    Both options are good. The ptb will be more versatile. I have both. :slayer:

    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?

    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.
