Shoetrees beech wood
Keep in shape. Shoe tree.
This shoe tree adapts well to the forefoot area of the shoe thanks to the divided front blade. For this purpose, it has a wide, shaped heel that also optimally fills the back of the shoe. The last exerts the necessary shaping pressure in the shoe through two telescopic springs between the heel and the front leaf in moderation, without overstretching it.
The beech wood used is untreated and thus has the ability to absorb moisture well, which shortens the drying time. Unlike the otherwise commonly used cedar, beech wood is odorless, but it can be drizzled with pine oil if you prefer.
What shoe trees do
Shoes belong on shoe trees or shoe lasts after wearing. These not only keep the shoes in shape, but also absorb the moisture that has formed inside the shoe during wear. You can only do the latter if they are made of unvarnished wood. While it is indisputable that shoe trees or shoe lasts belong in every pair of shoes, there are two opinions about when to use them: While some say to put the shoetree or last in the shoe while it is still warm, others advise letting it air out first. If the shoe has become wet, it should in any case first be stuffed with newspaper. Only when it is reasonably dry, the shoe trees come in.
Maintaining and preserving shoes
Hardly any other item in our daily lives is subjected to as much internal and external stress as the shoe with which we tread the pavement every day. It's amazing that a shoe can last as long as a well-made one naturally does. The only prerequisite: regular care, which can be perceived as a chore or a respectful ritual.
