If you have many pumps with heels over 2" this is a very frustrating shoe rack. All my pumps are between 3 & 4 inches high. It's not a coincidence that in all the online photos the rack will not show heels in front of the other. If you have high heels, the heel of the shoes you have in the front will lie right on top of the toes of the shoe behind it and scuff and stain them. You have to line up the shoes so that they are not right behind each other, meaning you have to skip the middle section entirely or pace the shoes in a zig zag fashion. This means that instead of 9 pairs of shoes you'll probably be able to get away with placing only 6 pairs to avoid scuffing and damaging shoes. Also be careful with the last row of the rack because if you slide the rack forward and back the heels will get hit with the back metal bar and could scuff or damage the heel. It's just not very high heel friendly.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Hawksnst Amazing-my closet got bigger and mornings faster!
I was pretty skeptical of the elfa closet system at first. In fact, I was a little skeptical of an idea of a store that sells stuff to keep our stuff in...felt like it was a little too much consumerism.
Once I went in and took a look at the elfa systems, I was all in. The quality of all of the products are top notch. The salesperson even gave me some ideas about how to mix in pieces meant for other uses into my master closet that would provide great options. I could not be happier. And when they tell you that installation is easy--it really is. I had my husband help me line up and anchor the top pieces, and I did the rest. It was actually a fun project.
I looked at closet systems that would have cost a couple thousand dollars more. This looks great, has a number of finish options and does the job. And the components are really high quality. What more could you ask for? I'm totally sold.
In particular, the Gliding Shoe Racks are a dream. Initially, I thought I'd go cheap to start with and add them in later. But I am SO GLAD I built them in to the system quickly. They were easy to install, and they really hold the shoes securely.
Leave a little extra space between shoe racks if you happen to have exceptionally tall shoes, otherwise the upper shelf can bump the shoes on the shelf below it. Or just put your tallest shoes on the top shelf.
Now that I'm not digging under beds for shoes, or searching the bottom of the closet under hanging clothes, I've actually gained a few extra precious moments of my mornings. And my once-cramped closet now has room to spare!
Here's a little extra endorsement. I bought a lot of pieces. The only piece that came in with a little concealed damage was one of the shoe racks. I contacted customer service through their convenient chat option, and explained that the store is a little far away from me. They immediately offered to replace the defective item, sight unseen, delivered right to me. That kind of service just is so rare today.
There are very few brands out there that manage to inspire the kind of loyalty that Elfa and the Container Store are doing. They also do something called conscious capitalism, which means they give back to the communities where they have stores. They gave to a number of charities in the area here, and that makes me feel even better about my purchase.
I'm a fan for life. Thanks for reading!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Shoegurl Great rack has limitation however
I designed a shoe closet using elfa, I needed to store 300 + pair of shoes in a not so large closet. The concept of being able to store 9 pair of shoes on one rack was an attractive idea, thus leading me to purchase these racks. Once i started loading the racks, I noticed that the heels from the shoes in the front 2 rows are digging into the toes of the shoes behind them. That's a major no-no. The shoes on this rack should NOT have a heel high taller than 3.5 inches or you will encounter problems. The bulk of my shoes are over 4 inches, the container store gladly accepted the racks back ( I kept 3 of the 6 I purchased)
