Innovative Ways to Store Shoes

Are your small New York closets incapable of accommodating your love affair with shoes?

One of my proudest moments as an organizer is the session in which I helped a client reduce her designer shoe collection from 75 pairs down to 50!  Another is the stroke of inspiration that liberated a client’s shoe collection from the top of her closets into an unused bookcase with glass doors.  Considering the dollar investment she had made in them and how beautiful they were, why not display them like works of art?

If you are a shoe lover, here are some innovative ways for you to store your collection.

The Shoe Wheel has a footprint of approximately 29 inches by 13 inches, and holds 30 pairs of shoes.  Slide your shoes into the expandable pockets, and simply rotate it to pick out the pair you want to wear  The company also offers a shorter version, called the Shoe Pod, which is only 10 ¼ inches tall and is suitable for mens’s shoes.

If your closet has too little floor space to accommodate the Shoe Wheel or Shoe Pod, try the Shoe Organizing Bed Skirt.   It fits under your dust ruffle and holds 18 pairs of shoes.

Thanks to organizers Monica Ricci and Jeri Dansky for bringing these great products to my attention!
