I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to store my shoes and there are so many kinds of storage racks, I was really amazed.
Now, before you get the impression that I’m one of those ladies who owns dozens of pairs of shoes, I’m not, but I do own about ten pairs of shoes. And to be honest, since my feet healed and I discovered there are actually comfortable heels available I’ve been thinking about buying a couple more pair of dress shoes.
Right now I store my shoes in a Pocket Over the Door Shoe Organizer which holds ten pair of shoes.
While it’s meant to hang over the door, Mr. A hung it on the wall because we don’t like the idea of putting extra weight on doors. I have seen doors break off the hinges (it happened to my sister more than once) so I don’t put anything on doors.
This shoe rack is working for now, but I am really looking for something more permanent.
If I had a big walk in closet, I consider owning this next one called Storage Chest Roller Closet Cube. Isn’t that cool? It holds twenty four pairs of shoes. While I don’t see myself ever owning two dozen pairs of shoes, the little cubby holes could be used to store other items. Like my matching purses. Heh. Not.
This Household Essentials Revolving 4-Tier Shoe Tree might fit in the corner of my bedroom, and would also hold 24 shoes. Again, I probably don’t need to house that many shoes, although perhaps we could put Mr. A’s shoes up there. No wait. He mostly wear steel toed boots. This rack probably wouldn’t be able to withstand those heavy work boots. Besides it would probably look funny with big dirty work boots hanging from it. Don’t you think?
Check out this one, the Whitmor Floor Shoe Tower… this one holds FIFTY pairs of shoes! LOL!
This White Frost 15-pair Shoe Cubby by Storage Solutions is pretty cool, again if I had a big walk in closet, it would line one wall with little cubby holes. The picture makes it look like it is at least five feet tall, but each cubby is only 6 inches square. So it is only 30 inches tall. I guess for that height you could stack a second one on top and have room for 30 pairs of shoes.
This ATHome Contemporary Shoe Rack would be perfect for a family that takes their shoes off when they come in the door. I can see this one sitting right beside the front entry way. I visited a lady’s house once that had white carpets, and you had to take your shoes off before entering her house. I don’t think I could ever live in a house with white carpet. Having beige carpet has been enough of a nightmare.
This Stackable Shoe Rack in Mahogany is distinctly masculine looking. I can see it perched up on the shelf at the top of a man’s closet.
So what about you, how do you keep your shoes? Do you keep them neatly lined across your closet shelves, or are they in a jumble on the floor of your closet?
