BYGEL Stiletto Shoe Rack

Materials: BYGEL

Description: I came up with a smart and cheap way to store a lot of my wife’s stilettos, pumps etc. I call it the “BYGEL Stiletto Shoe Rack”!

It’s made with six 55 cm BYGEL Rail from Ikea, that I attached to the side of our dresser, creating a vertical shoe rack with a storage capacity of 18 pairs of stiletto shoes.

The BYGEL Rail is very cheap and is perfect for shoe storage as the shoes don’t get scratches and tears from lying up against other shoes and boots.

    I find it really quite interesting and original as it does not occupy much space and stay tidy. Especially for women who often have many shoes.

    Awesome! I am also past my stiletto days (Jo), so the hooks idea is a great modification to suit my needs (Thx Jessika). Very inspiring hack.

    definitely one of the best hacks i’ve ever seen!
    what a brilliant idea!

    We have this system in our closet too. If you put hooks on, you can also hang the non-heel shoes also!

    mmmmmhhhh i think i have to say that. i’m so sorry but i have to, even if you’re a man, and that’s costing me.

    but you’re a pure genius.

    i wish i had thought of it.
    i wish i was still wearing stiletto, or 10cm heels shoes like i was, but i’m older and tired so i’m not wearing them like i used to. maybe my actual shoes won’t fit it :-(
