To be honest, mine still look pretty much brand new.
There are only so many occasions I have for wearing blue suede with red brick sole.

Thanks! Tried to exercise my will power and found out I had none. One pair on the way! First cordovan purchase so I am rather excited.

I just ordered a pair of LW boots made on plaza last in 9D toi be shipped to me out of USA. Alden doesn't have an actual fitting chart so I used the standard Allen Edmond chart and came to a 9D. Most of my dress boots from Redwing to Lucchese are in 8E to 8.5E, do you reckon 9D would be too long or too narrow seeing plaza last has a pointed toe tip? I don't want to look like a clown with long shoes!

For shoes which do you guys reckon is more popular? Long wing or short wing? Why?

 

Another question, what is the right polish/was/paste/cream to use for a colour 8 Cordovan Shell? I always wondered if you were to polish shoes with perforated patterns doesn't the wax/polish get into the holes? How do you get it out afterwards? Is there a right way to do it?

Um, Johnny Walker Blue is not single malt.

 1: long wing, who else does it better?

 2: alden color 8 cordovan paste wax. Works fine with broguing - use an applicator brush.

Ah, gotcha. Sounds like good advice.
