I own and wear a large number of boots. I do not own a pair of shoes! I ride a Harley and wear a variety of motorcycle boots with my functional leather gear. When not riding my Harley, or when going to work or meetings, I wear cowboy boots or dress boots. I also wear work boots when I do construction and home repair work, or in my yard and gardens.
A complete list of all boots in my collection is here.
If you want to know more about how to construct storage for your boots, read the tutorial I wrote on boot storage on hotboots.com, here.
Scroll down for a view of my boot collection and how I store them. Because boots are an avocation as well as regular footwear, I move them around regularly from basement to bedroom storage areas, as well as on my feet!
Section 1: My basement boot closet. I built a small room when I finished our basement. There are built-in shelves against two walls, where I store about 150 pairs of boots. There are many pairs of taller boots stored against the back wall, and more pairs of boots (short on top, tall on bottom) stored on shelves on another wall.
This is how the boots in the basement boot closet are arranged in 2015:
This is how the boots were arranged in 2008:
Section 2: My garage hanging storage. There are two bars against a wall in my garage, on which I have hung 14 pairs of boots that I do not wear as often.
Section 3: My bedroom closet. A quarter of one of my closets is dedicated to boots. Pairs of boots are stored on shelves against the back wall under the clothes and on interior side walls. I have about 50 pairs of boots in my master closet.
Section 4: Not pictured
Because ankle-height dress boots are so short, they fit neatly under the bed. I also have some boots that are stored in a few other places, such as my spouse's closet or my leather gear closet. Some boots that I just can't wear any more are in boxes, and eventually will be sold on eBay or otherwise moved out and deleted from my collection.
