hmm, it's true. I love my black calf cap toes, but what other shoe would I possibly need in black that fits well in the city-country continuum? Also, I haven't really considered cordovan yet. Maybe this would differentiate enough?

In terms of versatility you can't go wrong with a snuff suede chukka, IMO.
Yes, I do want a snuff suede chukka—probably an Alden flex-welt one to replace my aging and falling apart desert boots, which I wear all the time 7 months out of the year.
I do think a suede long wing or double monk would fill the gap in the fall/winter months with flannels and jeans, though I also understand some believe that suede makes a good complement in summer time…
