Heinrich Dinkelacker Cedarwood Shoe Tree
A Heinrich Dinkelacker cedarwood shoe tree prevents the leather from contracting. Leather is a natural material that can absorb a great deal of moisture. When leather is moist, it becomes pliable and shapeable. When it dries, it contracts again. Without a shoe tree to prevent it, the tip of the shoe bends upward and the creases in the area of the ball of the foot become deeper.
After a day of wearing, give your shoes a well-deserved break by using a last made of cedarwood. High-quality red cedar is perfect for this purpose, as it contains etheric oils that act as antibacterial and antifungal agents.
An ideal shoe tree should always have a fully formed heel, so that it will not deform the rear cap. Our cedarwood lasts are available only in entire sizes. We recommend that you always use the next smaller size of last for half-sizes.
