Looks like Grant or Barrie to me in that pic.
AF53 is Trubalance last with commando sole from Alden of Carmel: http://www.alden-of-carmel.com/Shoes-Shell_Cordovan_High_Lace_Boot_160.htm
I have this boot and it is great. Not really dressy, more for denim and chinos, but a classic. Alden of Carmel has #8 wing tip boots listed, sizes a available may be limited. The Shoe Mart should have #8 wing tip boots as should Alden Madison Avenue in New York. Also consider Grant last cap toe in #8 for a dressier option. Same sources should have something, as well as Alden DC possibly. Grant and Barrie size differently for most people. Ask the retailers and here for advice of needed. Good luck.
