    I was under the impression that salt water croc was the ultimate, most consistent symetrical and soft? The stuff Hermes use and almost has a monopoly on.

    Soooo, I'm buying the Canterbury boot and am still on the fence with trees. For those with experience with 3 piece trees, are they worth it???

    Price is about $150ish

    Yes. Its a good toy and holds the length very well.

    No, it doesn't conform to the last entirely. Unless you talking about getting the lasted 3 piece trees from G&G for 4x the price.

    My 3-Piece Boot Trees are lasted to each pair. Boot trees have no springs like shoe trees so it's important they are made to the exact last of the boot.

    Per my conversation w/ Tony, G&G doesn't usually make 3pc boot trees for ready made.

    Maybe Nick is special.
