2-Shelf Shoe Stacker
I realize that this item is inexpensive when compared to other shoe holders, but that is no excuse for the poor quality and workmanship. My wife bought three of these to put in the closet to put her shoes on. None of the edges lined up on any of them and the screw holes were not drilled all of the way through the fiberboard. The screw holes were either drilled with a dull bit or with too much pressure because the back side of the material was cracked around the holes instead of being smoothly drilled all of the way through. If these items were not going to be hidden in a closet I would have returned them. I don't care how inexpensive an article is that is no excuse for poor workmanship or quality.
Having said that, they will do the job and are inexpensive as long as you will accept something that to me looks awful and amateurish.

Perfect for our small walk-in
We previously had adjustable metal shoe racks in our NYC walk-in closet. The shoes never stayed on (especially my husband's) and slid to the floor, making the racks worthless and causing our closet to appear very messy. I purchased four of these shelves (and had them delivered the same day!) and put them together during my daughter's nap. They were really easy to assemble. They Look nice and are really sturdy. The only issue is that some of my very high heels do not fit on the bottom or middle shelf, so they have to go on top. No big deal, but be aware if you want to use them for all 4"+ heels. These shelves made my closet look beautiful and organized.

It's a Shoe Rack
So, it's a shoe rack, and it works as a shoe rack should. It holds shoes. It's sturdy, but I don't see it taking a lot of strain, so I think they'll hold up for at least a few years. Holds about 3 pairs of men's shoes per shelf. I bought 3 shelves, so I get about 7 rows (including the floor), so it holds about 21 pairs of shoes. If you set them out end to end, instead of stacking, you could hold 27 pairs of shoes, because you gain 2 floor "shelves" by doing so, but stacking them makes them more compact, so I'd go with that. And if you have more than 21 pairs of shoes, either you need a bigger closet, or you should buy more of these.
All in all, a good product for holding shoes.

Too short for heels!
I was SO excited to get this home and get my shoes in order. Once assembled, however, it's too short for heels. I mean ANY heels. If you have any high heels over 2 inches, don't bother with this one. The gap between the shelves is only 5" - a key measurement missing from the website. Had this been included, I would not have ordered it.
Also, for some reason the underside of the top shelf is laminated, but not the underside of the bottom shelf. Why?? They are meant to be stackable, so the "bottom" shelf might become the third shelf up, and you would be able to see the unfinished mdf.
