Display Those Shoes

display them shoes


I love my shoes. To be honest I am yet to meet a girl who doesn’t love her boots, heels, wedges or pumps. However, shoe storage is one of those things that most women I know struggle with, or at least storing them in a way where you can see what you have is a challenge (and I have experienced this myself). We don’t like seeing them in boxes …we all love to showcase all the pairs we have and choose a different pair each day. That becomes the challenge. We all love them, they’re all pretty in their special way and they make us happy. Yet very often our shoes end up being stuffed into boxes or our closets and we forget about them (or how many pairs we own!). Yet we splurge so much money on our shoes and still can’t get enough of them. A few of us even believe that our heels are works of art – so I thought why not display them as such?


This idea is inexpensive but beautiful. The idea of hanging our shoes on pieces of crown or architectural moulding is crazy – but it looks great. Let the moulding blend in by painting it the same colour as your wall or really embrace the “shoes as art” and paint it a fun, contrasting colour.

Another great idea would be to line the walls of a walk-in wardrobe or a dressing area with picture-rail moulding to make a tidy yet visually impressive display. Great way to see all the shoes nicely on display as well as hanging some of your other favourite pieces too.

If you think that your favourite pair of shoes is just too damn pretty to be cruelly concealed away in a box, display them all!

If you like your things organised and not much colour this is a great shoe storage design using the same boxes with pictures of shoes on the outside of each box. Very practical and tidy.

If you are like my sister than maybe your collection looks like this. Black and white only but so neatly displayed.

I have completely fallen for this idea. So simple and it looks like a shoe shop display. Maybe I will try this out one day at my place. You can make it inexpensive too with IKEA storage shelves & boxes.

This versatile shelf system can be also produced from IKEA grid shelves, affordable & stunning.

I admire this one. This is a very remarkable idea. This just works on every level.

Cheap way and great storage idea.

If you are fortunate enough to have a whole wardrobe to display all your shoes this idea would be a winner. Perhaps this would be the most practical and I know my husband would appreciate this idea the most. I am also sure he wouldn’t appreciate seeing shoes hung on the walls and to be honest this idea suits me fine as I can still see all my shoes and I can secretly sneak a few extra pairs in at least once a week.

From memory, I think I’ve counted over 50 pairs of shoes in my little storage area. Some I might not ever wear again however each one of them hold a special place in my heart and I just can’t imagine getting rid of them. I think my collection is fairly little – I am sure some girls have over 100 of pairs if not more. How many shoes do you have? How many is too many? That’s a silly question isn’t it? If you have room for them – keep them coming – after all they make us really happy.
