R.M. Williams cedar shoe trees

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone. Time for my first question on the board . I'll be ordering two pairs of R.M. Williams boots very soon, and wanted to check if a) I should also order two pairs of cedar shoe trees (I believe it's money well spent, correct?) and b) are the "official" R.M. Williams trees the best buy for the boots, or can better options be found elsewhere?

Thanks all.

There are better (and cheaper) options elsewhere.

As far as I know, RM boot trees are re-branded Rochester shoe trees. Considering price within Australia, I still believe it is cheaper to order from US suppliers and get some shipped over here. RM is charging quite a bit for their boot trees.

Thanks very much. So I should find some Rochester shoe trees and go for them, or are there other brands of trees that are well regarded?

Owning both Rochester and Woodlore boot tree, I prefer Rochester one for Craftman(B543) boots and Woodlore one for Turn out(B529) boots. Myself, I probably will get Woodlore one for a new order of Macquarie(B555).

This may be a totally stupid question, but is there a certain model of shoe tree to buy?

I just received a pair of Craftsman and because of the chisel toe shape of the boot, wondered if a certain style of tree was needed.

Thanks for the replies.

I found that the RMW trees actually do not fit well in Craftsman boots. The vamp on the tree is too high. Just get regular shoe trees. And since the RMW toe puff is pretty rigid, you don't need to worry much about the toe shape of the tree.

I don't mean to bring up back this old of a thread, but I have been searching around at Rochester's and don't know which to buy for the Comfort Craftsman(B543). Rochester seems to have a few different models. Can someone recommend which work best?

Thanks!

BENEFITS OF R M WILLIAMS RED CEDAR BOOT TREES
Aromatic red cedar grows widely through the eastern United States, spreading rapidly by natural regeneration. In the southern states, where our cedar comes from, red cedar is considered a scrub tree found in virtually every vacant lot and untended field. No rain forests are in jeopardy.
Boot trees help absorb moisture, acids and salt. When boots are wet, insert the trees and dry at room temperature.
Boot trees also help retain the shape of your boots by smoothing out linings and innersoles and by smoothing creases and wrinkles in the uppers.
The regular use of boot trees will make your boots look better and last longer.

BOOT TREE SIZES
S - boot size 5 to 7
M - boot sizes 7+ to 9
L - boot sizes 9+ to 11
XL - boot size 11+ to 13
