There are many reasons for owning a Boot Tree, such as helping a shoe to retain its shape. When a shoe is worn every day, it can become disfigured. As a Boot Tree replicates a shoeâs interior, it becomes stronger. Boot-Trees can also stop a shoe from having a potent smell. Helping to circulate air, odours wonât build up in a shoe.
A Boot Tree can be made out of a considerable number of materials. As well as plastic, Boot-Trees can also consist of wood. The size of each Boot Tree varies. A Boot Tree that is put into a pair of knee-high boots fills it from top to bottom. For other shoes such as high heels or trainers, a Boot Tree is smaller but still has the same effect because air is allowed to circulate. When a Boot Tree is bought for knee-high boots, they can be stood up. Other Boot-Trees can be hung up, such as in a wardrobe. If a man or woman doesnât want their shoes to be scratched, a Boot Tree can be hung amongst their clothes. As shoes are kept firmly in place, they wonât fall out and become damaged.
