Shoe wall boxes

Shoe wall boxes DEFAULT

Whether you’re a sneakerhead or a Manolo devotee, you’ve likely grappled with the question of how to store all of your precious shoes in a cramped city apartment. Under the bed just won’t do, and a jumble of mismatched pairs cluttering your entryway isn’t a great look either. To find the best storage solutions that also keep your shoes in tip-top shape, we spoke to 16 professional organizers all throughout New York City (and one in Raleigh) for their recommendations. Below, 21 of their favorite boxes, shelves, racks, and more.

Best overall shoe organizers

These clear-plastic shoeboxes from the Container Store were the most recommended storage solution by our organization experts. “We never encourage clients to keep shoes in their original shoeboxes,” says Jamie Hord of Horderly Professional Organizing. “Clear, uniform shoeboxes let you see exactly what you have, maximize your space, and give you an aesthetic look in your closet that makes it impossible to mess up.” They work for both shoes that are worn regularly and ones that need to be stored for the off-season. They’re also stackable. “You want to mimic creating shelves in some way,” says Amanda Wiss, founder of Urban Clarity, while Apartment Jeanie’s Jeanie Engelbach recommends utilizing the height of the closet to store shoes. They’re also easy to label, and Jeni Aron of Clutter Cowgirl says, “If you’re done with a pair of shoes, you can use the box for something else not even shoe related (bathroom, kitchen, pet stuff, meds, etc.).” They come in standard, large, and tall sizes (for heels), but can get pricey if you need a bunch of them.

Here’s something similar from the Container Store that three of our experts also highly recommend. “I love these boxes because you don’t have to unstack them to get the pair of shoes you want,” says Emily Matles of Emagine Simplicity. Hord agrees: “These drop-front shoeboxes create an exact home for every shoe with super-easy access and give your closet a beautiful, yet functional, aesthetic.” Jessica Decker of Become Organized also likes these because “the closed drawer keeps shoes protected from dust, while small ventilation holes allow shoes to breathe.”

Best over-the-door shoe organizers

For an organization system that’s more out of the way, four of our experts recommend sticking them on the back of a door. “In my opinion, the best place for shoes (in terms of space-saving) is on the back of a door or inside a closet door,” says Tori Cohen of Tori the Organizer. Decker agrees: “An over-the-door shoe organizer is the easiest, simplest way to store shoes. It goes up in a second and can hold 24 pairs of shoes in an otherwise unused space.” Nicole Abramovici of Genius Organizing notes that the average shoe bag accommodates only 12 pairs, but “this gem has 24 pockets [and fits] one pair per pocket, meaning 24 pairs are up in there. Life-changing!” Natalie Schier, president and founder of Cut the Clutter, also recommends this particular style for heels or chunkier shoes. To make this organizer look a little more appealing, professional organizer Ann Sullivan suggests using decorative nails or small hooks to mount it on doors instead of using the over-the-door hooks that comes with it.

This one is even simpler (and less expensive), and it’s Schier’s pick for flats, sandals, and sneakers. “The clear pockets mean you can quickly spot the shoes you want to wear,” she says. “It’s also super easy to mount this rack directly to the inside of a door or even a wall. I use it with my clients not just for shoes, but for winter accessories, too.”

Another over-the-door option is this nifty organizer that Lauren Levy wrote about, and is “the rare hanging option that doesn’t involve any pockets.” While it takes more assembly than one with pouches, “the benefit is that it comfortably carries both heels and flats,” she says, “and it won’t suffocate shoe leather, a material that requires sufficient breathing room to stay fresh.”

Best shoe-cubby systems

For those who prefer to keep shoes contained in their own compartments, try this simple cubby system recommended by Lisa Tselebidis, a KonMari-certified consultant. “This minimalist cubby organizer can be placed anywhere in the home, whether in the entryway or in a closet,” she says. “You can put two or more of these together and create as large of a shoe organizer as you need.” Sullivan also recommends a similar system and notes that it is “great for a mudroom,” and “if you don’t want to do built-ins or have the budget for them.” Amelia Meena of Appleshine is also a fan: “I love using them for flats or sneakers — sometimes heels can be a bit tricky if they’re too high.”

To display all of your shoes in a streamlined manner, Kadi Dulude of Wizard of Homes recommends this tall cubby cabinet that can hold 36 pairs of footwear.

