How do you store boots? I used to store boots in a shoe box that comes when I bought it. It was OK but became hard to know which boot is in the box when my family member and I owned more boots. Of course, you can always write what boot is in the box, but it is easy to mix up after re-writing names a few times in the same box. Also, I usually leave the boots at the entrance when I wear them often during winter. It was good since boots need to be dried, but what would you think if there are a few pairs of boots sitting around at the entrance?
I would recommend having boots rack at the entrance if you or your family wear boots often, maybe it could be only during winter or could be year around if you live in a cold/rainy environment. If you don’t wear boots, or if you have boots that you don’t wear often I would recommend having some boots storage in a closet or garage.
By the way, according to Konmari, Bestselling Autour and Organizing Consultant, heavy shoes such as boots are better to be stored in lower shelves of the cabinets. (see this blog if you want to know more)

Other Products/Ideas to store boots
1. Boots Space Saver
I am happy to introduce another space-saving product from Japan. The Boots Space Saver can save space by sliding one boot heel up and another heel down. You can even adjust to fit tall boots to shorter boots (14 inches to 19.5 inchs). Some reviewers in Japan mentioned that it saves space overall but the cabinet has to accommodate the hight of the holder.
2. Booti Boot Shaper
Have you ever annoyed to see the boots sitting on entryway? We need boot shaper not only to keep the shape of the boot but also to look organized. There are so many options, but The Boots Space Saver does keep the shape of any types of boots and ventilates the boots too. It works to suede boots, which is harder to keep the shape.
