Looking at this picture on the ClosetsGuru.com web site reminded me that while I've written quite a lot about shoe storage, I've barely touched on boots. That particular product is the pricey boot tree sold by LA Closet Design - but there are many other options.
The boot shapers with hangers made by Austin-Abbott use the same approach and cost much less. If you'd like boot shapers and don't care about the hangers, there are many other options.
For a different sort of hanging option, there's the boot hanger from Bootique.
And then there's this boot hanger intended for English riding boots, Western boots, and certain motorcycle boots. The hanger is inserted through the pull strap loops.
A totally different approach is to hang the boots upside down. You could use the rack shown above, or one of many similar products.
Brundlefly has some nice boot racks made from pine and oak. Update on January 9, 2012: Brundlefly no longer sells this product, but it has a similarly-styled rack for children's boots.
Here's an upside-down boot hanger that goes over a closet rod.
Then there's the approach involving putting boots over pegs. I've shown this one from Brundlefly before, but it's nice enough to shown again.
These welly boot racks use the same approach but have a totally different style.
And if you like the peg approach but don't want the boots on the floor, there's this wall-mounted Wellington boot rack.
Finally, there's always the simple boot box option. [via Mighty Goods]