Best shoe racks

Three of our experts — Anna Bauer of Sorted by Anna, Schier, and Kelley Jonkoff, a certified KonMari consultant based in Raleigh — swear by this expanding rack with grippy, offset bars. “The foam coating is KEY,” says Schier. “It keeps the shoes from slipping off the rack.” Jonkoff calls out its adjustable width, which she says is nice if you move often. “Moving is expensive enough without having to replace your things to fit your new smaller or larger space,” she says. “I’ve had a similar design to this for over ten years and it’s still going strong.”

Straightforward shoe racks are also great for decluttering spaces like entryways. “They may be basic, but they get the job done,” says Matles. “They’re ideal for adding more shoe storage in your closet or by your entryway.” This one from Homebi is stackable.

Hord’s go-to pick for shoe organization is this stackable mesh rack. “We love this shoe-rack solution for many reasons. One big reason is that it has straight, solid shelves,” she says. Another is the fact that it stacks, which means maximizing vertical space. You can even fit an extra row of shoes on the floor below the bottom shelf.

Jonkoff also likes this one made out of bamboo because it not only provides storage, but also “creates a visually pleasing, calm environment.” She’s partial to storing shoes on a slight slant with the toes facing out, and this three-tier shelf “helps make the shoe more visible, making footwear choices easier,” she adds. “To go full-Kondo for a minute, having the toes facing forward creates a sense of facing the day and the future.”

Barbara Reich of Resourceful Consultants likes the West Elm shoe rack — which is definitely a splurge — for “its simple, clean aesthetic,” she says. “It is a neutral addition to any entryway.” The industrial-looking rack is made from mango wood and steel.

According to Jonkoff, “This rack is ideal for someone with a large shoe collection and a small, multiuse space.” Made from chrome-plated steel with ten tiers and nonslip bars, it can hold up to 50 pairs of women’s shoes of various styles, and because it’s tall, it doesn’t create too large a footprint. It also has wheels, which Jonkoff says is “perfect for a closetless room” because it “can be rolled out of the way when company is over or anytime their usual space is needed for something else.” And the fact that it looks a bit industrial can be plus: “When I’m helping a client organize their clothing, I tell them we’re going to make their closet feel like a boutique.”

Best shoe stackers

To squeeze even more space out of your shelves, Decker suggests trying these Shoe Slotz that “increase storage space and prevent shoes from getting damaged sitting on top of each other.” They’re similar to ones that Strategist contributor Alison Freer recommends, which she says are “like individual two-story condos for every single pair of footwear.” She continues: “As everyone on the island of Manhattan knows, the Golden Rule of creating more space is always to go up rather than out, and because the Shoe Slotz allow me to stack two shoes on top of each other within the same footprint, I essentially halve the amount of space each pair takes up on my shoe racks.” Schier also uses something similar, saying, “They are a game changer for sandals and flats. They literally double the amount of shoes you can store on a flat rack or on the floor.” Schier adds rubber bumpers to the bottoms to keep them from sliding around on the shelf.

Best hanging shoe organizers

Vertical fabric cubbies are another great hanging option for utilizing limited space in a closet. Just attach it to the rod off to the side and you instantly have designated room for your shoes. Dulude recommends this canvas organizer that holds a surprising number of shoes.

Best closed-storage shoe organizers

For those who want their shoes completely out of sight, our experts Bauer and Matles both recommend Ikea’s Trones system, which “is slim and compact and can be used in various areas of your home,” according to Bauer. Matles likes that it “fits perfectly on a wall in a narrow space and keep shoes off the floor.”

Here’s another Ikea solution that keeps shoes concealed behind a sliding door. “This Ikea shoe cabinet is great for a small space and perfect to keep in a hallway by the front door,” says Aron. “If you have the height, you can stack one cabinet on top of the other and store less frequently used shoes and other accessories up top.”

Best seating with shoe storage

“If closet space is an issue and you don’t quite have the space for a shoe cubby, then an ottoman would be a great solution,” says Dulude. This one is made of microfiber and includes interior side pockets for even more storage.

Juli Oliver of OrganizeNY recommends this bench with shelves that makes it easy to put on your shoes — and put them away when you’re done. Perfect for a mudroom or an entryway.

