30-Pair Shoe Rack
I'm giving this 3 stars because it has lasted me a long time, about 2 years. Well, that isn't super long. If you are using this for light shoes like flip flops, or not a lot of pairs, you should be ok. But it collapsed the second I started to use it for heavier shoes like my running shoes or hiking shoes. Its pretty wobbly as well. I'll opt for a different model this time.

This shoe rack fell in one swoop. I should've just bought the heavier, more expensive rack in the first place! What a waste of money. Very poor construction with flimsy plastic sides and ill fitting metal rods, will not stay stable for long. Do not buy this!

Not a good buy!
I had this exact shoe rack & the lower left rod broke & shoes went all over my closet. Ordered this one online not knowing it was the same one. Started putting the new one together & it was crooked. Returned it to the store!

Don't know why they even sell this
This is a terrible product. Last time I was in the store I noticed that the rungs had even fallen out there! They fall out all. the. time. I used to arrive home to a pile of shoes on the floor. I eventually gave up and I use something else. I tried to repurpose this for ribbon, but then I arrived home to a pile of ribbon on the floor. Into the trash

I had a relatively easy time assembling this by myself so I not sure what other people who had trouble are talking about. It's lightweight and thin so works well in my small apartment and does the job.

strength of Samson,patience of Job
This is a NIGHTMARE to put together. Maybe if I were a bodybuilder and also a saint it would be easier. The pieces are hard to put together. As soon as one pops in, another pops out. It is like the worst game of whack-a-mole ever.
I LOVE the container store, but this thing stinks!!!!

Not a good product
I have been buying things from the Container Store for years, but this is by far the most inferior product I've ever purchased. It doesn't stay together even if assembled per the Instructions. I would not recommend purchasing this product.

I wish I could give 0 stars.
This shoe rack has fallen apart a dozen and a half times. The rack is constantly tilting to one side or the other. It's like the leaning tower of Pisa. It looks terrible after all of the attempts to reassemble. And now, I just have it taking up space because every time I attempt to remove shoes from this device it's like a terrible game of Jenga - one wrong move and the whole thing collapses into rubble. So my solution has been to have my shoes all over the floor which is the opposite of why I spent so much on a shoe rack in the first place. It was a TOTAL WASTE of money. So bummed out. I usually have an AMAZING experience with Container Store Products. I would march in the Container Store parade. :) But this product was simply not up to the standards I've come to know and expect.

30 Pair Shoe Rack
Love the rack. All my shoes in one - easy-to-find location. Fairly easy to put together. Well worth the $30

I had a hard time putting this together - the rods don't 'snap' into place or anything, they just shove in and are only a just long enough to fit through to both sides, so within an hour of putting my shoes in the rods started to fall out. They are just not long enough. After 3 days the whole thing was pretty much collapsed. Will be returning this and do not recommend.

I have an awkward space in my closet and entirely too many shoes. I searched high and low for a shoe rack that would fit the space to no avail. That is until I went to the Container Store and found this one. It is small and light weight and fits just right! I am so excited and my closet is so much more organized!

Best Shoe Rack
I have been utilizing shoe racks for ages and always struggle to find a sturdy rack that also holds a lot of shoes. I now have to look no further. The rack was relatively easy to put together. It is loaded with my shoes and has given me no problems. I am thinking of adding another one to complete my "walk-in shoe closet"

It's okay, could be better but not bad.
While it is kind of wobbly and you really do need to have it up against the wall to stabilize it a bit, it has never fallen over in the years I've owned it and I've gotten used to the wobble knowing that it's not going to fall. It's served it's purpose just fine but I would be surprised to find anyone who could fit 30 pairs of shoes on it. I can fit two pairs plus one single shoe on each shelf (women's shoes).

Simple, sleek & stylish
This was super easy to put together and works great in my closet. I've moved several times, had closets of all sizes and used just about every type of shoe storage there is on the market. This rack is by far my favorite. As a matter of fact, I went back and bought two more racks.
I can see all my shoes, access them easily and don't have to worry about them being damaged or scuffed from rubbing against each other--like in those cubbies I've used before.
I was hesitant that the racks wouldn't hold my wedges properly and securely, but they do. Also, this rack doesn't take up as much space as you would expect.
I highly recommend it to anyone looking for easy, convenient shoe display & storage.

