The shoe trees you are using are too big for these shoes and is causing obvious stretching. Your quest continues. Have you tried the Epic shoe tree by Woodlore?
How do they look on your feet? I suspect that wrinkle has to do with the nature of the boot (high ankle area) more so than anything else.
I have the correct recommended size of the exact shoe tree Christian recommended. Size L for a size 9D shoe. The boots don't like even the slightest tension on the heel cup. Haven't tried the epic trees yet, perhaps it is time.
Do you push the tree all the way down so that it is touching the footbed? The rear heal reinforcement should help distribute some of the tension.
It seems like a three part boot tree should work - but they are expensive.
I don't know if it makes a difference or no, but I use M woodlore trees in my 9D shoes and boots, but don't have any boot trees.
So you have a boot trees and not just regular shoe trees?
I have no idea how the boot trees look, anyone got pics?
Boot left, shoe right
Boot top, shoe bottom.
Notice the larger vamp support curve on the boot tree.
That boot tree looks HUGE!
Thanks! I thought the boot tree had higher support at the heel, sorry for the mistake.
What is the best color for EG, Dark Oak?
In my opinion, their green calf skin is the most unique they have, certainly worth the premium to have one MTO or RTW
Apologies, best color polish.
I think dark oak is their most versatile next to black.
