When I first purchased this item I thought that this was all metal. My mistake for not reading the description carefully. I have only had this shoe rack for about a week and it is holding up. I was cautious at first but I had mostly chukka boots, general work boots, and some loafers filling this rack up. It holds up the weight well and does not show any sway or leaning. If you want something that is going to hold up shoes please consider this shoe rack.
I purchased the shelves in addition to other john louis closet organizer items. The quality of all john louis items is great and my closet came out amazing. Given that it's customizable, you need to do some cutting of wood and metal bar.
Over the last two years these have held up beautifully. We installed this in one of my son's rooms and he has been able to fit nearly everything he owns, clothing wise, inside. It has a pretty durable finish that has not been marred with daily use. Very nice product and pretty easy to install - IF you know your way around a saw and a few power tools. We were able to customize it nicely. Maybe I can post pics for ya another day. We hadn't found it cheaper anywhere else. The color reminds me of a true mahogany - like you would expect to find in nautical circles - not overly red in tone. The pictures here on Overstock are really very good. Installed the lighter unit in my other son's room.
Received these doors in red mahogany for my new closet installation. They are high quality and look very nice. The glass is clear and fluted so they won't hide much behind them. But, they make the tower look finished and dressy. They were packaged extremely well, as were all of the John Louis pieces I received. A definite must have for the tower.
