(Un)fortunately, I have purchased about 10 pairs of high end shoes over the previous 6 months or so. It all started here on SF and AAAC with a pair of Vass from an AHarris/GHalmos "sample sale". They now include 4 pairs of Vass, 3 JL (2 prestige), 4 pairs of EG ( RLPL MacKay). Not to mention some Mantellassi's from discostu004. All were purchased at good prices but I've spent on Average about $5-600/pair with the Mantellassi's being less. Now I'm considering more Vass and perhaps St Crispin's. With the exception of the Vass and an RLPL, none come with shoe trees. I've been putting them with Woodlore trees from STP. Is it worth purchasing lasted shoe trees for all these babies? Does it make a real difference or will it just inflame my shoe obsession? How do you do it, Aportnoy and Jcusey?
