I am trying to figure this out too, because mine mostly live in their boxes, but in my new closet they take up way too much room.

Most of mine are kept in their boxes in my home office closet. But I do have some littered across the bottom of our bedroom closet (not just splayed across the floor, neatly! I promise!), and then some hanging on the back of the door shoe hanger thingy.

@SpecialSundae:  Most of mine are not expensive…they just have boxes lol I do have some on an over the door rack and my very casual shoes are in a rubbermaid tub thingy. I am thinking about taking the rest out of their boxes and lining them up along the wall of my closet, because I can’t use the lwer rail to hang up clothes right now. SMH

I use something like this and double up the flat shoes/flip flops

We also use those stacking shoe racks… But I really want to do something like this.. I found it on pinterest.. 


You can install a bar like the blogger did, hang them in the regular part of your closet.. or you can even use a showercurtain rod

Most of mine live in their boxes bc I don’t want to get dust on them. They are stacked between the wall and a tall thin dresser, under the bed, and closet floor. They have post its with labels so I know what’s in the box

In their boxes stacked up on the top shelf of my closet.  We have a verrrrry long and narow closet so I have room for them until we move some day.  The ones that didn’t come with boxes I put in rubbermaid containers.

Oh honey, don’t you let anyone tell you 50 is too many, if anythng that’s a good start…I have an entire closet allocated to my shoes ONLY!  I always store in the original boxes, using the original plastic wrap or chamois dust cover and shoe tree they come with.
