    1. A genius hanging boot organizer that'll get 'em up off the floor, prevent any crumpled boot shafts, and let you see 'em (unlike the original shoe boxes).

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Needed a better way to store my expensive and extensive boot collection and this was perfect! I ordered one and loved it so much that I ordered another one. Perfect way to store them, and easy to assemble and use. The only thing I’d love is to be able to hang more on one system, but not everyone may appreciate that request, your closet would need to accommodate. You’ll need about 12” of width in your closet to use this." —marianne

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99+ (available in sizes that hold three or five pairs).

    2. Stacking shoe organizers to help you nearly double your shoe shelf space without sacrificing your ability to quickly see which pair is which.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These shoe holders are fantastic. I'm using them for heels, casual shoes, and sneakers. For people with smaller feet (I'm a 7) it doesn't 'double' your space, but you can get three pairs where you had two. For people with larger feet, you really will double the space." —silversong203

    Get a six-pack set from Amazon for $17.95.

    3. A cushioned bench with open shelving to keep pairs together and within sight — all the better to practice your best Mr. Rogers impression.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought two of these! This is so perfect for my shoes. I wanted something sturdy, durable, and able to fit a handful of shoes. This does the job! 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 $50.99.

    4. A storage ottoman to perch on and put on that pair of shoes you pulled from said ottoman's shoe compartments.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I can’t believe this was so inexpensive! It perfectly matches my couch and looks more expensive than it was. I like the shoe organizer inside, freed up some closet space, and put my off-season shoes in there, and my Xbox controller and headset and remotes. Also the top is tufted which I love." —Tara

    Get it from Amazon for $68.89+ (available in seven colors).

    5. And a tufted storage bench with plenty of compartments inside for your footwear. (Pssst, I think you just found your new mudroom centerpiece.)

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "This bench was exactly what I was searching for. Totally solved my shoe storage issue. I put it in our front entryway and my husband said it totally made the house seem more welcoming. It’s well made and was easy to screw the legs on. Arrived perfectly once we worked out delivery issues with UPS. Lol." —Susan

    Get it from Amazon for $266.79+ (available in two sizes and six colors).

    6. A coat tree – it'll transform a lil' empty space in your entryway into a full-fledged mudroom area... of course with some shelves for shoe storage!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "It’s a great fit in my small house! It’s lightweight and I was able to put together by myself with the tool that was supplied. Fits lots of shoes and coats. I don’t have it mounted to the wall since we aren’t allowed to put holes in them, and it still holds up great!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99.

    7. An OG over-the-door organizer as a cheap but efficient solution for those last pairs you couldn't possibly squeeze inside your closet.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Having no place to store my shoes was driving me nuts, and I was always tripping over shoes. I wasn’t sure if the pockets in the organizer would be large enough for my Crocs, but they fit perfectly when I put the shoes in heel first. (For reference: my Crocs are women’s size 9). I was able to get two pairs of sneakers in the last two sets of pockets as well. The pockets seem to be well made, and I’m confident that this shoe organizer will last." —A. Roach

    Get it from Amazon for $7.97+ (also available in pink).

    8. A lil' cubby that anyone who lives in a dorm room (or in a rental where you can't mount things on the walls) will appreciate.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I wanted a shoe holder for my coat closet. It's not very large. So, I needed a shoe rack that was more narrow and taller. This one fits perfectly. It also has side pockets where I put gloves and hats. I'm glad I found this one." —Polly Bennett

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99.

    9. A horizontal floating rack – it'll be the perfect solution for satisfying your minimalist leanings without hogging floor space.

    Amazon

    Lots of reviewers recommend anchoring this shelf into wall studs.

    Promising review: "It's exactly as shown and is very high quality. It does not feel cheap or flimsy at all. High gauge steel, high gloss finish. Works for my sneakers and dress shoes. Fits three pairs perfectly fine. I hung it behind my door where a normal shoe rack would restrict the door opening. This is slim enough that there is no restriction at all. If I really needed to open the door 110%, then I can remove the shoes and there's no issue. Installation is a snap for anybody who's ever hung anything on the wall using wall anchors. I'm very glad I decided to buy it." —mr. burnit

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99+ (available in two sizes and four metal finishes).

    10. Sturdy under-bed organizers to keep off-season footwear in fighting condition and out of sight 'til the temp changes again.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this product. Prior to this, I was storing shoes in shoe boxes; I had to open several boxes before I could find the shoes I was looking for, now I can see all of my shoes at once. The one issue I had was that the storage device does not easily slide out from under the bed, so I placed furniture slides under each storage device. It might also be helpful if there was a little more rigidity in the sides, but this is a great improvement, time saver, and organizer." —Joan Pierce

    Get two from Amazon for $24.77+ (available in four colors).

    11. A 30-section hanging closet organizer for placing your precious pairs where you can see 'em better for quick morning dressing decisions.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Changed the look of my closet in less than 15 minutes! Hung it up and started filling the cubbies! It can hold more than one pair of sandals easily. One pair of wedges comfortably. I even put small handbags and clutches at the bottom. Very pleased. Great quality and unfolds and hangs up in seconds. Going to buy the other one for larger purses! 5 stars!" —Chris Ledda

    Get it from Amazon for $18.48 (and check out a similar narrower 10-compartment organizer for $12.99).

    12. A modular cube system in case you can spare the floor space (lucky you!).

    Amazon

    BTW, you can assemble the cubes in the shape you prefer, so you don't have to stick with this configuration ^.

