Damn gyasih, you sure know to pick the right shoes. Those Dark Oak Midford are something special indeed.

Could you please confirm that EG shoe trees are lasted? I've heard both stories. I've also heard that they make one shoe tree for all their oxfords. For the people who have several pairs on different lasts, can you definitely say that the shape of the trees is different?

Edward Green shoe trees, that I have are not lasted. I bought shoes from Brooks Brothers on 82 and 888 last, I received the same shoe trees.

They aren't lasted I believe but fit pretty well. Don't have any shoes outside of 82 last though now

Skoaktiebolaget ones fit much better if you have an E width shoe as theirs are E/F width in 82 / 202 and 888 / 606, although I couldn't fit the size 10 82 / 202 into a 10E 82 Epsom boot.

Leffot sells them as 82/ 888 and 202/606 (in D/E width I believe)

Thank you for your replies.

 

This is what I feared. I think that EG shoe trees are expensive for being generic, yet are you still satisfied with them? Would you recommend them?

 

Are there any shoemakers which still use real lasted shoe trees other than bespoke ones?

Alfred Sargent. Their Exclusive line is a great value IMO.

So, what's the difference between buying the expensive EG trees and some Saphir cedar which cost only around the 40 usd and have the adjusting shape in toe area !? I mean none of them is lasted, why investing that much in EG trees?

I believe Vass does. I only have one pair, but it came with trees that fit perfectly. The description on the store's website (No Man Walks Alone) also states that the trees are lasted.

While the AS Exclusive Line is a great value, the lasted shoe trees do not fit the shoes as I would have expected - theer is obvious space between the shoe tree and the shoe at the vamp area.  EG shoe trees don't have this problem.

G&G - the best RTW lasted shoe trees I have handled (no experience with Vass or St Crispin's), but they are damned expensive.
