One of the things about shelving and displaying shoes is the problem with space. As we all know, it is important to a customer that you display the shoes in a prominent place, allowing customers to take a closer look at the shoes. Shoe purchasing is an extremely personal thing. Customers need to touch it and try it on. Suffice to say, not many customers will buy shoes that they are not permitted to touch and feel.
Wall-mounted display. Most shoe retail outlets opt for wall-mounted display panels. There is a real good reason for that…for example, wall-mounted display allows them to remove the shoes easily from the shelves and try them on. Most wall-mounted display units come with accessories for hanging of clothes, displaying of garments, toys and allows for proper display. Before buying any wall-mounted display shelving, always ensure that the supplier has ample supply of these accessories. You don’t want to find that the accessories are no longer in the market some years down the road…what would you do with the wall-mounted display then?
Glass panels for shoes? It might not be a very conventional way to display shoes but you will be surprised with how effective it is to use glass display units for shoes. The advantage of using glass shelving units is that you can play with proper lighting and create a very unique effect on the products which, in the end, may compel customers to make their decisions on the spot.
Using wooden racks. Surprisingly, using wood storage racks gives shoes on sale a very Gothic, comfortable or ancient feel. It all depends on the image of your store and what you wish to project onto your customers. The most important thing is that if you are using wooden racks, be sure that it blends in with the rest of the store’s design. You don’t want the shelves to stick out like a sore thumb.
