We've talked about racking for shoes like this in the past, though if you're space is too small for tools, this can seem like more of a challenge than not. This version simply requires a shipping pallet and a closet to place it in. To keep things secure, we might suggest fixing it to a stud (or two) with a thin piece of leather, creating a tether to hold everything in place, even when filled to the brim with shoes.
This could be a great way to keep your shoes in an entryway, hall closet, or if your space allows it — outside your front door to keep the dirt at bay.
What do you think? Great idea or better luck next time?
