Natural 3-Tier Grippy Shoe Rack
First the good - I just bought this product (3 of them actually - I have a ton of shoes). I like the concept, I can make it smaller if I don't have a lot of shoes to put on it, and it's around 4 feet long when fully expanded. The no slip-grip on the bars seemed to do a good job of holding my shoes in place. And it seemed like it was a little wobbly, but it is holding my rain boots and Uggs on its top shelf. It was also easy to set up. Each one took me no more than 5 minutes.
The bad - It seems cheaply made. When I was screwing in the screw, one of the pieces of the plastic knob came right off in my hand while I was tightening it. I'm strong but not that strong! I also noticed that when I put it together and tried to extend the bars, a few of them were stuck. When I pulled the wooden ends apart to extend the bars, they came loose but then some of the rubber ripped off. Like the extending part was stuck in the bar for too long... When I went to move them, the screws also came loose. When I tried to extend them, I just pulled until the small bars came completely apart from the bigger ones. There is no catch to make sure you don't over extend them, so then you have to try and put all 6 back in by lining them up (not easy with the no slip rubber) and pushing. Like I said, the idea is great, and if it was well-made it would have been worth the $30 per rack, but I'm sure you could find something similar elsewhere for half the price.

Just what I was looking for!
Perfect! Easy to put together. Shoes stay on rack and the rack expands out really long.

Great shoe rack
This shoe rack was so easy to put together. There are no tools needed. I love that it can bigger or smaller based on where you need to put it.
