Am I the only one that despises tripping over shoes? Seriously people! With 5 people living in our home…plus a number of neighbor kids always dropping by…shoes tend to be everywhere. One here…one there…then I am tripping about. Ever try to carry groceries through a mess of shoes. It takes skill I tell you. Well I have had enough and am determined to find a clever solution to help resolve the shoe storage issue. A few years back we built a great system for our garage. I haven’t shown it here because…well…it isn’t pretty but it works. Now I am looking for something that will help resolve the issue at the front door. With kids coming and going all day we need a clever solution to help store shoes. Plus…with a little puppy that likes to steal shoes, it is best to just put them away to avoid any casualties. All puppies teeth, so we can’t blame him for stealing whatever he can. One of our friends did say that every puppy needs teething toys, so she recommended that we try and find him some. At least that way, he might leave our shoes alone. We’ll keep tidying our shoes up anyway, it’s a good reason for the kids to learn that they need to keep their shoes safe.
I’m always buying the kids new shoes from places like vessifootwear.com which means more shoes to trip over unfortunately!! Today I have rounded up 20 clever ways to store your shoes that I think will help resolve the issue.

How creative is this shoe storage!? Perfect for the shoe shopaholic. If you’re like my friend (they buy Munro shoes online at least four times a year!) and like to show off your fancy shoes then this is a great way to do so. It works really well for high heels and can hold the shoe if the heel has at least a 1cm difference. For flat shoes or sneakers though you might want to find something else.
