Search button FTW!
Just got a pair of Allen Edmonds wingtips and the lady asked me if I needed a shoe tree and I had no idea what she was talking about. Glad I did a search.
Do you guys recommend any? Obviously cedar, any cheap sites selling them?

Best invention for shoes. They make your shoes last and the real cedar ones keep your shoes fresh.

my dress shoes typically last 5+ years thanks to regular polishing, shoe tree and rubber outer sole.

shoe trees are a must. and like the guy said above me, you lightly sand them for a better scent.Instagram: nickpsomas

Yes shoe trees that are wood are the best ones, and recommended fro all nice dress shoes and these are the benefits of good quality wood shoe trees.
1). Helps preserve the form of the leather shoe and extends a shoes life by 2-3 times
2). The cedar does help make them smell good but the real reason for cedar is to absorb foot moisture that is left over after wearing leather shoes all day,
3). The Cedar also repels moths and other bugs in closets, thus you see Cedar lined closets in nicer homes.
So buying plastic shoe trees will only help preserve the form of the leather shoe but they don't address the moisture issue.
