My whiskey craftsmans do have a bit of 'orange' tint to them, but I think the color can vary quite a bit depending on the batch so you never know 100% what you're going to get until you receive the boots. I love the color personally. You can always do MTO to open up your options as far as color goes, claret, tan, dark tan... they have about 3-4 suede colors, moc croc, distressed leathers, and some of their "work boot" leathers look interesting for more casual...
