Get the shoes off your floor and organize them into a hanging shoe rack. These are recommended for closets with extra hanging space or a small amount of floor space storage.

Wooden shoe racks are studier and often more polished looking. Because they are less malleable than other types of shoe racks, it's important you measure your closet space before installing one.
