8-Pair Shoe & Purse Organizer


Product Information

Our 8-Pair Shoe Organizer is an updated organization classic with generously sized compartments to accommodate women's large fashion footwear, men's shoes, and smaller handbags and clutches. When used vertically, the cubbies can accommodate 8-1/2" x 11" paper - ideal for the office. Slotted edges keep the dividers in place so that the unit can be positioned vertically or horizontally to maximize your space. Multiples can be stacked or placed side-by-side. It has the same footprint as our 12-Pair Shoe Organizer and can be stacked or used side-by-side with it as well.

  • Sturdy particle board and laminate construction
  • Accommodates 8-1/2" x 11" paper
  • Light assembly required; all hardware included
  • Each compartment is 8-15/16" w x 11" d x 5-1/2" h.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lacking Quality The quality of these is lacking, especially for the cost. The assembly instructions are simple, but it ended up taking way more effort than it should have to get everything to stay in place. One of the dowels (used for connecting multiple units) ripped through the edge of a shelf, the nails are too short to get a proper grip on them for hammering, and the back panels popped off several times before I finally decided to use my own (longer) nails. However, these were the perfect size and look great in my closet, but not exactly worth the trouble. I'm sure a better product could be found elsewhere for the same purpose.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So Disappointed First off, I have put together a LOT of self assemble furniture. This was difficult to put together considering what it is. Cheap screws, holes were not drilled properly so I ended up with a really crooked end result. To add insult to injury, the middle piece was finished on the wrong side. Would return if I lived close to the store I purchased from. Save your money, definitely not worth the $40.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps us organized We have one in our camper. They are great for keeping shoes organized and our limited floor space clear of clutter. In fact we loved it so much we bought one for our townhome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Shoe Storage I’ve been on the hunt for shoe storage that not only holds my heels and booties but also my fiancé’s shoes as well. Luckily, I found these and they work perfect in our smaller walk-in closet. They were easy to build and fast too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor quality control I purchased two of these shoe shelves. Neither was perfect. The first one I constructed ended up with the tall middle chelf being curved because lengths weren't quite right. On the second, the slots for the shelves were cut wrong so that I wasn't unable to assemble the piece with all the finished sides showing. On top of that, the pilot holes for the screws were off and the screw went through the side of the piece. Overall just disappointed with these, but I guess I got what I paid for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps Us Organized I love this shoe organizer. I have bought 3 of them. One for me, one for my son and one for the front closet. It's a life saver. No more tripping over shoes. Thank you

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Now I can see my closet floor! These cubbies do the trick: no more shoe pile on the closet floor. I tip this 8-hole unit on its side so that one pair of shoes or ankle boots can fit flat on each shelf. I have paired this one with the 12-unit, and love the combo. 20 pairs of shoes are now invisible from outside the closet. People who complain about the quality need to think about the price. Yes, the units are a little wobbly—so don't sit on them—and the particleboard is crumbly if you don't get the screws in right the first time. But for the price, they are quite serviceable. Speaking of screws, I had to borrow an electric screwdriver to get them all the way in, but that means they are tight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 8-pair shoe organizer I am very glad I got this 8-pair shoe organizer. I had a carpenter making one prior to that. He did not make it the way I wanted and I had to paint it. I was happy to find this organizer at the Container Store. They put it together for me and called me to pick it up the next day. I plan to get another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent shoe storage option I purchased one of the 8-pair organizers along with one of the 12 pair organizers. I use the 8 pair for my larger shoes. The cubbies are spacious enough for even my size 11, steel-toed work boots! The maple finish is a nice warm color, and assembly was simple and quick. They're nice and heavy. One of the packages arrived open, but was still intact. There were some blemishes on the edges/finish, but given that these are going in my closet, I'm not too concerned about that. Overall, I'm very happy with this organizer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for more than shoes! I actually bought the shoe organizer for my sewing room/office. It's the perfect size for folded fabric and other smaller items I want to keep handy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for more than just shoes! I have purchased the 8-Section organizer for all of our closets, and used it to organize shoes, clutches etc. I have also seen them used in classrooms to corral lunch bags, books, etc. The depth of the unit and ability to be positioned vertically or horizontally allows for a lot of flexibility. We did not encounter issues with the back coming off or dividers coming out and found it to be sturdy. The slots are wide enough to accommodate men’s 11EE shoes in the boxes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality I purchased 5 of the 12 cubes for my sandals and lower heels. I purchased 2 of the 8 cubes for my high wedges and my Sketcher Shape Ups. They fix perfect in the 8 cubes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect This shoe cubby was perfect for a narrow space. We turned it so that it was narrower and taller. We set a second cubby on top of it. We didn't put the back on, as it is just cheap cardboard, but we didn't need to. Looks good and fits in a space that no other cubby on-line could. Even my husband's shoes fit, although we had to put one pointing in and one pointing out. But that's how we store our shoes anyway so you can see both the front and the back of the shoe. Very happy

