    Florsheim shoe trees are $34.95 not $40. I bought a pair 3 weeks ago. They are half wooden and with a plastic handle. cheers!

    Might hang around there outside checking out SFers in some jeans and t-shirt that evening. Probably will have nothing better to do anyway.

    I do not know which one's you got but I'm 100% sure the ones I got are not half plastic and are $40 at McClouds (have also red on this forum that they are sold for $40 at Florsheim stalls). I did read though they sell plastic ones.

    Heres a link to what they look like. http://www.florsheim.com/shop/style/525.html

    • One Pair of Florsheim Cedar Shoe Trees
    • Full-length, split-toe, spring loaded fit

    Here is a picture of the ones I bought.

    Edit: Just found the plastic ones you were talking about. Here is a link http://www.florsheim.com/shop/style/565.html

    Hi mate, yeah I went to few Florsheim shops in Sydney including the CBD store and the below is the only model they sell in Australia. Its $34.95!! [​IMG] Edit: They used to have the full Cedar at some point which unfortunately they don't carry anymore. Maybe someone in SF will be able to confirm. :)

    Yes I used to buy the full cedar Florsheim shoe trees from DJ. I was told that they don't have them anymore these days.

    Is it becos of the plastic shape or the spring ? How bad can they damage a pair ?
    Sydney its hard to buy things like shoe tree. Plus the price too expensive . You buy a pairs of leather soled shoe at least $300-$400 Plus pair of shoe trees $40 and a polish $8. And maybe topyes another $70 There you go half of your weekly income gone. :angry:

    I have this identical dilemma - to the stage that I have put my C&J's in a bag, got out the front of Rekaris in Lonsdale St. to ge them Topy'd and then wimped out.. I relaase I should have it done, but I love the leather sole on the marble floor at work.
    Isn't England wet and rainy - if so, how do they cope with their leather soled English shoes ?

    I previously posted re a discussion I had with Christian, the store manager - he said that he will match online C&J prices offered by Pediwear et al.

    I can't attend the evening unfortunately, as I am off diving :)

    The issue I've got with price matching is that it doesn't look like many places online actually have stock of many C&Js online. If he's going to match prices regardless of stock levels then that is definitely VERY interesting.

    Yes, that is why i use them.
    Yes, they do work.

    Had them done at Rekaris and quite happy with their service.

    That's what I took him to mean - why not speak to him to confirm? He said I could order anything I liked from the C&J cataolgue

    Sort of in time for the little gathering I guess? Wares from a direct competitor?
    Apparently Rhodes and Beckett are giving $50 e-vouchers for you to spend if you register an online account with them.
    Their squares are $40 so they are pretty much free + shipping.

    Or something...
