I’d say in the last couple of years that Joseph’s shoe collection outgrew his little corner of our closet that his few pairs of shoes have lived for the first 6 years of our marriage. Then this last 3 years, his Converse collection and boot collection and dress shoe collection has really multiplied! So for Father’s Day a couple of years ago we got him a shoe rack and now his collection has again outgrown that rack. I love organization and everytime I walked in the closet it would annoy me that there were shoes everywhere, so back to Amazon to find a bigger rack. I bought this one and JJ helped me assemble it. She helped me move all the shoes to the new rack and then she took the old rack for herself, lol! We only got 17 pairs of his shoes on the new rack and that was squeezing them in!
