Even though J-Me's horizontal shoe rack doesn't save much more space or prove to be all that different in practice than a normal shelving unit for shoes, I find it's effect exponentially cooler. On its own, the simple piece of bent stainless steel looks modern and minimal. When housing shoes, it kind of makes the row of footwear look like it's floating. Floating footwear is always a crowd pleaser. (Floating lamps receive numerous thumbs up too.)
In addition to closet interiors and around all walls of a foot fetishist's bedroom, the horizontal shoe rack could be valuably installed just inside residential entries or mudrooms to create additional storage for wet and dirty shoes. The pictured model measures 28" in length and holds 4 pairs of shoes. A larger, 48" rack holds 7 pairs. (Larger racks also receive numerous thumbs up.) Wall attachment is via 2 included screws.
