    1. A sturdy, stackable shoe rack that'll make the entryway less of a disaster zone.

    Each three-tier rack can hold up to nine pairs of shoes. I actually own this shoe rack and it's super sturdy — read my review here (#1 on the list).

    Promising review: "This was SUPER easy to put together — it literally took me longer to open the box than it did for me to put the shelving together! I originally bought three and loved the look of them so much that I bought another three! It now holds ALL of our shoes in an organized row in our foyer, and now there's no clutter or mess in any of our closets. It also reminded me of ALL OF THE SHOES I own, and it's helped me to curb my shoe spending since I can now see exactly what I own!" —Joanna Kim

    Get a three-tier rack from Amazon for $29.10 (available in three sizes and three colors).

    2. A hanging shoe shelf to transfer part of your footwear collection from the crowded foyer into the closet.

    It has 30 sections.

    Promising review: "I installed a closet system, which meant I had to replace the shoe cubbies I had been using for 25 years. I had exactly 18" of space to store 30 pairs of shoes. I found this! It's perfect! It holds my shoes more compactly than I did before. It seems sturdy enough to last a long time, and it looks attractive when I open my closet door. I would definitely buy this again." — JCS

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    3. A rolling 10-tier rack with locking wheels for anyone looking for a low-profile way to store up to 50 pairs (!!!) of shoes.

    Reviewers recommend removing one of the shelves to store taller boots.

    Promising review: "I wish I would have purchased this several years ago. I was always trying to find the mates to shoes when they were in the closet. Cannot add up the minutes that I wasted every day trying to find the matching shoes in the closet! Now this rack is visible and so easy to use, I walk in and put up my shoes each evening. It also is angled so the shoes do not slip. I have summer sandals, athletic shoes, and dress shoes, and they all fit without slipping. The shelves are spaced far enough apart that even the athletic shoes fit without having to force them. I like the fact the rack is on rollers as it is near a sliding door that we use only once in a year. The great thing about this rack is that the shoes are exposed to the air, and I can spray them with Lysol if I feel the need. I would definitely buy again." —SunshineSherry

    Get it from Amazon for $68.08 .

    4. A set of plastic storage units you can customize to fit your space. You can also snap several sets together to create a majestic sneaker wall.

    Promising review: "I used to have a two-tier metal rack that was nowhere near enough storage space and there were always shoes all over the floor. I put this together in a rather short while and now my closet is clean! Totally love this because it is so spacious and you can build it in any shape you want." —Mama D

    Get a 16-cube set from Amazon for $45.99 (available in five colors).

    5. A set of clear plastic shoeboxes with ventilation holes and front access that'll put your current shoe-storage system to shame. They're larger than most boxes so you can easily store your taller sneakers upright.

    Read my review of these shoeboxes (#8 on the list).

    Promising review: "I wanted one of these to put each pair of my shoes in and I purchased enough to do that. They are well made and I am pleased with them. The only thing I want to mention is be sure and look at the size of you are going to purchase a lot of them. They do stack well but you have to allow enough space for them. I am satisfied with them and they are nice - a good purchase." — Pamela Young

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $24.94 (also available as a "tall" style).

    6. An over-the-door organizer to store more than just shoes — you can stash anything from cleaning supplies to snacks to winter accessories in the pockets.,

    It has 24 pockets.

    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 $9.87 (available in three colors).

    7. An 18-pocket shoe file for anyone with no room on the floor but have some hanging space to spare. The transparent vinyl makes it easy to see exactly which pair you're grabbing.

    Promising review: "I love it. It takes up little room in the closet. You can see all the shoes on both sides of it. The shoes, including short boots, fit in the pockets without a problem." —Virgo912

    Get it from The Container Store for $12.99.

    8. A pack of shoe holders (that layer one shoe on top of the other) so you can fit in twice as many pairs.

    They fit up to a men's size 14 shoe.

    Promising review: "This works well for me. I've doubled my space, it protects the shoes because of how you place them on the product, and you can easily see your shoes. I'm going to buy some more." —Susan S.

    Get a 10-pack from Amazon for $27.99.

    9. An under-bed shoe organizer that'll keep your off-season and special occasion footwear out of sight but still accessible.

    The organizer featuring a clear vinyl top and convenient side handle

    It has 12 slots for 12 pairs of shoes.

    Promising review: "Perfect storage option for all of our shoes! Our attic storage is not easily accessible and it's a pain to put our winter shoes in storage during the summer and vice versa. This was such a great option to accommodate that! Even my ankle boots fit well and the whole organizer slides easily under the bed and out of sight." —C. Menz

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    10. A rotating shoe shelf perfect for small spaces that can't accommodate rectangular structures.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this! It's easy to get to all of my shoes, however it does take up quiet a bit of room but it's completely worth it. It has a lot of pieces but is pretty easy to assemble and doesn't take very long to put together." — Shayna Pierce

    Get it from Amazon for $105.99.