Best storage for boots

Storing boots—especially tall boots—is trickier because of their shafts and how much real estate they take up. And because they’re often made of “supple leather or suedes,” as Engelbach noted, they need a little extra TLC to keep fresh. If you have extra space in your closet, Bauer and Engelbach suggest hanging them with these handy clip hangers.

Schier recommends Voot Boot Shapers to help keep “tall boots from flopping over and ending up in a jumbled mess,” which ultimately makes them easier to store. They’re essentially flexible plastic sheets that you roll up and insert into the shaft. They store flat when you’re not using them.

When DESUS & MERO on Showtime transitioned to filming remotely last year, co-hosts Desus Nice and The Kid Mero were forced to trade in their elaborate sets for corners of their own homes. Mero retreated to his basement (aka away from his four kids), and Desus situated himself in front of an array of sneakers, each color-coded in clear boxes.

Impressed by his commitment to rotating the pairs in view, fans wondered Nice's elaborate set up was actually the product of a green screen. "If this was a green screen, could I do that, baby?" he asks as he licks the sole of an all-blue pair of Fila's Jerry Stackhouse Spaghetti sneakers. For further proof, he breaks his silence on where he bought the organizers from. "These sneaker boxes are each custom made in Italy. They run about $ each; I can't tell you the name of the person [who makes them]. There's a six-month waitlist I'm kidding. These are regular open flat-front shoe boxes from The Container Store."

He uses a wall of these as a way to store his collection of sneakers. (He has around pairs.) Switching them out each week takes "either two days or two hours," he explains in the same segment. Having a surefire way for organizing them abets his sneaker obsession, which he says only developed recently. "People who don't get it, I completely understand. I used to be like you," he says. Now he's cemented himself as a collector. If you feel similarly or are simply desiring a product that'll declutter what you do have, here are several products that'll help you declutter your closet and eliminate the stress of mess.

The Container Store Drop-Front Shoe Boxes


Large Drop-Front Shoe Box




This Desus-approved design lets you show off your shoes in a space-saving way. They're clear and feature a door that opens down, making removing a pair easy and possible without rearranging the entire ensemble. Dubbed the large version, they can fit up to a men's size 13 (and even some taller boots). Get one for just under $11 or six for under $

Like-It Modular Stacking Baskets


Modular Stacking Basket with Lid




Japanese brand Like-It makes these Modular Stacking Baskets in several sizes (small, medium and large). They're slotted so you can see through without stressing out over your folding ability and breathable as to prevent the mustiness that comes with closed-lid systems. They all come with lids, too, so you can them on top of each other — and save space. Whether you use a small one for socks and underwear or a bigger one for sweaters and jeans, you'll be glad you got them — and you can always get more.

West Elm Wall-Mounted Hamper


Bamboo Wall-Mounted Laundry Hamper




Surely clean clothes are the priority, but a compact hamper can free up critical space. West Elm's wall-mountable bamboo iteration can hold up to 11 lbs of laundry, features a removable interior lining and comes with all of the equipment for installing it. It may not be the biggest option on the market, but it's certainly the most efficient.

Yamazaki Chain Link Bag Hanger


Chain Link Bag Hanger



Although Yamazaki's Chain Link Hanger is designed for bags, you're able to store hats, belts, scarves and other accessories, too. This iteration affords you the option of hanging the rack on the back of the door, mounting it to a wall or draping it off a hanger. The included tools and attachments make switching between styles easy, and every rung is removable, rendering the total piece a different length depending on your needs.

ORG Friction Tiered Hanger


Friction 5-Tier Tree



ORG's rubber-wrapped hangers shrink the total footprint of button-downs and t-shirts. Five of them fit on each of these, strung vertically in front of one another. Plus, they're all attached to a sturdy metal spine that greatly reduces the likelihood that the weight of five items will break the hook or the rod it's hung on.

Like-It Space-Saving Shoe Holders


Space-Saving Shoe Holders




Do you have fewer shoes than Desus? Perhaps a certain spot you've already dedicated to the shoes you do own? Like-It's super-functional shoe holders store single pairs in a stacked formation — one slides into the bottom spot while another is angled on top. Made in Japan from hard plastic, they're available as a set of six or 12, and each has a clear stopper on top to prevent the shoe from slipping off.

