So you just moved into a new place and mom finally made you take all the sneakers you’ve been storing at her house with you. Odds are you don’t have a sneaker closet like DJ Khaled to house all your pairs, so you will need to get creative. After all, you spent a lot of money over the years building your collection, so you want to make sure that they’re well maintained and the best of the best are properly displayed.
