All shoe trees can be made with a hinge, push pull pivot or three-piece construction with wax and polish, and can be hollowed in various styles, finished with a variety of dyes or varnishes, and can incorporate a broad selection of hardware or wooden handle shapes.

Riding boot, cowboy boot, and ankle boot trees are also available.
