    Is there anywhere that stocks many narrow sizes? I went to the store today and got on the Brannock. It looks like I'm about a 9.5 and between B&C width.

    Thanks much

    The Shoe Mart has a decent selection of C widths on lots of styles, but B widths can be a little harder to come by. If you really need a B, then it's best to stay on the lookout for pre-orders from places like Epaulet and Leather Soul. It may be a long wait, but at least you will get exactly the size you're looking for.

    I noticed the creases of my alden captoes look like they are getting a little dry / distressed. Should I put some wax around those creases to keep them fresh?

    No. Saphir renovateur or venetian shoe cream. Avoid wax on the creases.

    ok, great. What's the method to apply these? Looks like I need to pick up some Saphir. Wonder the chances of a local cobbler carrying it.
