    -i store my shoes by the door as opposed to the closet

    -i want something that covers the shoes so that dust is less of an issue

    -i want something clear/see through to display my shoes

    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.

    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.

    Hmmm lots of helpful advice in here, including lots of things i didn't think about like breathability. I'll dig in and let you guys know what i decide, thanks!

    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
