Need Help with shoe storage!

Posted by swmbo (My Page) on

Hi, I'm new here, I have been a lurker for some time and have received quite a number of useful tips, I also enjoy the friendly and helpful spirit that is shown here, I wonder if you may be able to help me!
I need some ideas for storing DS shoes. At the moment they are all in a basket at the bottom of his wardrobe. I would like to improve on this as it does not look the best. He has about 6 pairs - he has quite a long available floor space at the base of his wardrobe - nothing else is kept there except a small backpack. He has 2 large sliding wardrobe doors, so I am unable to use a over the door shoe organizer.
Any suggestions would be very appreciated, and also if you would like more info, just let me know . Thanks :)

My husband like the two level rack type shoe holders like the link below. It's just right for six pair of shoes. I prefer mine just to be lined up neatly on the closet floor. We also have sliders on our entry closets and a small rack will keep them within easy reach on just one side.

Thanks Gloria, I have had thoughts of a shoe rack like you described. It is good to hear that your hubby likes that style.
Shoes are a bit of a problem in our home, we have tried hanging shoe (cloth) bags in wardrobes, boxes, storing them in an old 6 drawer dresser in the garage etc and I am running out of ideas, I did not know if there was another alternative that was working for some of you, I would love to hear them!
Thanks :)

This might not work for your son, but it is about the neatest shoe storage solutions I've seen. It's pretty enough to go right by the front door.
