HOW TO ORGANISE YOUR SHOE WARDROBE
1. Use shoe boxes
Shoeboxes are the best way to keep your shoes sorted, protected and organised. Especially our beautifully made shoeboxes. They are compact and sturdy and the perfect size for your favourite Cammino ballet flats! The best part is multiple pairs of foldable flats can be stored in a single shoebox giving you more room in your wardrobe.
2. Sort shoes into categories
Make sure you sort your shoes into categories for ease of position. Now this can be any way you wish - flats, sneakers, boots, sandals etc. The trick is to gorup shoes with similar shape and mass so they can easily be stored together. This will not only save space in your wardrobe but make it so much easier to find the exact pair of shoes you are looking for or give you options when trying to decide which pair to wear.
3. Add shelves or ladders
If your storage is limited or you need to be able to stack the shoe boxes on top of each other, consider adding shelves or ladders into your wardrobe to give you levels for your shoes to be stored on. Place the shoes close together in pairs and for even more room top and tail your shoes.
4. Place lesser worn shoes on the highest shelf
The shoes that you wear the least should go on the highest shelf so you’re not constantly reaching for your everydayballet flats orsneakers! Place high heels and those shoes you only ever wear on special occasions right at the top. It will make it even more exciting when you get them down. If you’re concerned about dust, use dust bags for extra protection.
5. Colour codes you shoes
Not only is this super fun it will make your wardrobe look super stylish and coordinated. Once your shoes are categorised, place those categories in colour order. From darkest to lightest shades and then admie the organised rainbow of shoes beautifully lined up.
6. Make DIY sandal holders out of coat hangers
Check out these super cheap and easy sandal holders made from coat hangers. Simply grab some wire coat hangers and unhook the closed ends and bend the wire to create big hook like holders for the toe of the sandal. Twist the very end around on itself to avoid sharp edges and place the toe of the sandal across each of the hooks. Continue to create additional coat hanger holders to hang your sandals on.
7. Clean your leather and suede shoes first
Before you start organising your shoes we suggest making sure your shoes are nice and clean. This will ensure you're not keeping old dirt and grime in your wardrobe. Check out our tips on how toclean your leather and suede shoes.
8. Hang boots on pegs
The best way to keep your boots organised, especially knee high or long boots. Sturdy pegs that can hold weight and length are best. If you have wire shelves use the edge to place the peg on and hang your boots lengthwise from the shelf. If you don't have wire shelves, you can use sturdy coat hangers to peg your boots on.
9. Rotate your shoe wardrobe every season
When the new season arrives bring down your winter or summer shoes and have them on the easy to reach shelves. This way you’ll get the most out of your seasonal shoes and discover that you don’t need to buy a new pair of winter boots but perhaps you do need a new pair of Cammino ballet flats or sneakers!
Organising your shoe wardrobe should be a fun and refreshing activity. Be sure to do this over a long weekend or when you have an easy day to yourself, as you’ll find you’ll need to pull all your shoes out of the wardrobe - initially making a mess! But after you’ve sorted into categories, colours and get on your way you’ll love your new organised clean shoe wardrobe.
