Style for Style: Smart Shoe Storage!

There are many ways to store shoes. And, shoes should be cared for properly, especially your faves. I'm so not the only one with an abundance of what many will argue is the greatest accessory; many of you share my fascination, my love, my obsession. A few of you also recently shared your shoe storage methods and I just had to show them. Here are four different ways to store your precious footwear. What is your preferred method?

sandra werner's shoe storage is the most impressive. If only we could all have a wall of shoes! You took shoe storage to another level girl!


These are my shoes! Or well, some of them. These are my special ones that aren't for everyday. I have always done the Polaroid because I would forget about them if I didn't!


To see a couple more smart shoe storage methods,

KWM would make Martha Stewart proud with her orderly shoes on top of boxes method. This is ideal for those who can't seem to part with the fancy box the shoe came in - sentimental value?


romaniagrl uses the good 'ol shoe rack and stack method. I have one of these too and my only concern is shoes getting other shoes dirty. But this is great for a quick shoe grab or switcharoo so mine is by my entry way.

OMG A WALL OF SHOES. oh i wish. but i live with my parents and am going away to college and there's no chance for a wall haha...i stack them in two dresser drawers and i have these old stackable crate things in my closet. i tend to forget old shoes and wear the same ones over and over again, sadly. and i don't have enough boxes to do the polaroid thing, which is a great idea, might i add.

i bought a bookcase from Ikea (the Billy Bookcase with frosted doors) and that's where I keep my shoes! It's great cuz you can add shelves and adjust them to the height of your shoes.

i group my shoes by type and my ugg like boots are in the corner sides, tennis shoes and flat work shoes in the front part of the shelf on top of my closet. my flats and flip flops are on a rack that hangs on the closet rod. i leave my exercise sneakers on the floor so it can motivate me when i get home to hit the treadmill or stationary bike! i love the wall of shoes-so decadent! a girl can dream...

:oops: I'm embarassed... mine was supposed to be a joke after Sandy posted her wall. But I'm glad someone might find this idea useful, although it's not very creative or anything. Oh, and Fab, I have about five of those around my house, including one in the garage for hiking shoes, winter boots, etc.They are kind of handy, but it's hard to use with boots and I have a lot of those. ;)

I just have a shoe rack at the bottom of my closet for my out of season shoes and then my in season shoes are lined up on the bottom of my closet...I really wish I could have the wall 'o shoes though, too bad I don't have the room. I would do the boxes with polaroids thing but I wouldn't be able to reach them on the top shelf, and don't have room for the shoes + boxes on the floor.

I actually have a shoe closet- not THAT impressive, though. We have a older (1923) home and it has this narrow closet that won't even fit the width of clothes hangers, so I bought three 20-pair hanging shoe organizers and hung them on the rod. My husband doesn't have to deal with it, kids don't bother my shoes, and I can open the door and behold my 'shoe closet'. Polaroids is the best idea.
