J, Steve, Great to have you guys around and posting so much... Waiting for the appearance of trolls to delete...?
Oh, and regarding shoe trees: I happen to think that it is most important to have a tree that is - if not made for - at least matched to the shoe's last. Of course, in the overall scheme of things, the exact shape probably doesn't matter, but do remember not to get them in too large a size. Give the BBs a try.
