You’ve done your fashion homework and satisfied your love of shoes by purchasing several pairs of high heels for dressy occasions, flats for afternoon lunches, athletic footwear for your daily workouts and boots for inclement weather. If you’re truly passionate about footwear, your shoe count may be in the hundreds. Knowing how to properly store your shoes will preserve the life of your footwear and bring proper organization to your closet.
Deciding on a Shoe Storage Strategy
Many people who love their shoes are also concerned about storing them. When you run out of space and stack your shoes on top of one another, you increase the risk of shoe damage. The sharp heels of one shoe may dig into the leather covering of another, leaving marks and dents.
To prevent this problem, examine your shoe storage space and organize your closet. If your closet is small, you may need to take advantage of other spaces in your home. For example, identify doors in the home that can accommodate a hanging shoe rack. Bathroom doors or unused rooms may be good options. You might also take advantage of space in your garage to store out-of-season shoes inside shoe boxes. Such boxes may also fit under your bed.
Finding the Right Shoe Storage Devices
Depending on how much space you have for your shoes, you’ll want to purchase shoe shelves, racks and boxes. For best options, visit stores that primarily sell organizational products. You’ll find more varieties from which to choose. Be sure to measure the space in your closet, under your bed and in other locations before making a purchase.