    11. A minimalist shoe rack with a convenient top handle so you can easily move it around. Plus, it's just a delight to look at.


    Promising review: "I had a tall narrow space near my front door and wanted to store shoes without them being too obvious. This is perfect; the design lets you carry the rack away easily if necessary. About as minimal as you can get and still hold five pairs of shoes nicely, in a small amount of floor space." —Yours Truly

    Get it from Amazon for $45.89+ (available in two colors and sizes).

    12. An upholstered storage ottoman to keep shoes neatly hidden away and also provide an extra seat if needed.

    The tufted ottoman in a green fabric

    It has twelve separate shoe compartments.

    Promising review: "Great ottoman. True to size, color, and to description. Bought originally as a footrest, but definitely sturdy and large enough to double as an extra seat if need be. Shoe storage inside I also thought would be odd, however turns out to be super functional." —Jordan C.

    Get it from Overstock for $92.22 (originally $108.49; available in eight colors).

    13. A functional yet attractive three-tier shoe-rack made for a small landing area or mudroom. The top shelf can be used for taller boots or decor items — whatever suits your fancy.

    The metal rack featuring a rustic oak-finish top

    Promising review: "LOVE this shoe rack!! I was looking for something sturdy to be a catchall in our laundry room where we always enter the house and our shoes tended to pile up. But also didn’t want it to be tacky because visitors also mostly use this door. This was PERFECT. I used two and was able to secure them together. It holds a lot of shoes and looks as nice as a shoe rack could possibly look. The fact that I can put something decorative on the top of the surface is what makes the biggest difference! Would 100% buy this again!" —Mel

    Get it from Target for $34.99.

    14. An overdoor shoe rack so you can see all your options at a glance when you step into your closet.

    Promising review: "I like this shoe rack. It was very easy to assemble and the instructions were easy to comprehend and follow. Took less than 30 minutes overall. I only have a few shoes on there but it doesn’t bend or break under the weight. It’s very durable and saves me a lot of space in my room. It doesn’t slide or move when I open or close my door which is great. You have enough storage capacity to put at least 36 pairs of shoes which is great for people who have a big collection." — Lala Luciano

    Get it from Amazon for $28.78.

    15. An aesthetically pleasing cabinet that'll literally take your shoe storage game to another level.

    Get it from Food52 for $110 (available in two colors) or Amazon for $97.60.

    The four-tiered

    This conveniently stores 12 pairs of shoes at once.

    Promising review: "For the price, the shoe rack is sturdy, stylish and very spacious for small feet! I don’t have a closet space so I’ve been trying to create more with what i have and this fits perfect. Makes it feel more like furniture rather than storage and i love that the wood top makes it feel like an end table perfect for putting a candle and some decorations." —ladonna

    Get it from Target for $35.

    18. A modern cabinet for anyone who prefers enclosed storage and a clean look. Plus, there are six open shelves for keeping your most-worn pairs handy.

    It can fit up to 24 pairs of shoes.

    Promising review: "This holds so many pairs of shoes. It's really amazing, must pairs are hidden. If you have bigger feet bigger then 11 this may not work cause. My wife and daughter get the covered storage, I get the open spots. Now if I could only get them to actually put their shoes away." —Randal

    Holds six pair of boots comfortably, but some reviewers say it can fit more!

    Promising review: "I am so glad I bought this boot rack. It's absolutely perfect! Description says it holds six pairs of boots but I managed to fit eight pairs. There's really no need for the instructions as long as the screws are included and if you use a little common sense it's super easy to figure out and put together. I definitely recommend this item." — Michelle

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99 (available in two colors).

    20. A shoe rack organizer to make the shoe clutter in your closet disappear, literally.

    Promising Review: "This is an amazing shoe organizer, don't hesitate to get it. It took my husband and I no more than 30 minutes to put together from beginning to end. It is super sturdy and very stable. All my shoes, sandals, flip flops and 2 ankle high boots fit perfectly well on one of the sides. My husband's shoes took up half of the other side, so I used the empty shelves for my purses. On the top I placed our backpacks and a basket with all our caps. We could barely walk in to the closet before, now we can literally dance in there! Great product, I am so happy with it!!" — Barbara H.

    Get it from Amazon for 27.99.

    It can fit up to 40 pairs of shoes.

    Promising Review: "This addition just expanded our storage space so much! Each tier holds 4 pairs of adult shoes. It's light weight and easy to move around. I can easily take it apart and bring it with me since I move a lot. The package came with a bunch of spare parts that I'm also keeping just in case. The wooden hammer tool included was also a great help with tightening the assembly. Highly recommend!" — Vivian

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99.

    22. A comfy cushioned storage bench so you can have somewhere to take a load off, instead of hopping around as you put on and take your shoes off each day.
