A question of the shoe
Which shoe tree is the right one for you, is primarily a question of the shoe. The only agreement is that you should tighten all pairs in your wardrobe. The signs of aging of the creases do not only affect the classic men's shoes and adorn high heels.
Sneakers, running shoes, hiking shoes, sandals, bootees, Budapest shoes, and pumps scream no less for shoe trees. The luxury model made of untreated red cedar with double and single suspension and moulded heel cap is truly unnecessary.
If sandals or sling pumps don't even have their own heel section, the question of the necessity of a full shoe instep is unnecessary. Rather, in this case, the half-tensioner made of foam fully satisfies the requirements.
However, you should pay attention to the washability of the materials when buying such cheap products. Otherwise, the smell of the foam models could quickly turn into a highly unpleasant problem.
The middle class wins the race
Relevant comparative tests of the recent past have positive results to report. Quality is no longer a question of price. Rather, those shoe trees with the best test results are in the mid-price segment. For a good shoe tree made of cedar wood you only need to pay 25 to 35 Euros.
If you're looking for a cheaper alternative and don't want to spend more than 10 Euros, it's a good idea to look at the material. In other words, in this case, you should choose the brand that offers you a wooden model at this price.
