Kick it old school with these lockers. Easily affordable (especially if bought second-hand), these slim lockers make for a vintage touch and easy sneaker storage. Tip: You can purchase a couple of IKEA hanging organizers such as this one to keep things tidy.

An IKEA home hack that’s been trending on Pinterest recently includes this huge slide-out picture frame that doubles up as a slide-out shoe tray. Nifty, ain’t it?

These staircase shoe shelves are a great way to tidy up walkway mess. The best part? They can be hidden and prevent dust from settling on shoes that haven’t been worn in a while. Talk about two-in-one benefits!

 

6. Ladders Come in Handy

A ladder propped up on the back door is a sturdy alternative to bulky in-the-way shoe cabinets.
Plus, we’re loving the urban effect that these rustic wooden ladders give.

Old wine crates lying about at home? Get your hands dirty and start your own DIY project! Paint them over and mount them to your walls. It makes for a simple yet artistic “showcase” of your prized possessions.

Shoes on the staircase can be a great and accessible way to “store” your shoes, provided you’re not prone to tripping!

An IKEA bookshelf can double up as a shoe organizer. Not only is it wallet-friendly, but the storage space is immense! We suggest opting for darker colors to hide scuff marks.
