How many pairs of shoes do you own? You don’t really have to answer that, but my daughter has 10 pairs and she’s only 6. Wrangling a family’s footwear is certainly a challenge—the solution I’ve heard time and time again sounds easy enough: find each pair of shoes a home. But finding space for that home can be tricky. Luckily shoe organizers come in all sorts of configurations.
Check out these shoe storage ideas for something that works for you and your space.
With these multi-tiered rack, you can assign one tier to each family member. This unit holds up to 27 pairs and is configurable, so you can store boots or shoes still in the box.

This hangs from a rod in the closet, with compartments for easy sorting (or for tucking away hats, gloves, and scarves). It’s a great option for people who have bigger closets in the entryway.
Under the bed is a great place to store special-occasion shoes, such as your high heels or wing tips. You can also keep out-of-season shoes here too (boots in the summer, sandals in the winter).