    Promising review: "I was looking for a product to store most of my shoes and be space effective also. This product works perfectly and I just what I was looking for. Assembly was easy and took probably 20–30 minutes. While building it, I was worried that my shoes wouldn't fit, but as you can see I didn't have any problems. I just had to put my taller basketball shoes in sideways! What I also like is that I can rearrange the shape if necessary and can buy the product again and add on to what's already there!" —Matt Jaskiewicz

    Get it from Amazon for $43.99+ (available in three colors).

    13. And a similar modular unit with closable flaps if you don't want to look at every pair of shoes you own at all times. (I personally do, but to each their own!)

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Great product easy to assemble just follow instructions. The directions were super easy — I put it together in about 15 minutes or less. Easy to move and fit on each corner of my sweet home. Give AAAAAAA PLUS." —nsp159

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

    14. A boot storage rack so your fam's wellies can fully dry (and air) out after each use. And it looks nice to boot. (I had to!)

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this boot rack. Between my husband and I, we have two pairs of tall hunter rain boots, two pairs of tall Sorel snow boots, and several shorter pairs of North Face boots. They all fit! It helps keep them dry and organized. Assembly was easy with just screwing each post into the base. Happy with our purchase!" —Carly

    Get it from Amazon for $56.99 (and check out a similar rack for $35.99).

    15. A tall shelf that'll take up a criminally small amount of space in a corner. Yes, you do have room for shoe storage!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I am so glad that I bought this shoe rack. It fits perfectly for our corner entryway to keep shoes. It was very easy to put together. Sturdy and the clean appearance with contemporary white color looks great! Love it!" —Terry T

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99+ (available in two sizes and two colors).

    16. Ventilated shoes boxes – they'll clearly be a good addition to your closet.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are really easy to put together and fit one pair of women's heels in each, or two pairs of flats. My shoes are all size 9, these could easily fit size 10 or 11 without an issue. I love that they are clear so I can see the shoes inside without having to reach the shelf to guess which ones are in which box. I've since my first purchase ordered several more, in packs of 4 boxes (all the more reason to buy more shoes). Any boxes that have yet to be put together and filled stay flat and are easily stuck between the rows, so they don't take up any space. My closet looks much more organized and tidy. The only downside is that they do not fit my husband's shoes, which are mostly size 12. I would like to see an option for men's sizes so I can organize his better dress shoes and keep them nice and safe." —knuckles42188

    Get four from Amazon for $8.04.

    Looking for a sturdier solution? Check out a similar hard plastic container for $15.99.

    17. A stackable horizontal organizer that I own and use in my own closet... and I'm sure you'll love it as much and I do!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This product worked perfectly for organizing my shoes in two different closets. Sturdy enough with two units stacked to hold different types of shoes without tipping over or bowing." —Prime Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98+ (available in three colors and two lengths).

    18. A bamboo shoe rack with a ~tilt~ so you can finally merchandise your fave shoes. Plus it's nice looking enough to leave out for the world to see!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is an attractive, sturdy, and functional shoe rack that works perfectly for the space by the front door. But we just have so many shoes! So I got another one. They have holes and little dowel feet that make them stack perfectly." —Dylan

    Get it from Amazon for $28.55+ (available in two finishes).

    19. A shoe tree for some compact storage to help solve all your space constraints.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "The assembly was quick and simple. I’m still shocked it fit all my shoes! The adjustable sizing made shoe storage perfect and allowed me to separate my shoes into flats/sneakers/heels with ease. Would definitely recommend!" —keirstin

    Get it from Amazon for $24.42+ (available in two sizes and three finishes).

    20. A padded bench with a secret compartment to throw in random stuff. You can never have enough places to throw random junk.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Recently, our old shoe rack has fallen apart and need a replacement FAST. Then I found this very good looking, fashion style shoe bench with storage at a good price in Amazon. The packaging was well packed and arrived on time without any damage. The assembly was pretty easy with the instructions. Last, the shoe bench is actually looking better than the one it shows in the Amazon picture and the quality is very good. Highly Recommended this product!!" —William T

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99 (available in two colors).

    21. A multi-tier rack with some stylish flair because no one said your shoe storage can't be cute!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is very nice. It is easy to assemble and it looks just like the picture. I am impressed. It isn't heavy, but appears to be sturdy.

    It also looks very nice in the closet. Depending on size and bulkiness of shoes, you could easily fit 16 pairs (four per shelf). For larger shoes (three pairs per shelf). I really like mine." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $42.99 (also available in a bronze finish).

    22. A freestanding rack that'll encourage air flow (and hopefully a lot less odor).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This rack holds each shoe separately (good aeration), is only marginally longer, and for good reason, assemblies easily (no pliers or other tools needed to scratch the finish) into a structurally strong unit, which only fails in that it is not white in color!" —Theodore C. Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $20.27.

    23. A big ole shelf with a design *so* cool that you won't even care that it takes up a big expanse of wall!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I ended up ordering a second shelf for my husband's side of the closet. This was super easy to put together (lay it out before you begin to put screws in as you could end up in a pickle if you don't line the shelves up appropriately). These shelves look really nice in our master closet and keep our shoes from cluttering things up. I love having the taller space for the cowboy boots I use year-round. Very simple, well-made, and nice looking. Gets the job done and the price point is great! Highly recommend." —Educ8NC

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99+ (available in two sizes).

    24. A wall-mounted rack for those rooms where you absolutely cannot put one more thing on the floor, including a shoe shelf!

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "This shoe rack is perfect for the space I had. Kept the shoes off the floor of the garage and mounted on the wall behind the door. It was easy to install and looks great in the garage." —Albert Johnson

    Get two from Amazon for $34.99.
