Small closets and large shoe collections can be an issue for many. 
If you share this client’s problem, consider any wall space as potential storage. 
In this photo, we had a 5” inset from the door to the wall so we installed 8” deep shelving (from IKEA). 

Choose shelving that mounts on side brackets so there are no brackets under the shelves to interfere with the shoe storage. 
We used a pre-existing shoe rack below to double the storage space.  

Putting flats on the rack & heels on the shelves minimized the footprint allowing easy access to the rest of her closet.
