Large Revolving Shoe Tree

Hi, I've been lurking for a few days and thought you might be able to help. We have an out-of-control pile of shoes at the door of the garage entering the house. We don't wear shoes in the house (sorry, fly-ladies, just can't do it), so they accumulate in the garage. Really don't have room for a bookcase size shoe shelf, and the tote boxes we've been using are difficult to dig through.

The only thing I've found that worked was a revolving shoe tree I picked up at Home Depot years ago, like the picture attached, except the center rod was a tension rod that went to the ceiling, so there were about six or seven racks for shoes. Didn't take up much space, easy to use....until one of the kids broke it.

I can't find another one anywhere...has anyone seen them recently or know where to get one? Or a better idea to store shoes in a small space? Thanks!

We have a shoe on house, and not just because of Flylady. I hate, hate, hate taking off shoes, but we still accumulate quite a few.

Have you tried any of the racks that hang over the door? It looks like they make them to hold lots of shoes.

Yours does sound really neat!

I couldn't find one, and haven't seen one w/ the tension pole in the middle.

I found these:
This one has tension poles, but it doesnt revolve
from www.homefocuscatalog.com

I think this is the same one

from Stacks and Stacks

Stacks and Stacks (http://www.stacksandstacks.com) has lots of shoe storage solutionscubbies w/ doors, perhaps? If you could decide that after all there's room for a bookshelf-size solution?

Bcs storing those shoes really should be a priority, not an afterthought.

I wonder if you could find something like yours at a place that sells store fixtures?

And are you sure yours couldn't be fixed some way? Is there a metal worker or machine shop you could have take a look at it?

Thanks, ladies. I think an over the door rack will have to work now that I'm certain that the other style is unavailable. I appreciate your suggestions.

Ikea has a really cool shoe cabinet -- it's SO skinny it fits just about anywhere. One of my no-shoes-in-the-house friends has this and just loves it.

I do like your revolving shoe tree idea better, though, since you can see everything.

I need the one you describe, but I have the one in the picture you sent. It works better than anything else I've ver had, but it works best for people with smaller feet! i wear a women's size 10, and I find that the vertical space between the rows isn't really big enough. Still, like I said, it's better for me than anything else I' ve had.
