Hmmm, as I think of the spectrum of shell cordovan, nothing comes to mind that fits this parameter.  I'm interested to hear suggestions as well.

Just a friendly reminder that we are working on a Kudu Indy MTO.  Currently, I am in the process of collecting information from SF members so that Moulded Shoe can collect deposits for the order.  This may take a few days; so there is still time for people to join the order.  This is really a unique opportunity.  To my knowledge, there has never been a Kudu Indy boot on the Modified last.  PM me if you're interested in more information.

Always hard to judge color, but I'd suggest having a look at Carmina's cognac shell.

What about Trickers? I guess Mogano is closer to #8, but I would think they have something like what you are describing.  No?

^^^ That appears to be exactly what you have described.

 

 

 

What about mahogany? Although not currently available, wouldn't that also fit the description?

Just came in today! My first pair of Alden shell cordovan. The Cigar Indy boot! I just wanted to share and thank you guys on the forum for posting such great info. These fit great, and look amazing.

Wish list:
Ravello cap toe boot
Whiskey longwings

I know I'm looking for unicorns, but if anyone spots them please send me a pm. I hope you all have a nice week.

Any thought about what last they are on? I may call tomorrow to ask about them.

The smart money says Plaza. The shape of the shoe is quite similar to the Alden for BB WT Bal on the M-75 last (like plaza).

I think Alden buys all those hides  in such large volumes, they don't have to charge as much for it. I usually stick to Alden for my cordovan needs.

Was going to say this ^^ Carmina's Cognac should fit what you're looking for.

Maybe Carmina cognac could work for you.

Some pairs of the Ralph Lauren Marlow line can have a mid brown color

It is the Plaza last. I found an old classified for exactly that shoe. Also, it looks like the LS attorney shoe which is also on the PLaza.
