    Promising review: "I live in a tiny 500-sq.-ft. condo and don't have much space by the foyer, so I'd always have shoes by the entryway. My wood floors are also uneven/not leveled so when I put a storage cabinet by the entryway it would always rock back and forth. Since I can mount the shoe cabinet to the wall, it makes my entryway feel so much more open and put together. The cabinet is made of metal and has a magnetic clip to open/close the doors. I can put about two shoes per bin, but there's a small space left (so maybe kids' shoes can fit there). I love this storage bin and highly recommend it for anyone without the space!" —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $86.31+ (also available with four tiers).

    2. rustic shoe bench to finally make your foyer feel more like a foyer, and not a shoe graveyard, where cleanliness and order go to die. 

    Promising review: "This is such an incredible little piece of furniture. It is so easy to assemble, extremely sturdy, and looks absolutely gorgeous. I had purchased it to put at the foot of my bed to place pillows and blankets on. I wanted something that was rustic and small. This piece of furniture is absolutely outstanding and it’s a beauty. After placing the first one at the foot of my bed, I ordered a second one to function as a shoe rack in the main hallway. I love that it is slick, that it looks good, and that it is truly a rustic piece of furniture. Plus, Prime delivery gets here in no time at all." —Roy Ham Roy

    Get it from Amazon for $65.99 (available in two sizes and two colors).

    3. A storage bench with a shoe rack and lift-top to store extra goodies (and the occasional furry friend), so you don't have to deal with your house becoming a littering ground for scarves and gloves, too.

    Promising review: "We needed a bench with storage for our loft-like apartment. This bench fit the bill. As others have stated, the instructions were mostly comprised of pictures but we were able to eventually figure it out. I wish the rungs under the bench allowed enough height to store short boots rather just shoes. The storage inside the bench is sufficient to store gloves, ear warmers, and winter hats. Aesthetically, the bench is very appealing and seems to be holding up well." —Jennifer & Sydney Cardy

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99 (available in two colors).

    4. A gorgeous rustic shoe cabinet providing an elevated touch to your foyer. Imagine the delight of all your houseguests when you open the drawer and reveal that it's not in fact an elegant table, but a storage cabinet!

    Promising review: "I love this cabinet and it is exactly what I needed to corral all of the shoes in my 'mud room' and looks so much better than the open rack I had in there previously. It looks like a piece of furniture and compliments my room decor, and you wouldn't even know it was a shoe organizer. Highly recommend this product." —Suzanne

    Get it from Wayfair for $139.99 (available in eight colors).

    5. A 15-pair shoe storage bench long enough to hold several little ones (or adults) as they put on their gear for the day, which is infinitely better than having them wriggling all over the floor.

    Promising review: "I have searched far and wide to find a decent tall shoe storage cabinet, finally found this one, well it is worth every penny! It arrived in perfect condition and was a breeze to put together. All pieces were included and instructions were clear. It is nice and sturdy and looks like it was built into my closet. Each cube is a nice size and even holds booties in one cube if you turn them on their sides laying heel to toe and slide them in. I have a few pairs of sandals and could easily fit two or three pairs in one cube. Very, very pleased with this purchase!" —LEGOC

    Promising review: "This little bench is absolutely perfect for sitting and putting on our shoes before heading out; we have it in the back hall near the door to our garage. I looked at a lot of benches, but most were too deep for the space. I am very happy with its boho looks and comfort." —Emily

    Get it from Wayfair for $219.99.

    12. A sturdy bamboo shoe storage bench cabinet destined to become your favorite piece of furniture in the whole house, since every time you sit on its comfy seat and pull out your sneaks in a snap, you'll thank yourself for buying it.

    Promising review: "I was looking for a smallish bench that could be sat on and be used in a little entryway location. The price was so reasonable that I didn't expect this bench to be the best. WRONG! It is simply lovely and very well made. Don't let the fair price fool you because this is an amazing value on a HIGH quality item! I really appreciate the fact that there are waterproof plastic covers inside of the slots inside the bench. That way muddy boots, wet mittens, dirty dog leashes etc will not damage the beautiful bamboo. If you prefer, the divider is also removable. The stunning, linen cushioned seat is very comfortable also and holds up to 225 pounds I believe. It is a nice place to sit and tie your sneakers on your way out for a run. My cats and dogs also like to sit there. It's just a fabulous piece and I am so glad I got it immediately. If you love it, don't hesitate. It's awesome!" —Customer

    Get it from The Container Store for $149.99.

    13. A shoe cabinet ideal for those who want to splurge on a larger piece of furniture but don't ever want to pass up the opportunity to multitask. Shoe holder or classy entryway decor? Definitely both.

    Promising review: “This bench is a wonderful addition to the house decor and a very practical one as well. It makes the hallway look clean, well organized. We use one of them to store some board games, the other one for shoes that we wear daily. This bench is comfortable to sit on while putting your shoes on. It feels sturdy too. We get a lot of compliments on these benches. We got two of them, to fit our hallway and that space under the windows. Great purchase!” –ASL

    Get it from Amazon for $199.95 (available in three colors).

    Promising review: "I bought it on a whim and now my life has improved 900% because of this shoe bench. I live in a small apartment where space is of the essence and this shoe bench fit exactly where it was supposed to — like it was made specifically for this small bit of my hallway. What were the chances? Shoes are no longer flung about but are organized and the extra space on top of the bench is awesome. It took one person maybe 40 minutes to put together, but someone actually skilled at it would take way less than that. The instructions were clear and I couldn't be more happy." —Allegra

    Get it from Amazon for $45.99 (available in six colors).

It also looks pretty nice as well. After I bought mine, my dad bought one for his house! I would definitely recommend this for anyone needing a shoe rack!" —College Bound

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    17. A Nordic-style shoe cabinet that I can only describe as "regal," as well as large enough to store five rows of shoes, featuring two spacious shutter doors that I imagine are very satisfying to throw open to gaze upon your footwear choices for the day.
