Find the Right Shoes Easily
Sort by type of shoe
Arrange your footwear by category first. It is then a lot easier to find the right storage solution for each style.
Add an over-door organizer
You can use the space behind your door to hang your shoes neatly. Make your own hanging shoe organizer or look for a pre-made model.
Make cubby holes for shoes
Don’t let messy shoes spread out over the room. By making cubby holes, you can neatly store each pair of shoes in their own area.
Hide out-of-season shoes
You don’t need to leave all your footwear out in plain sight all year. Put away any shoes that are out of season until you need them.
Slide them into place
Try a sliding shoe container or shelf for an easier life. This keeps your footwear out of sight, but still easy to access.
