Ah yes, this is one of the boots that made me first fall in love with Glen Viberg. A beauty. Horsehide seems not to be much available, and if not then ebony latigo might be a good option. A similar look to this darker brown CXL, but likely more durable.
The 2045 is, all told, probably my favorite last, and I am dying for them to start making more models on it.  I like the look of the 310 better (so classic) but the higher heel just doesn't work for my gait.  The 2045 preserves enough of that classic look but with a more normal feel on my feet.   I had a pair of these scotch grain shell 2045s for awhile, but slightly too big, so I returned them.  And they never got back in another pair in my size, alas: Incidentally,...

Four months.
 Cool, thanks.  Look forward to seeing more...
