I've purchased three of the Essential Home boot trays, two for my house and, most recently, one for my mother. These are handy and inexpensive products that serve multiple purposes. We keep one by the front door and place wet or muddy shoes and boots on it. The tray will hold two pairs of adult shoes without a problem. Another tray, by the back door, can hold shoes or sometimes a plant that's just been watered or brought in from the deck on a chilly night. I purchased the one for my mother so that she can place her cat's food dish on it and avoid spills that would make her floor or carpet greasy if she doesn't see the bites of food right away and pick them up.
