These shoe racks were easy and quick to assemble. They did, however, have a bit of an odor. Allowing them to "air out" for a few days prior to having them closed up in my closet, seems to have eliminated the odor. The size of the rack is as stated in the description. I found, however, that I was able to fit more shoes onto the racks than the description indicated. The two shelves are far enough apart that a pair of casual shoes can be stacked, one atop the other, and still fit between the shelves. Of course this will vary with the size and style of ones shoes but I found it a happy bonus when loading up my shoes. The quality of construction is about average.
We are using this rack by our back patio door and it helps so much with the shoe/boot pile up that we always have year round! I put it together quickly. It has a minor defect. One of the screws doesn't fit into the hole in the rack but it doesn't matter. Good looking and unobtrusive, doesn't take up much space, it's a good buy.
