted with panels that enable shoe collectors to safely store designer and luxury shoes by locking out humidity and protecting them from discoloration thanks to panels coated with ultra-violet light absorbing material.

The storage device also functions as a showcase by using a 360-degree turntable design and allowing shoe collectors to stack the shoe cases on top of one another.

Styler ShoeCare, on the other hand, aims to help sneaker collectors to take better care of their shoes with LG’s TrueSteam technology.

The company claims that this hygiene-enhancing technology can silently “refresh” four pairs of shoes with various designs and materials in a time frame of 37 minutes. Fortunately, this whole process works quietly – LG says that the noise level does not cross 35 decibels.

Styler ShoeCare is also fitted with a  Zeo-Dry filter which uses Zeolite, a high-performance drying material, to soak up moisture from shoes and eliminate odors. At the same time, LG’s multiple Moving Nozzle feature dries the interiors of your shoes and can be adjusted to fit the dimensions of each pair for optimal drying.

Users of both Styler ShoeCase and ShoeCare can remotely operate and monitor both appliances via LG’s ThinQ app.

Unfortunately, there’s no word on pricing or a release date for the Styler ShoeCase and ShoeCare, and it’s not clear if they will ever make it over to the U.S.

In the meantime, sneakerheads and shoe collectors will have to stick with old-school shoe display cases. The most advanced sneaker display case we could find that’s available to purchase right now is the Smart Shoe box-Voice Control that’s available on Amazon for $116 – it offers LED lighting and voice control.
