    Ive started to acquire more shooz than I have space in my closet, under my bed, corners of the den, mantle by the fireplace, etc. I need a way to store them, keep em together, and not crammed and piled together...I used to keep them all in their boxes, but thats just a pain in the ass. And as much as id love to have a dedicated room just for my foot warmers, it aint in the cards. So how do you store yours? Show some pics!

    It is becoming an issue for me as well. Right now they are all in the floor in my closet. I keep the pair that I am going to wear the next day in front of my full length mirror for the next day.

    I use these stackable shelves made by closetmaid ($10 at walmart). I can keep 3 shoes on each row. Four of these will give you room for 30 shoes (with boots on top shelf) and they will fit nicely below your hanging shirts even in a 2' wide closet. [​IMG]

    I've been using this over the door shoe hanger for years. It's nice to be able to see them all in one place.
    It also keeps me from exceeding 12 pairs of shoes. It's made of breathable canvas and holds them all in their shoe trees without any issue. I picked mine up at Kmart.

    do shoe trees help a lot?

    they are a necessity to keeping your shoes in shape long term, and prevent wrinkling. every shoe should, unless its airing out, have either a foot or a shoe tree in it.
