At last, shoe racks that are fabulous. They say third time lucky, this is true for me in my search for the ideal shoe rack. The first rack I bought was vertical like a tree, the shoes hung around it in tiers, which collapsed from the weight. The second shoe rack was the plastic kind, that the shoes kept falling through. These racks are smaller than the plastic ones, so I bought two and managed to get all my shoes on them with a pair of slippers underneath. I have them next to each other, and I can fit 3 1/2 pairs of size 9 (ladies shoes) on each rack, 7 pairs on 2 racks. My highest heels are 3" and they fit OK, but if you have really high heels, they will not fit. These racks don't take long to put together and they look very attractive I cannot stop admiring them. The old racks looked awful and I wanted to hide them. These are sturdy attractive and washable, what more could you ask for.
