I firmly embrace the sentiment that one can never have enough shoes (or at least, that's what I tell myself, considering the amount I spend on them). Often drawing comparisons to Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City, my collection includes numerous pairs of everything: pumps, house slippers, sandals, gym sneakers, fashion sneakers, loafers, mules, ballet flats, ankle boots, knee-high boots, rain boots — the list goes on and on.

If you find yourself with a considerable shoe collection, you've come to the right place. I've become quite adept at devising closet organization ideas in my New York City studio, and I'm eager to share my expert knowledge with you. Keep your expanding wardrobe in check with the best shoe storage solutions money can buy.

‘As with any organization project, the first step in organizing your shoes is to edit your collection. Gather all of your shoes together, from dress shoes to sneakers to winter boots. Then carefully go through them, checking for damage, comfort and fit. Set aside all of the shoes you want to keep, sorting them by type of shoe. For the shoes you no longer want to keep, throw away the damaged ones and donate ones that are still wearable,’ says professional organizer and owner at Living.Simplified. Lauren Saltman.

According to Lauren, your next step is to pull out the measuring tape and determine how much space you’re working with. Questions like ‘Do I have a mudroom or entryway to hold my everyday shoes?’ or ‘Do I have enough space in my master bedroom closet to store seldom worn shoes?,’ are just a few topics that the home organizer considers in her storage search.
