The importance of shoe trees: Must-have if you love your shoes

Only the best for your favourite shoes: Cedar tree shoe tree.

01 Why use shoe trees?

Say “Goodbye” to ugly wrinkles in the leather of your shoes. Shoe trees are an important part of your regular shoe care. As a true shoe lover you better pay attention to it – investing in the right products will pay off in the long-term!

But how can it be that a little piece of wood has such an influence on the condition of your shoe? This is how a shoe tree works: On one hand a shoe tree stretches out the little wrinkles which appear throughout the time you wear the shoe. During the break of wearing them shoe trees can even out the damage which was caused during wearing leather shoes and eventually by weather influences.

Advice: Always buy your shoe trees a size smaller than your regular shoe size. This way you make sure the wood will fit in your shoe and the tension won’t be too strong.

Shoe trees also allow your shoe to get rid of unwanted moist inside the leather. Our Melvin & Hamilton shoe trees are made of cedar wood. Cedar wood absorbs all liquids and evaporates them once outside of the shoe again. Perfect for a shoe you want to keep for years!
