Those are really a statement boot. What is the other leather? It reminds me of shark, but I don't think it is.

The leather came to fruition from experimenting with a ton of different leathers and looking through dead stock leather hides from Solegarb. If I remember correctly they are actually mountain ram in an almost matching shade that was sanded (just ever so slightly to erase the dye on the raised leather and open the grain a bit), re-dyed, and then sealed. They came out so well in my opinion.

Posing a (semi)hypothetical... 

 

If the price were the same, would you have a brown shell...

 

AE Strand or C&J for BB (under the brand Peal & Co.) wingtip?

 

Both lovely, both fit a similar niche (for me anyway... likely to wear both with chinos/flannels and occasionally with denim), both similarly colored, both similarly priced... is it as simple as taking the one that's normally ~40% more expensive?

 

TIA!

C&J, for sure.  Their cordovan shoes are top notch.  The brown shell Strands are very nice, but C&J is such a solid shoe.

I like AE, but CJ is head and shoulders above. Go for it!

Espresso Rancourt loafers today, these have hit the rotation quite a bit for me this summer. Such a comfortable pair and I am very happy I picked them up.
