Bonsai Shoes is a US based manufacturer of premium plastic bonsai training pots.  All of their products are designed and made in the United States.

The Modern Oval is a sleek looking pot with a modern feel.  This pot features RootZoom Technology.  RootZoom Technology utilizes an air pruning mesh bottom with protective walls for better winter insulation.  The walls are thick and have an inner  insulated air gap (sizes 7-10) to help keep roots protected from heat and cold.

The "shoe" sizes correspond to the number of inches each pot is at it's largest dimension (usually the top).  Size 10 pots are 10" wide, size 8 are 8" wide and so on.

The pot can be used several ways:

1.  Place the pot on a solid surface - Over time the roots will grow through the mesh bottom and populate the area below the mesh.  This will give the tree more strength to grow.  You must cut the roots at least once per year to keep the mesh clear and to keep them from overgrowing the space.  If you allow the roots to grow season to season, the roots will thicken and harden below the mesh.  This will help with growth.

2.  Place the pot on a mesh/grated surface - Over time the roots will grow through the mesh bottom and will hit the air.  The roots will stop growing and "back bud" creating a fine root system.  This is called air pruning.  This makes ideal root systems.

3.  Place the pot on a substrate surface or the ground - Over time the roots will grow through the mesh bottom and will grow into the substrate below.  This will give the tree more strength to grow.  You must cut the roots at least once per year to keep the mesh clear.  If you allow the roots to grow season to season, the roots will thicken and clog the mesh.   This will maximize growth while maintaining a root ball in a small pot.

Some real ingenuity shown in the design.

Really high quality. Free draining. I have a large collection of trees. I just repotted several today using their pots and I have to say im impressed.

Exactly as described. It’s thick walled and made out of PETG filament material. It’s a little rough in some spots where the maker did some cleaning up, but for a training pot, it’s pretty good. For the price I’d definitely recommend.
