    Oh well, that makes choosing trees easier if I go down that route. As was mentioned before, I did believe that most G&G shoes are the same general size through the waist, heel and instep, so I guess a round toed shoe of suitable dimensions is likely to work for all shoes.

    The oldschool G&G trees (dark brown) look really, really nice. I wish there was on available in my specific last and size.

    Now only tree that is lasted is deco shoe tree. So you can buy full deco shoe example cooper and get a lasted shoe tree. Or you can take any other non deco shoes. And have Gg make that shoe in deco last and you can still use lasted deco tree. Example getting Sinatra done in deco last and you can buy lasted deco tree. For every thing else one tree fits all. Unless you can find old school mahogany color Gg lasted tree on eBay.

    Same size and same last contemporary is quietly impossible.
    I still recommend you buy g&g shoes tree.
    I assume that your shoes of kn14 last is loafer.
    Hence, ankle part is much narrower.
    If other brand tree stretch the ankle part, this shall be a big problem especially for loafer.
