The front shoe is the "leading" shoe and takes more of the braking force, the "trailing" - rear shoe has less effect. So the primary (front) shoe will be shorter and the rear longer to try to equalize the load as the car travels forward.  But unless you are going to drive your Crosley like a NY taxi, there will be little or no noticeable difference.
