Shoe trees for sneakers

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
This will sound silly, but how many of you put shoe trees in their sneakers?

Obviously, this is not to have them hold their shape, but perhaps to absorb odor.

I was thinking of putting Epics in sneakers where they will not do any more damage. Incidentally, I had the opportunity to compare them to an Edward Green tree, and they are roughly the size of a UK 8E/F tree, except the wide heel and waist do not taper at the bottom to conform to beveled waists.

It does sound silly.

If it goes on my feet it gets trees. My "retro" ones get a normal tree, more athletic styles I use the type with the spring. And yes it does feel a little silly.

if you want to prevent odor you may want to buy those little ball thingys they sell at champs/footlocker/etc that "absorb" odor and give it a nice new scent. probably cheaper too.

Yeah, I know it's an expensive solution but I have useless Epics sitting here that are dangerous when put in my dress shoes.

IMHO sneakers arent a long term investment so I dont use trees in them. At best they last 5 years and they aren't resolable Some people buy rare shoes as an investment or to collect. but in those cases they dont even wear them, so again, no need for a tree. I have a ton of sneakers too.

Why did you say the epics were dangerous for your dress shoes? Were they too large?

Cedar shoe trees are abit of a luxury for sneakers but you might as well put the epics to use rather than have them lying around.

Too wide at the lower waist and heel; stretched out shoes and made them too loose.

You can always have the waist and heel sanded.
