    Yea I use them for my AE and Alden pairs but never have used them for higher end stuff. I use lasted trees for my EG and GG and haven't gotten my EB in yet. Do they work well with the high instep from EB lasts?

    Any thoughts on the Skoak trees or the actual EB trees?

    On my JLP, EG and St. C's I use the lasted trees, but I don't think EB makes lasted trees, or if they do I have not seen them. The JAB's work well in the EB's.

    good to hear! I know that EB does make trees but I'm not sure if they are lasted or not. I have only seen a generic picture of them.

    Are you certain? Skoaktiebolaget informed me that they were not lasted.

    I like how this fella is thinking!


    No, generic, but they can make them lasted if you order a custom last.

    So they are just normal trees but they offer lasted trees if you pay for a custom last?

    Do you know if we can have a custom last made and then order shoes on that last from you with lasted trees?

    Is it true EB can't do calf leathers for the Chelsea boot style? I can't recall who said EB restricts which leathers it uses for that particular style, I think suede only?

    Please confirm.

    Would look awesome on the 804...

    That can't be right. That must be suede turned inside out.

    Incorrect. They won't do Shell Chelseas or Jodhpurs though. We tried this and learnt the hard way.
