Any insight would be appreciated

from my experience the plaza last and the aberdeen last fit very similarly

I've come around to the commando sole, I don't wear suits so the informality is a good tradeoff for the practicality.

My first pair of black shell just arrived. I predict that these will develop much better patina/depth than my #8 Chukka boots.

I will respectfully disagree.  I have a pair of the black shell chukka boots and while they are great and look fantastic (i have had them for about 9 months and wear them 2-3 times a week) they really don't look different from when I first got them, other than creases in the leather.

My color #8 cap toe boots are 2 months old and have already developed a fantastic patina and i think will age beautifully as time goes by and will be much richer than the Black Shell.  But enjoy the black shell, it is awesome!

I've had my #8 shell chukkas for almost 2 years. I echo your sentiments about your black, "they really don't look different from when I first got them, other than creases in the leather." My black shells are showing some changes after one wear. Thus my prediction. But I would not have predicted a Cards-Rangers WS, so...

I actually really like the light trim....boots look great, I'm seriously considering a pair of these now.
