I hate leaving bad reviews, but I definitely don't want someone else to have the same experience I did. This shoe rack may be able to hold shoes if they're arranged like the picture, but not much more than that. It was incredibly simple to put together, but unfortunately the quality is not good. As soon as I placed my shoes on there (20 pair, which is 10 less than what it advertises it holds), it started to lean. Within about 30 seconds, it completely collapsed and all of the poles came loose. I will note my shoes weren't very heavy either. The replacement shoe rack I purchased somewhere else holds them perfectly.
