 I just really wanted to brag to my coworkers/friends about my shell cordovan Alden's and how special and rare they are, so I bought the wrong size and 'made it work'.
Here's my V, FWIW.  
The quarters don't have to be touching.  It's okay to have a V.  I would not obsess over the severity of the V so much.  If they fit comfortably, then go with it.
Before you know it, you'll be spending $1,500 - $2,000 on Edward Green and St. Crispin.  This is just how it starts out.
You must just have a ridiculous instep.  If they fit well in all other aspects, I would stick with them.
@Portland Dry Goods would love to hear more about improvements that you observed!
Not really into it, personally. For Rancourt, I stick with handsewns (on Reltex sole where appropriate). Anything else and I'd turn to someone who presents a better value.
and the weather!
I'm as impatient as anybody, but just keep in mind that it's not unusual for these things to take a little more time given the culture over there. Also, she probably get here inbox slammed with spam, being that people are always posting her email here. (People write code that crawls the web looking for xxx@xxx.xxx and then scrapes those bits of text and aggregates them. Then they sell the lists of email addresses in bulk to people who want to make giant email marketing...
I think that I probably could come up with 12 shoemakers that "choose not to work with shell cordovan" I think that I could refute each one of your points.  I just don't care to.
