Magnetic Shoe Storage

'Shoeblox' is a Stylish Vertical Shoe Storage and Display System

— April 4, 2016 — Art & Design
Shoeblox is a shoe storage and display system that allows your shoes to be stored upright in a captivating way. Shoeblox lets you enjoy your shoes even when you are not wearing them.

We all have our favorite shoes, yet for some reason they end up cluttering front entryways, thrown into closets or placed in shoe boxes where they are unable to be seen. Shoeblox solves these problems by giving you additional storage space on your walls. Instead of tripping over your family's shoes, pieces of footwear can be arranged neatly on an entrance wall. Rather than searching for your favorite shoes, you'll find them beautifully displayed and yet still out of the way. Instead of stashing your shoes away in their boxes, they can now be elevated to focal points of conversation.

Anyone with a selection of shoes, small or large, will benefit from the advantages of the Shoeblox. Once a shoe has been elevated into the Shoeblox, it becomes an artistic portrait, a snapshot of personal preference and an image of organization. The Shoeblox Vertical Storage and Display System seeks to give you innovative organization and aesthetics in the same package.

This patent-pending product harnesses the power of magnets to hold footwear vertically on your wall in a way that is infinitely adjustable. The metal panels are extracted using a CAD-based plasma table to ensure consistent sizing and quality of cut. The shoe brackets are made from sustainable cedar, crosscut to exhibit the natural beauty and texture of the wood. Magnetism allows these two traditional materials to be married into a unique and groundbreaking product.

Shoeblox is now raising funds to manufacture and ship a quality product, allowing your shoes to be on display while stored away.
