I don’t own a lot of shoes personally, but if there’s one thing I learned watching my sisters, it’s that girls can never have enough shoes. Because let’s face it ladies, when it’s time to wear that leopard print dress, those tennis shoes just won’t work!

When fashion is your thing, variety is key! The only problem is that variety often means more shoes than your closet floor (and perhaps bedroom floor and hallway) can accommodate. If this sounds familiar, don’t worry. You can keep all of your fancy footwear. You just need better ways of storing them. Which is why I think you’ll love the clever storage methods below.
