Keep Your Boots Handy with a Boot Rack Near the Door
Once your boots are dry (by setting them on a boot tray), then it’s very handy to store your boots near the door or in a mudroom.
Isn’t that just more clutter in the hallway?
A boot rack keeps things organized! You would have more clutter if your boots and shoes were laying all over the floor. You can see all your boots neatly lined up, since they’re not in a jumbled heap in a basket or closet.
But how to know which one to get? Some of them are flimsy and tip over when you place a pair of boots on them. Some are just ugly. You want a nice-looking, usable, practical place to put things. After looking at lots of boot racks, these are the Top 5 (in our humble opinion and based on Amazon.com customer ratings).
The Top 5 Boot Racks (in no particular order)
This one is a no-brainer. It’s the #1 Best Seller in Shoe Racks & Trees on Amazon.com! There’s a reason customers like it so much. It’s attractive. It’s wide, so it holds a lot of shoes and boots. It’s lightweight. It’s stable. It comes with balancing feet. It folds flat for easy storage.
It’s simple to set up. Actually, ridiculously simple. You don’t need a screwdriver and the shelves snap in place.
It’s stackable. The units fasten together with screw-in connector pins. When you stack them, you can opt for more space on the second rack. That means more room on the second shelf for boots.
You can also expand it horizontally!

An attractive rack that holds up to 6 pairs of boots, this one looks nice and is sturdy. Hang your boots downward which helps them to retain their shape. It’s tall enough to hold knee-high boots. The middle rack is adjustable. There’s a plastic shelf on the bottom to catch drips.
This one is also stackable! That saves space, and accommodates more boots.

Here’s a great idea: a boot rack dryer. You can store a pair of boots on this rack but the real benefit is using it to dry boots, shoes and gloves. Place your boots upside-down on it, then position it over a forced-air heating vent. When the furnace fan turns on, the warm air is forced up and gently dries your boots.
Take it along on vacation. It fits easily into a suitcase. After playing in the snow or walking in the rain, let the hotel’s heating vent dry your boots in no time.
