I need to start this review by saying this was more difficult to put together than I anticipated. Due to a manufacturing error, one of the pre-drilled holes wasn't in the correct position for one of the bolts. Luckily I have an electric drill with actual drill bits so I was able to correct the problem myself, otherwise I would have had to return the whole thing. So that was frustrating, but once I got it together it is very sturdy.
It is not as tall as it appears in the photo so be sure to check the dimensions. While it is certainly functional for shoes, bins, and general storage, it doesn't serve the purpose I need it for so going to buy something else and use this in the closet for shoes.
