Cool shoe trees

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Has anyone ordered these? I particularly like the O'Malley model. Any thoughts?

I guess I can't tell what product you're looking at. Your link goes to the main page of the site.

I see the Woodlore ones. Are the ones you're talking about somewhere else on the site (as Woodlore are nice, but I wouldn't call them "cool").

Sorry, the link didn't work. Click on shoes and then on personalized shoe trees and you will get to them that way. Cool perhaps is not the appropriate adjective, rather, they are nice and with a high vamp toe and for the price seem like a good deal. Plus you get your name engraved on them. Check out the O'Malley model.

The O'Malleys appear to be the same shoe trees that J&M sells. I buy them for $29 at a local J&M dealer. They're nice, although I think the Allen Edmonds/Woodlore premium models fill out lace-ups a bit better.

For that price, they should come in actual sizes, IMO. They are not spring loaded or split, so how is a tree sized to fit from 10-12 or whatever supposed to really fill out my 10.5 or 11? Otherwise, they do look nice. I wonder if anyone makes custom shoe trees based on a casting of one's actual feet. This would help even RTW shoes mold to fit your feet exactly, even when you weren't wearing them.

Are you talking about these? If so that's not a bad deal, although you can get them at J&M outlet stores for about $18. Just last week the local J&M outlet store started a liquidation sale, and was selling them for about $11 a piece. I bought 3 and wish I would have bought everything they had. Those are nice trees for the price.

Hmmmm I need to find a J&M outlet store. An independent J&M dealer near me sells them (but with the gold knobs) for $29. On a side note, these are about the only J&M products that work for me.
