Best mass-produced shoe tree? - Page 2

post #16 of 20
Should shoes always be kept in cedar shoes trees, or is it enough to do so for a couple of days (and then rotate)?

Regards,

Steve

Might anyone have any advice on using shoe trees for a pair of patent opera pumps? It seems that one's typical tree has a toe too pointed for a pump. Too, a pump has so little leather about the toe that it would seem logical to employ a tree expressly designed for this unusual architecture. Do special trees exist for pumps or loafers?

Many thanks to any who might be of assistance.

I use the Woodlore Ultras for most of my shoes, but I find that the J&M's (Washburn) posted above work well for my higher vamp loafers, and my more robust pair of pumps (AE "Ritz" in calf) but not my "slippery" pumps (Polo).

Yes, the AE Ritz are more robust indeed; I can see how they would take a tree nicely. I am concerned with a pair of Peal & Co. pumps that have a considerably more anemic toe. What do you use for your Polo pumps? I have not seen them but a imagine they may be more akin to the Peal & Co. than to the Allen Edmonds.
