Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these shoe cubbies! I bought four units and put them together by myself, and I am 74 years and a woman. I love the quality and I love being able to see which shoes are in the containers. No more shoeboxes with hidden shoes for me! I stopped by the container store in South Florida to see the quality and loved them so much that I ordered 4 with free delivery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe organizer! All the shoes are off the bottom of my closet now, thanks to this handy organizer. It holds a lot of shoes in a small amount of space and sits either horizontally or vertically, which is very effective in my closet. I bought two of these, and each one holds 12 pairs of shoes. A pair of my shoes fit easily into each cubby, but I have small feel; if your shoes are big or bulky, two might be too big for a cubby. I'm not handy at putting stuff together, so I had a friend help me and it wasn't bad.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't be assembled I am so disappointed by this product. The outer shelves provided have two grooves that do not line up with the racks so there's no way to fit the actual shoe rack in. Either we were sent the incorrect parts (which is incredibly frustrating because we don't have a car to return it easily) or this is a terrible product and you should not purchase it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Shoe Organizer Purchased 4 of these organizers. Very easy to assembly. Sturdy and shoes fit perfectly. Easily holds everything from running shoes to heels in one slot. They are stackable and can be used vertically or horizontally. Highly recommend for your shoes storage needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shoe Cubbies are the best!!!!! I purchased this product right away when I started working for my new client. Then bought 4 more to go in their home, it has been an absolute dream to have them. This is great for somebody trying to organize and stay on top of their shoes without them being put into piles, especially with kids!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I am very happy. I bought three for my side of the closet. I had to stand on end because of the space I had, but it works perfectly. I keep going back into my closet to admire how clean and organized it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home for Shoes This is a great home for shoes. Its fits in my closet easily and and each cubby is a great size for my shoes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from the shoes aren't hiding anymore! i've tried hanging bags, the 2 layer rack in the closet and the stacks of boxes (still have those) and these are great for keeping the everyday shoes aired and also like with like. The cubbies aren't quite big enough for all the pairs of sneakers and i have to turn the second clog a different direction for them to fit but can get 2 pairs of summer shoes in a cubby sometimes!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice affordable piece but hard to assemble This is a nice affordable piece that doesn't take up too much space. Unfortunately the assembly was harder than it needed to be. Perhaps a drill would have been better? I struggled to get the screws flush to wood and ended up slightly damaging the wood in a couple of places. Additionally, the screw covers are flimsy and don't stay on at all. The nails provided (to nail down the back panel) are unnecessarily tiny!! In hindsight I should have just tossed them and used regular sized nails (hint). Decided to keep the unit because it is serving it's purpose in my baby's closet but I would not buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from exactly what I was looking for It's nice to have something I have confidence in... I stacked these 2 hight and love love love it at the back of my alley style closet. I am thinking of adding one more high. I would 100% recommend this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cannot stack securely - dowels does not fit This seemed to be the best shoe organization option as it seems to be stable and could be used vertical, horizontal, and even stack up. I haven't bought a house and no plans to buy soon, so this was a big plus. So I got 2 and was going to stack it up. However, after I finished assembling 2 of them and was about to stack them up, found out that the dowels to secure them are too big to fit in the holes provided. I do't understand why it is made like that. Now I need to figure out how to make it work as I don't have a car and it would be another issue to return them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job I was really excited to be reorganizing my shoes. Went to the store to pick up. Wanted it in white and it said it was available in store. Unfortunately when I got there it had been badly damaged, so I went ahead and got the natural. Came home to put it together and realized it was used! There were screws taped to the outside of the box - and of course was missing one. Also the screw covers were white not natural so I didn't even use them. I didn't want to make the 50 mile roundtrip back to the store and since it is hidden in my closet I just lived with it. The good news is my shoes are not strewn all over the floor anymore and I can find what I need in the morning. And I'm guessing when it is new and has all the parts, it's a great solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe storage option I purchased one of the 8-pair organizers along with one of the 12 pair organizers. I use the 12-pair for my smaller shoes and sandals, although I'm also able to fit even larger pairs like my running shoes. Boots will fit if you give each shoe it's own cubby. Between the two units, and doubling up on a few flip flops and flats, I'm able to house all of my 24 pairs of shoes, with my rain boots on top. 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.

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!
Date published: 2018-04-15
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 Poor quality Idea and size is good, but the quality is very poor and breaks apart during assembly, dont recommend.

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).
Date published: 2017-12-27
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.
Date published: 2017-10-05
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.

Wall Mounting?

Hello, Can this be wall mounted? I assume it doesn't come with the brackets for this but want to know if the product is sturdy enough for it. Cheers, Linton
Asked by: Linton
I personally, would not wall mount this. The back is very thin and the construction is not thick enough to hold the weight. My husband made a shelf that one sits on which holds my purses.

You remember it. I remember it. And our kids are going to remember it: the college dorm room. And while some things change - my beloved Sting poster that was on my wall is now replaced by what? Maybe a lovely piece of art or montage of fun photos of friends and memories? Some things never change when it comes to dorm rooms - it's probably the smallest space you'll ever reside.
