thanks SG. I have two pairs of EG trees on order. I just use my Woodlore trees until they come in. Was just thinking to grab a few pairs of Skoaks trees.

Yep, EG trees a fairly impossible to find right now. I got lucky and found an EG RL Lasted tree in my size on Bay. I looked a few times last week, and nothing. I just looked the other day and saw it. It had only been listed for a few days before I saw it. Its in the 888.

 

 

I purchased one on the 202 Last from Leffot a little over a week ago, but the had nothing in my size on the 82\888 Lasts. Leffot really doesn't have many EG trees left right now.

Don't know, but I would imagine the problem exists at the supplier more than it exists at EG and them not getting them to their retailers. Just a guess.

Skoab shoe trees fit better than the new generic lasted G&G trees for me. They fit a little big though in my experience, size 9 Skoab fits 9.5F G&G well. EG I find their trees fit better but woodlore epics work almost as well (90% or so, vamp not filled out as well as an EG tree).

My mindset is if you can afford $1k for shoes you can afford $100-175 for trees. Edit and having no 9.5% sales tax is already covering the shoe tree cost anyways

What do you mean by "generic lasted"?  I'm not understanding why any tree would fit better than a lasted shoe tree.  I have one of the new ones (non-laquered), seems to fit perfectly.

 

I agree with your statements re EG trees.  I have one branded EG trees and the woodlore of the equivalent ones from hanger project are very similar.

The old G&G shoe trees were last specific, for example shoe trees for last TG73 were made to fit that last. New G&G shoe trees are generic in the term that one shoe tree can fit any of G&G lasts.
Here is the example of TG73 lasted shoe trees

I'm fairly certain that the G&G shoe trees I have are lasted for the MH71.  My invoice says "Including G&G lasted shoe trees."  These are the newer unfinished ones.  They were certainly priced accordingly...am I wrong about this?  Is there some new, new version of the shoe trees that I don't know about? 

 

Maybe I'm confused by the terminology, "generic lasted" doesn't really make sense to me.  They are either "generic" or "lasted."

 

Edit:  the trees I have certainly fit like lasted trees. 

Edit 2: my invoice was from May of this year.

Old shoe trees were last specific. For example the shoe trees I have for DG70 last would not fit MH71 lasted shoes. I know I have tried.

That is not true at least the trees I bought from Leffot said each tree is made for individual last and it's not dark color. But I just tried what you said, meaning Tg73 shoe tree on my G&G shoe that is on different last it's not fully filling the shoe out. Not saying you are wrong I am just sharing my experience. For what's it's worth I also emailed soak about it and they replied the new trees are not lasted but they are cut to accommodate the last individually. Meaning TG73 tree is cut & fill tg73 last & so on.
