    Why so cheeky?
    Maybe I should have mentioned I'm in Australia too. So these Chelseas were marked down from $1995, and the store sold EG trees at $250! I don't need to go bargain basement, otherwise I'd just go to the local department store and pick up some Florsheim plastic junk. I was hoping there was some kind of happy median that you SF folks could point me too that might get close to matching the quality without costing half what I paid for the shoes. I thought $50-100 would be reasonable to expect a tree that would do it's job without wrecking the heel or shape.

    I see most of the posts on this thread of peoples collections seem to show multiple different styles of tree so there must be something decent out there.

    What is Jab 3? i tried to goggle but nothing relevant showed up. any links to online ordering sites?

    He means Jos A Bank (JAB). I don't know if they have them in Australia, but they're a sort of cheapo house that sells mass market clothes. Some people here go to them for shoe trees, however, as they have a 3 for $25 deals.

    Does Sierra Trading Post deliver to where you are? If so, sometimes they have cedar shoe trees on there for $11, once you punch in their ~35% off DealFlyer codes. Just sign up for their DealFlyer newsletter and wait for the codes to drop.

    Those are all pretty generic, but they serve their function. Cedarville store also has some nicer shoe trees with brass pull knobs near the heel, which make it easier to pull the tree out of the shoe. They also look much nicer when they're in your shoes. You can find those almost anywhere, so if you like them, best to look around and compare prices.

    Why are you wearing something so wintery in the first place?

    Are these boots only for winter?

    I wear boots fairly often....but shearling interiors might be just too warm is what Im saying. Without shearling I think they would be fine just about anywhere.

    You are welcome. Glad to hear you had a positive experience but I'm not surprised. I've been shopping in the store for 20+ years. They have always been friendly and happy to leave me alone to enjoy myself if I say "just looking".

    But things really changed when they moved to the center of town. Now they have a lot more room and have filled it up with a ton of clothes and accessories. They seem to be making a major commitment to offering high-end shoes with EG, G&G, AS and other brands.They mentioned the last time i was there that the lag time between ordering and receiving from the UK can be ages, so new models will continue to come in this Spring and Summer. Jim, the owner clearly loves shoes. Next time you are in there ask his opinion about anything to do with shoes. It will be a fun and lively conversation.

    I'm considering pulling the trigger on his EG Sandringham's in chestnut antique.

    My new Chelsea 202s in Black. I was down down in London yesterday so went to the Jermyn street shop to try on a pair and ended up buying them. I was traveling light so they very kindly shipped them up to me in Scotland. Can't wait untill Monday to wear them in angeer for the first time.

    These are my first pair of Edward Greens as I've allways been a Corcket and Jones man in the past

    Appoigies for the rubbish photo but I'm at work.

    Thanks, gents. That's smoke suede and the 888 last, in case anyone didn't know.
    BTW, sdolina - the Galway is generally considered a 'country boot' from what I gather, hence the more casual appearance - often paired with heavy soles, e.g., the ridgeway, for tromping about the fens and so forth. :)
