The Epic Shoe Tree is truly impressive. It's European design features an expandable full crown and fully contoured heel with a polished brass knob for ease-of-use.
Grasp the knob while pushing toward the toe of the shoe when inserting or removing the tree from your shoes.

These shoe trees look great and work well. As other reviewers have noted, these run small, and I'm not sure ordering a size larger is the answer. I ordered size large for my 10.5E shoes. The trees maintain the shape of the shoe but don't fill the shoe completely. There is no resistance against the front or back of the shoe. The XL might be too big. Don't know. Read the reviews but didn't follow my gut. Not a tragedy but sub-optimal performance for the price.

These shoe trees are nicely designed and well made but they are smaller than described - particularly in the length. I wear a USA size 12 or European size 46 and I ordered an XL shoe tree - they are too small for my shoes. The cedar wood is very fresh.
