    Has anyone here used the Shell Plain Toe Blucher for military uniforms?

    This is a great combo with that grey and the antique welt. Good pairing.

    I do this all the time. It's get a little uncomfortable though, when people ask me why I'm wearing a uniform when I'm not actually in the military

    I use ones from Nordstrom Rack in my Indy boots and they work just fine. You don't need high shoe trees or anything. They are mainly used to prevent the sole from bending upwards when the boots are not in use.

    Ime, the Nordstrom trees do very little in terms of filling out the vamp of the shoe and will not even out the creasing between wears. I use the jos a banks trees which are actually cheaper anyway when on 3 for $25 sale

    I thought the only difference with those is that they are not split toe. But that the split toe ones do the same thing since they spread out once inserted. Not true?
