How Do You Organize Your Shoes?

I've always been a keep my shoes in the original box kind of girl. But I've got new storage now. Keep reading for ideas on how to organize your shoes.

I’ve always been a keep my shoes in the original box kind of girl. Recently I noticed that I neglect to wear a lot of my shoes because I forget that I have them. Out of sight, out of mind. I knew it was bad when one of my besties suggested that I wear a certain pair of shoes that I own with a new outfit and I had totally forgot about that pair. I had to take action. I’ve always wanted a huge closet with long shelves across the walls for shoes, like the celebrities. Unfortunately I do not have the space in my closet or anywhere else in my apartment for that matter for this. In comes the shoe racks…

"shoe racks"

I took all of my shoes out of the boxes and lined them up in a row. I realized that I had a ton of shoes that I no longer wore, outgrew my style or that  I just simply didn’t like anymore. I then went to Target and picked up two of these expandable and stackable shoe racks. Expanded, the two racks together hold about 42 pairs of shoes. For reference, I wear a size 7.5/8 and my shoes fit fine on the racks.

After taking all of the unwanted pairs out to giveaway, these are what I was left with. There are a few pairs here that will soon be replaced. This is a big step up from this.

My original shoe boxes. I’ve been too chicken to get rid of them completely yet lol. My tall boots are too tall for the rack so they reside in their original boxes on top of my closet with some Uggs and an old pair of kicks.

A closer look at some of my shoes. My flat sandals fit nicely under the bottom rack and a few pair of sneakers (that I barely ever wear) are piled in a corner…

  1. Tell me why I JUST got finished viewing this exact item on an organization website. LOL OMG! I love organization & this looks terrific. BTW, I’m going to need those leopard pumps. LOL
    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Lol I figured a lot of ppl had my same problem with the show organization.

      The leopard ones are one of my faves by Dolce Vita. About to get some new lifts and half soles put on my babies to protect them. They are so sexy with a little toe cleavage, and super comfy! 🙂

  2. er uh, I didn’t answer how I store my shoes. I have a hanging shoe bag that got damaged b/c of the wt. of the shoes. Some are in the box, some are on the floor. some under the bed. Really need to get organized!

  3. I have a similar shoe rack in black! I love it!! Also I have a problem with keeping the nice and sturdy boxes like Aldo and a few others!

    1. Yeah, Bebe has some rally sturdy boxes as well. I don’t have any from Aldo though, they hurt my feet since I am a true half size most of the time and their shoes are whole sizes :/

  4. Awesome! Thanks for posting this! I just moved and have to do something with my shoes and I think I’ll go get one of those expandable racks.

  6. Your before picture looks like a shoe shop LOL. And now you get to look at your gorgeous shoes – it was a shame to hide them away and forget about them! I love expandable and stackable shoe racks. What else could anyone need! That’s what I’ve got, although I do have a hanging organizer tucked away in the corner for flip flops etc.
