I have spent so much money on shoe holders. I've tried over the door, they just weren't right. I tried free standing trees. They weren't right. I've tried the shelves, they weren't right. Mostly the problem was that they weren't long enough, neat enough or hold enough. Also, I tend to wear predominantly black shoes. It doesn't help me to only see the back of the shoe because I couldn't tell which shoe it was often. Then I saw this. I was concerned at first because of size, but truly, it is lovely in my home, acts as a piece of furniture for my shoes, and I can place both shoes, side by side, in one slot, allowing me to hold my whole season's worth of shoes for me to easily view. I change out with the season, and put the past season away. I am truly happy I made this purchase and my search for the right shoe holder is over.
I love this...I admittedly have too many shoes and storing them in a crate wasn't helping matters. I set aside 5 hours to put this thing together--because I don't have the attention span to complete in one sitting. Well in an hour I was done and putting shoes in the cubbies. Now I can toss shoes I rarely wear and keep shoes I love longer!
This piece is great for storing a lot of shoes. I frequently entertain large groups, and this shoe cabinet provides the needed storage for my guest's' shoes. It also looks great and is easy to assemble. At first, I thought that some of my husband's shoes were too large to fit in the slots. I was mistaken. Simply turn one shoe sideways and the pair fits perfectly. The only downside is that the cabinet is quite heavy.

The cabinet is beautiful. The materials arrived with no scratches or breaks. The quality for the price is perfect. If you follow the instructions, it will take less than an hour to build. There will be some lifting involved during assembly, so I recommend you have a helper to assist. I assembled alone, so it's definitely possible if heavy lifting is not a problem.
I had been looking for a way to organize our shoes for a long, long time. All the furniture I saw was laid out horizontally and held a limited number of pairs. We are a family of four (granted, the kids have small feet) living in a small apartment in New York. I could never make room for the shoe storage benches and cubbies I found elsewhere. When I saw that this piece of furniture is VERTICAL, I bought it right away. It only holds 24 pairs of adult shoes but it holds twice as many little kid shoes. It takes up very little floor space, which is good for us. It's fairly well made for the price. I highly recommend this cabinet.
