I intended to get this shoe organizer to use in the mudroom. But that plan went out the door when I opened the package and learned that the "shelves" are actually fabric. I really did need a shoe organizer in my closet so it worked out well for me.
It was simple to put together. I did have to do some double-takes and undo connections to one of the side panels because even though I had the panel with the 3 holes on the bottom as depicted in the drawing, I had the panel with the wrong side facing in.
The installation just involves slipping metal rods into the sleeves of the fabric liners and then screwing them to the side panels using the hex wrench provided. One straight fabric piece is set on the bottom and another with multiple folds is used for the front slant and back pocket. Attaching this second fabric took a little extra thought process. I think if the picture instructions showed the piece positioned in a flat state first relative to the sides, it might have been a quicker install.
Because the "shelves" are fabric, you won't want to store shoes that might be wet or dirty from wear outside. This organizer is a good way to display your shoes and keep them organized. The instructions indicated that you can attach a second organizer making it twice as tall. Wood dowels are provided for this purpose. However, the instructions state that the max you can stack is two.
Because the "shelves" are fabric, this is a very lightweight shoe organizer. The panels are laminate. But because the organizer is on the floor, you really aren't going to know it's not real wood. It looks nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Keith CLEAN UP THAT PILE OF SHOES
If you are like us, we used to have a pile of shoes in the basement where we take them off so we don't track yucky things upstairs. It's been a bane of mine for years and I have thought of many solutions to the problem. When I saw this shoe organization unit I said to myself, "Self, get that thing and end the shoe pile problem."
I put it together in a few minutes. It was very easy to assemble with adequate instructions and all the necessary hardware provided. I used an electric screwdriver and went from out-of-the-box to ready to load shoes in about 15 minutes.
The sidewalls are high quality cherry wood laminate that look nice especially at this price point. The shelves are fabric and they have a water resistant coating. The box says 9-pairs of shoes will fit but as you can see in the picture I got 11 pairs and it's not overly crowded. If that's not enough space for your situation, the hardware bag has a couple of wooden dowels that go into holes in the cherry sidewalls so you can stack a second unit securely.
Yay!!! No more shoe piles. This was a great solution to for that problem.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SWong Nice functional shoe organizer
Delivery of this shoe organizer could NOT have come at a better time as we can now organize both our winter ankle boots and dress shoes properly in the mud room. Assembly was not only extremely easy but the materials used on this shoe organizer can easily be wiped with just a damp cloth. Should you purchase multiples of this shoe organizer you can easily stack them thereby increasing quantities of shoes in a already limited single organizer. Purchasers of this shoe organizer should be aware this organizer will not accommodate "thigh-high" boots however calf-high boots will fit nicely on the inclined middle tier. In a pinch you can temporarily cram 6 pairs of winter boots into this organizer just so you will be able to sweep/mop your mud rooms quickly.

The 9-Pair Multi-Level Shoe Organizer is nice addition to the bottom of a closet. With the top shelf angled and lower shelf flat it is easy to see all the shoes, without bending down to view. Got it assembled in about ten minutes and, because it is very light, the next thing I knew, my wife moved it into her closet and had it filled with her shoes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doc766 A nicely designed way to keep my shoes in order and visible for selection
ClosetMaid’s 9-Pair Multi-Level Shoe Organizer is nicely designed and saves floor space in my closet by enabling me to get my shoe collection up from the floor where I can see it. It was easy to assemble and took only a few minutes and a #2 Phillips screwdriver. The finished product was sturdy and fit easily against the side wall of my closet allowing easy selection and access to my shoes.
