    Hi,

    I am looking for some advice. I am going to send my JL boots for resole and repair back to the factory and have been considering whether or not to include my shoes trees with it.

    For those of you who has sent their John Lobb shoes (or any other brands) back to factory for resole, do you send them with the shoe trees or not?

    Thanks

    Do not send them with the trees, just stuff them with paper. You should get a nice new box back and maybe trees to boot. Make sure you make the package as a return to manufacturer.

    If you want to keep the trees, then keep the trees.

    Yeah, don't send the trees, you'll likely never see them again. And JL trees are not inexpensive.
