    I am sure it would look quite good. I have always liked how this Dover looks and the Nevis should be similar

    Leaves, I know you spoke about posting a weight comparison between your ordinary shoe trees and your travel ones. Have you posted one that i've missed? If not it would be interesting to know, unless it's too much hassle.

    The weight of our normal beech shoe trees size UK 9 is 830 grams.
    The weight of our obeche travel trees size UK 9 are 410 grams.

    So the travel trees are about 50% lighter than our beech trees.

    Hi Leaves, I have been eyeing these beautiful Bonafé for some time ... I am a 9.5UK in Carmina and most UK brands; do you think these would fit in a 9.5 as well and could you kindly confirm the last is not too tight?
    Thanks again !

    The Bonafé lasts are quite generous, especially in the instep. I recommend wearing the same size as on Carmina Rain for this last (Bonafé 2102 last).
