    There are many ways to store shoes in order to best care for your treasured footwear. Don’t store shoes on the floor of your closet — they’re likely to get scuffed and dirty there.

Alternatively, hanging organizers that you can position prominently in your closet if you have the space are a good storage solution for your shoes. On 1stDibs, find a variety of antique and vintage shoe storage options.
