When you've got a gorgeous shoe collection, displaying your shoes is part of the fun. If you're a shoe lover, you'll definitely want to see these beautiful and functional storage ideas.
Seriously, isn't this one of the coolest pieces of furniture you've ever seen? And, really, it could be used as a conversation-starting coffee table too!
The only issue is that it is unclear on how to buy one of these giant wooden shoe boxes. We cannot completely vouch for the process, as we have not personally purchased anything from the creator. However, contact can be made to the Wood Sheik here.
Oh, and if anyone purchases one of these masterpieces, please come back and share your experience. :)
Simply install small 2.5 inch shelves on the wall and make your shoes look like they are magically standing vertically. Only heeled shoes can be stored this way.
It's hard to find a thin shelve that is only 2.5 inches out, so this will likely be a diy project. In the example picture, white crown molding was used for the shelving.

A lot of people won't have a grand closet with lots of shelving like Khloe Kardashian (it's her closet in that pic), but if you're blessed with a large closet with room to spare, a built-in shoe shelf is a glamorous way to display shoes.
Tip: Alternate each shoe with one shoe facing towards the front, and the other matching shoe facing towards the back. Not only will this show the shoe style, it also takes up less space, making more room for other shoes!
This last one isn't gorgeous like the other storage ideas, but, for many of us, particularly those who live in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco where real estate is limited, a simple door shoe rack is the way to go. Of all of the ways to store shoes, it saves the most space.
I have two of these shoe racks (one on each side) of my closet door. Not only do they make all my shoes visible and organized, they also keep the shoes from getting damaged during storage.
Here's one final tip. No matter how you store your shoes, remember these 3 rules: no continued exposure to direct sunlight, no wetness, and provide adequate room for each shoe so they're not touching or squishing each other.
