Ideas for organizing shoes?

I'm looking for DIY ways to make shoe organizers for my closet. I have shelving and right now have shoes stored in divided wine cases laying on their side. I'd like something that looks nicer and need some ideas that are inexpensive to do. Appreciate any suggestions!

    I know it isn't pretty, but I use clear plastic shoe boxes. For smaller things like sandals I can put more than one in a box and they will be together and clean. For boots I use small under the bed boxes and lay then out in it. I have some pairs of shoes that don't fit in the shoe boxes, I found a covered box and covered it with contact paper on the whole thing and they all fit in their without a problem. I like keeping them inside the shoe boxes, etc. so that I don't have to clean them when I want to use them if they aren't used that often.

    The dollar tree sells shoe pouches that can be hung with nails, open screw eye hook or even command hooks and if your like me I’m a shoe hound, so I lined my whole entire closet back and sides with them and they are dust free and I acquired more space for other things.

    If using any kind of shoe box take a pic of shoes and attach to side facing out. You can also put a small date on the label and if not worn--donate.
