    Who makes the best shoe trees for the value? I have some Berluti, Lobb and Tom Ford shoes I need to get better trees for. Is it true that buying the shoes own brand of shoe tree is the best way to go, or is that total bs?

    If they have the same sizing issues as the real epics, I might go with the Nordy Rack recommendation first.

    i like vintage a lot, but they are very rare in the europe.

    ps: the best one, is the one that fits, independable from the brand.

    I'm not sure what are the best shoe trees around. But I know Charles Tyrwhitt have got cedar shoe trees going for £30 (down from the usual £60) a pair at present.

    Too small... I have a few sets of them and they are great for the price but the heel spring is fully extended in 10.5-11 shoes...wish they came in more sizes.

    I love the Bexley because they come sized and as you buy more the price decreases somewhat.

    The best shoe trees are the ones that fit each shoe on a case by case basis.

    My favourites are the Woodlore Ultra and Woodlore Combination.
