This wiki has been updated 11 times since it was first published in May of 2020. Tired of shoes piling up at your front door? A good-quality shoe rack is a useful piece of furniture that can maximize space, and is ideal for placement in an entranceway or porch. It not only provides a convenient place to store your footwear, but many can also serve as additional storage for bags, purses, hats, scarves, coats, umbrellas, and other outdoor accessories.

Editor's Notes

June 26, 2020:

Hunting through a pile of shoes, trying to find a matching pair so you can go to work, is a scenario we can all relate to. A suitable shoe rack will free up floor space, make your footwear easy to locate, and will often provide additional storage for your hats, coats, bags, and outdoor accessories. When choosing the most suitable option you need to think about the number of pairs of shoes you and your family tend to have in use at any given point. Your choice needs to take seasonal footwear into account, too. It’s one thing filling up a compact shoe rack with summer footwear, but it will also need to accommodate those big winter boots when the time comes.

The most compact we reviewed are the Honey Can Do SHO-01599, the Ollieroo Entryway Bench, and the Baxton Studio Sheffield. These are all low profile options, and the latter two include upholstered benches, which provide a convenient place for putting on and taking off your footwear. The Bush Furniture Salinas also has limited space for shoes, but does incorporate a full-length section for hanging coats. The Kings Brand Furniture Revolving Organizer has a small footprint as it is a carousel, yet it can happily hold at least 16 pairs.

Large families, on the other hand, will appreciate the extra storage room provided by the Polar Aurora 7 Tier, the Prepac Espresso, and the Baxton Studio Eloise, all of which are tall units and have multiple shelves or cubbies. The ClosetMaid 1302 is part of a range of furniture that includes shelves, cubby holes, and cabinets, and can be mixed and matched together, thanks to their stackable design.
