    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Few trees will encompass the entire inside of the shoe, save perhaps a few expensive, custom designed trees, matched to their shoes. Maybe.

    In practice - as opposed to in theory - your shoe trees are fine and effective. Don't worry about it.

    Hi,and thanks for the quick reply.

    I see. I thought the shoe's shape nor the creases would be maintained as well with my current shoe trees, but if you say so I will take your word for it.

    I paid about 190 USD (converted from JPY) for the shoes by the way, so while they're not top range, they aren't of the cheapest variety either.

    Hi Star, I sell shoe trees, and I can qualify that what the lady said is correct, they should be tight. But she's selling stuffed turkeys in Easter if she needs to convince you that elbow grease is required to insert them. If the tree is not made in the U.S., it's most likely from China and most likely made for a European audience. This causes obvious problems when a re-seller is trying to marry up the European sizes with US/UK sizes - seldom a perfect fit.
