5 Ways to Store Your Shoes

By: Staff Published: November 8, 2019

The average American woman owns 19 pairs of shoes, so you can just imagine how many pairs are in the typical household. No wonder shoes are often missing or strewn about where they don’t belong!

Having designated spaces for shoe storage can help minimize the time we spend searching for one sneaker or heel – and lengthen their lifespan!

No matter your shoe storage challenge, we have a solution for you. Here are a few of our favorite solutions to common shoe storage challenges:

Does your family take their shoes off when they enter the house?

Install shoe shelves in the mudroom or place shoe shelves or a cube organizer by the door. You can even assign everyone a spot for their shoes to further organize the entryway.

Give yourself easy access to your shoes by putting a rack on the back of your bedroom or closet door.

Is your reach-in closet limited in space?

Use an over-the-door rack on the back of your closet or bedroom door (or both!) to store your shoes. It’s easy to see and grab them – and put them back at the end of the day. Another option is to use a small rack on the floor.

A shoe rack takes advantage of floor space inside or outside of a closet.

Shop shoe storage

Do you have a walk-in closet or a more spacious reach-in closet?

Consider adding dedicated shoe storage in the form of built-in racks or shelves. Many of ClosetMaid’s storage systems – including SpaceCreations and Impressions have accessories made to hold your shoe collection.

Our wood closet organizers have shoe shelves that sit conveniently below a set of drawers, so your shoes are just off the floor.
