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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Want To Like It I've had this for almost a year and I really don't like it. The idea is great. Utilize the behind the door space and store more shoes than a standing shoe rack. The execution is terrible. As other reviewers said, if you have larger than a women's size 6 foot, your shoes will hang way over. Since I have a size 9.5, mine fall off all the time. The clips for the door are really big and my door can't fully close. Additionally, the clips for the bottom don't fit/work so my shoe rack is only secured at the top. That, combined with the fact that the unit moves when I even try to to close the door, has caused it to bend. As a result, the whole unit comes off the door by about 6 inches at the bottom so the shoes fall out the back as well. Save your money and find a better solution. You end up just dumping your shoes every time you open or close the door.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing I really wanted to like this because I needed a storage for my shoes and I wanted to utilize the over the door rack. It was very easy to put together, but not really an elegant solution or functional. I was hoping that it would work like the elfa door solutions and be fitted to the door. Unfortunately, the over the door hooks are extremely large and can be seen when you close the door. The bottom hook is only a piece of elastic, so when you open and close the door, the unit does not stay securely against the door. I guess the only way to insure it stays secure is to screw it into the door - but I did not want to do that. Shame - it had potential, but fell short. I returned it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good idea in concept, not necessarily in practice The shoe rack was "assembly required". Fortunately, it was easy to assemble. The metal was attractive and exactly as described. I was less than enthusiastic when I actually put it on the door. The rack is billed as "36-pair". That can only work if you aren't trying to store running shoes or your feet are average or smaller in size. I wear a size 8 and I could not get 36 pairs of shoes on the rack because I had several pairs of running shoes, some loafers (Born and Eastland), ankle boots, etc. that were too wide to fit as a pair. That meant I could not organize the rack by function. I could only organize by size. The rack allows you to store the shoes in a flat position but that also means the shelf is deep--too deep for me to open my walk-in closet door completely and it would be deeper if you were trying to store men's shoes. I love Container Store products and this is not exception. I will use this rack in another room, perhaps for guests.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Feels like a bad break up....... This shoe rack was literally love at first sight. I’ve not been able to take my eyes off it since they day I bought it. That was until yesterday when the over the door hook gave out and all my shoes came crashing down on me. We are talking pointed toe stilettos (ouch ) I’m still in love with this shoe rack but I can’t find a way to buy replacement parts. I don’t want to rebuy the whole thing since I’ve only had it a couple of months. Sadly, like most relationships, it was too good to be true....... now my shoes just lay on a heaping pile in the middle of the room while I ice my bruises......

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst shoe rack EVER Moved into a new place and needed to save space. Figured TCS could do no wrong... I bought two racks. On both of the racks, the elastic pieces that are used to hold the bottom hooks in place aren't long enough, so the rack just dangles and doesn't lay flat against the door. Everytime I open the door the rack goes swinging. If you have anything larger than a ladies 8, don't expect your shoes to fit on the rack.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Way too small for Men’s Shoes First and foremost, this is a quality shoe rack from a construction standpoint. I was replacing a cheap plastic rack that held maybe 18 pairs. I was excited as I put the rack together and mounted it on the door, but was quickly disappointed when I saw that there was no way my men’s size 13 shoes were going to stay on the rack. Even at a size 9 or 10 it would be doubtful. So again, extremely well built, but I won’t be able to use it. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shoe rack ever I have tried many different shoe storage options for my narrow closet. I thought I would use this rack in its back of the door configuration, but decided it would work better on the wall. Easy to put together and easy to install. Takes up way less space than other shoe storage systems I've tried and fits a lot of shoes/sandals, sneakers... Very pleased with the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Shoe Organizer Rack Perfect shoe rack! Easy to put together and hangs on my closet door. It does have an option to mount to the wall, however, I don't have any wall space in my closet. Tip for when you're putting this together... is to make sure the shelves are slanting downward, as pictured. I believe it's to prevent the shoes from falling off when you close the closet door. It will only fit two pairs of tennis trainer shoes on one shelf and if you have a lot of pointy toe shoes, these are slightly too long and will not fit perfectly when you have it installed on your closet door. I'm a size 9 in most shoes, and I have a pointy toe pair that's slightly too long, but fit slightly slanted on the shelf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect to hang on wall You can buy one of these at your local discount store but it will look cheep. This one looks good and able to customize for boots or shoes by leaving off a bar here and there. This color is appealing to both woman, men and children

