Not that important, but preferred in an ideal world. Absolutely to the second. As long as the tree isn't much too large, any tree is better than no tree.

J. Bank has shoe trees. ! Sales person told me they were made by Woodlore. Have no idea if that is close to the truth. But they have various sizes and they seem ok for some of my casual shoes. Retail is $25 I believe but the things are 50% off very often.

As long as it's cedar and not plastic, the brand of shoe tree shouldn't make much of a difference.

anyone know if these are the same trees as the ones previously sold at costco (unbranded Epics?).



They are pretty cheap, ~$12/pair

Those LOOK a lot like the ones I just got from Cedarville.

In my experience with shoe trees, you get what you pay for, if you buy them locally you might bring in a shoe to ensure fit. It may look silly, but at least you will be certain of fit.

I picked up a few Woodlore cedar shoe trees from Sierra Trading Post a month back for $9.99. I believe they are sold out now but you should check again later when they restock. They look similar to the Cedar Forest shoe trees from Nordstroms posted above.

-In case anyone else is in need of trees on the cheap: bought the ones I posted a picture of off ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...fvi%3D1&_rdc=1 There are more of them, $66 for 6pairs, and you can get 8% cash back with bing, so they are like $10 each shipped.

I've managed to buy about a dozen pairs of these off eBay for under $8 apiece, including shipping direct from China. The trees labeled "size 8-11" fit my 9US shoes about perfectly"”tight, but not too tight.

Those are the ones which were sold at Costco.
Haven't seen them in a while.

I got some trees from this ebay seller and they were pretty decent. They come out to roughly $15 each with shipping if you buy multiple pairs. http://cgi.ebay.ca/6-pairs-Rochester...item8bb2cbfab7

Beware of those Costco ones. They say they will fit sizes 8-11 or some nonsense, but they don't.

They were WAY too tight for my size 8.5 shoes and I took them all back to Costco

Now I use the ones from AAFES post exchange. $8.99 a pair for a cedar shoe tree, but they don't have the full rounded heel.