Really good buy
This shoe rack is great,yes it is plastic and not super sturdy but it is only 30.00.It is high in a closet and takes very little space ,works just great for us.It would not hold 30 pair of men's shoes ,but would women's shoes and most men wouldn't have 30 pair of shoes.If you are looking for a rack for shoes in the closet ,it is the best,and easy to clean under it.

Now worth much
It Doesn't hold the Number of shoes it states. Very unsteady. Needs to be on corner wall to add stability. Very poor quality.

Ok, but not for the price
The shoe rack is very wobbly even with shoes on it, it will have to be secured to a wall. I bought this shoe rack for my husband's shoes, and it does not fit 30 pairs of men's shoes on it, more like 18. If I had to buy it again, I would not have paid $30 for it, maybe more like $15.

i boght this shoe racklast year, assembly was a little tricky but no big deal, was gone for several months and returned to find it had collapsed, the plastic rods were bent out of shape, was able to salvage 3/4 of it with crazy glue. hope it holds

I like this product because of it's flexibility. When I moved I didn't have the height in my new closet to fit it, but no problem- just take out a few and voila- it fit.
While it's plastic, I've found it to be very durable and to last a long time (I've now had mine for years).
The only time I have had trouble with the rack not staying together is when I"m physically moving it from one location to another. Otherwise it holds together fine.

Great idea....horrible product. No amount of hammering, with their special mallet or not, will make the metal tubes fit into the plastic holes. I have assembled and reassembled this rack three times after it fell apart each time. The metal tubes will just fall out when no one is near it. I have to lean things up against the sides to keep it from leaning. Shoes have to be removed very tenderly and carefully, and even then, the whole thing starts to fall over. It is a great size, and I wish it were a better product. I also with I had saved the receipt.

Ok but doesn't last long
This rack is not the best if you are looking for something that will last a few years. I bought this rack about a year and a half ago and it broke last night. All through the time I had it one bar or another would fall out. I tried to insert the bars the best I could but I guess it wasn't tight enough. Finally last night it was tilting so badly that it just caved. Next time I plan on purchasing something a little higher quality.

Flimsy and cheap
This shoe rack was difficult to put together, and once I did finally get it together, it seems flimsy and cheap. It is doing its job as of now, but I will not be surprised when I find my shoes in a pile on the floor. It is also really tilted because the bars don't fit in nicely.

It's not too fancy but it does it's job. Easy to assemble and for being made of plastic parts it is very sturdy. Worth the money considering it was in the lower end of the spectrum.

Nice fit into small closet
Easy build. Sturdy. Nice small footprint on floor (pardon the pun).

lots of shoes in a small space
If you assemble using a hammer to insert all pieces securely, the rack is stable and stays together great. It holds a ton of shoes in a small space, I have a reach in closet and have it perpendicular at the end, spanning the depth of the closet so it holds all of my shoes in just 10" of closet length. I bought a second unit and stacked them up to the ceiling, used the higher rungs for hats and handbags. So perfect

Just what the doctor ordered. Standard shelving units were too big and this one fit the bill and held all the shoes for the season.

This shoe rack is very flimsy and was difficult to assemble. No matter what I do, one of the bars keeps slipping out of its holder, making that shelf unusable. Also, I don't think my shoes are especially wide, but I can only fit two pairs per shelf and therefore I can only fit 18 shoes on this rack.

Great shoe rack for storage
This was so easy to put together and holds the amount of shoes it notes. My husband was skeptical when we putting it together, thinking it was going to be flimsy and fall apart or topple over once it was full of shoes, but he was pleasantly surprised when the project was done.
It would not hold 30 pairs of men shoes though, being that men shoes are bigger. Just something to keep in mind.

If I could give zero stars, I would. This product was ridiculous to put together and fell apart immediately. My shoes are now in a pile on the floor. This product is made of flimsy plastic and is not worth the price. This item is going straight in the trash.
