    I screwed up and used a little neutral polish on my longwing shell cordovan #8s. Now the creases are a powdery white. Any tips on getting rid of white creases?

    Mac method with lots and lots of brushing.

    I went TTS (8.5E) with my first pair of Leydon Chukkas, and although they are very flexible and do stretch a bit, they are a bit snug. For my second pair, I went up a half size to a 9D. I use the 9's for travelling, easy on/off at aiport security, and plenty of room and stretch for feet swelling during air travel.

    I have seen some retailers only sell the Leydon in E width as they say the E fits like a D...

    You have a couple of options.
    1. Ignore it and wear. This may sound like I am being a smart ass but it will go away with normal wear and brushing.
    2. Get a dear bone or use the smooth back of a spoon to rub it out. (Again I may sound like a smart ass but I mean the scratch)
    3. A little similar colored shoe cream. This last step is the quickest but maybe not best fix. I think if you use a little on the scratch you have to use the same amount all over on both boots to make sure the colors match.
    Because of the location and type of footwear I would go with option 1.

    Yeah, this. It may take some time but it will not be as bad as you think.

    That boot just keeps getting better. Ive never seen a pair in person. If I were able to obtain a pair, I woudn't buy any Aldens for a good two months.

    A question to debate, what is the most anyone would be for their "Grail" Aldens?

    You might want to pull that trigger, I might get impatient waiting for my #4 boots.
