Looks like a minor problem with the glazing finish. A sparing application of this will restore the original plasticky luster, if that's what you are looking for. Alternatively, try using some paste wax.
The gentleman with the $10k #4 listing should revise the auction description.
Any customer who would seriously consider such purchase doesn't really need to be remined a million times how rare these shoes are. I assume the seller wants to sell the shoes to someone who appreciates the boots rather than just some sucker.
TheShoeMart, and Alden Shop of SF/DC offer Cigar LWB, chukka and PTB on a fairly regular basis. Call them and check, if not in stock, have your name on their waiting list. Alden of Carmel also offers the Cigar LWB regularly. I think you should also consider Ravello. Cigar could be real dark, depending on the particular batch of hide and stain used.
