For the past few months, I’ve been caught up in a slow process of renovating and reorganizing my house. While the floors, walls, and ceiling work will have to wait, I’ve been doing what I can to do away with clutter. The biggest problem in our house right now is simply not having enough storage options. We have the space for it, but very little shelving overall. I’ve been doing what I can to change that by adding bookshelves, upgrading tables, and integrating cabinet organizers to put more of our stuff away. However, that’s just the beginning. For a while, I’ve been on the hunt for entryway storage, and of course, I’ve been picky about it. It’s not the largest space to work with, so I wanted to make sure that anything I placed there had multipurpose flair. Fortunately, I found just what I was looking for at Songmics in the form of the VASAGLE Slim Shoe Storage Rack.

What is the VASAGLE Slim Shoe Storage Rack?

The VASAGLE Slim Shoe Storage Rack is a six-tier shelf organizer that’s made to fit in small spaces, but can be used in homes of any size. Measuring 10.4x 11.8×43.5 inches, the rack accommodates up to six pairs of shoes and is topped with a flat surface for storing mail or displaying plants and other items. It also comes with a matching pair of hooks that can be attached to the left or right side of the unit, based on your desired layout.

Each shelf has 6.7 inches of space between them and a 20-pound weight capacity, making it possible to shelve larger pairs of shoes and boots. There’s also a small backboard on each tier that keeps your shoes from sticking out too far and scuffing up the wall behind it. Available in white or black, the storage rack requires assembly and comes with all the tools you’ll need to put it together along with anti-tip hardware to prevent it from tipping over.

Why I Love the VASAGLE Slim Shoe Storage Rack

After unboxing the Slim Shoe Storage Rack and seeing all the pieces, I settled in with Wish on Disney+ and got to work. It has a lot of pieces, but the instructions are easy to follow and the finished product is so sleek and sturdy that it makes the assembly time worth it. The shelves are strong and can hold many different types of shoes from heavyweight boots and high-tops to ballet flats and mules. Since we were always kicking our shoes off at the door, I love that we can now stack them neatly instead of having a mess of footwear on the floor.

Other than the style and storage capacity of this small space-friendly organizer, I absolutely LOVE the included hooks. It was such a smart move to make them customizable so they don’t stick out where you don’t want them to. Plus, I can always switch sides if I suddenly need to move the organizer to another part of the house. The hooks work as an umbrella or key holder, but I use them for my dogs’ leashes. Before I got this storage rack, I was throwing the leashes anywhere out of the way, but now they have a dedicated place. I also keep dog wipes on top of the shoe storage rack to clean the dogs’ feet as soon as they’re inside, which has prevented our living room rugs from being decorated with muddy pawprints.

For $50, you get so much more than your money’s worth with this organizer. It’s strong, versatile, and space-saving. Plus, if you don’t actually need a shoe rack, you can use it for books, towels, and more. Trust me, you won’t regret it!
