If your closet looks like the ones in most households, chances are you have an abundance of shoes and no place to put them. Although shoe organizers may be the last thing you think you need, they can give your closet the look and feel of a shoe store by providing a dedicated place for your shoe storage.
For a small closet or when floor space is an issue, you might choose a shoe shelf that hangs from a closet rod. If you have a large collection of shoes, a modular shoe shelving unit that is stackable — such as the one made by Rubbermaid
— may be the most practical choice. Maximizing your use of vertical space is always an important organizational consideration.
Another good thing to consider when choosing shoe shelving is the actual shelf, itself. A good shoe shelf is going to be vented, with gaps small enough so that heels can’t get stuck in them. There are also some “train track” style shoe shelves that are good for sneakers and shoes that don’t have heels.
