Do you own tons of pairs of shoes that keep your doorways messy and muddy? If so, then you need a shoe rack that can hold up to 50 pairs of shoes all at once. The SONGMICS is a 10-tier shoe rack, meant for heavy payload.
The rack is made from iron pipes, polypropylene connectors, and non-woven tiers. This durable and sturdy construction is a useful asset, especially if you are looking for a long term shoe organizing solution.
In spite of the massive size, the unit is easy to assemble, as all the pieces snap together. Sometimes because of the 68” height, it does not fit in some rooms. In this case, you can separate the shelves to make either 3-tier or 5-tier racks. These should fit in the room.
In the event the shelves spacing are too small for large boots and shoes, removing a number of layers solves the problem. Still the 6 ¾” space between shelves should be enough for sneakers, normal heel, and slippers.
Why We Like
Homebi has specialized in the manufacture of plastic, wooden, bamboo, and fabric storage furniture for some time now. This particular 4-tier shoe rack appeals too many, thanks to the powder coated metallic tubes and plastic construction.
With its 13.2mm thick tubes, this rack holds considerable amount of load, while still remaining functional. The coated metallic tubes do not rust when exposed to reasonable moisture. More importantly, the rack holds 20 pairs of sneakers and heels within its 4-layer shelves.
The rack does not only store sneakers and heels. Sufficient space between shelves creates space for boots, jackboots, and basketball size 11 shoes. Depending on your needs, you can buy two of these and stack them together for an 8 tier, or separate this one into 2, 2-tier shoe rack.

For some style, the 4-tier shoe rack from Simple House is a top notch option. One of the reasons why we like this shoe rack is its compact nature. That’s not only it, the shoe rack is customizable in a number of ways.
When it’s not a 4-tier, you can divide it into half to make a 2-tier rack, in order to fit the available space in your room. Alternatively, one of the tiers can be removed to make it a 3-tier shoe rack. While at it, plenty of space remains beneath for additional storage.
In terms of capacity, we like how spacious this shoe rack is. It can accommodate between 12 and 20 pairs of shoes depending on the size and shapes. A sturdy metallic frame holds together the polyester fabric that forms the shelves.
Eventually, the polyester fabric gets dirty. When it happens, the fabric can be washed. Each of the shelves holds up to 30 pounds in weight.

Since this is a 3 tier, more storage spaces can be created by buying two of these and creating a 6 tier rack. The trick is to get identical options. In this way, you are able to utilize the same floor space to accommodate an extra shoe rack.
More storage means tidy rooms, clean doorways, and enough storage space for other valuables. Perhaps one feature that you are less likely to find in other shoe racks is adjustable height. It stays stable too on floors and neither scratches not leaves dirt marks on polished floors.

Buyers Guide to the Best Shoe Rack
1. Storage Capacity
The best shoe rack for you ought to hold a variety of shoe types. We believe no one owns a single type of shoes. As such, the shoe rack you need has to be spacious enough for flats, slippers, sneakers, heels, boots, and much more varieties.
For men, the shoes types are almost similar, so configuration shouldn’t be a big deal. So, for ladies, consider how many pairs of tall boots and heels you have got, as they will not fit in all the shoe racks available.
Shoe racks have their capacities indicated. For instance, a 20 pair shoe rack will hold 20 pairs of medium to large pair of shoes. Also, consider versatile options that you can use for other storage purposes and not only storing shoes.
2. How easy it is to assemble
Generally, a shoe rack shouldn’t be hard to assemble. Still we have put together a list of shoe racks we believe have clear instructions and guidelines on how to piece. Also, we ensured you won’t require any tools during the assemble process.
3. Probability or Customization
Sometimes, it is not possible to get the shoe rack you need at first attempt of buying. But that shouldn’t be the end of it. You need to have racks that you can customize depending on the types of shoes and space you have got.
A little tweaking in the arrangement of shelves or stacking side by side is a good feature to have. Look for racks you can add similar racks on top, by the side, or ones with adjustable height. However, stay away from racks that are expandable lengthwise. They tend to be wobbly and sag after a while.
While style shouldn’t be a top priority, it is still a valuable feature to have. The last thing you need is an odd looking shoe rack inside your bedroom, bathroom, or living space. Storages have to look nice and tidy when in open space.
Plus, bulky shoe racks are too bulky for your liking. They take up too much space that would have been used for storing valuables, more so when placed in the closet.
