I have a pair of those harrods shoetrees, they are awful for shoes but awesome looking. I Also have a identical pair for the swedish equivalent of Harrods, NK ( Nordiska Kompaniet).
Yeah, they would presumably be pretty bad for your shoes as opposed to a nice absorbent cedar tree. I bought them for the look but in fact they are available pretty cheaply on eBay.
You know I'm eyeing up that Hardy Amies tie...
If I was a meme guy I'd use florian's lip licker here.
