    Is it OK to use Cedar shoe trees for my boots or should I get a boot tree?

    My boots don't extend beyond ~10 - 12 holes, and I use standard cedar shoe trees. Engineer style or taller may need a boot tree, but hopefully the real experts will chime in soon.

    I have multiple pairs of Danner boots, 6" height and I have used regular cedar shoe trees for at least a decade. Work great. I use western boot shoe trees for my higher heeled western boots as they have the steeper more pronounced instep profile. For my ropers I just use regular trees.
    One of the loungers here advised me to be careful using cedar trees on exotic leather westerns as some of the hides are not as tough as cow and tearing from the shoe tree pressure could happen.
     
    Short Balding Guy and Bobby Peru like this.
