Step Into Our Shoe Rack

If the shoe fits …

If it doesn’t, toss it!

Shoes are tough.  Especially when we love a pair and are afraid we’ll never find them again (this may be one of the only times we condone purchasing multiple items).

Be discerning and remember if you haven’t worn them in a year, chances are you won’t wear them in the future.

As for the keepers, store according to everyday, occasional and seasonal wear.

Use clear/see through shoe boxes to easily identify.

Or label with pictures!

Adjustable cubbies allow you to create your own shape.

And we love hidden storage.

Shoe Care!

Keeping shoes in great shape eliminates the need to buy new shoes for every occasion.

Keep a shoe care kit and keep it organized by tossing products that haven’t been used in five years (polishes dry up and leather oils/protectors have shelf lives).

Make a habit of protecting new shoes after every purchase – especially leather.

Clean canvas/running shoes using a nylon bristle brush or old toothbrush and a cleanser such as laundry detergent, dishwashing liquid, baking soda or a “suede and fabric” shampoo (rinse shoes with warm water and scrub gently with brush and mixture of water and mild detergent. Rinse with clean water). The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser works wonders on suede and canvas as well!

Shoe bags are also a fantastic way to keep shoes clean and organized. Purchase ones with see through windows for easy access!

“It isn’t the mountain ahead that wears you out; it’s the grain of sand in your shoe”

    Shoe racks that are made from hardened steel are great and i always use them on my home. They really last longer compared to wooden shoe racks. ::*:’

    Kind regards

    Shoe racks offer a convenient means of storage for those of us who have numerous pairs of shoes. The difficulty that many have with the large quantities of shoes, due to the differing footwear requirements of the family unit, is the fact of storage. Taking into account their unusual shape, as well as buckles and heels, they are inherently difficult to store in standard drawers and cupboards, which is why the advent of the shoe rack has alleviated many of these problems.^
