8-Pair Shoe and Purse Organizer is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 65.
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 4 out of 5 by from Nice organizer I bought this one and turned it horizontal to store all of my Miche purses and shells. It works great to keep them organized and within easy reach.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely addition to my closet! I LOVE how easy they are to put together and how it is so much easier to see my shoes displayed beautifully! I have 4-5 pairs of shoes that I have NEVER worn because I've been storing them in their boxes and forgetting they were there. Good Job Container Store!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shoe Organizer I can see my closet floor now! My shoes were out of control. I have big feet and wear lots of Crocs - so I needed something that could handle big shoes. The organizer unit is awfully heavy - but easy to put together and corrals my shoes beautifully!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Going Vertical in the Shoe World Everyone has more shoes than space. I purchased one 8 and one 12 shoe organizer last sunday! Assembly took minutes. This instantly took my shoes, which were lined up like soldiers on the top shelf, gave me more space and utilized the vertical space efficiently. I would have liked to see the price point lower on this product but for instant results, I gave it the five stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 8-Pair Shoe Organizer is Ubiquitous! This unit swings both ways! It's built to hold weight, so you can store stuff in it sitting horizontally or vertically. Constructed of fibre-board, it's pretty butch, but don't drop it during assembly. It's also deceivingly heavy - dragging this sucker to the subway could easily become an Olympic event.
Date published: 2014-03-03
Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2014-02-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

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.

Would these shoe organizers be sturdy on carpet?

We have carpet in our closets, and I want to be sure that they will not tip over easily.
Asked by: misslisabug
Yes, but if it's thick carpet, I might not stack them.

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.
