The Shoe Shelf provides a great alternative to traditional shoe racks that can often take up as much space as the shoes themselves. This storage unit instead distributes the owner's shoe collection along the wall, offering a simple and easy solution while also adding a unique element to the home.

Designed by Helsinki-based Martina Carpelan, the Shoe Shelf is capable of holding up to four pairs of shoes at once. It features a slim lip and a black shock cord that securely fastens the shoes so that they stay put. The Shoe Shelf can also accommodate just about any type of shoe, including men's and women's footwear. Made out of coated sheet metal, the Shoe Shelf's lip has a deep green carpet lining to better protect the shoes as well.
