At Cheaney, we highly recommend the use of a wooden shoe tree for keeping your shoes in the best possible condition. Shoe trees have many benefits for your footwear, including helping to maintain shape, prevent cracking and the absorption of moisture from the lining of the shoe. When you’ve invested in a high-quality pair of leather shoes such our Oxfords or brogues, wooden shoe trees like these can help ensure their longevity for years to come.
Shoe trees are designed to hold a shoe in its proper shape to help it dry out, correcting and stopping leather from cracking due to moisture. For those looking to keep their footwear in the best condition, our wooden shoe trees are a fantastic choice.
When you invest in a quality pair of shoes, you want to ensure that they last. As our feet produce moisture during the day, shoes will start to show signs of damage to both the lining and the leather upper. The best way to dry your shoes is by using a cedar wood shoe tree within the first hour or so after taking them off. Leave them on the tree for at least 24 hours to ensure they retain their natural shape.
