Editor's Notes

June 09, 2020:

To keep your boots in the best shape possible, we've looked for a wide range of options that includes racks, shapers, and more. We ultimately decided to remove the Whitmore Rack, however, as it tends to fall over, making it seem frustratingly flimsy to many. But when it comes to stability combined with space-saving design, the Boot Butler Storage Rack still comes out on top. It requires some assembly, but it beats cheap racks that take up a lot of space. You'll need some room in your closet to hang it, though. If you're already pressed for closet space, a rack might make sense, which is why we kept the Better Homes & Gardens Organizer and the Innoka Standing Rack. The former is exceptionally useful, as it can hold umbrellas along with your footwear, and you can stack several, in case you have an extensive shoe collection. The latter is useful but perhaps not all that attractive, so plan to stash it away in your mudroom.

As for inserts, we still like the My Boot Trees, and we added the Cedar Green Shaper. If you are fighting shoe smells, the Cedar Green model will be particularly useful, as the cedar keeps moisture at bay and offers a pleasant and refreshing odor. Or, if you're looking for a budget-friendly model, the Booti Color Pack may be the way to go. Crafted from flexible plastic, these aren't particularly fancy, but they're effective enough, and packable, too.

Special Honors

Lone Star Western Decor Metal Star Keep your boots, hats, and belts all in one place with the Lone Star Western Decor Metal Star. You'll need plenty of room for it, as it stands 4 feet tall and nearly 2 feet wide, but it's an attractive piece that works just as well for display as it does for storage.

Lucky Shoe Creations Cowboy Boot Rack The Lucky Shoe Creations Cowboy Boot Rack is crafted from horseshoes with a glossy black finish, making it both unique and visually appealing. It's a little pricey, but it offers plenty of space, with two tiers that can accommodate up to six pairs of boots.

L.L.Bean Rustic Tray It won't keep your boots from flopping over, but if you're more concerned with the shape of your floors than your footwear, the L.L.Bean Rustic Tray has got you covered. A handsome wooden option, each is handcrafted with a 4-inch-high border to keep dirt, salt, and grit contained.
