Took delivery this morning and straight out of the box their top quality is apparent. Beautifully made and crafted in cedar wood. The girth can be adjusted by the use of a side screw - simply turn the screw to give a wider or narrower fit. However, you won't find any guide to tell you what size to purchase if, like me, you're a half-size. I chose to go down rather than up a size. Glad I did. There's more than enough tension in the double spring to expand to my half-size. I particularly like the finger-grip design of the heel section which allows you to man-handle the shoe trees in and out of the shoes. I own other shoe trees with ring pulls and brass pull knobs but these Seeadlers seem more robust to use. I can't imagine them coming apart as easily as some of my others have in the past. At this price (twenty-three quid, free Amazon delivery) they're a bargain. They keep your expensive shoes looking good, too.
