Although indispensable for the longevity of a shoe, the shoe tree is not the first accessory that comes to mind when buying shoes. So what is the point of a shoe tree? Why is it essential? What size should I choose? This article will answer all your questions.


At Finsbury, we believe in quality shoes and accessories and one of these is the shoe tree. Rightly considered the hanger of the shoes, it should be used systematically for all your pairs of shoes. Made from raw cedar wood to ensure total moisture absorption, for perfect hygiene at all times. Our shoe trees allow you to maintain the leather of your shoes and to absorb the humidity, which will guarantee you a very good quality shoe.  


The shoe tree has several positive interests to keep a shoe in good condition. Firstly, it allows you to stretch the leather of any model (Derbys, Richelieus ...) when you are not wearing them. It will fill the shoe as well as possible and prevent it from deforming. As mentioned above, the shoe tree will also absorb moisture thanks to its wood. Moisture is not a good friend of leather because when leather is wet and not taut, it sags and creates marks that will evolve over time.

The shoe tree helps to limit odours due to perspiration accumulated during the day and to keep the leather fresh at all times.

Finally, the shoe tree protects your shoes from moths, thanks to the raw cedar wood that keeps them away.

To avoid all this, simply insert the shoe tree when you take off your shoes so that you don't lose any of the benefits of this accessory.


The shoe tree replaces your foot when you are not wearing your shoes. You should therefore take your usual size, because too small will not stretch the leather, and too large may deform it.


We advise you to leave the shoe trees on whenever you are not using the pairs.


At Finsbury, we offer a wide range of products for the perfect shoe care. Shoe polish, creams or brushes, all of which will increase the life of your shoes over time.
