Not much design intelligence went into shoe storage for years, but times have changed. Here are four solutions that get the job done in style, allowing you to fit these pesky things into a smaller, organized space. This bench up top by WE is a lovely dual duty design for the front hall.
8 Pair Shoe Organizer - $39.99
Sturdy, clean and stackable, this particle board and laminate construction shoe organizer is about as efficient and attractive as you can get.
TRONES Shoe Storage - $39 for 3
TRONES shoe storage cabinets are an awesome new space saving design and can be used anywhere in the house — including grouped together in the entry, as in this setup seen on Dekorum.
Sko Shoe Rack - $265
So pretty, whatever the price... :)
