    Or you can just put the shoes on the shoe racks and look at the actual shoes when deciding what to wear.

    No,not only space issues but need to get rid of the evidence asap and hope the Mrs doesn't notice them on the rack!

    If you only have a few pair fine, I have to many that don't get worn weekly, so they stay dust free in their bags and boxes,

    YMMV

    So brush 'em off when you put them on. Not that hard.

    They actually are sort of organized.
    That stack is mostly fall/winter items.

    Get the hell out of this thread with your common sense. There's no place for your type around here.

    I reuse some of the original boxes for storing shoe care stuff. But all my shoes are stored in plastic shoe boxes from The Container Store

    Haha, or you can get her a separate shoe rack so she won't see yours.

    Of course it is. You need to dust off your sarcasm detector.

    I keep mine. After I put the shoe trees into my shoes and let them sit for a while, I put them back into the box and stack them.
