Storage can be a walk in the park for some and a struggle for others, especially if space is limited.
You might reserve that room on top of your wardrobe for your sneakers, or stack them against the wall. Maybe you store your sneakers beneath your bed or display them on a shoe rack. On a bookshelf or floating shelves? The options are truly endless.
What's there to complain about when you can use what you already have and not spend any money? You can organise your collection however you want in different stacks such as brand, model, colour etc. Click here for more tips on organising your collection. Keeping your sneakers in boxes prevents dust or any unwanted substances getting onto your kicks. The only con is your boxes could potentially get damaged depending on how tall the stacks are.

If you want to rid yourself of boxes and want something practical and affordable, a decent shoe rack costs no more than £15. It won't leave you eating ice and crackers till your next payday. As your kicks will be exposed its inevitable that they'll become dusty unless you plan to clean them regularly or use a cloth as a cover.

A step up from shoe racks are the aesthetically pleasing, clutter-free floating shelves. Are you after more floor space or a wavy backdrop for your IG feed? If so, these are for you. Stack your boxes on floating shelves or throw them out. Although the shelves remain fixed, you don't have to keep the same sneakers on display all year round. Display your recent pickups or your favourite sneakers, whatever you like. For that extra oomph, add some LED lights, standard or colour changing ones.

Right at the very end of the scale are bookshelves and shelving units. These are the preferred methods for collections on the larger side. If you have a smaller collection mix your sneakers with; books, console games, art, plants, pictures or whatever your heart desires to utilise storage space.
