Is this boot pretty much the same Alden Cap toe boot Barrie last that TSM sells?

Question about Woodlore Shoetree

 

Does anyone use Woodlore shoetree in Alden shoes/boots?

I just got the woodlore shoe tree. I understand that the woodlores and Alden shoetree are made by different manufacturers.

However, I found that the woodlore has a larger volume at the front part of the tree, even woodlore and alden are both in small size. (for 6.5 to 7.5D)

The woodlore's could be put inside Alden's shoes, but not boots.

Would there be any adverse effect on the shoes, especially on the vamp?

Mist captor boots are on the grant last. That boot offered by tassels is on the Barrie last. The perforated captor boots Leffot offers - the Naval boots are on the Barrie last and are likethe Tassels boots except the captor on the Tassels boots has no perforations.

I use woodlore shoe trees in my Alden shoes and boots as well as Alden shoe trees. Both work just fine. I find what does make a (negative) difference is using trees that are too long (using medium size when the size of shoe calls for small trees, for example) and using the shoe trees that have only a partial heel. These trees affect how the shoe shapes. But I find the. full heel Alden and Woodlore trees in the correct size do their job. I will confess I am less persnickety than many here, so you may get more finely tuneful thoughts about the matter.

Thanks a lot Namor. Thing is, I've been looking at the boot on the TSM site for months now but never purchased because I have a few pair of Rider shell boots with a similar shape. The second I put these on I realized they were winners. I may even have to buy them in black..

cheers

Please excuse indoor lighting. The #8 is the typical Horween eggplant.


Been on this site for a few months and I still feel like such a rookie. I don't think I've ever seen these before. Are they the same height as a chukka? Looks a little taller but could just be my rapidly deteoriating vision. Either way, those are s-w-e-e-t. Nice pick up.

My version of the shell rainbow: Alden "suit worthy shoes", black through whiskey. The cigar shoes are captoes on the Hampton last from Citishoes, hat tip to Shouldaville for posting that they had 10E available (my size)





One version has a black PTB and a ravello loafer, the other has a black NST and ravello longwing. I have held out on balmoral black as I have that in calfskin from Church's, but I may hand the calfskin down to my younger brother and jump into the perf toe...

I think it's been verified that Alden shoe trees are just rebranded Woodlores.

Alcibiades, I appreciate a man with Saturday motivation. You have a very comprehensive and fine wardrobe. Did you say that these were the shoes you are selling to your fellow Alden SF thread followers? Well done sir. Bravo!
