If a massive pile of shoes is piling up on your closet floor (or by your front door!), you need a little organization help. Fortunately, the pros at Horderly have three smart ways to tackle the shoe pile for good—whether you have extra shelf or floor space for shoe storage, or you need to think vertically.

Tip: Rather than storing each pair with their toes facing the same direction, swap one shoe so its heel is next to its match's toe, to help you maximize your space.
