    FWIW, the Bass outlet stores sell trees two for $30. I don't know their quality though, I've never tried them.

    I've bought online from Bexley. If you buy multiple pairs, the cost starts to come down nicely.

    bump. I am looking for shoe trees too. I bought a pair from the Johnston & Murphy store here at the local mall here for $26. I need to find a better deal online for my 2nd pair of nice shoes. I have the split ones, which I think work best since they can be used as one-size fits all kinda deal? How long does shipping normally take if i order one from ebay?

    I've been buying Woodlore products and I'm happy with them. I've got a local retailer here I buy from. I even bought one of those shoe valet boxes to store my products and to polish my shoes on.

    Does anyone know dealers in the US that carries shoe tree by specific sizes?

    I am kinda in an awkward position where my shoe size (10 to 10.5 US) falls right in between Large and Medium. [​IMG]

    I get mine from Johnston & Murphy at 2 for $45.

    They seem to be on sale perpetually at this price for I've purchased them now for several years. I picked up two yesterday and the salesman noted that the only purchases I've made from them over the last couple of years has been shoe trees.

    Haha. Nice. I am going to find out if they have a sale going at the local store here. What do you think about the quality of these trees? This was my first pair of trees, so I just bought what was available at the moment.

    I got the Woodmere Epic and they seem nice. I also got some Vogels and they are made in various sizes. They appear higher quality and I use them for my Alden shells.

    Here is a link: http://www.vogelboots.com/product_de...ategory_idno=6


    Do you think $55 is reasonable. They are varnished and look great.

    I've bought dozens of J&M shoe trees over the years. I've never had a problem with them.