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mission accomplished My closet did not have shelves, so I had to Improvise on organizing my plethora of heels. The shelves are a perfect size for your 5/6 inch heels, and stack nicely on top of each other.. You are dealing with partial board so please be careful when assembling and transporting. The product met my expectations. Mission accomplished!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Space Saver This is the greatest closet organizer I have ever purchased. So easy to put together. I bought the 8 & 12 cube plus the boot rack. My closet looks so much better. Also, I have this 8 pair one sitting out in my room w purses and my most often used shoes. Sat a few pictures on top of it and it looks fabulous while keeping things off the floor!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good customer service The package I purchased in store was missing a key piece (3-slot shelf) that made the product impossible to use -- junk. I made a single phone call to the store and spoke with a salesperson who made it good, no questions asked. She shipped a new package -- not just the missing part -- free of charge and it arrived within three days. Still a great inconvenience not having the shoe organizer when I needed it to complete my closet rebuild, but a more than satisfactory response from the store. Good job, and thanks for helping to restore my faith in retail!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from just what my closet needed! my condo has a tiny closet and I didn't have enough floor space for all of my shoes (I have maybe 30 pairs of shoes... it's a tiny closet). I got this and have been able to easily locate the pair of shoes I'm looking for which saves me time (and sanity) every morning. I paired it with the plastic shoe boxes and labels so everything is up to my OCD needs. It is slightly flimsy (rocks a bit), but once I used the little sticks that were included, I was able to attach it to a second one which handled the problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Space saver Bought 2 of these and stacked them in the wasted space behind my bedroom door. I use them for the shoes I wear often so they're accessible without being all over the floor. I was unhappy that, according to the instructions, if I wanted to stack them they were supposed to be turned on they're side. I didn't do that, but kept the screw caps off and stacked them as pictured. Otherwise, they were exactly what I needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A home for my shoes We have downsized from a large house to a 2 bedroom apartment and we were overrun by shoes. I bought 3 of these for my shoes...2 are the 8 pair shoe organizers and one is the 12 pair. My heels, my sneakers, my flats, my Ugg slippers all fit beautifully. They stack, they look reasonably attractive and fit well in the designated corner. Putting them together was more of a geometric exercise than anything difficult. Once we got the rhythm of putting the pieces together it was not hard. It was helpful to use a battery operated screwdriver.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very difficult to put together i bought 7 of these and 5 of these needed an electric drill to drill the screw holes deeper in order to put together. If you have one, great - i did not. the backs are sometimes to small to fit over the opening and try to put in the nails that are too short for most people to hold and nail in. i needed the shoe storage so kept going but they could really use some quality assurance in making these.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Low quality and impossible assembly When I took it out of the box I was immediately worried, as the pieces looked to be of shoddy quality. I suppose I shouldn't have been surprised given the price. Even worse, when I tried to assemble it, the screws did not fit all the way in, which left assembly impossible. The instructions say you need only a screwdriver but I would not attempt this without a power drill. And even then, I'm not sure that the screws would fit. I'll be returning this after much frustration trying to assemble. Pay for something nicer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for mens shoes When sitting vertically, mens shoes fit perfectly. Purchased 8-Pair organizer. Note that the Parts and hardware part of the Assembly Instructions say that you should have two, 3-slot dividers. It comes with one, but that is all you need so don't be alarmed that you are missing a piece.

Bins or baskets?

Do you have bins or baskets that fit these cubbies?
Asked by: Summner
These are very small cubbies with 1/4 flimsy dividers, and not meant for baskets. One shoe, two small ones or other small items.

Can I stack these organizer vertically?

Asked by: TalyaAn
Yes. The dowels only fit for stacking the other way, but we stacked them vertically without dowels and they work just fine. They are heavy enough that they won't shift, but I suppose you could put a small screw in them if you really wanted.
