Shoes, shoes, shoes!

Life was simple back in the day. The options were few:

House slippers, rubber shoes for PE, occasion shoes, and a pair of school shoes.

These days one needs to have a minimum of 5 pairs of essential shoes: a pair of slippers, sandals, crocs, rubber shoes, sports shoes, ankle boots, knee-high boots, occasional heels, doll shoes, the list cant be exhausted.

With all these shoes in the house, can you imagine the headache of storing them and if you are a family with kids, all the best.

That said, here are a few considerations to make when storing shoes.

  • Accessibility

It is crucial to put children’s shoes in an easily accessible rack, at a height they can reach out for theirs.

The same goes for indoor shoes like slippers. These need to be kept near the entry point of the home.

  • Type of shoes

Boots need more space for storage and therefore need alternative storage and not your typical shoe rack.

  • Frequency of wearing

Occasions and gatherings determine how often we wear some shoes. Such shoes can be the least accessible in the storage unit.

  • Season

Seasons come and go. And so do the needs of our shoes. Sandals and open shoes are best for warm weather, while boots for the cold season determine how to store away such shoes and make them accessible when the right season is on.

Whatever you do, make it work for you.
