Walk-in closets might be every person's dream, but they're not every person's reality. So when you need a practical way to store your shoes, the best shoe racks for closets can help you achieve a perfectly organized space.
The best shoe rack will vary depending on the closet and what space is (or isn't) available. The three most common types of shoe racks are:
- Hanging: Serving as a vertical storage solution, this type of shoe rack can be hung on your closet rod and has individual compartments to hold each pair of shoes.
- Over-the-door: This type of rack is designed to hook over a traditional pivot door (it won't work for sliding or bifold doors). If real estate on the floor is scarce and you can barely fit all of your clothing on the rack as it is, this is the perfect way to make more out of less.
- Standing: When you have the floor space in your closet, standing racks are a great way to store a wide variety of shoe sizes and styles — including boots.
Below, I've rounded up the best shoe racks in each category, arranged from smallest to largest capacity. And if you've been bitten by the tidying bug, you can also check out these closet organizer accessories.
