Do you use shoe trees for Clark's Desert Boots?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I've had them for a year and haven't used trees...thinking of starting now. Are there trees made specifically for them? The upper area at the bottom of my calf seems to be flopping over/loose. Thanks.

I dont use shoe trees with any of my shoes. Archeologists are digging up shoes 1000 years old that could probably still be worn, so i think mine will last my lifetime.

You can use the same method that those trees got preserved: put a lot of mud in them. Oh, and as a by product, after 1000 years, you will have a mold that your bespoke shoemakers can use too.

You will now be promoted to the SF die-hard brigade.

Next task is to learn all the different Italian names for shoulder treatments on suits/jackets.

I'm sorry to hear that - but what about the desert boots?

Made me laugh. "The upper area at the bottom of your calf is flopping loose" ... Do you mean the boot's heel? How would a shoe tree remedy this problem? I think you need to use one of these http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shoehorn before slipping into your boots. It sounds like you're destroying the counter of the shoe.

Shoehorn for desert boots? Meh, you should untie the laces before slipping in. Your feet slides in easily thereafter.

I sort of use tree for my diesel ones. Though I just shove the front parts in to absorb moisture, I don't push in the heel section.
