Rated 2 out of 5 by from Misrepresentation There is no way that 2’-shelf would hold “3-4 pairs of men's shoes.” My size is 9.5, and regardless of the shoe type, I can only fit two and a half pairs on the self.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a good choice for mens shoes. Bought many of these to work with our many different kinds of shoes. Would scuff the toes of my dress shoes, and sneakers looked sloppy as you had to dress the laces. It did not allow you to easily see the shoes in the back or adequately access them. Despite having spent hundreds, I scrapped them and went to the wood shelves and it looks much better and works quite well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heaven for your shoes!!! I turned my second bedroom walk-in closet into a shoes and purse closet using these shelves. I walk into the closet and the angels literally sing, as I can see all of my glorious shoes that were once thrown all over the place, mis-matched, and some I never even remembered having. This closet and these shelves are amazing! Half of my shoes are at an angle on the back wall; the other wall of shoes are on flat mesh shelves with a liner. And the left side of the closet houses my purses. The closet is simply a girls fantasy come true. Who wouldn’t smile walking into this every day? Add some nice lighting and wood floors, and it looks like a million bucks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gliding shoe racks These are the best things since sliced bread. The shoes are organized, easy to get to and the shoes don't take up closet floor space. The gliders were part of a entire closet remake and I could not be happier, Everything is organized and I have space that I didn't even know was possible. Thank you Sylvie and the container store, They drew up the plans, we modified them together and I have the perfect closet. The installer was amazing, knowledgable and cleaned up everything when he was done. The Reston Virginia store has its' act together and really knows how to treat customers. They are 10 stars in my book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Shoe Shelves - if You Favor Flats I have the hanging shoe shelves for my ELFA closets; however, since most of my shoes are flats and wedges, they fall off the shoe shelves when I pull them out. Angled metal shelves have solved my problems. The shoe shelves are great for heels tho.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My elfa shelves rock and my shoes stay organized! These Angled Solid Metal Shelves are a perfect new addition to my elfa bedroom closet design. I was not using the area to hang blouses and, voila, I have reclaimed the space for storing my shoes. I hooked the shelves into the existing supports without the aid of a handyman. Elfa components rock!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Laundry Room This review is really for the entire Elfa Closet Shelving System. About a year ago I remodeled my laundry room. After much research I decided on the Elfa Shelving System. I chose the Platinum track, hanging standards, ventilated shelves, utility board and accessories, and the angled metal shoe shelf (which I love - see photo). For the solid shelving (which I use as a folding table) I chose white along with the white Fascia for the ventilated shelves. I highly recommend the Fascia as it gives my laundry room a more finished look. A year later and I'm still so pleased with my choice of the Elfa System.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from While I loved the metal shelves, they did not work for me as my closet unit is out of date, some items are obsolete and most brackets will not work. However, I hired a Container Store Consultant to come out and refigure my closet for me. Can't wait for the finished product. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You need this shelf Fits my husband's shoes and keeps them from becoming a jumbled mess. When one of the shelves arrived damaged from shipping (looks like delivery guy dropped the box on a curb, not the CS's fault), they immediately corrected the problem and sent us a replacement. I will be buying more of these from them soon! Wonderful customer service!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love these BUT... These racks are great, I replaced my flat shelves with these since I thought they'd be more in line with the way I wanted to display my shoes. i have these shelves in 2 ft and 3 ft. the shelves look great the problem I found is that shoes that have a platform in the front will fall off the shelves. Shoes that are heavy will slide forward and fall off the racks. I have lots of shoes so it took trial and error to determine which ones will stay on the racks and which ones will fall off. i think a solution would be if the shelves had some type of liner to prevent the shoe from sliding forward and falling off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Shelves I really love these angled shelves. They're lightweight, easy to move around, and store shoes so that they're both easily identifiable and accessible. These shelves, along with all of the other Elfa components, has made our mudroom/entryway so much more efficient and organized. I also love that the Elfa shelving utilizes all of the available vertical space for maximum storage capacity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great idea I first bought the the rounded metal shoe racks and while they work great for heeled shoes there must be a definite heel for the shoe(s) to stay put.. When I saw these shelves thought perfect to replace the other racks. And they are! The Elfa system makes it so easy to change designs and these new shelves hold all styles of shoes and they are easy to view. I get 3 pairs of shoes per rack. I also bought the 24" closet rod to attach at the bottom (using a wire shelf) to hang my boots.

Community Q&A

Flats vs Heels

The description says holds 4-6 pairs of flats - is it not recommended for high heels?
Asked by: GINAD
You can use it for high heels, you just have to make sure you have enough height between the shelves. I was close on space and have to have the heels hang off the back of the shelves. Best solution for flats, rods work best for heels, but this will certainly work for heels too.

Does the Gliding Mesh Shoe Shelf require brackets to be purchsed seperately?

Asked by: KathrynGee
Yes, we didn't realize that you needed the brackets and had to order them separately. We previously had the rods for the shoes which do not require the brackets.

Does the gliding mesh shoe shelf work with wall mounted standards?

Asked by: Lomarr
Yes, you need the standards. We to do a little adjustment because ours were a little close together, but we removed the upper shelves, moved the standard over a 1/2" and they worked perfectly.

do i need to buy the brackets which are attached to the wall, from which the shelves hang? i do not understand what is meant by "integrated bracket".

it appears that the shelves are hanging from a bracket that is attached to the wall. based on the notion that the shelves have adjustable positioning on the bracket, i would assume that the shelves are not actually physically fused to the bracket. i am therefore confused by what is meant by the phrase "integrated bracket". my natural assumption is that i need to purchase the brackets separately, but there is no mention or link to any bracket, besides references to bracket integration. can you please explain clearly? thank you
Asked by: ccbk
No. The shelves have small brackets made into them that allow you to hang them directly on the Elfa Easy Hang Standard. They fit into the slots on the standards.

How deep is the mesh shoe shelf?

I see the width as either 18" or 24", but wondering if this will work underneath the cabinet size drawers (i.e. 16 3/4 depth)?
Asked by: Christine3816
It’s about 16” deep.

When calculating how many shelves I can fit, how much height do I need to factor in for the shelf itself?

Later, I'll add in the height of what I want to store, but I don't know how steep the angle is and, consequently, how much vertical space I need to allow per angled shelf.
Asked by: babbinc
For flats, I used 8" for each shelf. The shelf takes 2; with 6" between each shelf.

What brackets do I buy for the 3" shelves?

Asked by: LadyJay
No additional brackets are necessary. The shelves are made with brackets that fit into the slots on the Elfa Easy Hang Standard.

How far apart in height do I space them? I have a vertical area that is 36" in, how many shelves will fit?

Asked by: HeatherK
Honestly, it depends on the height/type of the shoes on the shelf. If you're storing flats, you can have them closer together than if you were storing ankle boots/booties with heels.
