Looking for boot storage ideas like boot hangers or boot holders? I have organized shoes and boots for a lot of clients in different ways, so you have come to the right place. :)
Below you'll find the process for getting your boots organized, photos of how I store my boots and some great boot storage product suggestions.
Enjoy and happy organizing!
This is my collection of boots...well, PART of the collection. Keep reading to find out how I keep them organized and accessible and for some fantastic, easy tips on organizing your boots.
The first thing you need to do is get rid of all the shoes you don't want.
Ask yourself questions in order to help with this process. When was the last time you wore them? Are they still in style? Are they in good shape? Are they comfortable? Here's the detailed organizing process for decluttering your shoe collection, so that you are only left with the ones you are going to keep.
Once you've gotten rid of all the boots you don't want, sort those that you are keeping into categories. For example, you could sort them by type of boot (winter & rain boots, heeled boots, flat boots, cowboy boots) or by when they are worn (out-of-season boots and in-season boots)...whatever categories make sense to you now and later when you are going to retrieve a certain pair.
The whole point here is to be able to find what you need in a snap AND be able to get to it without too much effort.
I store my boots according to how often they are worn. Heels tend to hurt my feet very quickly, so I don't wear the heeled boots that much. Hence, the few pairs I do have, that come in handy every once in a while, are kept in a labeled bin at the top of my closet. I keep a folding step ladder in my closet, so I can get to them very easily should I need to.

Boots are big, bulky and take up a lot of space, so I highly recommend choosing a few different locations for them. I have 2 "homes" (3 in the winter) for my boots.
As shown in the photo above, I store the boots I rarely wear away in a labeled bin at the top of my closet.
During the cold months, I keep one pair of winter boots on a shoe tray in the entryway. This is a good place for them, because they are worn almost everyday and it prevents me from tracking in any mud.
In the photo below, you can see that I keep the boots that I wear most frequently out on a shelf in my closet. Again, I keep a folding step ladder in my closet, so accessing this shelf is very easy.
As you can see, I'm a sucker for flat boots! They live on that shelf year-round, because of how often I wear them. With the step stool in my closet, it's very easy to get them down and just as simple to put them away.
Boot organizers are great for maximizing space and keeping your shoes in good shape. Below are a variety of boot storage products that may come in handy, and here are some awesome, creative storage ideas. Check them out!
