If you have a large footwear collection, it’s important to utilize proper shoe storage. Not only will this help you stay organized, but it can also keep pairs in better condition by preventing them from piling up on the floor.
From shoe racks to shelves and underbed units, there’s a breadth of shoe storage options on the market to choose from. For footwear aficionados and those who love aesthetically-pleasing options, drop-front shoe boxes offer both a stylish and functional way to organize your shoe collection.
While these aren’t the most space-efficient designs, they’re great for storing out of season pairs on closet shelves or to showcase your most prized sneakers, heels and more.
These containers, which open from top to bottom via a front closure, protect pairs from dust and are typically made of clear plastic, so you can easily identify styles.

When shopping for these, looks for ones that are stackable to maximize space. Of course, you’ll also want to choose options that accommodate your shoe size (some may better fit women’s styles or are able to store large men’s shoes, according to the manufacturer’s recommendation). You’ll also want to consider how many pairs you’ll want to store, as many drop-front shoe boxes come in sets. And, depending on your preference, you may prefer a style that’s transparent from every angle or only partially see-through.
With all that in mind, shop eight drop-front shoe boxes worth adding to your home.
