I was actually looking for the shapers that make the boot stand upright for my knee high boots, but saw these and decided to buy them. They're quite nice and work much better than the boot shapers I was planning to get. They are also adjustable in height and can be used to hold ankle boots.
The base keeps the boots from falling over like they would if they stood alone on the floor of the closet, and it's not a solid tube holding the boots up. I am planning to put some baking soda balls in towels into the base of the boot stand to fight any odors.
I just wish I bought 2 more for my ankle boots.

Convenient and effective
I had been dealing with the "shapers" that came with the boots, but this is less hassle. Love being able to slide them right off the boot forms and later simply zip my boots and slide them on the forms.
Although the upright boots look more handsome in the closet, the sole-side-up design prevents the leather/material from slouching into creases. I ordered 3 (good price, too) and I'm glad I did.
TIP: The sturdy, lightweight stand arrives with the top end of each form detached and slipped inside the bottom of each form. When you open the pkg, they could drop out when you lift the stand. Look for a little notch to line up and you'll know you've attached them securely when you push them into place.
By the way, because Debbie Jones in TCS customer service gave me such stellar service this morning, I told her I would write a review of a product I was glad to buy (she did not ask me to), and here it is. :-)

Great for lazy people like me!
These are so easy. I come home; I'm tired; I don't feel like taking off my boots and taking out the storage box to put them in and getting the boot shapers and putting them into the boots, etc.... I used to have all these things, but in the end I always ended up just throwing my boots somewhere into the corner of my room instead and kept telling myself I'd properly store them "soon". Soon never came of coarse. With these I can literally just take off my boots and throw them onto the stands and Boom. They are stored, they are able to air out/dry, and gravity keeps the shaft from flopping around and losing shape and I collapse on the bed and go to sleep. BEST BOOT STORAGE EVER. With my suede boots I do throw a canvas bag over the stand to protect the suede from dust, but that extra step takes less than a second.

I was shopping for boot trees only because I didn't know this product existed; wish I'd thought of it. I had my doubts when I pulled the plastic object out of its bag, but snap one piece into another and you have got the perfect way to store your boots during season. I'll still keep my suede boots in their box to protect them from dust, but I view this as a far more convenient way to store boots so they're easily accessible in my closet and not in an unsightly pile. I'm ordered another boot stand for myself today.
