I would normally say the Alden DC captoe, but since you have a ravello captoe, maybe an Indy
Also, reconsider the PTB, chukkas and Longwings - all three are excellent in cigar
I agree. I actually think the chukka showcase the color variations in the Cigar as well (if not better) than any makeup.
It's the cigar captoe boot on Grant last, Alden DC stocks them regularly.

Yep, that's it. Unfortunately it isn't available anymore. You'll have to get lucky and find them used!
I’m based in Europe and I’ve previously purchased Alden directly from the US therefore it’s frustrating that Alden now prevents US retailers shipping product internationally.
It’s not as if the brand is particularly well known here where it is a niche heritage name stocked by a small bunch of indies. I would be surprised if they had the clout to lobby Alden on competition grounds to stop US retailers ship internationally. However I wonder if the policy has come about from pressure from Japanese retailers who do stock Alden in greater quantities and who have to apply penal local taxes to the recommended price. I could see those guys losing out alright to internationally shipped product from the US.
For alternative suppliers, all based in Europe, you could try the following outlets who also have online shops:
The Bureau Belfast
and Present London.
Most offer a limited range of ready to wear styles and some collaborations mostly in US D fit although some E (wide) can also be found. Some are priced in Euro, some in Sterling, unfortunately all expensive unless your location gets you a full VAT deduction.
It is the shoe in bold. It has been discussed recently as well, and Sazon has a pair for sale right now in size 10.5D. I don't know how often Alden DC restocks them, but since they are a special make-up, I wouldn't get my hopes up given the shortages and delays going on these days with such things.
