There are many types of shoe holders but this wood shoe cubbies cabinet is one of the most stylish and elegant solutions for storing shoes. You wont want to hide this shoe cubby, which holds up to 24 pairs of shoes plus extra storage on the bottom....more
This shoe rack is exactly what we needed to corral all the shoes which gather in our front hallway. It was easy to assemble -- I did it by myself in about half an hour. It looks very nice in our entryway. The quality seems higher than I would normally expect for a product that requires assembly. The finish is high-quality, and it came with a touch-up marker to hide any small scratches. Each cubby easily fits one pair of kids or women's shoes. Some of my husband's shoes need individual cubbies. We are very happy with this purchase.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very well
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very good, especially for a self-assembled product
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate
This piece is a pain to put together. Make sure to have plenty of floor space. There are a ton of parts. I mean bags full of assorted, differing hardware and many 'wood' pieces that make up the unit.
That said, while it takes time assembly really isn't difficult. It basically went off without a hitch and all the parts were there. Was it perfect? No. But no piece where assembly is required is going to be. The directions were not difficult, just lengthy.
All in all, assembly was long, yet easy.
Once it is assembled the piece is very smart looking and functional (and looks like the picture on the Overstock website). I wasn't thrilled with the flimsiness of the cubby dividers (long horizontal and vertical slats which intersect in a grid to make up the shoe cubbies), and the non 'stained' part of the one of the slats that make up the shoe grid protruded beyond the external plain of the grid. They give you a brown magic marker for that, which seems like a bit of a bandaid solution.
The cubby dividers walls (slats) are not solid, but malleable. It's not a huge deal though.
It also takes forever to get the warehouse smell out of it, even after repeated cleanings.
On the Overstock end, it took WAY, WAY too long to ship. Weeks! It was supposed to be an Xmas gift, and I missed the mark by a mile.
Well, I suppose you get what you pay for. All in all, it looks nice and is functional...not that bad. I would ultimately recommend this product.
For the price and my needs, it works perfectly. I am quite satisfied with it. It took us about 2 hours to put together, but we took our time.. Nothing too complicated.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Good
Please tell us about the quality of the product. It's fine. It is chipboard as expected. There was one small area that was chipped, but a marker was included to touch it up and based on what I am using this for, I didn't care. It looks fine.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Pretty accurate. The measurements were good as well, which was important since I had a tight fit. It just made it.
Construction was much easier than other reviewers implied. It wasn't bad at all with two people. Took us about an hour, We needed something this size for where we wanted it to go, but the shoe cubbies are a bit small. Many adult shoes, or high heels had to be placed in separate cubbies from their partner. Overall pleased with this purchase, very handsome.
Product had a very fine hairline crack across the two long sides- damaged In transit? Did not notice the damage until I had it assembled and could view it in daylight conditions. Hopefully, since the cracks turned out to be opposite each other (top to bottom), the other connections will help keep it from being a problem. Being a shoe cubbie, it won't be used to carry a lot of weight load, but I was disappointed considering what I had to pay for it.
I did not buy this item to store shoes....I bought it to store my collection of yarn, and yes, it stores quite a bit of yarn! I'm actually thinking of buying a second one, because the after-Christmas sales were very attractive in the yarn shops!
My 14-year-old granddaughter put this together for me. We laid out all the pieces and labeled them with sticky notes (this little act of organization helped tremendously). Then we followed the instructions exactly. I acted as the helper, and she did all the work. She had it together in about an hour. We found the instructions to be very thorough and clear, but, again, labeling the pieces made life much easier.
The cabinet looks very nice. The style is attractive, and it looks so much better than my huge bags of yarn sitting everywhere! It is exactly as described. It's not high-cost furniture, but it's very sturdy and it met my needs. If I had a walk-in closet, I would buy one of these for my closet. Alas, I do not.
I'm very happy with the value of my purchase. I had a 10% coupon from O'Stock, so that made it even cheaper. The delivery was fast, and the UPS guy brought it into the house for me (it weighs 80 pounds).
The name of the item is the Espresso Tall Shoe Cubbie Cabinet. The color is Espresso, not grey. What you were reading is an "Attribute or a Feature," that helps in looking up similar products, it doesn't have anything to do with the product or the description of the product.overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 11, 2012
