Cedar Shoe Tree Benefits
Did you know during a normal day your feet produce over a 1/4 cup of moisture and up to a 1/2 cup when active? Cedar shoe trees can extend the life of your leather shoes up to three times their expected life span. They draw moisture out of try our shoes, re-awaken the shoe's natural structural memory, and prevent the leather from wrinkling and cracking.
Aromatic Cedar Shoe Trees have three basic functions
1) The original shape of the shoe is maintained
Using shoe trees daily prevents shoe upper leather from curling and cracking. Leather shape is maintained by the tension of the shoe tree. NuShoe shoetrees are designed to fit properly and easily to nearly all shoe styles on market. Our spring action and split-toe design allows the tree to fill the natural shape of your shoe.
2) The unfinished cedar absorbs moisture
Feet typically perspire an eighth of a cup of moisture everyday. Left unchecked, this moisture is absorbed into the linings of shoes permanently, thus decreasing the life of shoes. By placing shoetrees into shoes every night, moisture is absorbed into the shoe tree from the shoe.
3) The aroma of cedar deodorizes shoes naturally
Shoe odors are naturally negated with the powerful scent of aromatic cedar.
Split-toe Shoe Tree construction
How they function
The front half of a split-toe shoe tree has a tapered shape like the front half of most shoes. The split down the center makes it possible for the two halves of the front to spread apart when a knob or lever near the heel section is turned or pressed. The adjustable split toe fits a wide range of shoe widths and toe shapes unlike a solid-toe shoe tree.
Equal pressure to remove wrinkles and creases
Our split-toe shoe trees are constructed to exert pressure in all directions when adjusted to fit the shape of a shoe. The equal pressure helps remove wrinkles in the shoe lining and creases that develop on the exterior vamp, which is the upper portion of a shoe that covers your instep and toes.
