5. Freestanding Shoe Storage Shelves
Freestanding shoe storage solutions work well where there is not designated closet space. Maybe the current closet is small, or there is a room that does not have a closet at all.
This is another example of freestanding shoe rack. The ladder design also gives it a picture-perfect element of design.
6. Shoe Storage Cabinets with Practical Masculinity
The denim blue carpet in this closet adds a subtle hint of masculinity, and the glass front shelves fit many sizes of men’s shoes, even work boots. The glass cabinets and lighting make this a closet anyone would be envious of.
Like above, this shelving gives plenty of room for different types of shoes – golf shoe collection anyone?
Here, the dark wood cabinetry is accented by tasteful metal bars to prevent shoes from slipping off of the shelves. If you look closely, there are also endless customization options, and you can move the shelving to suit your purposes.

This is a shoe display reminiscent of a high-end boutique. Great for kicks of all styles.

If you entertain a lot, your guests will appreciate having somewhere to keep their shoes out of the way.
The lack of space is not a good excuse for not having enough shoe storage. Look at this under the stair design. This is a fairly simple project that can add storage for several pairs of shoes, and placing it right by the door is as convenient as it can get!

This is a pretty basic design, but look at all of those shoes! The layout works well for a multi-person closet with two large shelving areas — or just someone with a ton of shoes! Notice that the top shelf has more height to fit boots or higher profile shoes.