Yamazaki Jewelry and Accessories Display Stand


Jewelry and Accessory Display Stand



Chances are you probably already have a place to store watches, while the rest of your accessories are likely strewn inside a drawer or in a bowl moonlighting as a catchall. Yamazaki's handy 11" accessory stand leaves room rings and earrings on individual hooks and bracelets and necklaces on a freestanding wooden rung. There's space on the bottom surface, too, for bulkier items like glasses and other EDC essentials.

How To: Put Your Shoe Boxes On Your Wall!

Likewise, do you keep your shoe boxes?

Shoe boxes can protect your shoes and keep them in proper conditions to avoid any kind of residue or build up, and this can drastically improve the overall lifespan of your shoe. However, there is no benefit to storing your shoes at all if you are going to put them away without cleaning them.

Subsequently, question is, how do you store shoes in a shoe box? Rather than wrapping in plastics, wrap the shoes in acid-free tissues. Don't put shoes in their shoe boxes or storage containers when damp. Wet shoes easily get moldy in storage; which gives the shoe a very bad smell. Place the shoes in a dry and ventilated area to let them dry out completely before you storage.

Subsequently, question is, how do you stack a shoe box?

Gather all of your shoe boxes and make space in your closet. Use the lid of your shoebox as the base and turn the box on its side and place on top of the lid. Stack multiple boxes on top of one another to provide maximum space. This display works best when it can be backed up against a wall for support.

How should I store my shoes in my closet?

  1. Keep your shoes off the floor.
  2. Avoid storing shoes in wire racks.
  3. Sort shoes into categories.
  4. Assess whether you need a separate shoe storage solution or not.
  5. Use clear shoe boxes with lids.
  6. Get some shoe bins.
  7. Store fancy heels at the top of your closet.
  8. Store flats, sandals, and slip-ons in over-the-door organizers.

How to Hang Up Shoe Boxes on the Wall

Shoe boxes are the type of item that you probably hang on to, simply because they seem so useful, just waiting to be repurposed into something else. Their size makes them suitable for all types of wall art projects, and they are lightweight and compact. Depending on the weight of the objects you plan to display in or on the boxes, use either nails or removable adhesives to secure them to the wall. To display heavy objects, use a shoe box with thick sides.

Dress It Up

A shoe box wrapped in decorative fabric or paper becomes a patterned piece of shoe box wall art, especially effective in groupings of boxes using different fabrics. The fabric or paper adheres to the box with a glue stick or decoupage medium, covering all sides and inner walls of the box except the inside bottom. Two nails secure the box bottom to the wall, creating a durable shelf or shadowbox for lightweight materials. Cover the bottom inner panel with a piece of fabric or paper to disguise the nail heads.

Painted Works of Art

A series of shoe boxes, even if they're not the same size, creates a colorful wall display when each box is painted a different color. Acrylic paints or spray paints give the boxes a bold makeover in shades of bright orange, apple green or indigo. Paint each box one solid color, or paint the inside and outside different colors.

Removable double-sided poster adhesive allows you to hang shoe boxes on wall without any damage to the wall. A grouping that looks somewhat random with a few lids mixed in adds colorful three-dimensional art to the wall.

Boxes Hung on Brick

An interior brick wall doesn't have to be left out of the decor options simply because of the difficulties of hanging on brick. Specialty brick clips clamp over a brick vertically, each with a small hook for hanging items such as shoe boxes. One or two brick clips serve as support for each shoe box, depending on whether you'll be placing anything inside the box that may weigh it down.

A small hole poked in the box bottom near the side that will be the top on the wall holds the box to the clip, or poke two holes in the box bottom near what will be the top, tie a loop of fishing line through it and hang the line in the brick clip.

Strings of Things

Create a wall hanging made of shoeboxes by stringing boxes together beneath one another, with the widest portion of each box hanging horizontally. Decorative ribbon strings the boxes together through holes in each box, knots securing the ribbons inside each one. Once you've made an entire strand, hang the top box, also from ribbon, on a nail or from a wall-mounted coat rack or knob.

String several of these box strands up next to one another for an unusual visual display, each box decorated as you'd like. Display small objects in each box, such as action figures, toy cars or spray-painted twigs.