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay ........but kind of a bummer! This rack is nice - I was very excited about it. I opted to install on a wall inside my closet instead of on a door. It's easy to put together. Mine was also bent slightly (or not flush as others have said) but since it's screwed into the wall that isn't an issue. However - I am super bummed that this will not, in fact, hold 36 pairs of shoes. I wear a size 10 (womens) and can only get two pairs plus one shoe on one shelf. I would recommend that they widen this product by about one or two inches. Additionally, most of my heels come up higher on my ankle, or have an ankle strap, and the space between the shelves does not accommodate. I had to alternate heels and flats on the shelves, which conflicts with my need for perfect organization! Obviously, the size 10 shoes also stick out quite a bit from the shelf too. It will serve a purpose but is not exactly what I was hoping for.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not flush i assembled, dissembled, reassembled many times. every time i end up with the same result... its not even. only three legs with be flush with the surface while the other is stuck 3" in the air. i checked the instructions to make sure i didnt swap any pieces, yet its still the same. it is also impossible to close my door with the hooks... unless i want to push the hooks down and pull at the same time every time i wish to open and close my door.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sorely Disappointed & In Need of a Solution Sigh. I had hoped for the best. However, I made the mistake of not reading the reviews before making my purchase. The rack seems poorly constructed and flimsy. Even though I never completely filled it up with shoes, the brackets over hanging the door bent. We reclamped them several times, but they kept bending. I was afraid it would fall off one day while I was at work and hurt the door/ paint job. I eventually had to remove the rack from my door and am seeking a new solution. Even if I somehow added clamps over the original clamps, it would never hold 36 shoes. Frustrating. :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from VERY disappointed...not for larger shoes I bought two of these hoping to organize our shoes properly. My husband wears men's size 10 and I wear women's size 11. Our shoes do not fit. They are too long and fall off the rack. Perhaps the racks work OK for kids' shoes or for small adult shoes. 36 pairs is an exaggeration for any size normal adult shoes. I had no trouble with assembly or fastening to the door. One of the top brackets bent somehow and took some effort to bend back. A bit flimsy. A good amount of clearance at the tops and bottom of the door is needed. Tight fitting doors are not suitable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Rack! As advertised except my sneakers don't quite fit 3 pairs to a row. I can get 2 pairs easily and sometimes one more shoe. That said, it's a sturdy rack, looks good and works way better than the fabric with pockets I was using. Assembly required and be sure to note which way the rows face. I put it all together backward and had to re-do it. Not hard, just took time.
Date published: 2017-10-01
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty good, but not made for men Easy to assemble, though one pre-assembled part came assembled incorrectly. Pretty solid too. Biggest issue is that the racks are only 6" deep, which might be fine for women's shoes but men's shoes will then stick out another 6". This means that most men's shoes will want to fall off. The only thing keeps our shoes in place is that because of the angle, the toe is somewhat wedged in place. You can also try putting the shoes at an angle, but that doesn't really solve the problem. So, overall it's a great rack for women's shoes, and just okay for men's.

Date published: 2017-09-19
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just awful I could not be more disappointed with this shoe rack. After taking 45 minutes to assemble the thing (correctly and per the instructions), the rack does not sit flush with the door causing problems both opening and closing said door. The brackets used to hang the door are extremely flimsy - like, you're able to bend them with your hand, flimsy - and have already warped after holding the rack up for a grand total of 15 minutes, causing the rack to be even more unstable. I live in a very small space and have used over the door hanging storage for quite some time with zero issue, however I am paying for that greatly now with this poorly made piece of garbage. I am so frustrated I don't even want to return this mess, as it means wasting another 45 minutes of my life pulling this apart. If you're still not convinced, fitting 36 pairs of shoes is quite the stretch. To do this, you will need to fit 3 pairs of shoes on each shelf. I wear a size 6 womens and can not fit 3 pairs of sneakers or flats on a shelf without having to turn a pair sideways. Considering my feet are on the extremely small side of the spectrum, this does not bode well for anyone with somewhat normal sized feet. So unlesss you're buying this for your 4 year old who won't mind waking up in the middle of the night when the entire rack falls off his or her door, I wouldn't waste your time or money on this product. I usually swear by the container store, and am shocked that they would sell such a poorly constructed and sorry excuse for a shoe rack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST OVER THE DOOR ORGANIZER EVER!!! I almost didn't buy this product because some of the reviews! Thank goodness I didn't listen to them.....their poor results have to be the result of user error because this organizer works great. I'm guessing they put the racks in the wrong direction. I wear a size 6.5 and was able to fit more than 36 pairs on this organizer. So HAPPY with this purchase especially since I got it on sale!! This product deserves 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice shoe rack! Easy to put together and easy on the eyes. My new closet is small so I wanted a shoe rack that looked nice but held a lot of shoes. This fits the bill! Almost didn't buy because of the other reviews, but they clearly didn't understand how to put it together. It was quite easy and straightforward.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does Not Work I assumed that my shoes fell off the rack because of the momentum from opening and closing the door. As a result, I mounted the rack onto the wall versus hanging on the door. No, this rack does not function. The shelves are positioned too closely to the wall. Therefore, the heel of my shoes doesn't have enough space to provide a grip onto the rack. Result? Every time I pull a shoe from the rack, maybe 6 fall off (minimum). Now I'm annoyed that I drilled a hole in my wall for a product that simply does not function. Looks nice, function fails.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good rack to hang on wall I purchased this rack to hang on the wall in my closet. Unfortunately, it was only after I hung it and my shoes without heels were sliding off that I looked at the photo on the box and realized that I had to disassemble it and turn each of the 10 shelves around. Fortunately, because it was already wall mounted, it didn't take too long. (For assembly, I recommend using a ratcheted screw driver and bit instead of the tool that comes with the package.) I wear a size 8 shoe and most of my shoes fit 3 across. My sneakers are wide so I only got 2 across but can put slippers or other small shoes in between them.
Date published: 2017-04-19
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work, shoes fall off Very disappointed with this product! The shoes continue to fall off of the rack, and as they fall even more come down. Will be taking it down as soon as I find a replacement product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overdoor Shoe Rack Gunmetal I purchased this product with high hopes this would be a nice addition to the back of a closet door in my new house for shoe overflow storage. That said, I am sitting on the floor typing this after giving up after over 30 minutes of installation. I am so frustrated that I stopped and grabbed my computer to write this review. This is honestly one of the poorest quality designed items I have picked up from The Container Store in quite some time and I am sorely disappointed. The problem is where the hex screw attaches to the shoe shelf and then through to the side frame. The hole for the screw in the side frame is simply too big and does not allow for a tight connection with the screw -- you can rattle the shelf right out. I would absolutely NOT recommend this and will be going back to their trusty elfa over the door solution which is much sturdier (and easier to assemble).
Date published: 2016-12-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shoe Organizer This is exactly as it appears in the photo and holds 36 pairs of shoes as stated. It was easy to put together and hangs beautifully on the door. I would have preferred off-white or white plastic coverings on the hooks to make them obscure as most homes have painted woodwork these days, but the rack is functional and great.

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.

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.

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.
