Rochester Shoe Tree Company maintains the New England work ethic and tradition of fine craftsmanship. Today the Company is one of the largest providers of cedar shoe trees and other cedar products in the world. We rely on people, rather than machines alone, to produce a product that shows both care and pride. Our shoe trees are made from select aromatic red cedar, nature’s perfect wood for absorbing moisture and odors. Each shoe tree is painstakingly crafted to give you unrivaled fit and durability. And we stand behind every shoe tree we make with our lifetime guarantee – a promise of quality we have given to our customers for more than 95 years!
Founded by Edmund Baas in 1922 to make hardwood lasts for shoe making we have been in continuous business ever since. Initially a manufacturer of shoe lasts we expanded into the manufacture of shoe trees in 1933. In the early 1950’s we expanded into the manufacture of quality shoe cleaners, shoe polishes, leather protectors and other shoe care accessories. Experimenting with unfinished aromatic red cedar as a shoe tree material we invented the aromatic red cedar shoe tree and have continued to expand our aromatic red cedar offering with a wide range of unique cedar gifts for the home. Our shoe trees are made to precise specifications that are kept up-to-date as footwear styles change.
With a reputation for unsurpassed customer service, our products are usually shipped within 48 hours from our modern distribution center located in Ashland, New Hampshire.
