Whether boots or shoes, these are great for high vamps. Most shoe and boots trees don’t have the high vamp that center shoes need. With time the boots look different at the vamp area from the rest of the boots.
These however will prevent that. Aside from the high vamp, they also have a curved toe. The curved toe will easily fit into your boots and maintain the shape.
The sturdy heels and toes are joined together by a brass better piece that holds them securely in place. It is also spring-loaded so that it can squeeze into any boot with a snug fit and not change the shape.
Instead of brass knobs, these have leather loops for handles to make it easy to pull them out especially if they are high boots.

One reason these are very popular is that they are lighter than the shoe trees made of wood and they are very effective.
Many shoe trees are designed for boots and shoes and any for sneakers but these lightweight babies will be great for long trips with many footwears.
They come in packs of five and two, so you will get much more than you will get in value if you get these. These shoe trees don’t come in sizes.
