    I'm sure some others use less expensive trees, as long as they fit that's the important thing.

    This is where going thru the entire G&G maybe helpful. Then again if you ask the question in the thread you may get some responses. The thing is sometimes if you go thru the entire thread you'll may get more info, because one time questions don't always give you as much feedback as something which may have come up more than just once in the past.

    As far as I can tell, the most critical time for inserting trees is the first 24hrs after you've worn the shoes/boots, and when you clean/polish them.

    You can safely swap trees between shoes in the interim.

    Understand, I also like to complete everything at the same time.

    Good on you, they are long and often repeat the same things over and over but there certainly can be some nuggets that are pretty useful at times.

    This certainly has been mentioned as one approach and you may very well be right. Personally I prefer a set of trees per every shoe or boot I own. Whether it's necessary, well??

    But by keeping them in, I figure they'll keep there shape just a bit better, especially since I have a pretty sizeable rotation where some don't get worn quite as often as others.

    I agree with your philosophy and have a pair of trees for each pair of shoes I own. I like to get the lasted ones when available (EG, St. C., JLP, GC) but I do use the JAB ones on my Aldens, Carmina, AE and others.

    Let me see.

    I'm thinking a certain black dial watch with a matching rubber strap.

    Wasn't that a 5167?
