Recently I went on a purging and tidying rampage and at the core of my frustration was our lack of shoe storage. For some reason, I find shoes incredibly annoying to store. I could count of the reasons why for hours, but I’ll spare you. Mostly, I just hate how much space they take up and how shoes can get smashed and misshapen if they are stored incorrectly. After my rampage, I fell down the rabbit hole of shoe storage and found some really good options that are worth sharing with you guys. And, of course, I only want stylish shoe storage, so the aesthetic of each has been taken into consideration! Let’s get started, shall we?
stackable bamboo shoe rack from Urban Outfitters.
I think by now we’re all familiar with the janky, college-area metal stands that held approximately 3.5 pairs of shoes. Aka I never want to have one of those in my home ever again! Thankfully there are so many new options out there for stylish shoe storage.
Here are some faves:
- pipeline coat rack
- Kellan shoe rack
- promenade wood storage bench
- New York closet shoe ladder
- aspect walnut open bench with cushion
- drop-front shoe box
- trones shoe cabinet — we have this in our mudroom and I love it!
- blacksmith shoe rack
- yukon entryway bench with shelf
Urban Outfitters has lots of great storage pieces in general. So, of course their shoe racks are included in this round up! This sling shoe rack is slim enough to fit behind a door or in a small closet, which I love. And how genius is this under-the-bed rolling storage box?? I could definitely use a few of these to store our shoes.
If you have any more storage ideas for shoes, I’d love to hear them!
