I don't like shoes in the house. I can only imagine all the germs on the bottom of your shoes. Guess it's the way I was raised. I have a pair of tennis shoes just to wear inside. Now if I can just talk everybody else into parking their shoes.
Great outdoor vintage storage idea :-)
This sort of thing - A box on its side, placed under the trunk near the door instead of the stand it is currently on. With the opening facing the door. In slide the boots & shoes out of sight.

Good idea for back yard toy storage? Along the house? Doubles as seating.
