Shoe Trees for Trainers? And maintenance storage?

Do you keep driver's from Tod's and the like, with shoe trees? Based on my rough calculations, I could have almost bought a pair of discounted Edward Green for the price of the cedar I've accumulated...

Bonus question: Where do people keep their shoe shining gear? I'm currently using an old Nike box, but have a replacement on the way. Once again, suggestions for cleaning up the clutter in my life are appreciated.

I have a coffee table that is solid with 4 large drawers. I use one of the drawers for my remotes and one for my shoe shine gear and one for my sewing gear (darned Borrelli shirts are always needing buttons resewn on).

I do. Seem to do better with trees. I keep my shining gear in a EG shoe box. I like the shade of green it has.

I even use shoe trees in some of my sneakers, but I'm a little odd

It feels therapeutic to admit that I also have shoetrees in a pair of trainers(sneakers). Like a guilty weight lifted off my shoulders!


However, if I buy too many smarter shoes and therefore temporarily run low on trees, the trainers are the first shoe to be swapped out.
