How do YOU organize shoes in your entryway?

As for me - I have never understood why so many people like to shed their shoes in their entryway. For me, that seems to be a major way to create clutter, and on top of that it's laziness at its best. Why not go on and shed shoes in the bedroom, or a hallway, or a closet? Anywhere but the entryway.

What are your thoughts? Do you have a good way to organize shoes in the entryway?

    I agree- I don't have a problem with shoes in the entryway because I immediately end up shedding my shoes in the bedroom...but then I am still left with the problem of keeping the bedroom organized. Nobody's perfect

    My husband agrees with you 100%!!!! He is always moving my shoes from the entryway to our closet. I know he and you and right, but I always forget and go with my instinct to walk in and remove

    I take mine off and carry them to my walkin closet to put them where the belong. I then put on my slippers. I have hardwood floors so I always wear slippers. Growing up, as kids, we were NEVER allowed to run around in our sock feet.

    Most folks take their shoes off to prevent tracking mud, snow, dirt, etc. into the house. I would suggest placing an attractive storage container that the shoes could be put in.

      I don't believe that either. Why not use a good door mat? So, it takes an extra second or so to slide feet across mat to remove dirt before walking on the carpet.

    You don't live in the snow belt. If you aren't wearing snow boots it is muddy. A lot of folks who have dogs have to clean their feet when they come in. I would rather have shoes at the door than across my clean floors.

      Snow, mud, sand....whatever. Just take the doggone shoes off, jaunt on through house and put the doggone shoes in a place where they are not staring guests in face when they enter........but then again, if you don't have guests, I suppose it doesn't matter.

    at my house it's pretty much the house law. shoes/ boots off at the door, keep the rain, slush snow wet stuff, allergens off the carpets. fancy dress foot ware is in the closets. i don't want stinky feet shoes in my bedroom. think hog farm. dairy shed.
