Has anyone had experience with this shoe holder?



It seems like it could be useful in the shine process, although sort of a luxury at $60.

This one is a bit cheaper at $24.

What's the verdict?

Stax,

I use the cheaper version and I am generally please with it. I attached it my closet which about midway. I find that it makes polishing shoes easier than bending down and I can usually buff the shoe better using it.

Thanks Max. So the $24 version is fairly sturdy then?

Glad to know it makes the job easier. It looks as if it would.

I believe it's fairly sturdy, I'm not that picky, but it usually does pretty well for me. Generally, I only have problems when I don't take time to make sure everything is snug.
