I kept putting off buying these shoeboxes because they are definitely a pricier route if you have a lot of shoes. But I decided to go for it and purchase the boxes in chunks — it's hands-down the best purchase I've made all year! Living in a small NYC apartment, I could never find a way to store all of my sneakers in a way that wasn't damaging or wouldn't have them be out of sight (then I would honestly never wear them). After trying tons of different racks over the years, this is the first option that I've ever been 100% satisfied with. It looks great, even in my small bedroom, I can see and access all of my sneakers, and the boxes are extremely sturdy. I am obsessed with my shoe wall.
Promising review: "My boyfriend and I are real shoppers, from clothes to household items and most importantly SNEAKERS! We have run into a problem with shoeboxes breaking from the weight of stacking them and these drop-front shoeboxes...well they are our Best Buy EVER! They stack perfectly, they don't lean, they inner lock with each other so they don't slide off. They are durable, clear fronts make it easy to see our sneakers, and just an amazing product. We have purchased about 100 of these and are ordering more! I am in LOVE with these drop-front shoeboxes and I tell everyone about them." —SneakerheadMinda
