I think it is a good deal. I believe that they are made by Woodlore, an Allen-Edmonds Company.
FYI. I took advantage of Jos. A. Bank's 50% off sale yesterday and bought a pair of shoe trees at $12.50.

Yes, definitely a good deal. You may be able to get them cheaper here and there, but that is still a very good price for A-E shoe trees. Most commonly they sell somewhere in the $20-$25 range. The Large shoud be fine for your 10.5 Lobbs, especially if that is English sizing.

I would order Lobb lasts meant to fit the Chapels.

Why invest in such a high end shoe and then cut corners on the trees?

I just received some AE tree pairs off ebay myself. Compared to other ones I have (J&M, etc.) - they are better, and cost cheaper.

For your JL though - while they would most likely fit, I'd prefer JL last trees

Cheers
