Shoe Trees

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I have no idea what to look for when it comes to shoe trees. Are these trees from AE decent for the price?

Alright, well are there any key features I should be looking for when looking for a good shoe tree? Anything that'll set them apart? Cause I can't tell the difference between those and the ones I posted besides the price.

The ones I provided links for are, I think, the best Woodlore have to offer. I think you'd be fine to go with those.

like the OP, I am wondering what makes them better than the link he posted (the AE ones.)

Taller vamp, polished knob?

I use ones from here and they work terrific. Perfect for Canadian shoppers with price and shipping.

Our most popular (and my favorite) is this:
http://woodlore.com/mm5/merchant.mvc...ode=Shoe-Trees
It's much fuller in the vamp and heel. Also, has a double tube, 5 springs. Easy to install and remove.
Ive seen the same tree retailing for $75.00. Only difference is the name plate!

So far the best non-lasted shoe tree I have used is the one made by Rochester. You can get it here http://www.onecedarlane.com/detail.p...&catid=2&sort= They fill out my shoes better and have a full heel - which is essential for me. I have the Epic shoetree and they are great for shoes that it fits but on some of my shoes it doesn't put enough pressure on the side.

Nordstrom trees work for me. $20 ($15 during sales usually)...

My local Nordstroms Rack has them around $13 (10 during a sale). I believe they're "seconds" but the imperfections are very minor (minor discoloring, minute scratches or chips, etc).

Nordstrom trees are exactly the same as Allen-Edmonds split-toe (or whatever they're called) tree.

JAB trees are exactly the same as Allen-Edmonds solid-toe trees and are a good buy at their 50% off everything sales.

Woodlore, who makes all these trees, is a wholly owned subsidiary of AE (if somebody hasn't said this already).

I like the BB ones with he Brass knobs and hardware (not their cheaper non-brass knobs ones) for no particular reason other than the nice hardware, the full heel, and the overall substantial feel and quality of the wood. I usually pick up a couple of pairs during one of their sales. For the shoes I don't really care for, I use the lower end department stores ones that I have lying around.
