      In my opinion, depending on your space and decor, something like this is much more attractive, and you can get these types of benches in many styles, price ranges, and sizes.

      https://www.amazon.com/Prepac-DSS-60...60460915&psc=1


      If that is not enough dust coverage, you can put your shoes in clear boxes like these and then put the boxes in the cubby holes:

      One warning on plastic storage shoe boxes: If you have size 11 or larger, your shoes are not going to fit in many of the plastic storage shoe boxes available. I wear 12 and 13.

      The link to the boxes above fit my shoes quite nicely. I usually put them in dust bags in the boxes, just to avoid scuffing them against each other. I label the outside of the box with the shoe model and sometimes color.
      WHY ARE THE GUYS IN SUITS HERE? HAS SOMETHING GONE WRONG?

        I'd just add a couple of things I've made mistakes with...

        The above amazon rack with the cover is generally good enough. Dust mostly lands on top of these with very little going sideways into them.

        If you get boxes, get ventilated shoe boxes. Because I also wear a larger shoe size that these boxes don't come in, I tried to substitute cheap storage boxes with no ventilation... bad idea. Shoe polish smell doesn't dissipate in a closed box and I discovered mildew grows much better without airflow on shoes I rarely use. I suppose I could have just drilled some holes in them, but I wasn't being that smart.

          There's a 10 tier simple shoe rack on amazon from songmics

          https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MJ4VBXC...ams_ad_dp_ovrl

          Here's a pic of it IRL:

          Can leave a rack open for taller boots, though I find only 7/8 inch boots need to have an overhead rack removed
          It doesn't get much dust really. The overhead panel is waterproof so no dust falls on the shoe/boot below.

          And it takes only 3 min to quickly roll an OXO duster in between the shoes every several weeks or so, it both removes the dust and offers a quick polish.

              so that one still collects dust? i would think the mesh stops it

                Minimum dust really. I really can’t feel or see any though even after weeks. It would probably take a few months for any real dust to accumulate. The duster was mostly an afterthought that worked out well.

                  I bought a medium sized ikea wardrobe for my shoes, and some other clothes, and it made a totally dope shoe rack.

                  a few drawers and shelves, and it's ready for like 20 more pairs of shoes than the 20 i already have :-D

                      Hmmm, maybe a glass-front china cabinet, or a Billy bookcase with glass doors and interior lighting.

                        they're very configutable so you have to design it yourself some but this is like, one piece of the puzzle. https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/pax-war...hite-50214560/

                            This picture makes me want to take all of my shoes out of the boxes and bags so I can enjoy them more often by just seeing them--because I don't get to wear them enough.

                            How many pairs of shoes does it hold?

                              It’ holds 4 shoes or boots per tier. So a 10 tier rack can hold up to 40 pairs. It’s holding 36 since I ended up removing one tier.

                              I’ve tried other solutions from furniture grade bookshelves , open rod racks, to full enclosed shoe and boot plastic Stackable boxes. In the end, I thought the key factors were to see the footwear for easy access and to keep the nasty debris from the bottom of the boot/shoe from falling directly on top of the pair below it. Keeping it vertical as much as possible leaves a smaller foot print too.

                              There’s probably a more robust full metal or wood solutions but this one does its job and in a way disappears leaving just the footwear on display.

                              Basically once you have enough pairs ,If you can’t see them you won’t wear them.

                              Hope this helps
