Gunmetal 36-Pair Over the Door Shoe Rack is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 62.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Set-Up, Needs Adjustment for Larger Footwear Overall the set-up for this item was not difficult. However, the hardware screws were easily stripped if you are not careful. The spaces are great if you have small, short, or narrow footwear. There need to be more holes to adjust for boots or larger shoes. You can still utilize the spaces for boots and the like, but you need to fold down the ankle end in order for it to fit. The hardware for the door attachment is not strong and bends too easily. In addition, the attachment hardware barely stabilizes the shoe tree frame. Suggest that design adjustments be forthcoming for a wider shoe audience with a variety of shoe wear.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't Hold Shoes (it's single purpose) I bought this last week thinking this would be a great discrete place to put my wife's and my shoes. It was easy to install and then I started to store some of my shoes on it. Immediately, you could see the heels hung off quite a bit, and the shoes didn't feel stable at all. After closing the door, you could just hear a bunch of pair of shoes falling off the hanger. After trying this a couple times, you could tell that this is not going to work as intended. It definitely needs to be a little deeper to hold the shoes... I wish this wasn't the case. I really wanted to like this thing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality I bought this rack earlier today. First off it was difficult to put together by myself. Second off, it’s not deep enough for some of my shoes (mostly my heels) so that defeated the purposes of getting a 36 shoe rack. Thirdly, after putting it together and placing my shoes on it (maybe 25 pairs, a mix of sandals and sneakers), it starts falling apart about 2 hours later!!!! I try to close my door and the brackets to hang it on my door have completely bent and closing the door has now pushed the rack off my door and my shoes are now in a pile on my floor. Now I am taking it apart and desperately trying to shove it back in the box to return it tomorrow. So disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good DIY Project Over the door is a great place to store shoes--handy, neat, and not a tripping hazard! Test fit for width to avoid interfering with door handle and to minimize awkward placement if door surface not smooth, e.g., paneled, etc. MAKE SURE LADDER/STEPSTOOL IS SAFE! Verify all pieces present and read instructions several times before starting. Keep instructions handy at all times--many parts and some look very similar! Assemble snugly but leave a bit loose to allow for any "wiggle to fit" instances. When completed, fasten rack to door with over and under the door clips. Project can be done by one, but a helper is useful when attaching over and under door clips. Tighten all screws for security. NOTE: Attach Allen wrench to rack in case it's needed later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shoe Rack The shoe rack is performing perfectly...My wife has 36 pairs of shoes on the rack and it doesn't move at all...The key is to screw in the top and bottom hooks to the door...The hooks were never designed to hold a full rack of shoes by themselves...:)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great In Concept If you are going to mount this to the door or wall, it will hold a fair amount of shoes (which is good for me). If you are not willing to put holes in your door it will go over the door but BARELY. I couldn't shut my closet door after installing but worth it because my shoes were stored. After about 6 months the clips on the top failed and the whole thing collapsed. CS was great about taking it back but now I'm struggling to find a good solution for all my shoes!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made but could use a little tweaking We mounted this to the wall. The product is well made and suits my needs very well- however I wear a size 7 shoe and all of the shoes fit well, except for my demi boots, bulky shoes and high heels with standing ankle straps. Those took some thought. I ended up using the of top rack and hanging the boots backwards, by their heels. If you have space above you can put the demi boots on top, but I have a shelf in the way. This works well but made me which made me lose the row below for storage. 3 boots = 6 spots. The ankle strap heels I tipped to put in and will tilt to take out, but that may bean moving at least 1 additional shoe at times. Being a size 7 all of my shoes fit and I would like to get this rack for my husband's closet...but I am not sure his size 12 shoes will fit. I will experiment with mine before I buy...but I would love a bigger and wider version that holds less but give a bit more space between the rows for

