    Yep. Though there's some weird thing with the shipping where you order and then have to make a second paypal payment for the shipping. They are an affiliate so am sure they can answer all relevant questions. There's also a SF discount code in their thread I think.

    Woodlore (AE) switched its shoe tree manufacturing to China mid last year. Retailers with old stock may have some old made in USA ones. I have both, though, and there is no discernible difference. It's the same American cedar used. They're absolutely great and come at a very reasonable price from endless too (even cheaper if you can get them during a 20% off sale).

    NB Had not seen this before, looks like an absolute bargain with $5 shipping. From reviews I've read apparently the lid can be sticky, but whatever, count me in:

    Everything else I have looked into shoe valet-wise costs an arm and a leg + shipping...

    I've been looking for some good shoe trees in Melbourne and was about to purchase from herringshoes. Given the low postage, it seems like a no brainer! All I need to do is decide on which shoes to buy with them[​IMG]

    I'd say get in quick... I don't know how sustainable it will be to ship shoes trees to Oz for $5 / free ;)

    If you are buying shoes from Herring, they usually throw in the trees for free.

    If you have the right discount code or that its part of the sale offer. This worth a look http://www.cedarvillestore.com/p-14-mens-epic-twin-tube-shoe-tree.aspx same tree as Gerry is buying but cheaper and if you go to AAAC use the discount code and you can get them for about $20 a pair. Not sure about postage costs.

    Their shipping within the US is quite expensive (http://www.cedarvillestore.com/t-shipping.aspx) I can only imagine how much international shipping must be...

    That's essentially the problem with shoe trees - they're so heavy that even using a shipping forwarder will be expensive.

    Good to know. I continue to be amazed how companies can ship reasonably bulky / heavy yet low-value things (books and now I learn, shoe trees) half way round the world for free/nominal cost, not that I'm complaining, mind.

    I have some herring shoes, but I plan on visiting the C&J, Edward Green, and John Lobb seconds/discount factories. I'll probably buy a half a dozen, then those that I really don't want I'll sell.

    Sydneysiders,

    Just seen in Enrico Santi in Pitt St, a sale sign. Went in and found that they have several pairs of Loakes on sale, including a nice pair of these 1880s for $195.


    Cheers,

    Eightace

    When you guys buy things from online shops in foreign exchanges what's the best way to pay for your goods with a minimum currency exchange fee?

    28 degrees card or Citi card - both of which have zero FX commissions

    Otherwise you can rack up points on the Citi Select card (if you have one)
