Aliexpress Shoe Trees?  

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was curious if anyone has tried shoe the shoe trees on aliexpress? They look similar in function to the woodlore epics and I realize that the price may only be bit lower in comparison to what you can get the epics for in the states but living in Canada, I can't seem to find the woodlore epics without having to pay shipping fees that are nearly the price of the trees themselves.

As I understand many seem to think they come from only a few suppliers?

Here is an example of of them:

I haven't tried those, but they look just like the Epic and have good reviews on the site.  I would give them a shot.

In general, I would avoid anything from Aliexpress. For the most part the product photos are ripped from other sources and often end up being very different from what you're thinking you're buying.

 

You can get some decent quality ones off of Amazon Canada here.

I'll second this comment.  Buying from Aliexpress is playing roulette.  Amazon has much better return policies should the product not be as advertized.

Good to know.  Never heard of them and was just going on the look of the trees.
