Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great way to store shoes! I just moved into a new house and I haven't even unpacked, but I knew that I NEEDED these shoe organizers and I couldn't wait to get them set up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best storage items, ever! First, we bought five. Then we bought three more. As they were put in place and filled with shoes, we realized how very neat all of our shoes were stored and easily identified for choice. The white is very crisp and clean. How did we live without them?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from High heels don't fit! This piece was very difficult to assemble. The screws are too long for the pre-drilled holes. You get them about 3/4s of the way in and you have to use all your might to get them flush. I ended up using shorter screws that I had for the last few holes. Once assembled, I starting putting shoes in and realized none of my high heels fit. I'm a size 9/9.5 and only have about 3 inches heels. So, great for flats but that's about it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Been eyeing this for some time .. Disappointed I have been eyeing this storage option for a while and finally just received as a gift to get me started on really organizing my closet. The cubby holes are entirely too small (and I have small feet). My heels do not fit and that is mostly what my shoe collection consists of. This storage is a better fit for children, women who don’t wear heels and handbags (like mostly shown in the pictures).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job! I bought two and stacked them vertically to fit into a narrow space in my front coat closet. Assembly was easy although I made the frame first, then slid the larger shelf pieces in, followed by the three smaller shelf pieces. If you have a power drill this can all take no more than 10 min. The kit includes screw covers (which I found useless) and wooden dowels to secure the units should you decide to stack them. However they are too wide for the pre-cut holes. Maybe with a hammer or mallet you can make it work but I just stacked mine without it. I’ll be looking for something else to stick in there to secure the units. Overall not bad for the value and style. I did get it then on sale during Black Friday so I’m pretty happy about that price point.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from USELESS! I don't know if you can not give any stars, so I gave one--and this doesn't even rate a single star. None of my shoes fit in this misnamed 12-Pair Shoe Organizer. I needed a good shoe storage solution, had a 30% off coupon, and after reviewing the options, choose this one. I should have looked more closely at the measurements. It isn't high enough for heels or wedges, and my 9M shoes don't both fit in one cubby. No wonder they show purses in most of the cubbies in your pictures. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone unless they have extremely small and narrow feet--might be good for a toddler! My husband kindly put it together before I saw it, and now I don't know how to return it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good storage option; but doesn't properly stack This was the best shoe storage option I can find - and I bought 2 to stack up. However, the dowels do not even come close to fitting in the holes provided so unfortunately I cannot stack them. I will need to find another way to make it work. This seems like a very large mistake for a product that is supposed to be stackable. Quality is also just okay - I split some of the wood when nailing the back piece on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality I ordered 5 of the 12 cubes and 2 of the 8 cubes. They fit perfect in my closet. Stack up nicely. I am able to double up some of my sandals and my heels fix perfectly
Date published: 2017-09-10
Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's just okay I got two of these and they're great for flats, sandals, and lowtop sneakers. I do not understand how they got heels to fit in the one pictured. I could not get mine into the cubby. They're not as tall as they try to make it seem.
Date published: 2017-09-04
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very small compartments You have to put this together which is not too difficult (my husband did it for me). The back of the unit is just cardboard. And the tabs that go over the screws are white and do not match the natural color. I wear a size 7 shoe and could barely fit one pair of shoes in the compartments. The photo is misleading since it shows shoes next to each other (I had to put mine back to back to make them fit). It works ok for fit flops or smaller flats but not for any shoes that are wider or heels.
Date published: 2017-07-31
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only one complaint I love this except for one thing. The screw covers are white, which looks tacky. Would look much better with natural covers to match the wood.
Date published: 2017-06-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compared to other shoe organizers, has nice sturdy quality to it, very easy to put together. Great to have the option to stack or not - if you don't stack, they are strong and can store some lighter stuff (e.g. more shoes) on top which is great) Ordered a couple of these for storage - not a 5 star since some of them did not come with all of the screw cover tops while others came with extra.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs improvements I purchased three of these in natural color. I planned to stack them on top of each other. I think this product is overpriced for what you get and the quality, and could use some improvements: 1) the screw covers are white, and look bad. I'm sure they look great on the white versions of this product. Why not make natural colored covers for the natural colored units? 2) once loaded with shoes, the grid middle portions of each of the units starts to sag. There is too much play/wiggle of the center sections within the outer boards/sides, and nothing to secure or prevent this sagging, so it does not look 'neat' or 'nice' at all. Each of the three units does this with one shoe in each slot only. 3) staking these units on top of each other laying each lengthwise does not work. That is because for some reason the short boards on the ends protrude just beyond the long boards - in other words, the shape of the units is not a rectangle, but has very slightly longer end boards. Stacking them as I planned causes the long boards to sag in addition to the center boards. And, one does need to stack these lengthwise so that two pairs of shoes may be placed side by side (one shoe in each box) vs. one on top of each other due to the 4 x 3 configuration. 4) this is all made of the pressed sawdust type wood with a laminated vinyl veneer, except the backing, which is thin cardboard.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made I bought this organizer to store my husband's and my running shoes. It was easy to assemble and easily holds adult running shoes. I turned it on its side to fit in a tight space in our closet; perfect!
