Maintain your favourite footwear with shoe trees
Shoe trees have been used for centuries to help footwear maintain its appearance. They work by mimicking the shape of your foot when it's inside the shoe, which then preserves its shape. It also stops creases from forming - especially in leather - and works brilliantly for extending the life of your favourite shoes. Here on eBay, you can find a wide range of shoe trees from top brands such as IKEA Dasco.
Wooden shoe trees
Wooden shoe trees are often considered to be a higher quality choice as they are manufactured from solid wood, usually pine or cedar. This material is excellent for controlling odour and also absorbing moisture. Perfect for breaking in new shoes, they also help relieve pain from corns, bunions and other minor foot ailments.
Plastic shoe trees
Slightly less expensive but equally as good quality, plastic shoe trees are made with a spiral spring which keeps your shoes in shape. Fully adjustable and available for both men's and women's sizes, they are ideal for prolonging the life of leather, plastic and synthetic shoes in particular. Excellently compact and lightweight they are great for holidays and business travel too. Plus they're very handy for use when you're cleaning and polishing your shoes for work or an important occasion. Neat, durable and easy to use, plastic shoe trees are a staple for any shoe lover's wardrobe.
Boot trees are usually made of plastic and are specially designed to stretch and hold the shape of knee-high boots in particular. As taller boots are prone to collapsing when not in use, this can lead to creases and weaknesses in the leather. By using a boot tree, you can rest assured your favourite boots will stay in great condition for years to come - they'll look great and be totally comfortable too.
