I think I heard of that London one on the style forum. I wonder if you can book appointments and put down a deposit so you can get the resolve done on the same day.

Where does everyone get their high quality shoe trees?

These on amazon are pretty good and they come with a nice shoe horn but when I ordered a few they all varied in size lol... now the price is $40

The Allen Edmonds ones seem good but they are missing a size range and they’re specified as women’s sizes for some reason.

Coakley is a busy guy, I don't know if you could ever do same day lol. But hey, he might have concerige level service.

*high* from what aspect? Quality of Cedar? Lasting? Brass plated hardware? Or just brand name? There's a guy in town here to who sells Saphir shoe trees for $80. I'm content to thrift them all.

After I bought my one set of 6 from Staples last year, and one MW from Marshall's for 10.99, It has now long since been my approach that I pay no more than $7.99 and have found AE's with the full heel, to lasted full, to all kinds of uniquely engineered German/US/Canadian models. It has turned into somewhat of a hobby in and of itself. If you want to refresh the aromatic aspect, a quick sanding with some 400grit or so will expose the raw Cedar making the brand spanking new.

Cedar sellers have never been more excited at the resurgence of mensware accessories. From shoe shine boxes, to the fully lasted boot trees. Truly works of art.

In the states, everybody loves their woodlore trees. They currently have BOGO. If you have a Merika friend, ship them there and wait till they come back home to drop them off. Save the cross-border shipping & taxes. Just have to wait.

vass-shoes.com is doing 25% off. Price includes shoe trees which AFAIK was not included before.

It's 40EUR for shipping and exchange is not favorable but this is still quite a good deal!

Skolyx. They sell the same one everyone sells which is the Woodlore Epic clone. Works nice, and is CHEAP if you make the quantity break. They also sell the same plastic shoe trees you find elsewhere for like $40. Made in Italy, super nice for travel.

Wife suggested I should try to start wearing boots. I am more of a casual person even at work I wear runners. Only time I wear boots was during winter when it is snowing hard when I put on my snow boots and that's about it. Didn't want to spend too much and also didn't want a pair of boots with a lot of break in time in case I don't like. Saw a pair of Dr. Martens 1460 on sale for $120 and also bought a pair from Thursday boots. We shall see how it goes!

I'm a big boot person...love them for all types of weather, and I hate when it gets too hot to wear them. I got quite a few new pairs due to the Shoe Company's crazy clearance sales recently.

I have a pair of Presidents by Thursday Boots. I like the leather and the colour, but they take a while to break in, and the insoles are crazy thin. Literally a slice of foam. I had to cut it out and put some Dr. Scholl's inside them after it flattened, or it would kill my feet. The outsoles are very solid and have zero wear so far after 5 years. Great boots overall, but with the crazy sales at Shoecompany.ca, way too expensive.

My recent purchases:

I am absolutely loving the Stacy Adams. Only thing is they are leather soled, so not great for outdoors.

Thanks! I am actually thinking of returning the 2 pair of Thursday boots and get a pair of red wings moc toe. I am sure Thursday boots is fine but I am looking for something that will last a long time and Red wings Moc Toe caught my eye. Well built, great leather they use. I don't worry too much about the break in period I wore a lot of flip flops so my skin are pretty hard.
