    Should you use shoe trees in suede shoes?

    I have just ordered 'Handmade Shoes for Men' by Laslo Vass and Magda Monar for £9 on Amazon. It looks good, if a bit of the sort of thing that some people would put on a coffee table.

    is there anywhere to buy saphir products besides the hanger project? $15 ground shipping for 3 jars of reno/cream/wax seems excessive...or i'm cheap.

    Yes, but with suede loafers you don't want the trees to fit too snug. To prevent stretching my suede loafers, the trees are at least 1/2 size smaller than the shoes.

    You're not cheap, it's hard to buy product that costs about $20 each and then pay $15 for shipping. I bought my Reno and other Saphir products from Wingtip. They have free shipping for orders over $50.

    Just another comment, though. After reading about GlenKaren shoe care products, I decided to give them a try. I haven't actually used them yet but going by all the comments, I'll probably only use the Reno on my less favorite boots now.

    Terrific book. I've read it cover-to-cover more than once. Lots of eye candy. too.
