    I need like 4-5pairs of shoe trees as I've been expanding my shoe collection. Cheap is good, as that means more money can be spent on shoes. $10 shipped would be ideal, but the best deals I've found are cedarvilles Epic twin tube ($20/pair+$10 shipping) and their Classic Shoe tree ($14/pair+10shipping), so they aren't that exactly cheap. Anywhere have a better deal? And if not are the epics worth the extra $4/pair?

    If you live near a Nordstrom Rack, they stock cedar trees for $9-$13, depending on whether you catch one of their frequent sales.

    I've had great luck with the shoe trees at Nordstrom Rack. I've purchased about a half dozen pairs. One didn't seem to be quite right, but the rest are fine. A very good value.

    Shipping on them is not $10/per pair. http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...ght=cedarville
    meant $10 shipping, total, for an order of 4 trees. I just don't like overpaying for something. Don't live near a nordstrom rack, although I do have one tree from there and it seems just fine. Maybe I'll have a friend pick a few up for me. Its sucks that you can't combine free shipping with any of the tree deals on cedarville

    the florsheim ones are quite good - cedar split toe with a sprung plastic handle. i sometimes use the "coiled spring" cedar trees, but they are too strong for many shoes.

    Be happy someone like cedarville comes on here and lets us know about discounted rates and deals. You don't have to scour the net or rely on someone telling you about it. They make a quality product, you pay for quality.

    You do realize that 4 cedar (which is wood from trees) shoe trees are heavy, right? Plus they have to buy boxes to ship your order and pay someone to package it. $10 is actually pretty fair, even for one pair of trees. If you shipped things on a regular basis you would know this.

    You paid 150pounds for these: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...29#post2888129
    You paid $140 for these: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...69#post2859069

    Yet you complain about $10 shipping on shoe trees. Everyone likes a deal every now and then. But NO-ONE like a cheapskate.

    I wasn't complaining, I even said in my first post that I would probably buy them from cedarville if there wasn't a better deal out there. I think you took my wanting to get shoe trees cheaply a little to personal, was it really necessary to search for things I've bought? I also wanted to know if cedarville's more expensive trees were worth the $5 more than their clearance ones, so clearly I am open to spending a little more if it is worth it.

    That's not complaining?
    I searched because I always find it amusing that people that complain about $1 here and $2 there are the ones who generally spend gratuitous amounts of money on stuff like multiple pairs of boots while complaining about $10 in shipping all the while getting a discounted rate that joe public may not be aware of.

    Costco used to have them, but I can't vouch if they currently do. I picked up 2 pairs of great trees for $10 at one point, almost identical to the Epics. Fantastic deal.

    eh, second line in that quote isn't referring to the shipping, just a general statement. I certainly don't think $10 shipping is unfair, but since they normally have the free shipping code, none of the other deals save much more than just using the free ship code.

    The $10 trees at costco would be perfect, don't think they have them anymore though

    I'm very new to shoe trees and was wondering how important it is to get shoe trees that are "made for the shoe" (if such a thing exists)? Or will just any old pair of trees be better than nothing?
