Woodlore is owned by Allen Edmonds (AE) and typically AE has high quality products. It was AE's reputation that caused me to purchase this cedar shoe valet. However, from the moment that I lifted the Amazon shipping box containing the item, I felt disappointed because a quality shoe valet should have felt heavier. Therein lies my principal grievance with this shoe valet, its quality is surprisingly on par with that of a cost-effective import. Yes, the cedar aroma is quite fragrant without being overwhelming and the foot rest is a good size and very sturdy. However, the valet is assembled via small staples that are readily visible. If you look closely (zoom) at the Amazon image, you will see the small staples (I am at fault for not zooming in and observing the visible staples prior to placing my order). The four feet at the bottom are small, thin, rubber pieces that are stapled to the wood. I lifted the valet using both hands on the bottom and the bottom piece of wood creaked and flexed ... I sincerely doubt that the bottom wood is 5/8 inch thick like the side walls. I understand that cedar wood naturally has knots, creases, and does not always have the refined finished of worked woods. However, the removable lid for this shoe valet had poor alignment and a long split where the wood had separated.

I am no stranger to shoe valets, I happen to have a very nice solid wood valet by Kiwi. Comparing my Kiwi shoe valet with this one from Woodlore left me no option but to return the Woodlore and spend the extra money for a George shoe valet. If this will be your first shoe valet, if you are only concerned about having a place to store your shoe cleaners/conditioners/polishes, or this price point is your personal preference, then this valet may be satisfactory for your needs. However, if you already have experience with a quality shoe valet then I cannot recommend this particular shoe valet because you will be disappointed.

I bought this at at Amazon at a very fair price. This is a great (if not original) idea, and it is generally well executed. But when it arrived I fooled around with it for 5-10 minutes and could not get the top to budge. (I wasn't even sure what to push/pul/slide -- it was just a cedar cube (the shoe rest was stored inside). I'm a 6' 4" 270 lbs former football player and infantry officer, and the problem was not that I wasn't strong enough to force it open -- the issue was trying to get it open without breaking it. A friend came over and he was able to get it open enough to attach the shoe rest, but it STILL takes tremendous pressure to get the top to slide in the groves in the sides. I will eventually find the time to take it out to my shop, force it open, and sand down the edges of the top (and perhaps rub a little candle wax in the groves) so it will work fine. It's nice looking and seems generally well made, but for some reason the tolerances between the groves in the side panels and the thickness of the top on the one they sent me were too tight. I'm guessing based upon the other reviews that I got a lemon, and don't mean to discourage others from buying what otherwise seems like a very nice item. I strongly suspect that if you did get one like mine that you could return it and get it repaired or replaced.

This box is good quality, larger than expected (that's a good thing!)and is easy to store. It has plenty of room inside to hold all of your shoe shining gear. Our order arrived quickly and in great shape.

Great, thick piece of wood. Smells great. You can take the shoe rest off so that it is a flat top box. This is a wonderful valet.

I received my Woodlore Professional Valet yesterday, and I am very pleased with it.

When I opened the package, I immediately noticed the smell of the product - the cedar smell is excellent and reminds me of my humidor. The valet itself is well constructed; I didn't notice any cracks or splits in the cedar itself. There are no gaps where the different cedar boards meet, either. The piece that you place your shoe upon (shoe stand?) is detachable and comes in the valet wrapped in bubble wrap. Included are the two bolts and tool to attach it to the top of the valet.

After I attached the shoe stand to the valet, I noticed that the bolts were flush with the underside of the lid. This is great as I can fill the valet to the brim with supplies and never have to worry about a bolt snagging something and preventing the lid from opening.

With a little pull, the lid slides open (as apparent in the product photo), but the lid itself does not freely slide. There is a metal bit that prevents the panel from sliding on its own, but allows for the owner to open it by simply sliding the lid open normally. As another reviewer noted, it is a little tricky to open the box the first time before you mount the shoe stand on top of the lid, but it's not impossible.

On the bottom of the valet are four rubber feet that allow it to resist movement on shelves, tables, floors, etc - especially handy when you're buffing your shoes.

The interior of the valet has plenty of room to store your shining supplies. To give you an idea on how much you can fit in it, I have three shine brushes, a polish brush, a bottle of saddle soap, a bottle of leather conditioner, two tins of shoe polish, and a buff cloth. There is even room to fit my metal shoe horn as well, but I keep it on top of my valet as it is more readily at hand there.

The valet is a high quality product and I would recommend it to others.
