The heels already had hangers nailed in- perfect! So I salvaged some chippy wood from a home improvement project that we completed last summer, and hung the shoes from it!

    So smart but NM would dry them out. Do you oil wooden shoes sometimes?

      All wood when used outside in weather, rain, snow etc., should be polyurethanes and sealed each spring to keep them nice. You can oil them but weather will still bother them a little, hope this helps, neat idea.
