    Hey guys could you please tell me what these are? It says "Made Expressly for Florsheim Thayer McNeil"

    I am guessing that the are Boot Trees ? (if that is even the correct term)

    I dont know if they are shoe strechers, or at least just a common shoe. I guess i should have put this before but they are 17.5 inches long...

    You are correct, they are boot trees. They go in the top part of the boot (the upper) to keep them standing up straight and not developing creases. You would also use standard trees in the boot for the vamp.
