shoe shine

shoes! buying them is a pleasure but housing them gives me a headache. i’ve toyed with the idea of a pax shoe cabinet but i hate its inelegance. flimsy trones also does not cut it for me. but here’s an idea from avid hacker, pk shiu, which may just fit like a sock.

“we bought two ikea magiker short shelves with doors for our entry hall. the original idea was to use those cabinets as secondary storage, while giving us a display space for the entry hall. once we put them up we realized that they are perfect for shoes. the only trouble is that we could use double the shelves. today i found a new shoes rack that is not in their catalog called fran. they fit perfectly in the cabinet, but you need to take one of the doors off temporarily to put them inside.” read more here.
