Great product for those overwhelmed with shoes. It should be noted that while the connectors for this are plastic, the poles and shelving part of the unit is metal, which is much better quality than some I've seen in stores for a similar price point. This does a great job for holding shoes. Because the top part is open, but has a supported rod at the side, the top shelf is ideal for storing boots, which is essential when you live somewhere cold! The fact that the rods are slatted means a lot less of a clean up from shoe mud on the shelves.
Looks great in my entryway and is not so wide that it stops the door from opening. I have to say my favourite, most unexpected feature of this is the ability to remove individual rods. My entryway has a heating vent (unused as my heating turns on per room) that prevented the rack from being pushed against the wall and since space is at a premium I was able to remove the back rod of the second shelf. With this rod removed the protruding heating vent was no longer an issue and the rack could fit snugly to the wall and still store shoes fine on that shelf.
Assemble was extremely easy with clear instructions, however if you're weak armed like me you might have to give quite a hard push to get the rods connected all the way. My husband was able to do this with ease.
Very happy with my new shoe rack tower which has more than enough room for my husband and I's entire shoe collection.
