There are a number of headaches that come with having a large sneaker collection, but most ’heads will agree that one of the biggest challenges is finding a good place to store your prized pairs. Ideally, you want something that will house them safely while still allowing easy visibility and access to each sneaker. It sounds simple enough, right?

The only problem is that sneakerheads aren’t necessarily known for their interior design expertise, and kicks have a tendency to be carelessly thrown into a random pile where they often end up disappearing for weeks, months or even years. It shouldn’t be this way and, quite frankly, your collection deserves more respect and care than that.

That’s why we’ve put together this helpful guide to some of the best and easiest-to-make sneaker shelving. We considered things like assembly time and difficulty, shelf depth and user reviews to round up the best options currently available. Then we went a step further and crunched the numbers to give you a better idea of exactly how many pairs you’ll be able to store in each unit. There’s no need to stress or throw your back out over it, these are Sneaker Storage Shelves You Can Make Yourself.
