Boot storage solution in the entryway and in a closet

by kaori

How do you store boots? I used to store boots in a shoe box that comes when I bought them. 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 stored 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.

Boots hangar

Boots storage box

Container Store boot box: This is a clear plastic boots box to keep your boots visible while they’re being protected.
