Both options are good. The ptb will be more versatile. I have both. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

M75 is the last. Another military last, like the M58 for PTB's. Have those wingtips myself. Fit and look much like the Plaza.

Awesome NST in Whiskey!
Wanted to get a pair of similar one but in Ravello shell from Shoemart but they don't ship over here to Singapore. Anyone knows where can I get a pair shipped to Singapore?

I have the perforated cap toe bal and in my opinion it is too dressy for khakis.

Alden Shell,

So now I've heard both opinions and I don't know which to follow. I'm using #1 below, probably because it seemed easier and more logical.

#1. Remove shoes and insert shoe trees immediately.

#2. Remove shoes and wait overnight (or 24 hours) b4 inserting shoe trees.

Thoughts? And reasons why?

Give them about an hour to let them cool off a bit, then stick the trees in.
