I'd go for the cigar, personally.
After a guy has done some experimenting with sole/heel dressing, and provided he has some heavy duty sandpaper on hand, altering edge trim is quite easy. For those less adventurous, a good cobbler should be able to help out for a minimal price. Personally, I almost never let edge trim color make my decision for me. If I am going from light to dark, the original edge trim color is close to irrelevant for me. Dark to light is a little trickier .......
