Ideas to Improve Shoe Closet Organization?

Good Questions

Q: We recently moved in to a house which has some strange storage spaces. One is this "shoe closet". It measures 92" tall, 21 1/2" wide (narrowed to 18" at the front from the door trim) and 24" deep. There are shelves every 12-14", but the top shelf is actually 26" below the ceiling, though the opening is shorter due to the top of the door.

We'd like to keep this closet mainly for shoes, but the depth makes things difficult to organize- we end up throwing shoes on top of each other and only the ones at the front are easily accessible. Any suggestions of products that we could use (even with tweaking) to organize this closet? We are handy and willing to take out and reconfigure the shelves if that is what it takes.
