This shoe compartment of the IKEA Bissa model is very useful, particularly for tiny spaces.
The shoe compartment fits about eight pairs of shoes and is pretty slim, making it great for any tight entrance.
This might be the perfect alternative if you can't have a shoe rack or don't like the way your clothes look out in the open.
We held our "regular" shoes here when we used it and then rotated out with the pairs that were less frequently worn. We used this lightly for a year and moved to a location where we've got shoe closet storage, so they're searching for their next home.
Before we purchased it, it has some cosmetic harm on top. We used the top just for room in the organisation so we never noticed it.
