Ninainvorm has tuned industrial shelves from garage tool storage to chic shoe displays. She's also accessorized them with scarves and bags.
This setup is for people who have a lot of Christian Louboutins and want to show off the red heels when In Style comes over.
Collectors of vintage shoes and boots should leave them out to admire, as this collector has.
This closet has more shoes than Bob Ellis. Note the space reserved for boots along the bottom of the built-in wall.
These shelves are a nice sensible way to keep your shoes within your eyeline. When you leave them on the floor, certain pairs are buried by long dresses and may never be heard from again.
I love that this closet keeps all the shoes in one place. What you can take away from this is that if you are out of room in your closet, you can outfit a freestanding armoire to hold all of your shoes. My one quibble: point one shoe forward and one backwards so that you can really see what you've got going on.
Surprise! It's a nice deep drawer for storing the fancy stilettos. If you're like me, it's a rare day that you choose to hobble around in those anymore, so it doesn't matter that they are not out on display front and center.
This versatile cubby system can be created from IKEA grid shelves.
This is an excellent system for gents. Unless they collect kicks, they tend to have relatively few pairs of shoes, and this way they can see which ones are ready for a shine.
Shelves you would typically use for folded T-shirts and sweaters may be used for shoes.
I'm all for putting shoes at eye level. Otherwise, you may wind up with a mismatched pair! Again, I'd turn one shoe in and one shoe out.
Smaller cubbies are a good space saver. Not that this lucky person is short on closet space.
Tilted shelves are a great option, and a bumper on the front is a good way to keep them from sliding forward.
Oh yeaaaaah.... If this were my closet, I'd be very tempted to head straight to Roger Vivier to fill my shelves. Then I would have to declare bankruptcy due to credit card debt. It's a good thing it's not my closet.
This closet was on the Modern Atlanta Homes Tour a few years ago. Isn't it great the way they integrated the shoe photography into the shoe storage area?
This could have been wasted space. Instead, this clever designer has created a window seat with room for shoes underneath.
If you like to leave your shoes in boxes, these are ideal: They have drop fronts so that you can stack them and then grab your shoes without making all of the boxes tumble.
This is a great back door solution for keeping snowy boots and mucky shoes from glopping up the rest of the house. Buy an inexpensive (but cute as all-get-out) rug from IKEA and provide a rack so that this footwear never makes it a few feet past the back door.
I have a drawer next to the back door in my house that is less sophisticated than this set up. I call it the "It's a miracle, I'm going to the gym"/"I need to chuck something on my feet to go get the paper" shoe drawer. It contains a pair of flip flops, a pair of gym shoes, and whatever other shoes I've kicked off near the door that week.
