SOLE STACKS - Display and Store Your Shoes with Love

TO ORDER SOLE STACKS VISIT SOLESTACKS.COM 

I started Sole Stacks because of a common problem I share with other sneaker enthusiasts: too many shoes, not enough space. As a full-time footwear designer, I also know first-hand the hard work put into the story, design, and development of a shoe. Reluctant to keep my collection packed away, I wanted to display and store my shoes in a way that was both engaging and space efficient.

Sole Stacks was designed for any size collection in a variety of ways; whether to store your weekly rotation, display your best kicks, display your entire collection, or organize your entryway.

Most shoe racks look like and are designed to be kept in the closet or corner. Sole Stacks is a piece of furniture specialized for shoes, allowing you to keep your shoes in a place most convenient for you.

Sole Stacks is available in 2 heights, 3 outer frame materials, and 6 center shelf materials:

Customize your Sole Stacks in a variety of material combinations:

Stretch Goal: 1 additional color, to be selected by popular vote, will be unlocked when the campaign hits $15,000!

 

All tools necessary included for easy assembly, flat packs for efficient shipping and storage:

All Stacks come with wall mounting hardware:

LED strip lighting available as an add-on:

Cut out for ball placements:

 

Colored Stacks are made from a dyed through-color wood fiber panel with a clear coat finish. The colors are created by an organic dye that impregnates individual fibers and is chemically bonded by resin. The material is an evolution of MDF and is between a wood fiber board and a solid surface:

Maple Stacks are made from 1/2" maple plywood with a protective clear coat finish, which is both extremely strong and lightweight. High grade plywood is often utilized in higher-end flat pack furniture:

All laser cut clear and neon shelves come with an easy peel-off protective film:

All hardware is powder-coated black and all screws and bolts are black oxidized steel:

 

Sole Stacks is proud to work with local CNC and laser cutting shops to produce the parts right here in Boston.

 

 

 

For the past year I've been selling Stacks through SoleStacks.com. Below are some of the photos our customers have sent us.

We've had great feedback and all positive reviews!

 

 We've also had some great unboxings and reviews from mega sneaker heads and Youtubers Mike ( A.K.A Asneakerlife) and Qias Omar (A.K.A. QrewKicks):

Stretch Goal: 1 additional color, to be selected by popular vote, will be unlocked when the campaign hits $15,000!

For an additional $30, add a 12" strip tape LED light to your order. Available in red or blue with an on/off switch:

 

What about International shipping? Because costs vary dramatically based on location, we do not offer direct international shipping. However, we have had customers coordinate with companies like Borderlinx to set up delivery forwarding from the US.

What about the shoe boxes?! Even if you keep a majority of your shoes in the shoe boxes or plastic bins, Sole Stacks is a great way to organize and display your rotation. It's also a good idea to let shoes breathe from time to time to help avoid them from drying out.

What about the plastic drop-front boxes? No hard feelings for the plastic drop-front boxes, but Sole Stacks is more versatile in its use. Sole Stacks was designed as a complimentary piece of furniture and does not have to be hidden away in your closet. Unlike most drop-front boxes, Sole Stacks allow more of your shoes to be seen, and are big enough to accommodate high tops.

What sizes fit? Sole Stacks typically fits up to Mens US size 13. Yes, even high top Kobes fit!

Thank you for taking the time to review the campaign. I hope you consider supporting me in creating something positive for the sneaker community! To stay up-to-date with our progress, make sure to like us at Facebook.com/solestacks and follow us on Instagram, @sole_stacks.

For anyone interested in footwear design, below is some bonus content that we've created within the past year. We interviewed several colleagues to share insight into what it takes to become a footwear designer:
