Great family, @ayoungs.
My storage solution (apologies for the low lighting - my closet bulb is pretty pathetic - hopefully you can still get the gist):
Eight of these, stacked to make four racks with 18 pairs each, $160 spent:
Nice glimpse at your collection of shoes! This gives me some ideas of how to store them, thanks!
How long did it take to build that collection?
8 of those will hold 72 shoes, that'd be able to keep up with my collecting, of course my partner says any more shoes and the old ones start getting donated (although he continues to like all but the white MTO shoes I just got).
Thanks. Believe it or not, the majority of them were obtained within the last year.
I should also mention that those shelves are expandable horizontally, such that I believe you could fit four pairs on a row if you had the room to open them to their maximum width.
