Now, in the Spring/Summer, we are putting our shoes & sandals in the pockets:
This "pocket system" works very well for smaller shoes, like our toddlers' and 10 year old's shoes. Not so well with my husbands big tennis shoes. Those are in a laundry basket in our bedroom.
This system is really working for our family. When I ask the twins to "put their shoes in the pockets" they do. When our 10-year old asks "Where are my shoes?" I have to remind him about the hanging pockets... I'm pretty sure he'll catch on, one of these days.
