    Hooks --- large coat hooks -- will hold either from the 'toe' or from the heel... keeps them off the floor and don't take up the space that 'boxes' do.

    Hi Tina! I find the most economical and stylish ones, are the variety of ones you can find from Ikea and the Container store.

    I'm using wooden crates stacked on top of each other for our shoe storage.

    They make plastic over the door hanging shoe holders that hold something like a dozen pairs of shoes, supposedly. My wife has one and some pairs fit in one pocket and other shoes only fit one shoe to a pocket. You can also hang it on the wall.

    Personally I think the cutest idea would be to make a small bench to sit on to put shoes on with two shelves underneath for shoe storage. Maybe a small lift bench for gloves and scarfs. We have a hall bench with a large storage bin under the seat, but it just holds junk. It has a matching wall shelf with pegs for jackets and hats.

    You could also get unfinished wood crates from Michaels and screw them together to make a crate tower for shoes. The slated construction would allow the shoes to dry when they are wet. Being wood, you could even staple cloth door on the crates and change then for the seasons. That way they would be little shoe garages that would hide the shoes, decorate and still have air flow. If you plan on changing the fabric doors frequently consider drilling holes in a piece of wood and use two bolts with butterfly screws to hold the fabric instead of constantly stapling.
