Calling all shoe addicts! Do you believe that you can never have enough pairs of shoes? Join the club. Finding adequate space for storing all your shoes can be a big challenge, especially if you have treasured pairs that are easily-damaged. Fortunately, there are many shoe organizer options for the footwear fashionista.


Many people keep the original boxes that their shoes come in. For the footwear fashionista, however, this isn’t a very resourceful choice. Clear boxes are great shoe storage options because you can see the shoes inside the box without the hassle of having to open it. This makes it very easy to find the shoes you’re looking for, especially if you’re in a rush. Also, these boxes can be stacked on top of each other or on shelves, thus saving lots of space.

Shoe fans will love the Shoe Chest, a fantastic mass-box storage option. 24 and 36 compartments hold shoes in only a few feet of space. Clear, vinyl front allows you to view the whole collection at a glance. Clear, vinyl front features a zippered closure, protecting your shoes from dust and damage.

The Set of 14 Clear Shoe Boxes allow you find the right pair without dealing with the constant open and closing of traditional shoe boxes. Purchase several sets, and you can stack your shoes all the way up to the ceiling, if you desire. Shoe heaven!

For a cubbie-style option, try the Melamine Shoe Cube. This handy cube features large cubbies that hold up to 25 pairs of shoes. Laminated particle board is durable enough to keep outside the closet. You can even place this unit outside to tackle all those random sandals lying around the pool area.


Shoe racks are great for displaying all your shoes in one, convenient location. Some people avoid boxes at all costs, and forget about their shoes if they’re not out in plain view. If that sounds like you, then you’re a great candidate for a shoe rack.

The Multi-Pair Shoe Rack/Tower is the granddaddy of all shoe racks. Models available to hold 20, 30 and 50 pairs of shoes. Sturdy yet compact design fits easily inside any closet or wardrobe.

Limited space? Consider an over-the-door solution. The 15 Pr Overdoor Shoe rack is the perfect option for shoe lovers without a lot of extra storage space. This rack conveniently hangs over any standard door and holds up to 15 pairs of shoes, keeping them safely stored and neatly out of the way. This unit also gets points for style, thanks to its attractive wood frame, natural and metal chrome finish.

Shoe trees are the revolving cousins of shoe racks. Rather than hanging down, shoe trees offer storage on metal-framed tiers. Trees typically cover less floor space than standard racks, making them a great option for those with space-saving needs. The Hammered Silver and Faux Leather 3-Tier Shoe Tree is made of heavy-duty, commercial-grade steel, so you know it’s going to last for many years. Conveniently holds up to 18 pairs of shoes, and also features a handy, faux leather accessory tray at the top. Great for shoe clips, bows and touch-up polishes. Unlike many shoe trees, the bottom of this model is weighted, making it sturdy and reliable. Racks rotate for ease of selection.

Under Bed

Under bed shoe organizers have exploded on the market. These are great for keeping shoes safely tucked away and out of sight. If your closet is too small for shoe storage, try storing them under the bed.

A top choice among apartment dwellers, the Bed Shoes Away Organizer takes it a step further by only using space on the sides of the bed. Just tuck it between the mattress and box spring, and shoes are hidden under the dust ruffle or bedspread. Easily accommodates 8 pairs of shoes. Also great for accessories, toys and more. Adjusts to fit bed sizes from twin to king.

The Clear Underbed 16 Pair Shoe Chest stores and protects 16 pairs of shoes. Compartmentalized bag is sealed with a zipper to keep shoes safe from dust, dirt and moisture. Transparent vinyl allows you to view all your shoes at a glance, saving you time and frustration. This lightweight unit glides easily, making it easy for even those with bad backs to access their shoes quickly and painlessly.

With all these fantastic choices, there’s no reason why even those in the smallest spaces can’t house an abundant shoe collection. These organizers are so spacious, you’ll likely even find room in them for new, stylish additions.
