1. She puts her shoes on the rack. 2. She puts her shoes into the rack. 3. She puts her shoes in the rack. Thanks.
I mostly agree. While all three have slightly different meanings, they all can be used depending on the nature of the rack and where you place the shoes.
I don't entirely agree with Peter about #1. To me, "on the rack" does not imply the rack has only one level. Rather, it only tells us the shoes were placed on the top level -- the rack could have any number of levels.

Yes, I agree. All three of these prepositions could be used in this sentence, and which were logical would depend on the physical appearance/construction of the rack in question.
2. and 3. are interchangeable, whereas 1. implies that the rack is a type which has only one level – a top.
