8-Pair Shoe Organizer
Good, but needs improvement
A sturdy organizer. Recommendation: please devise a way for the back panel to be attached other than it being nailed on. There's barely any overlap of the back onto the frame, plus the finishing nails are ridiculously tiny and hard to manage. In 2 spots the nails broke through and damaged the interior finish, which is visible when looking into the compartment. With the way the particleboard splintered it wasn't possible to glue the pieces back on without showing it had been damaged, which now looks terrible. Brand new, yet already broken.

Good design, easy to assemble but missing hardware
Overall the 8 slot organizer is a good product as well as the other similar components. It can be assembled quickly and used for either horizontal or vertical storage needs. I have purchased 3 of the 8 slot, 1 of the 6 slot, and 3 of the 2 shelf units over the past 9 months. I would give the products a 5 star rating if the hardware packages consistently contained all of the required items for assembly. The Container Store charges top dollar for these units so they need to improve their quality control on the hardware as missing items is not acceptable.

Best shoe organizer ever...
I purchased four of these shoe organizers and LOVE them. They fit perfectly in our closet and all our shoes fit in them. They make putting shoes away fast and easy and leave our closet looking great! The tops make a great place to put other totes and such for more organization!

Put it together myself
I bought this organizer to hold my shoes beside the toilet (I have to dress in the bathroom). I forgot to measure the deepness of the shoe slots and the organizer fits in the space, but I didn't count on actually putting the shoes in. So... I have moved this to my closet. There is plenty of floor space and it will be easier to coordinate.
The putting together was quite doable. It's the first furniture I've put together ALL by myself and I did it!! I did assemble the main frame on a table as I don't like to bend over or sit on the floor. The only challenge was nailing the back on. The cardboard is cut to the minimum dimensions. I had to glue a few chips back on as I missed,.
I looks great!
