How To Organize Shoes
No matter what size your shoe collection is, getting your shoes and boots organized makes them easy to find and protects them from damage. Fortunately, there are almost as many options to organize your shoes as there are shoe styles.
Step 1: Take Inventory
First go through ALL your shoes. Sort into those you wear regularly and those for special occasions. To save room and make it easier to find the pair you want, you'll also want to sort by seasons. Be sure to donate pairs you don't wear or those that aren't comfortable. Discard any that are worn out or beyond repair. Now count how many pairs of each type you have, this will help you decide what type and how many organizers you'll need.
Step 2: Clean, Polish & Repair
A cobbler can repair or replace worn heels and soles on most shoes and boots at a fraction of the cost of replacing them.
Step 3: Select Your Organizers - On The Closet Floor
If you're storing your shoes in your closet you have several options depending on your space. And for most people, a combination of shoe storage solutions works best.
Tiered shoe racks and shoe cubbies can often be stacked to make use of the vertical space beneath hanging clothes. These open solutions work well for shoes that you often wear.
