Hah! I was wondering how long it would take before someone posted this question!
Michael, please post the pics of your cappuccino Leeds the very minute they get delivered!
Has anyone posted any pictures of Leeds in cappuccino? I recall a cappuccino makeup in the Rawlins I believe, but not a Leeds.
Where did you get them for $167?
Yeah, felt that with a staple shoe like that I should have two pairs so that if one is off getting repaired I'll still have a pair of black cap toes. They're also different sized pairs, one is 12D and the other 11.5E. Got them both early on when I was trying to figure out what size I was.
I can't decided which size is more appropriate for me on the 5-65 last (McAllister)
8.5E fits more snugly and securely but the lacing gap is wider than i'd like, whereas 8.5EE feels slightly too roomy in the toebox but has a more pleasant lacing gap.
Both shoes are brand new.
What do you think?

Since they're calf leather, I would expect them to stretch a bit more. My Strand's lacing gap was like your E pair too when I got them, but they were very comfortable so I decided to get them anyway. This is probably the 7th time I've worn them, and this is how the gap looks now:
