Shoe Storage Ideas

This is our shoes storage racks.  I purchased the racks from Howards Storage World many years ago.  Have seen similar in the discount shops too.  I use the Ikea baskets to hold thongs and other slip on shoes.  Each family member has their own shelf.  Boots sit on top so they don’t get squished.  The kids school shoes and sneakers sit alongside their basket.

I don’t store shoes inside (apart from our good shoes worn only to weddings and other formal occasions in the shoe boxes.  I  keep them inside away from dust as they aren’t worn regularly).

The shoe rack is kept in the garage at the door that opens into the house.  Easy to slip on and off when leaving or arriving home.

Love the ideas for organising your family’s shoes. I know I need to do something about organising my kids’ shoes especially.

They end up with so many, keeping them organised makes them easy to find.

I love those – I have the majority of mine stored in clear pink lily boot and shoeboxes. I went to howards storage this morning and was in envy of what they had. I went looking for a cultery tray and still have to make up my mind which way to go down.

Do you worry about spiders etc? I find we manage to get lots of spiders in our garage and am afraid of storing things in there for that reason.

Hi. Was wondering if there are any ideas regarding my shoe storage issues? I have many shoes… Many, many, many. I store them under the bed, but I always lose the pairs, it takes half an hour scrabbling on the floor to find anything, it drives me crazy? Bed is a king size ensemble, about 15 cm off the floor. My boots end up being squashed. I love your ideas, but I have no walk in garage, shed is across the carport. No room in the wadrobe, no walk-in in the main. We live in Darwin, so thongs go on the front porch, but it just isn’t working. Any suggestions would be a great help? Thanx. Cheers, Taryn.

Take all your shoes out, photograph each pair and print the photo. Have under bed containers. Sort your shoes by colour, occastion or shoe type into the containers and place the photo’s of the shoes in each container on the lid. This will save you having to search through each container. Hope this helps

Hi, I have like 30-40 pairs of shoes and currently I am living with my husbands parents and I don’t have any space on walls or doors or floor. The only space I really have available to me is under my king size bed. Do you know of there I can find some durable long lasting plastic boxes or durable shoe organisers? I have check SO many websites and I hate those flimsy shoe organisers for 12 pairs, they don’t work. Right now they are piled up on my study floor 🙁

Oh I dream of having a garage like yours to store shoes/school bags etc. Sadly living on a farm means spiders, earwigs and other creepy crawlies, which love hiding in shoes left outside oh and not to mention the dust! After we move and settle in I’ll be looking to find an inside alternative to keep everybody’s bits and bobs organised for school and work.

Tam I have a post coming up on organising school bags inside, we revamped our current area, it maybe the inspiration you need!

I have a fantastic shoe cabinet which is like a narrow sideboard – it has two fold open drawers which hold’s about 15 pairs of our shoes (hubbies and mine) I bought it at Ikea. Hemnes I think is the name of it.  It also have a little drawer at the top which I keep all my hair accessories in – but could also be a jewelery draw.I just love it – so clean and neat and a nice piece of furniture too.

Hey there,

I’ve searched for this on Howards storage site but can’t find a similar one.
What is it called?

Reply
Katrina May 16, 2013 - 9:12 PM

Ali, I purchased it years ago, they may not stock it anymore, however they also don’t have everything on their website, you may find it in your local store though.

What is to the left of your shoes shelves – love the bag hanging hooks – love to see the whole area from furher back 🙂

It’s the rubbermaid shelving system. I’ll see if I can find a link, possibly if you search garage organisation you will see a better shot.

I like to keep my shoes stored in a clear container with a good fitting lid, then labeled on the outside of what shoes they are. I’ve always had a little fear of a spider hiding in the toe of my shoe in a dark closet.
