7 Ingenious Shoe Racks to Make Organizing a Breeze

It can be tricky to find somewhere to store all of your shoes. Oftentimes, people end up with rows of shoes lined up next to their front doors, or — even worse — may find themselves with disorganized shoes strewn about the floors of their closets.

While clothing can often be folded in a way that takes up as little space as possible, it’s harder to devise ways to make your shoes take up less space — and this challenge becomes particularly daunting when you live in a small space.

Luckily, there are several brands out there that have come up with ingenious solutions to your shoe storage problems. Clever ideas make the most of any extra nook and crannies that may exist in your current living arrangement  by layering shoes on top of each other to save room, or make use of unexpected areas of your home as storage space.

To help you easily sift through the options, FN has rounded up several of our favorite shoe racks designed to vastly increase the amount of storage space you have. All of these items are available to shop right now on Amazon — and if you have a Prime membership, you can get them shipped to your home in just two days.
