Staying organized can be a downright struggle, especially if you have an extreme amount of shoes laying around — and especially if you don’t have a giant closet space! The result is finding several pairs under the couch, stored in cars or piled up by the front door. It’s time to fight the clutter, and the answer is simpler than you think.

No more tripping over your kid’s Nike Airs or losing your go-to work pumps. From stylish kicks and ballet flats to six-inches stilettos and cowboy boots, there’s a shoe organizer, rack, cabinet and closet out there to keep them out of sight and mind. Here’s a few options we think you’ll kick up your heels over.

Shoe racks

Sorry, this shoe rack won’t help hinder your shoe-buying habits — but maybe encourage them instead. When you have a four-tiered shoe organizer that can hold up to 30 pounds each, you have to fill it up somehow. Don't just take our word for it — over 32,000 verified Amazon shoppers rated this shoe rack a perfect five stars.

4-Pair Natural Boot Rack

Now you never have to neglect your favorite knee-highs or rain boots! This unique boot rack is made up of Tennessean solid oak poles, solid enough to hold four pairs of shoes but easy to fold and store away when not in use.

If you want to get fancy with your footwear storage, this West Elm mid-century piece is something you won’t want to hide away in the closet. Not only is it a charming addition to any room (we’re in love with the acorn finish), but it’s also Fair Trade­– and Greenguard Gold–certified. This also doubles as a mini mantle for magazines, low-maintenance indoor plants or any other noteworthy home decor.
