    Shoes get dirty so the ottoman will contain the filth and smell-shoes need to be aired out and cleaned. I clean the shoe and boot soles inside and out and shine them before putting them away for the season. I use boot trays in the winter, and store work boots, hiking shoes in the basement on shoe racks. I slide winter or summer shoes I am not using for the season, in shoe bags so they dont get dusty after cleaning them and store them in shoe racks in my hall closet.
    I have used over the door shoe pockets and it works well but it may ruin your door frame or door upon closing so test it out first. The best ideas are the built in wooden shoe shelves, but they are expensive to install. I never keep street shoes in my bedroom, they are downstairs and shoes come off in the house and we wear slippers and socks around the house. Keep a mirror in the hall to check your shoes/boots with your outfit before you leave.

      what about men's work boots and ladies tall boots, or boots in general, we're not keeping those kinds of boots outside, most of these ideas aren't practical for a small space

        We keep our work boots on wire shoe racks in the basement and garage. We use rubber boot trays in the winter for boots to contain the muck/salt and it works well-it does take up space but you can slide the tray under a hall bench.

      Most Luv the Bungee Cord idea + the OH-SO-SIMPLE but equally hard to obtain Cardboard Box ideas + the Towel Rack idea, and the Closet Rod/Tension Pole idea with the Curled Wire Hangers or Clips. MERELY LUV ANY IDEA that excludes...BUYING FURNITURE for what is a temporary domain right now!

      The old Stackable Shoebox idea is for the birds! Too hard or heavy to peek inside and/or lift lid to view under cloudy/barely-see-thru plastic material and colored lids. (Only good for permanent shoe storage IF shoebox punctured with breathing holes and shoes or boots cleaned & wrapped to prevent mildewing during the season.)


      Even a 3-to-5 shelf BOOKCASE works when you ADD/ATTACH either 1- extra shelf inside existing shelves (flat shoes) - or - add 2 - extra shelves inside for (higher sole step-in shoes). Then leave bottom shelf for boots. (Requires measuring & hardware.)

      Back-of-the-Door Hanging Pockets are... well.....every room doesn't come with lots of doors. So obtain an old door from HABITAT RESTORE or Salvage Yard or Thrift Decor (IF YOU CAN MANAGE TO TRANSPORT THE DOOR(s), that is). Also, OBTAIN or BUY either Angle-Brackets or Hinges or Cut Wood Pieces to construct a flat-based support that will hold the door straight up. Then paint the door and simply hang the shoe units on each side of the door. Doors can also serve as either room section dividers or grouped as room dividers for teens also.

          It's disgusting to store shoes in your bedrooms, get them out in the hallway near the front door or under stair cupboards.

              Omy gosh there are some good ideas but the narrators voice is so annoying that I couldn’t see the video until the end. I agree with comment that we are not 4 years old.

                You can also stuff your flip flops inside of boots.

                    Shoes gather dirt while walking so please make sure to wipe them before storing and sprinkle inner with baking soda to kill bad smell. You don't want to have #smelly feet because of fungus growth inside.your shoe/ storage.

                              I went to dollar tree and bought those collapsible bins to store my flip flops. They have many colors and styles . I own over 50 pairs of dressy flip flops and in sure it will be way better than storing in the big bag I have then in. I hate for the dirt from my shoes to rub on other shoes. I cant see me putting dirty shoes on walls

                                    "Is your house overflowing with shoes?" No, it's not overflowing, but I do have a problem with trying to figure out what to do with them sometimes. I like the ottoman shoe storage in the video but it's so enclosed and does't give them a chance to air out. Wow, this video has storage space ideas for shoes in every nook and cranny in every room. 😲

                                          Cardboard boxes? Really? Also can you get a person that can read the text more naturally? It's awful.

                                                        These ideas are obviously for people who rock sneakers, runners ,converse and flip flops. I don’t think any of these can be used when you have Dr. Martens, loads of hard toe boots, demonia boots, shoes with spikes or expensive ones like timberlands and Jordans. Ain’t no way...

                                                            The problem with most of these ideas is that it leaves your shoes exposed to a lot of dust which is not what I'm looking for. Also shoes look ugly when you've been wearing them and when they're dirty you don't want to hang them all over the place and it looks nasty.
