    Shoe trees are more like $150. you saved money on shoes now use that money to protect thosed chisel toes. Don't treat your $1200 shoes like a pair of Allen Edmonds

    Agree!!!


    The G&G Shoe Trees would be a much better fit.

    Yes, Co-op accepts returns.

    Agree with Namor, don't cheap out on the trees.

    I now have 4 pairs of G&G bc of these sales. What trees do people recommend aside from the G&G ones? Thanks.

    Buy a pair of GG trees and rotate them. Afterall, G&G only has a handful lasts. If you want to skimp, buy some solid toe trees fro
    Wood lore or Brooks brothers (on sale since now too). For the sqaure toe, you need the GG shoes. Fortunately they'll also fit Eg888 and AS54/724.

    Yep, glad to help! I was in the same boat a few months back and thought to give them a call before making the drive up to L.A. They were happy to do the return for me. :fistbump:

    Now a more important question - are you the guy who nabbed the 9.5 UK Langton's from John Lobb? :censored:

    I just "won" a pair of G&G red cherry shoe trees from a forum member on eBay so those are going in my Burnhams. The Antibes, St. Tropez and the Arrans are just getting Woodlore Epic trees in them for now.

    round toe last = round toe tree

    So when they accept a return at Co-Op, do they refund right away or do they just ship them back for me with a delayed refund? I think I read that somewhere after reading your post. If it's a delay, I may just wait until next week to go to Barneys to get the refund straightaway.

    And no, I didn't go after any JL's at the Barneys sale. The only ones I would have wanted were the Jermyn III's and they were sold out in UK 9.5 when I checked.
