An Overview On Boot Trays

Keeping your floors clean is about more than aesthetics. It can also help your family stay healthy: dirty shoes can track in irritants that aggravate asthma, and a mucky floor can spread germs to your curious baby’s hands. A boot tray keeps the debris from your shoes in check, and it makes vacuuming and mopping faster and easier.

Simplemost Media

Most boot trays are made of plastics or rubber. They run from small (holding one or two large pairs of boots) to much larger (holding enough shoes for a whole family). You can also use a boot tray to prevent dog food or kitty litter from getting all over the floor.

The right boot tray can keep your floors safe from wear and tear all year round. Our Tips & Advice section has more information about how to choose the best boot tray for your home.

DYWM Fun Fact

There’s no way to know if Nancy Sinatra owned a boot tray, but her song “These Boots Are Made For Walkin” definitely owned the charts. It was a number-one hit across the globe when it was released in 1966. The song’s title was inspired by the film “4 for Texas,” which starred her father, Frank Sinatra.

The song’s video resembled a boot sales commercial, with plenty of boots walkin’ past the camera. Numerous remakes of Sinatra’s ode to independence have climbed the charts since the 60s, and you’ve gotta put all those boots somewhere!

The Boot Tray Buying Guide

  • Before you buy a boot tray, measure the area you want to put it in. It’s also helpful to put your shoes and boots in a row and measure the group’s length and width. This way you’ll buy a boot tray that is small enough to fit comfortably by your entryway and large enough to accommodate all of your shoes. 
  • Consider the size of your family before you select your boot tray. If you’re flying solo, you can get away with a small boot tray. A couple with children will need a much longer boot tray for shoes of all sizes.
  • Most boot trays will rinse clean with a few sprays of water. For tougher stains, spray a household cleaner or some white vinegar on your boot tray and wipe it clean.
  • Boot trays go a long way towards keeping your home neat, but they’re not always fun to look at. For extra style points, invest in a tray with a fun design or upgrade your boot tray by covering it with an inch or two of decorative river rocks.
