Cedar Shoetrees ($26) help to maintain the original shoe shape, prevent creases and cracking, and absorb moisture from the lining of the shoes. Even though weâ€™re in a society of â€œless is moreâ€â€”especially when travelingâ€”a shoetree lengthens the life of your shoes. Make sure you always pack yours.
SYL TIP: You only need one shoetree. Your shoes are the most susceptible to creasing and cracking right after youâ€™ve worn them due to the moisture that has softened the leather. Once you remove your shoe after a long day, insert the shoetree, and allow your shoes to dry overnight and repeat the process with the next pair of shoes you wear out.
