Shoe Tree's

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello There,

I wanted some advice on Shoe-Tree's. I know there are a couple different types. Ones that have a full round back and the other that have a pointy one... What is the difference between these?

Does anyone have any advice on cheap shoe trees? I need about a half dozen for now and wanted them to be in the $10-$15 range if possible and made in USA or Japan or Europe. If you look at the first link above you can see somebody selling some Made in USA AE shoetrees for $15. Will these do? Is there a website that sells inexpensive shoe trees?

Thank You!

So I bought a pair of these Woodlores and simple cannot stand them. http://www.woodlore.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=woodlore&Product_Code=M-Combo-Shoe-Tree&Category_Code=Shoe-Trees

As they are not fully lasted they are way small for the shoes, don't fit ANY of my shoes correctly, in fact they only fit about half and have lumps and air pockets everywhere. Quite possible the worst shoe trees ever, I can't believe that they would release anything BUT fully lasted tree's...

When I lived in London I bought a pair of fully lasted Dunklemans at Harrods. http://www.dunkelman.com/viewproduct.php?productid=15 This is the kind of thing I want. Any idea of any online shops in the US that sell fully lasted cedar trees that are NOT made in China? The Epic's are now made in China and I don't like the look or feel of them compared to the Dunklemans I have which were made in England. Any idea's of retailers in the US?

I don't think you can get lasted shoetrees from Woodlore, considering they didn't make your shoes and don't have the last. If you want last specific shoe trees, buy them from the shoe manufacturer, but expect to dish out some cash.

That's not a fully lasted shoe tree in my opinion. The heal is practically a stick vs. being a full one. I don't like the shape at all... I guess I like the "European Style" of shoe tree's better?

I know and I am not thinking of Woodlore. I don't want fully lasted to MY LAST. I want a shoe tree that is fully lasted to a generic last, which is better than the other things. Look at the link to the Dunkleman Albany or these: http://www.thearmourystore.com/shoes/dunkelman-cedar-shoe-tree

This is the kind of thing I am looking for. FULL shoe trees, not with a stick in the back vs. a full heal or some shape that doesn't even look like a shape of a shoe!
