Walnut 3-Tier Grippy Shoe Rack
The walnut shoe rack was easy to assemble and seems pretty sturdy. It does hold quite a bit of shoes and everythinig is neat.

Not for small feet!
This shoe rack is super easy to put together--I did it by myself, in no time at all! I love the way it looks, and it expands to hold a large number of shoes.
I only have one problem with it, which makes it nearly unusable--I wear size 6.5 women's shoes, and if I don't place my shoes carefully on the rack, they fall through the grippy parts. Great if you have larger feet, but I don't.

Nice look, but not for average or small feet!
This rack looks nice and was easy to put together. However, I was shocked when I started placing my shoes on it, and they won't stay! The top and bottom rods are TOO FAR APART. I wear a 7.5, which is pretty average, so this is strange to me. The only way my shoes will stay on this is by resting the outside back of the heel on the top rod. I'm not sure if this is a good solution.

Not perfect, but very good.
This thing looks WAY better than any shoe rack I have ever owned, and it fits right in to almost any decor, because of the wood sides and black cross bars. The "grippy" bars are fantastic. They're not something you NEED in a shoe rack, but definitely add to the functionality of the rack. Also, the fact that the bars are adjustable really adds to the value of this rack. You can collapse it, or expand it based on your needs.
The setup was very straight forward and not too much for one person, but it would be easier with two. My (few) complaints are that it is somewhat difficult to adjust with one person, if there are shoes on the rack and it would be much more sturdy with beefier side supports, or a support in the middle. This isn't a big deal, but with 15+ heavy shoes, both of those issues could be of a concern to some prospective buyers. That said, I would absolutely buy this rack again and I HAVE recommended it to friends.
