Got my first aromatic Cedar Shoe Trees, but how many do I need ? - Page 2

I would be very surprised to hear of anyone putting trees in their sneakers. Then again, LA Guy hangs his hoodies on wooden suit hangers.

why not? nearly everything in my closet hangs off wooden hangers. Besides I'm sure he has hoodies that cost as much as what some geezers pay for their suit jackets.

I think he said he hangs them on the kind of hangers that are bulky and designed for suitjackets, not just those regular wooden hangers.

At the moment, I have a pair of plastic shoe trees in each of my shoes. They cost 2 dollars a pair from Ikea (Sweden furniture store for those Ikea-less countries) and do a pretty good job in improving the shape of the shoe. I do intend to get some wood trees but have not found any locally (in Hong Kong) and shipping from overseas is pricey.

I almost never use shoe trees. I guess my shoes are far below avarage on this forum, but I have a few nice Ferragamo and Bally shoes (and sneakers), and from what I have read it seems that they are in serious danger of becoming misshaped. I wouldn't like that to happen. I have only one pair of wooden shoe trees, and a couple of cheap, plastic ones. Thus, it looks like l should rather get some more. Are wooden ones really better? Also, is the size and shape of the shoe-trees important? The plastic ones I have do not appear to have any special size, my wife bought them and she said that it was one-size-fits-all.

Good Luck on getting those wood trees. I've been to Hong Kong and stayed on the Kowloon side. At the Peninsula and Intercontinental hotels. I seem to remember some world class shops in the area. I'm sure you're right, but it amazes me that wood shoe trees are not available.

Second Luk-Cha, you can find simple wood trees in Muji. I got a pair after listening to luk-cha. only $140 for the bigger kind.

There are also many shoe stores in Hong Kong which sell wood trees, albeit slightly expensive HKD$400+.

I have seen wood trees in "Lloyds" in Times square ($380), Lane Crawford, the big chain shoe soleing/key duplicating store which are all around HK (wooden $400+)

I went to Muji in Shatin, and they didn't have any. Where is Silvercord? Is that TST? One of the shop assistants said that the TST branch has them. How simple are they, what would be the nearest woodlore/J&M equivalent? Any chance of a photo please? Otherwise I'd just bite the bullet and order them from Grapevinehill.

about 20 pairs of dress shoes - all have trees. it is mandatory. the only time to do without is when i travel and then I carry one pair of trees with me (weight issue). otherwise, every pair except sneakers get trees.

Ditto.

I've lost count how many pairs of shoes I own, but each pair has its own pair of shoetrees. If I buy a pair of shoes, I buy shoetrees for them at the same time.

I like this comment. I feel bad putting woodlore trees in my EGs

I have a dozen pairs of cedar shoetrees which I keep for my favourite shoes ... For other ones I have plastic shoetrees which I use regularly (for Hogan sneakers included)

Oh, and BTW, I confirm the excellent value of Bexley's shoetrees (at 59 EUR for 4 pairs they are really a steal).

Where can I find a decent pair of shoe trees for less?
