    whatever.

    to produce a proper boot tree it requires special tasks, which only a few companies in the world fulfill. period

    you cannot produce a lasted tree without the parameters of the original last. period

    no one messes around producing a boot tree w/o these parameters. period

    what's asked for the boot trees and how they are labeled is only relevant for your wallet. period

    this is not the AE thread, where people try to score a 3 + 1 offer at nordstrom rack for their trees, which costs a quarter of a lasted boot tree in total. people can expect more than a half assed information which ends: "per my conversation with...". it doesn't depend on the answers. it depends on the questions you ask.

    if i should be wrong, i stand corrected. period

    I have this one too in Vintage Cherry calf on TG73. I love them but I wear Hove's in Vintage Cherry on TG73 and they look very similar on my feet.

    If you are talking about the ones from G&G (obviously), well then the answer is - "yes" without a doubt.

    I don't personally own any, but a friend of mine has a G&G boot (I think it is the Wigmore) with a pair of trees, and after seeing the condition of the boot, compared to a pair in normal shoe trees, I will definitely spend the extra cash for the boot trees, no question about it.

    If you buying a pair of country boots which are going to be chewed by the dogs, well then the shoe trees should be more than adequate, but if these are going to be fashion boots to be worn with good clothes, boot trees are a no brainer.

    Yes! I bought the Canterbury + the trees from Nick two months ago and the trees fit very well and snug.

    Quite a good way to conceal real "porn" sites in the drop-down tab though!

    Which means I spend more time looking at Vass/G&G/other shoe p0rn than real porn..