Date published: 2016-09-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Organizer I will start off by saying that this is a nice shoe organizer, that I found very easy to put together. The assembly was quick, and I was able to begin organizing my shoes right after. One tip: When you are putting the rack together, there is a "finished side" and an "unfinished side" to the pieces. I didn't realize this on the first rack I put together, so I had to un-screw some of the pieces and flip them around Not a big deal, I just wasn't paying attention. Also, if you have a battery-powered drill with a phillips head screwdriver bit, it makes assembly *way* easier and faster! In regards to the rack itself: While it serves it's purpose, ladies like myself that own high heels, stilettoes and/or heels with platforms, need to be aware that some of your shoes may not fit into the bins at all, or if they do, it will take some finagling to get them in there. If the bins were but a touch bigger (height and width), things would fit much better. But, for the price, they definitely serve their purpose and clean up the bottom of your closet in no time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great space saver Looks great, easy assembly, and organizes several pairs of shoes that you can see at a glance. For larger shoes I ordered the 8 pair version. These are more sturdy than the 2 tier shelve rack without the dividers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 12 Pair Shoe Organizer Just one of the items from the Container Store that I have purchased over the years and have been very happy with the products; however, this item is sturdy and easy to assemble and gives you easy access to your shoes.
Date published: 2016-05-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My shoes have a home! Perfect cubbies for my shoes (size 6). I can also put two pairs of flip flops per section which helps save some space. This fulfills my shoe storage needs and I'm sure others can find a way that this neatly stores their shoes.
Date published: 2016-05-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decluttering the Entrance This organizer was very easy to install (my 9 year old helped) and fits turned 90 degrees into a corner behind the backdoor, where my kids used to put their shoes on a 4-tiered wrought iron rack. The kids can better organize each pair of shoes in a cubby vs. piling them in a heap in one area of the rack. It gives that area a more organized look and feel. The only thing I had issue with were the tiny nails for the cardboard back. i bent at least 2 on each organizer and had to rummage in the tool chest for more nails.
Date published: 2016-05-05
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cheaply made I was super excited to buy this product and then my boyfriend started putting it together, when the wood started splitting and not enough pieces came with it to hold it together. It felt very cheaply made, but we somehow made it hold together, so hopefully it stays that way. I wouldn't buy this product again, I would get an already assembled shoe rack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Organization Heaven I bought several 12-pair and 6-pair cubbies to turn a double closet into a shoe haven. It worked out brilliantly!
Date published: 2016-04-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! I tried every single cheaper way to keep my shoes organized, and probably spent more in total than if I had just purchased these organizers to begin with. They were simple to put together & they won't collapse in a month like their cardboard alternatives.
Date published: 2016-04-10
Rated 3 out of 5 by from get the 8 cube organizer, not this one! This shoe rack is ok for very small, low heel, non-clunky shoes... which realistically that description fits most shoes. I have tried countless shoe racks & organizers through the years & have come to the conclusion most must be designed by people who only wear flip flops. I do believe my search has finally ended, this rack is "ok", but the 8 cube one will be absolutely perfect. Shoes that dont in this cubbie include: higher heels, fatter heels, wedges, tennis shoes, larger mens shoes... pretty much most shoes wont fit, please don't waste your money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean, compact, shoe organizer great for closets, etc. I bought two and had them side by side on the floor. the top makes it's own little shelf you can put things on too. the compartments are large enough to put 2 pairs of flats into.
Date published: 2016-02-08
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Many shoes are too high and too wide to fit! I did not find this piece difficult to put together. I thought it was well made for the price. I bought four of these online thinking that I could throw out all my shoe boxes and could finally see my shoes. My biggest complaint is that the cubby spaces are TOO SMALL for many of my shoes. Some heels are too high to fit, and other shoes do not fit side by side. And you can forget about ever getting two sneakers in one cubby. That will never happen. Had the cubbies been another 3/4 inch wide, it would have been a big improvement. Now I can only store my smaller shoes in this container and still have to keep the shoes boxes for all the others.

I see that the 8-Pair Shoe Organizer is stackable horizontally or vertically. Is the same true for the 12-pair version?

Asked by: nesting81
Yes, it works great! You just can't use the pre-drilled holes and dowel if you want to stack it vertically, but it's heavy enough and sturdy enough up against a wall to be stacked.
