Our system works fabulously! When we come home we kick our shoes off wherever. When we go to leave we curse ourselves for being so lazy and hunt all over the house for our shoes.
My son has two pairs of Robeez. I haven't seen them actually paired together since I took them out of the package! Okay, you gotta cut us a little slack as we've been moving and in temp housing and moving for the past 6 months, we still have boxes everywhere.
Actually I mostly try to keep them in the front closet. We also don't have many. Today I kicked my shoes off by the door and a few minutes later wanted to go get the mail and went back to put them on to find they were GONE! DD had put them in the closet for me. I think she's really turning into her father now!
