Shoe racks can maximize the space in any size closet, reducing clutter by storing shoes vertically. They allow you to store a maximum number of pairs, making use of floor space, hanging space and door space.

Freestanding racks are available in a variety of materials, like wood, metal, bamboo and plastic. Choose from cubby styles as well as tiered, standing, revolving and stackable options.

Shoe racks and shoe storage and organization products often cost less than one pair of shoes, typically ranging from $14 to $24.

Expandable and stackable rod racks make efficient use of vertical space but are not suited for stiletto heels and may not have adequate depth to fit many men's shoes.

Hanging magazine racks and wine racks can be repurposed for shoes and crown molding or picture shelf molding can be used to hang shoes on walls by their heels. Wire shelves display shoes well and also make good use of wall space.

Tower racks and revolving racks make use of vertical space while allowing for air circulation and reducing dust accumulation. Tension poles from floor to ceiling and shoe-tree-style racks can take up as little as one foot of floor space. When they are full they can be very heavy and they do not work as well on carpeted floors.
