I got a comparison in the black cap toe oxford thread, link is in my signature.

Great I had a look and think I'll go with the Loake. Now to decide whether to go with Pediwear and get free shoe trees or buy from Herring and get shoe trees from elsewhere (Double Monks?)

Anyone had experience and can comment?

why would you buy them when you can get them for free?

Unless the shoes are on sale you can use the code HSAB with Herring to get free trees.

Well Herring shoes is just a bit cheaper especially when you use their Twitter Promo Code for 10% off (although the September one just ended so might need to wait a while for the next one). Should get the Aldwych down to £167

 

The Pediwear shoe tree isn't exactly free since there's an additional £10.50 shipping cost which brings Pediwear up to £194. I'm not sure about the quality of Pediwear's free shoe trees but they seem to be the Dasco Birchwood Shoe Tree which they sell seperately for £20 (http://www.pediwear.co.uk/dasco/products/594.php). Though with Pediwear you also get a free tie. 

 

I was deciding between Pediwear and Herring because with the extra £27 I save by going with Herring, I can use it on a possibly better shoe tree from Double Monk or Herring.

Be warned decent shoe trees in Australia are obscenely expensive. I would say if you are against shopping in Australia to save maney, then wait until you go to the US and buy them there. Even Loakes are likely to be cheaper and more readily available than they are here (assuming you are visiting a major city) and you will actually be able to try them on. Also you will be able to  pick up decent wooden trees for about 1/3 of what they would cost here.

I must admit to not liking that style of shoe tree as the handle end is too narrow and I've found, based on past experience, that it can put pressure on the inside of the heel cup and push the back of the shoe out of shape a little.

I much prefer the style of shoe tree that has a rounded end, like this model from the Pediwear website:

I am pretty sure pediwear wont' charge an extra 10 pounds if you get the shoes with the trees.

HSAB only works on Herring-branded shoes I think.

Wow thanks heaps, if these are the same as the ones here then that's even better than the 10% off!

Yes it is.

Pediwear's site reminds me of the 90s.
post #38607 of 48486
at least it's easy to navigate, haha.
post #38608 of 48486

Yeah, Pediwear's site looks like it was built in 2001. It's quite cringeworthy. Had my suit fitting at OH today. Need to put some serious cash away.

Foxy do you know of any codes for non shoe items from pediwear?
