Really pleased with these
on 6 February 2014
Despite the price being a little high for plastic build-it-yourself shoe storage I am actually pleased with how these look once assembled. They really improve the look of the dead space above the wardrobe, which is no longer a graveyard of differently sized shoe and storage boxes.
The only caveats are:
- the outrageous delivery cost! ...I bought 2 sets, so I paid 16 pounds for delivery. They took 3 days to arrive, and were actually just 2 small boxes. For that price I would expect next day delivery and it would still be fairly extortionate.
- If you are a female with trendy platform shoes or booties (or incidentally, a guy who wears high-tops) then these styles will be too tall to fit in one cube. I had to buy 2 sets, and make most of the sections double height because of this issue. It's irritating because it creates a lot of dead-space (high-tops/booties are only slightly too tall for 1 cube, but vastly too short for a double height section so it looks rather clumsy and wastes a lot of space). Knee boots require a section 3 cubes tall, so bear that in mind if you have any - that will means it really houses half the number of shoes stated here.
