Editor's Notes

August 10, 2020:

In selecting our hanging shoe organizers, we looked for models made with rugged materials, as well as those with features that let you make the most of your storage space. A good variety of styles was important, too, so we included ones with tiered designs, some with standard cubbies, a couple with mostly fabric builds, and a few with hard materials. Since there are so many types of footwear, we also aimed to include models that could accommodate most of those.

Shoppers who want something akin to hanging shelves where they can place several pairs of shoes side-by-side might like the Whitmor 6486-1746. Its bars can be folded up flat to make room for larg footwear, and it has strong construction. The FKUO 10-Tier also has a spacious design that makes it easy to display and access accessories. Though the rotating Pro-Mart Smart Carousel has a lot of compartments, we removed it because its pockets are too small.

When it comes to durable construction, we like the Storage Maniac Large Pocket Shelf, with its canvas material, as well as the Aristocratic Homewares Over-the-Door Closet Organizer, which has medium density fiberboard panels fortifying its slots. With the thought of durability in mind, we decided to remove the Rubbermaid Configurations since the hangers bend too easily.

We wanted to include versatile options that can hold more than shoes, so we like the Unjumbly TT-B045, which doubles as kids toy storage nicely, as well as the Sleeping Lamb Closet Shoe Rack, with its large, clear pockets that are ideal for purses and even clothing.

As for those looking to secure hefty shoes, there is the Boottique Deluxe Double Decker Boot Caddy, and the Roomganize Sneaker Rack - the latter of which can accommodate men's size 17 sneakers.

August 02, 2019:

It's no secret that if shoes aren't given their own dedicated storage space, they're likely to fall into disarray pretty quickly. That's why hanging organization systems are so beloved. Just hook one of these over the back of your bedroom door, or hang one from a rod in your closet, and you'll basically create storage space out of thin air. Unless you're an extreme minimalist and only have a pair or two of shoes, there's no doubt a hanging shoe organizer will make your life easier.

The products we've included in this list can hold up to several dozen pairs at once, so even the most shoe-addicted among us will be able to find a suitable solution. The Adorn Home Essentials Insta-Shelf and Metrodecor mDesign Chevron were removed from the list due to complaints about quality. The Simple Houseware BO-017-2 and Storage Maniac Shelf have both been added, the former because of its simple design, and the latter for its compact shape.
