    Normally they don't, the latest pair of boots I received came with 3 piece shoe trees but this is becaused I asked for it, and last time I checked they will discontinue the 3 piece shoe trees. I do know they have their shoe trees made by some other (small) company in Hungary, so perhaps you could mail Vass and see if special boot trees are an option.

    They have switched to spring trees for their standard trees (which costs €30), but you will still be able to order the 3 piece shoe trees at €60 if you want, I think. So they have not really discontinued it, they have just stopped using them theirselves (some problems with availability I thought it was).

    Right now I think you can't order the 3 piece shoe trees, but if you can, be prepare to wait 3-4 times the times it takes a pair of shoes to be ready, I think it's the only shoe company that the trees take much more time than the actual shoe.

    Slickman is correct. IMO the difference b/w whiskey, saddle and cognac shell is very subtle.

    Can anyone recommend a cobbler in NYC that they would trust a pair of JL Paris with if they owned a pair? (I don't own a pair)

    The proper response would be, RTW or bespoke?
