Can someone explain this? I have a pair of Whiskey Longwings (Alden of Carmel) and a pair of Natural Chromexcel (Epaulet Shop) both in the Barrie last and size 8D. The Cordovan Whiskey feels a little pointier and a tad looser than the Natural Longwings. Also, why is the welt or sole edge on the Natural Chromexcel a little wider? Kind of wish my Cordovan Whiskey didn't look as pointy and really liking the snug and wider fit of the Natural Longwings. Is there a reason for...

Quick question...should I be getting a small or medium Alden shoe tree for the Ravello Wingtip Boot and Longwing both in the Barrie last size 8D? I was told Medium but someone said that cordovan may stretch overtime. I thought that cordovan doesn't stretch.
I have a Whiskey Longwing and the Ravello Wingtip boot - what's the best cream or polish to use out there for them and should I be using two different brushes for them? Plus, what's the difference between the black horsehair brush and white horsehair brush? Help would be appreciated. Thanks.
