Is the entrance to your home so littered with shoes that you can barely remember what color the floor is? That’s precisely the problem we were facing when we stumbled across the Shrine Rack, a simple stainless steel shoe rack that elevates your loafers, sneaker and heels off of your floor, organizes them, and even does double duty as a neat piece of wall art. We like that the handy rack uses very little material compared to other shoe storage units and it doesn’t hurt that each one is made in the U.S.A. Shrine recently sent one of their wall-mounted organizers to us to try out and we loved it so much that we ended up buying one more. If you’re looking for ways to tidy up your pad that don’t take up a lot of space, read on for our full product review.

PROS:

First, let’s state the obvious – the Shrine rack is the Fonzie of shoe racks. People just cannot gaze upon the Shrine without involuntarily uttering the phrase “Cool shoe rack!” If you’re looking for the items in your home to elicit that kind of response, the Shrine will do it for you.

Another aspect that we liked about the Shrine rack is that it allows you to see the shoes that you have available to you. If you’ve ever dug in the back of your closet for something, found a pair of shoes you love but that somehow got buried out of sight and out of mind, displaying your shoes on your wall could easily solve that issue. It’s also a visual reminder of the types of shoes you already own and therefore don’t need to buy again (do you really need another pair of suede loafers?)

Because of its smart, stainless steel design (we should mention that the newest iteration of the Shrine now uses 25% less material), the rack is lightweight and, unless someone happens to take an industrial use laser cutter to it, will last lifetimes. If for some insane reason, you wanted to throw it away, you could easily recycle it too. Last but not least, despite being made in the San Francisco Bay area (instead of somewhere in China), the racks are strangely affordable starting at $29.99 for the single pair holder and $49.99 for the 3-pair.
