from PinterestSlanted Shelves for Better Views
Shoe storage, like any closet storage, is all about seeing and appreciating what you have. I love to store shoes on slanted shelves. They give a better perspective of heel height, detailing, and backsall of which matter when choosing a stunning ensemble.

...If you can spare the room. Sometimes tight closet spaces won't allow it. However, a perch for pulling on your favorite heels is a closet luxury that feels like an essential. Seating is also wonderful for admiring your prize collection!
