This week in WNDU’s “As Seen On TV” test, Terry checked out the “Shoes Under”. It is supposed to be a space-saving solution to organize and protect your shoes from things like dust, sunlight and bugs.
But would the "Shoes Under" buckle under the pressure of our "As Seen On TV” test?
On Terry’s side of the closet, he had to stack about 15 pairs of shoes on top of each other. With the "Shoes Under," he was supposed to be able to put in 12 pairs to gain more space.
One thing Terry noticed, unlike on the infomercial or on the box, the sides are kind of flabby. There's no cardboard insert to hold them up.
Another thing he noticed is that if his feet were any bigger than size 11, it might be a little harder to get the shoes in there. Terry assumes the “Shoes Under” would work better for women.
One of the sections ripped holding Terry’s shoes. So, a word of warning: smaller feet appear to work better in the "Shoes Under."
Terry was unable to keep his shoes dust-free in his closet, but the “Shoes Under” helped him with that problem and created space, once he place the “Shoes Under” under the bed.
The “Shoes Under” has a handle you can use to just push it under, and it's easily stored. When you pull it out, your favorite pair of shoes comes right out from under the bed.
So, overall, the "Shoes Under" did what it professes to do. It maximizes your storage space for shoes, whether it's in a closet or under the bed. Terry’s only bone to pick with this item is that if you have size 11 shoes or bigger, it'll be a little harder to get them in there. Perhaps this is made with daintier feet in mind, so to speak, but Terry was not going to be a heel about it, and gave it a thumbs up.
Terry paid $10 for his "Shoes Under" at Bed, Bath and Beyond.
It is also available on the internet.
