Scared about what? The SS article just says you're good as long as you use some form of shoe tree for your better shoes.

Where to buy quality shoes if I have moderate flat feet. Most lasts I have seen around are quite slim.

Actually when you wear your shoe, the movement etc after some time will stretch your shoe as well.leather is also not like a rubberband that can stretch indefintely so dont be unduly worried i guess. If not you size down the shoe treei f your current one u think is deforming the shoe after fitting in.

Well there are certain things to take note when you get trees.

S,M,X,XL sizes are not as accurate as specifically sized (eg 39, 40,41) trees and may stretch out the shoe/heel cup if you're not careful.

The type with the spring and ball may also rekt your heel etc.

Budget?

Better shoes do come in width sizing. General English/American shoes tend to be broader in last shape. Locally got loakes but the range selection brought in not too fantastic. (still no idea on the status of the forum dude trying to bring in ). Best is to brannock your feet width sizing + foot outline and send to an online retailer. Can also try Allen Edmond, Alden, Meermin (Spanish).

If dun mind spend moolah can do an MTO with EEA. If I recall correctly, LLYR and EEA rtw only comes in one width sizing.

Any used T-shirt will do. Don't waste money buying polishing cloth.

I used SAF singlet and orange cloth, since I have e-mart credits.
