Best shoe trees for travel?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Lugging a set of cedar or G&G trees isn't the most convenient option when traveling.

What are some good lightweight alternatives everyone is using for travel?

Crumpled up newspaper.

I lug one set of trees - but only one.

An alternate would be to stuff the shoes firmly with socks and underwear.

Looking for something a little better then newspaper, socks and underwear. Something lightweight and adjustable for different sizes would be ideal.

After reading all the old threads it looks like I either need to just bring my cedar trees or use newspaper/underwear/socks. Thanks for the help!

1+ on newspaper

this at least mimics the moisture absorbing function a tree would provide. I don't know about undies and sock, esp soiled/used ones...

Frequent traveler here. I typically try to go with only one pair of dress shoes unless absolutely necessary. When I do carry more than one pair, I haven't found that a few nights without trees have caused problems. On occasions when my shoes have gotten wet, I have gone the newspaper route.
