Boot trees

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I remember there was a thread on boot trees, but I can't find it, so pardon my starting a new thread.  I wanted to take some pictures/videos earlier, but was waiting for my new camera (Sony V1.). To original poster: Technically you don't really need a boot tree for chealsea boots, as a regular shoe tree would keep the toes in shape.  However, since I assume yours are not custom, you are using a spring-action tree; when the trees are in the boots the springs expand to their fullest, thus pushing the lower part of the boots without doing anything to the boot from the ankle up --- see Picture 1, which is what would happen after some time.  Besides, don't you feel difficult putting and 'digging' the trees out of the boots? There are boot trees, designed specifically for boots.  As far as I know, most makers have their own version.  I have included some pictures as well as a short video on Lobb's version. The Lobb boot tree is made up of two spring-actioned parts, with a dedicated piece for the heel.  Taking them out is fairly simple (just pull.), and the design that facilitates the pushing-in is a real joy.  Here are some pictures: Inserting Boot Tree
