One of the world’s largest sneaker collections belongs to the “Chicks with Kicks,” three sisters who own more than six thousand pairs! Their collection is estimated to be worth more than $2 million.
You likely don’t have that many pairs of shoes, but if you collect sneakers, boxes piled high in a dark closet are no way to store them. With these tips and tricks, you’ll be able to create a unique shoe display that serves as a storage solution while adding to your room’s decoration.
Choose a Shoe Display System
The first thing you’ll want to do is decide the number of sneakers you want to display. Then, you can choose the storage system that fits your budget and style. Here are some ideas.
Since they don’t take up much space, wall shelves are a great and affordable solution. You can place each pair of sneakers on their own small rack or purchase extended shelves that can hold many pairs. If you decide to put several pairs together, make sure to space them apart, so they don’t appear cluttered.
If you want it to appear as if your sneakers are floating on the wall, you can use wall mounts. The mount will hardly be visible so that all eyes will be on your shoes. If you have a pair with a cool sole, you can position it on the mount to show it off.
Floating Shoe Display Boxes
If you have some high-value sneakers that you want to protect while displaying them, this is a great option. Each pair can be placed in its own clear case and hung to make a beautiful shoe display wall.
Perhaps you live in a rental home and can’t put any holes in the wall. If so, a tower is a great alternative. A vertical tension pole with shelves will do the trick.
Organize by Style and Color
Once you know how you’ll display your shoes, you’ll need to think of the order that you will arrange them. You can do so according to style, brand, or color.
The great thing is that you can switch up how you display your shoes by rearranging them every so often. Doing this will give your display a fresh feel without having to purchase more shoes.
Light It Up
Do you want to attract more attention to your display? If so, add some lights behind your shelves. One way to do this is by using LED strips with white or colored lights.
Protect Your Shoes
If you cherish your shoes so much that you want to display them, you should also consider how you will keep them safe. Over time, UV rays can break down and even crack the materials from which sneakers are made. Even elements like air and humidity can cause your sneakers to deteriorate.
So what can you do to keep them safe? The best way is by storing them in specially made shoeboxes made from materials like acrylic. Doing so will keep your shoes visible, so you don’t have to compromise your display style to protect your collection.
