the 9011 (Black Cherry) and 9013 (Chestnut) are both Beckman boots..

Don't worry about it. There is adhesive in play here as well as the stitching
I bought the 9011 and the Brogue Iron Rangers (8126) at the same time. Have worn each about 10 times. Like them both and don't regret either - but if I had to have only one, I would choose the 9011. My opinion is the leather is a bit thicker and softer. I think they also are a bit more comfortable fit. The Brogue IR's are a bit stiffer and have, I think, a different finish to the leather. I would also venture to say that while the 9011 is surely suitable for work or outdoor use - they have more of a rugged dress boot feel. I think the IR's have more of a work wear feel to them.
Again like them both very much and you can't go wrong either way. Hope that helps a little.

Here in the States, we have to remove shoes for TSA/security somts not much of an issue. I enjoyed traveling through Europe this summer and keeping my shoes on. Note, my Alden's should have a steel shank as well and they did not cause any additional scrutiny walking through the metal detector.
