You can buy Woodlore Combination Shoe Trees at Nordstrom Rack for $12.95 all the time.

 

Woodlore is in fact owned by Allen Edmonds. There are times throughout the year Nordstrom Rack drops the price on these as well.

I will be honest here I have to have the little badge that reads Allen Edmonds....Alden etc for corresponding manufactures.

I used  to wear $40 Dexter shoes from Payless swearing that there was no difference in shoe brands.  Now I have two pair of shoes in my collection, soon to be three with the addition of an Allen Edmonds, A Johnson and Murphy Suffock and a Rockport Evander and I swear that I can tell the difference between the two if you blind fold me and turn me around three times and strap one of the two to my feet  I can tell you which one you have strapped to my feet.  So much so I have become somewhat of a shoe snob, I refuse to wear the Evanders, they are like strapping lead to my feet and  I will shortly have the Allen Edmond's Fiesol's to share the burden with the Suffock shoes.

I believe. AE used Woodlore for their shoe trees. I picked up 4 sets of Woodlore trees at my local Nordstrom Rack for $12.90 a piece.

Do I need to put heal plates on the heel's of my new Allen Edmond shoe's to prevent wear and tear to the heel's?

I wouldn't. Replacing heels is not very expensive.

Flip the plate over, showing only bare silver rather than whatever manufacturer / store's name is on them.

You don't need to, and many including me don't... but if you walk a lot or in such a way as to wear down the heel quickly, it may be a good investment.

Just got the invoice for my own MTO shoes today. I went with a cappuccino shell Kenilworth with a double JR sole and also made my own version of Foo's oneshoe. I got a burgundy shell MacNeil made on the 5-65 last without the split reverse welt, but with the double JR sole. Adding those to my black Park Aves, brown Strands, and burgundy shell Randolphs. I think my next order is going to be a pair of brown shell Dundees, unless anyone else has some suggestions. I think I have most of my bases covered between black stitch cap, brown brogue, burgundy shell longwing, brown shell PTB and burgundy shell loafers, but I'm curious if there are any other "must-have" shoes that I'm missing. A brown punch-cap maybe? Any ideas?