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Try this door mounting technique The door mounting brackets are a known weakness so I decided not to use them. Since most interior doors are hollow I added 1x6 strips to the top and bottom of the door to provide a solid base for the rack. The 1x6 strips provide an added bonus that they further space the rack from the door which helps with larger shoes (shoes in photos are womens 9-9.5).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could Be Great I believe this could've been a great shoe rack but my door is too tall for it; the under the door hook was 7 or 8 inches from the bottom of the door. I didn't even bother putting the whole thing together because I know it'd be hitting the back of the door without it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful and well built Holds a large amount of shoes and saves a lot of space as it hangs on the door. High shoes push the shoes on top of them (the upper step) but we found arrangement that solved the issue for most shoes. The connecting straps to the bottom of the door are too short (at least in our case) but we improvised an extension that solved this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless unless you wear a size 2 shoe The shoes don't stay on the rack - I wear a size 9 1/2. They are not even half way on the rack. You will need to hang it on the front of your door, if you hang it on the back of your door, your door won't open all the way.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Meh It looks nice but broke after a week or two. It’s not meant to actually hold 36 pairs of shoes unless all of your shoes are very lightweight. The over the door clasps broke and this was returned. The cashier, before even seeing the rack, knew exactly which one it was and said it’s a frequent problem!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from industrial shoe rack This product is pretty straight forward and serves its purpose. Fortunately I know how to use my context clues (picture on the box) to help during the assembly process; the instructions do not explain that the racks should be angled downward. I seemingly built the rack three times due to unclear instructions. It has cool straps that attach it to the bottom of the door!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Actual width 22.25" This was a nearly perfect solution However, the dimension given for width does not account for the tabs on the poles. It is only for the horizontal rack. Granted, this is only a problem if you are trying to gang mount them on a wall. Which I was, in a finite space. I should have double checked the measurement. I will have to overlap the edges, losing some of the aesthetics of the project.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from disappointed I purchased the gunmetal 36 pair over the door shoe rack. I put it together in about 30 minutes an hung it over my door. To my dismay in less than a week the over the door hook did not hold. It would not close over the door, therefore it kept sliding to the side. I was so sure it was going to work (after all this is The Container Store) that I threw out the box. If I had not I would have taken it apart and brought it back. Disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My shoes constantly slip off I had this for a while in the box before assembling it and hanging it on my closet door. It is MUCH bigger than I was anticipating, and for it to fit, I had to remove a magnetic piece in the door frame which helps keep the closet door closed. The worst part though is that my shoes CONSTANTLY slip off. It simply doesn't hold my shoes in place when I open and close the door. It is utterly useless for me. (I wear a 9.5 womens shoes.) I would have returned it for a refund if I hadn't waited so long to finally open the box and install it. AND I tossed the old one I bought this one to replace before realizing this one is useless for me. I've thought about getting gripping tape to try to keep the shoes in place, but really don't know if that will solve my problem. The shelves just seem to shallow.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't Hold Up Unfortunately, I will be returning this. One of the over-the-door brackets did not hold up, which makes this unusable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice, Sturdy Rack, but Bigger than Dimensions This seems like a really nice shoe rack, BUT it needs well more than the 21" listed on its dimensions. I tried to mount it on a 24" door and it requires so much clearance that it needs a 30" door minimum for door mounting. (Maybe that's obvious to most people, but, sadly, wasn't to me.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Twice as Many Shoes! I replaced my old over-the-door shoe rack and now fit exactly twice e as many shoes in the same space. I couldn't get it to work well with the over-door and under-door brackets, but now that I have it screwed into the door, it works really well. Highly recommend this for people who are short on closet space.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Potential, Disappointing Execution I have tried to make 3 of these work. Two days after I initially put it to use, it pulled away from the door. The rack itself seems to be sturdy enough, but the over-the-door hangers are way too weak to hold the weight 36 pairs of shoes put on it. I was able to flex the metal hangers with my bare hands! (and I'm not THAT strong, y'all) If you are able to mount this to a wall, you'll probably be just fine, but I struck out after 3 attempts to make it work as designed and ended up drilling holes through the brackets into the top of the door to try and make it hold without damaging the face of the door.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dont waste your $ 1. I was excited to see a sleek design for an over the door shoe rack 2. Disappointed as I did not expect such a poor quality product from the Container Store. I wish I had read the reviews. 3. The over the door hooks bent out of shape and the rack is falling off the door even before I put shoes on 3 racks and I am a size 6. 4. Poor design and non functional. 5. Complete waste of $ and time to assemble this product and now I have to take all the shoes off and dis-assemble this piece of trash. 6. Please contact me by email to process the return.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Falling apart after 6 months The door hanger has bent so much that it no longer goes over the door. This might be okay if you are using the wall installation feature, but not for over the door use.

Community Q&A

Will this work for men's shoes? If so, still 36 pair?

Asked by: KennyC
Addendum to my previous answer: If you were to mount the bars on, say, a 3" deep rail or other stand-off you'd then get enough depth for men's shoes. That would just move the shelves out to support the shoes better, but wouldn't take up any extra space.

I'm not a fan of over the door mounting systems. I'm thinking about purchasing this one but mounting it to the door (I don't have the wall space).

Wall mounted

Is everything included in order to wall mount the shoe rack or does it need to be purchased separately?
Asked by: jrsyshr
Works great on wall. Very narrow rack and doesn't take up much width in my closet. For ease of assembly I recommend putting the poles together and mounting the top and bottom shelf then mounting it on the wall. The other shelves are much easier to install once the rack is on the wall. I used ratcheted screwdriver and bit rather than the tool that came with the parts.

My door is only 24" wide. Will the rack fit over the handle, which extends 4" from the edge of the door?

Please let me know if the rack will fit over the handle, because it's too wide to fit alongside it. Thanks.

Does this work for taller doors?

My door is 92 inches - can this be hung over the door and hang loose with bottom hooks removed? Or does it need to be secured at the bottom? Thanks!
Asked by: lml525
This would fit over any door as it hangs over top of the door with the door hanger hinges. If it's a solid door, you can mount it directly to the door. If it's a hollow door, you'd want to use the hanger hinges to hang it. The bottom part of the rack just rests on the door. It comes with sticky round door protectors to stick under the metal hardware so that it doesn't scratch up the paint or scratch the door.
