No matter if you wear boots, pumps, slippers, stilettos, trainers or wellies, you still need somewhere to store them.

Benefits of shoe storage

There are various benefits associated with storing shoes properly, which include:

  • Reduced floor damage
  • Shoe preservation and longevity
  • Neat and tidy aesthetic

How to organise your shoes – from a shoe storage pro

To bring you the latest on everything shoe storage chic, we teamed up with Deirdre McGettrick – founder of furniture search and discovery engine,, and co-host of The DnA of Home Interiors podcast.

From a cupboard under the stairs to a concealed shoe rack, every household has its own way of storing shoes. Think about differentiating shoes into two categories: shoes you need regularly and those you only wear on occasion.

For shoes you wear once or twice a week, consider adding a shoe rack inside your wardrobe as a subtle reminder to wear them when you get dressed. Consequently, this leaves your space near the front door free.

For occasion shoes, Deirdre recommends keeping each pair in labelled shoe compartments or footwear storage boxes. Then, either store them within your wardrobe or underneath your bed. Not only does this keep your storage organised, but it also saves you time when you’re looking for a specific pair.

Finally, when it comes to purchasing shoe storage solutions, always consider the look you are going for and how often you use each pair. This will enable you to invest in the solution that best fits the space.
