Q. Do I need a pair of shoe trees for every pair of shoes I use?

A. No. Here's the advice from a recent article in Esquire magazine: "Wooden shoe trees are a good idea. But you need only one pair. Put them in the shoes you've been wearing all day. The shoe, warmed and wet from you body heat and perspiration, will contract as it cools over the shape of the tree and return to its original form. Within an hour or two, the tree has done its job."

What do you guys think?

I use trees in all of my dress shoes. For my sneakers I have a pair of cedar filled bags that I got from Woodlore, they help to keep them smelling fresh, they're not very expensive and I rotate them (bags) through my different sneakers.

A. Yes, factor in the price of a set of trees when purchasing a new pair of shoes.

In our opinion, shoes should always have Cedar Shoe Trees in them when they are not being worn.

Cedar Shoe Trees prolong the life of shoes by absorbing moisture from them, as well as maintaining the shape of the shoes. Regular use of shoe trees can extend the life of a pair of shoes by as much as 30%.

If you really think that you need to use them - one set per pair of shoes.

This might be unnecassarily extravagant but there again someone will think it correct.

Go to Nordies Rack and the the $12.00 special, they are great trees.

In addition to what everyone has said about trees, I believe they help keep the soles flat. More importantly if they have gotten wet.
In the few pairs I do not tree, the soles tend to curve up.
Also, it helps immensely when polishing and caring for your shoes to have them treed.

I just got my first pair of shoe trees last week and I can't believe I waited to long. They help retain the shape of the shoes.

The Neiman Marcus trees are actually just rebadged Rochester shoe trees. You can find them cheaper other places online, just without the "Needless Markup" name plate attached.

I wouldn't be surprised if almost all major shoe companies used the same manufacturer for their trees. of course Rochester shoe trees don't seem to be any cheaper straight from the source than from Neiman Marcus, or any other place I've seen.

The difference I've found in the Rochester trees I bought from Nordys & the Woodlore trees I bought at C21 is the length of the front part. The Rochesters are longer so I use them in my longer sleeker shoes, while I use the shorter-fronted Woodlores for my shapelier shoes.

Should I put shoe-trees in loafers? I recently purchased 2 pairs of AE "Capri" woven loafers; one for my father and one for myself. I'm hesistant to put trees in b/c I'm worried it may over stretch the shoe - being woven instead of single pieces they're probably prone to widen out too much. But I'm not positive on this. What are your thoughts?

I bought some plastic shoe trees for traveling. The weight is negligible.
