About products and suppliers:

antique shield, also known as shoe shapers or shoe blocks, have three main properties. Firstly, they help the shoes to retain their natural shape. Secondly, by holding the shoes open and by absorbing the moisture within the shoes, they help keep the shoes dry and reduce leather cracking, rotting or mold. Thirdly, they can have a pleasant woody or cedar scent that helps reduce the odour within the shoes. Aiding the shoes in drying also helps with this odour prevention.

Many men own at least one pair of antique shield, although some own several or even one for each pair of shoes. Wooden shoe trees can effectively help with the above functions, with cedar shoe trees being commonly recommended. There are also boot trees for men, which perform the same functions. In fact, shoe trees for boots may be even more important as boots tend to take longer to dry on the inside. They also tend to be more expensive.

Some people also buy shoe trees for sneakers, if they are sneakerheads who love collecting and wearing expensive sneakers. Since they have invested heavily into buying expensive shoes, they are more willing to spend on antique shield to keep these shoes in good condition.

You can even consider stocking vintage shoe trees to cater to people with a more refined taste, who want their antique shield to be well-matched to their premium shoes.
