I believe the price difference is $2 and $50-$80! But when you consider that your shoes cost in the $200-$500 range, it isn't that much, especially since I hear that plastic shoe trees do not maintain shoe leather half as well as cedar ones.

Saw another thread, https://carousell.com/shoesuede/ on carousell looks value. Also looking at ShoeTree Singapore which has really good looking shoe trees, has anyone ever tried their shoe trees?

Haha it really depends on the shoe too. Ultimately, shoe trees are tools to maintain the shoe, so if your shoe costs 20-80 bux, no point buying a super good pair of shoe trees for 30-50 bux as the shoes prolly spoil soon. If you are having shoes that cost in the 100-1000 range then good shoe trees make a big difference, mainly also because the materials used respond well to good care. My father's shoes have been worn for 30 years maintained with a good pair of american cedar shoe trees as well as a monthly shoe care routine!

Here are some good articles about shoe trees:

Depends on how frequently you wear the shoes, or where you store them.
Shoe trees are good at absorbing moisture (wooden ones), some can emit anti-mold oils i heard...

I would say that for most of my shoes, a shoetree is not really necessary. As a lady, I normally buy cheaper shoes, so that I can have more  ;D. But for my husband, who buys quality over quantity, he swears by shoetrees. The most I would use is a charcoal deodoriser
