I would expect that the breathabiltiy of the wood would be an asset, and the non-porous nature of the plastic to be an issue. Or, it could not matter at all. Without a proper study it's all just blah blah blah. Plastic is beter than no shoe tree. Though, if you spend more than $200 on a pair of shoes it shouldn't be an issue to spend an extra $10 or $20 for some crappy wood shoe trees (at very least). I don't expect there would be a disadvangtage to plastic when it...
They are a well constructed shoe - doubt anyone can argue with that. The styling is either boring or classic depending on where you sit. Please do not ever wear black socks with brown shoes.
I may fall in with many others - interesting items from a historical perspective, but nothing I would wear. Though, after taking a brief look into your life, I think they work for you.

AE doesn't replace the insole or cork when recrafting, so it won't help fitting it to your foot. Sorry. They do this because generally men are very happy with the way their shoes fit and don't want to re-break them.
I think this is commonly acknowledged as one of AEs better styles.
If it is a department store you may be able to order the shoe online and save on tax. In California that saves you about 10%, which is sort of a sale in itself. There are a whole lot of people in the world that pay retail for everything. Buying something here and there at full cost is not going to kill you.
Tandy is the biggest supplier of leather goods to hobbiests, I believe. http://www.tandyleatherfactory.com/home/home.aspx
Cowboy boots MUST slip in the heel to fit properly. That is how they are designed. If you don't get heel slippage the sizing is incorrect.
This is not ebay. Post prices.
