I'm not very familiar with cigar, and it's already been noted above, but that sure does look closer to #8 than any cigar I've seen before.

I know that a lot of retailers do check shoes but I hardly expect ANY retailer to check new good directly from the manufacturer. When I go to Home Depot they do not open all my packaging and check it before I buy.
Answer: I am not sure that can be fixed. I would contact the retailer and see if they could send them to Alden. I think a lot of the things that people go off on in this thread are very minor but I do not think this is something you are going to get over. Good luck.

Unlike Home Depot, none of these shoes are packaged in impenetrable plastic and cost $600+. Even setting that aside, at worst, the retailer would acknowledge the issue and offer to resolve it.

+1 From that pic it doesn't look like cigar at all. Looks like a child of #4 an #8. It's still a gorgeous boot, I just don't think it looks very cigar like. I guess we'll have to wait until someone gets their order so we can see it in the field.

Def like the shape of the barrie on these.  Looks like cigar leaning towards color 8.

By applying #8 / Bordo / Bordeaux polish to a cigar shoe, would one get a muddled mess or eventual patina similar to that color ^^^ ?nest.gif
