How deep should a shoe rack be?

How to calculate the size of a shoe rack? The optimal shelf depth for a pair of women’s shoes is 30 cm, and for men’s – 40 cm. Then there may be enough space even for a box. To understand how many pairs will fit in a row on one shelf, assume that women’s shoes are approximately 22 cm in width, and men’s shoes are 25 cm in width.

The main parameter is depth. The standard depth of a shoe rack is 60–80 cm. However, if you need more spacious storage, you can find a 120 cm shoe rack. The average height is about 100 cm. The width and number of shelving depends on how much free space there is in the hallway.
