Standard file cabinet drawer is only 9.5" high, not high enough to store shoes vertically same way with the JL chest does.
To answer Z's original question, I think to most efficient way to store shoe is with bookcases with extra shelves. For example, a bookcase 7 ft. high 3.5 ft. with 5" between each shelf has 16 shelves, each shelf can store 5 pairs of shoes to a total of 80 pairs for the whole bookcase. Of course you need to lose all the original shoe boxes, they take up too much space. Check out http://www.scottjordan.com down in Soho, they have some real nice bookcases custom made to your specifications.
