Do shoe trees actually work?

I want to know if they reduce or prevent creasing in leather shoes.

Yes. Use them if your leather shoes are worth anything. Stopping creasing in leather is impossible; shoe trees absorb moisture and maintain the shoe's shape.

this

the notion that they stop creasing is some made up MFA bull shit. Unless your trees are specifically made to fit your shoe, then some kind of creasing is inevitable.

Use them to absorb sweat and maintain a bit of shape. Sand them when the cedar smell has died down

I really like the creasing of shoes; adds character and a personal touch to them.

Yes, I want to minimise the wear marks on the vamps.

Apparently shoe trees are good for this, but I;ve heard from other places that all their really good for is moisture control
