    I used to get my shoe trees from Leo33, Eppendorf off EBay. Looks like the site has closed, a google search indicates this might be the same place:

    https://schlesinger-hamburg.de/

    Looks like the prices have gone up! For normal shoes the cheaper ones are best (the bulkier ones are good for boots).

    Edit: yes they are indeed the same ones.

    Put them in every night and they should limit the creasing you get on the top of the shoe.

    Charles Tyrwitt ones are decent, best bought in a sale or with a money off voucher which often come through the post once registered.

    Very tempted with this pair of Cheaney's for £120 and possibly darken them if they're too light...

    Snap - I have the same two pair of boots from Debs. I remember they were heavily discounted. I like, and wear both pairs.

    I put a pair of the blue away, brought them out 18 months later and they promptly came apart at the seam at the back. Not impressed.

    Can anyone shed any light on what the fit is like on Loakes?
    Just seen a pair of boots I liked but they didnít have my size in them,nor did they have any other Loakes for me to try on. Iím normally a nine in most shoes, sometimes nine and half but Iíve found a pair online that are a ten. Will they be way out?
    Cheers

    Loakes fit quite large so if you usually wear a 9 you would be better off with an 8 or 8.5.

    Great, thanks Nadeem

    Just realised the ones in the shop were either an 8 or 8.5 but didn’t bother trying them as I thought they’d be too small!! I is a idiot ��

    I have a high instep and find that most lace ups gape at the laces. Are Loakes generous in that area?

    Thatís my experience too, unlike some (but not all) Trickers where I have to go down a half size.

    I wear a pair of Highland Regiment brougue's. They come out to play once a year in November, so that they can be lifted 8 inches and driven in 12 on Horse Guards.

    Bought 1st pair of brogues, Grenson Dylan. Lovely quality, had to go 1/2 size down though. Prior to wearing them yesterday paid the local cobbler a visit who recommended using clear cream which has turned them slightly darker which surprised me. He also suggested after a few wears to put a thin piece of rubber on the front sole part of the shoe. Also shoe trees, are they worth the investment

    Shoe trees question, just go back a few pages on this thread and fill your boots , literally

    I have a pair of Church's brogues, brand new, box and never worn (except to try on in my house). I also have a "voucher" for a factory refurbishment when required (negotiated at purchase). Is there a 2nd hand market for such a thing?
