Do you often find yourself running behind because you can’t find that matching pump? If your closet seems to require a headlamp and spelunking gear every time you search for just the right pair of shoes, it might be time for some major renovation. Fortunately, getting your shoe collection in line is a lot easier than exploring an uncharted cave.
Since they come in so many styles and have a knack for accumulating, shoes can be tough to get a handle on, organizationally speaking. However, with the right tools, even the most jam-packed of closets can be whipped into shape in no time at all. Consider some of these super handy shoe and boot organizers as you start to tackle your own jumble of flip flops, flats and other assorted footwear.
Silver Satin Floor to Ceiling Shoe Tree
One great option for fitting more shoes into the space you’ve already got is going vertical with the Silver Satin Floor to Ceiling Shoe Tree. Measuring only 12 inches wide, the shoe tree telescopes up to 96 inches high to fit securely in most closets and offers enough spots for up to 36 pairs of shoes.
For easy access, the shoe racks rotate and you can adjust the space in between them to accommodate shoes and boots of any size. An added accessory basket also fits at the top of the unit, providing a great spot for extras like laces, belts and more. Although it works great in a closet, the unit’s sleek design and silver satin finish make it attractive enough to keep right out in the open.
Over Door Twelve Pair Shoe Rack
Another great option for shoe aficionados with limited space is the Over Door Twelve Pair Shoe Rack. Taking up only about an extra 6 inches of width on the back of any closet door, this rack takes advantage of useful space that might otherwise go to waste. With enough spots for twelve pairs of shoes, this rack secures them with the sole to the back of the door so they won’t fall off even if the door is opened quickly or slammed.
Hanging Shoe Organizer
Another excellent way to capitalize on your closet’s extra vertical space, the Hanging Shoe Organizer hooks onto any ordinary closet rod to support a fabric tower with spaces for your favorite pairs. This handy organizer is supported by a sturdy steel bar at the top and has enough spots to keep ten pairs of shoes in order in less than five inches of horizontal space.
8 Shelf Shoe Bag with Side Pockets
Featuring the same great design concept as the Hanging Shoe Organizer, the 8 Shelf Shoe Bag offers a bit more room for keeping larger shoes and boots off the ground and organized. Each of the unit’s eight shelves offer twelve inches of width. The unit hangs from any closet rod and offers an additional four mesh storage pockets on one side-perfect for flip flops and accessories, but big enough to handle sneakers or other larger items.
Tilt Out Shoe Organizer
For shoe lovers who prefer to keep their favorite pairs in more upscale digs, the Tilt Out Shoe Organizer offers an attractive alternative to more bare-bones models. These practical units are easy on the eyes and feature black vinyl-covered steel construction and keep your shoes behind discreet tilt out doors. The Tilt Out organizer is available in two and three door models, able to accommodate six and nine pairs respectively.
Clear Under Bed Shoe Chest
When your closet simply can’t fit another pair of pumps or sandals, another great place to expand your collecting capacity is under the bed. The Clear Under Bed Shoe Chest measures only 6 inches high-the perfect size to fit under any bed frame-and offers plenty of room to 16 pairs of shoe safe from dust and close at hand. The unit offers zipper closure, a rope handle to make pulling it out a simple prospect, and is constructed of see through vinyl, so you can find what you need with a quick glance.
Mesh Expandable Shoe Rack
Finally, there’s nothing like adaptability for making storage and organization quick and simple. The Mesh Expandable Shoe Rack offers two sturdy metal shelves and expands anywhere from 22 inches to 3 ½ feet to fit perfectly in any closet.
