Rated 5 out of 5 by seastarbliss Makes things look NEAT!
I have looked longingly [in catalog] at this boot tray for years and felt it was just too expensive even though I loved the look and usefulness of it. When I saw it go on sale for a decent price, I finally indulged in the purchase. I am happy with what it does, how it looks, and quality--- though I admit I'd have liked it to be just a bit heavier. It looks handsome and keeps clutter down! I am a happy customer with this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SoLongBrickNMorter Very pretty - and useful way to manage shoes at entry!
Love the look. Agree with others that the construction is not very sturdy. BUT - depends on your use. We mainly use to "corral" shoes when coming in from the garage to family room. Great look on reddish cherry hardwood floors. We did need to put felt rounds on the bottom to avoid scratching the floor. For wet boots - we've put down a piece of carpet to absorb the liquid - can see how it would quickly rust if you use a lot for boots. A nice addition to the entry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 4everredecorating Elegant organization!!
These trays provide elegant organization in our foyer and collect the sand and salt in the inclement weather. They rinse clean and even fit my son's size 14 athletic shoes!!

Adore the copper tray. Bought the black rubber one first and I can say I like them both but the copper one is something special.

Rated 5 out of 5 by alwayshappy Definitely what was advertised
It's the perfect solution to dirty shoes/boots coming into the house. Love the attractive finish and have received great reviews from house guests who are now keeping "THEIR" shoes off my entry carpet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Neatnick The more the merrier!
I ordered this boot tray for my beach house so everyone could kick off their sandy flip flops. I liked it so much I ordered it for my home, and, I've given one as a house-warming gift! So much more attractive than any others I've seen and the sides are higher than average so they keep the "muck' contained. I just vacuum it out and occasionally wipe it down with a wet rag. Great value!

I purchased two 5 X 8's and two 2 X 3 sized rugs. The are very sturdy and thick. I love the quality, very animal friendly.

We have no entry hall at our back door, and we keep
garden clogs by the door. This tray keeps these shoes
corralled, and the tile floor free of mud, leave, grass

Well worth waiting for . Boot tray is beautiful and functional. Everyone is commenting on how beautiful it is. Looks great in my kitchen and will hate to put it away until next winter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Eyeswideopen Pretty, not so practical.
This boot tray looks great in our hallway but unfortunately isn't as practical as our previous hard rubber one. The main drawback is that the quilted design does not hold wet boots/shoes high enough off the surface. They sit in the expanding puddle rather than the moisture dripping off while the item dries. It will work well enough for items that are not wet. And it looks so darned good I couldn't send it back. Guess I will keep using my old one for the wet/snowy months.
One other issue is that we have a tile hallway and you do need to put felt on the bottom to avoid scratching the tile. It also makes a loud noise against the tile when my husband drops (rather than places) his shoes on it.

by illustr8r This tray RUSTS!
Boot tray looks great but dents easily. I received this as a gift for my entryway. My husband and son have been great in removing their wet boots and shoes when they enter the house. This tray RUSTS! Only buy if you use for boots and shoes that are already dry before you put on the tray. Not the quality that I would expect from Ballard.

Exactly as promised. Would only suggest that felt bottoms or cushions be on it. I added those myself.

I would give it 5* but for it's just a bit too big to keep at our back door where we enter. Narrow area and the tray is large. My fault for not measuring before ordering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RNRS Beautiful addition to Mud Room area.
I love the copper. It dresses up the area and goes very well with my accessories in my Mud Room. Easy to clean and always looks shiny and neat, even with wet and muddy boots.

Looks great. Such an improvement over the cheap black boot trays you find in any hardware store. Much wider, so it holds more. Helps us keep our entryway clean. Neat and attractive.

This was purchased as a gift for my daughter-in -law who lives in Arizona, is a nurse and works 12 hour days. The first thing she does when she comes home is take off her shoes. The boot tray is very attractive as well as functional. It is big enough to hold several pairs of boots and shoes. She loves it!

I purchase this boot tray a few weeks ago for my mud room and I love it. I was nervous b/c I saw some reviews about it not lying flat. But it lays completely flat and it was bigger and sturdy than I thought it would be. I'm actually going to purchase another one for my front door it's that nice for the foyer too!!

I purchased this boot tray for our mud niche, but it looks so good that we decided to use it for our main entrance. It is light but the construction looks sturdy, I really appreciate how the metal is welded at the corners.

Disappointed that something this expensive would not lay flat on the floor. It otherwise looks good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bryan Nice picture, poor quality.
I am a quality shopper. I'll spend a bit more for the peace-of-mind. I look to my mail-order sources to do the sorting for me.
This item may be useful but I took one look at it and in the basement on a shelf is where is it sitting. It's flimsy, light-weight and was tweaked so that it didn't sit true on the floor.
Sorry, Ballard Designs. You've lost my business.

The elegant boot tray is a bit longer than my former rubber one. It looks so regal in my chestnut trimmed foyer. Really dresses it up. Thank you, Lou

Am hoping it won't pit over time.
Wish you offered an extra long version for greater capacity.
