What is the acronym for Very Active GINAs?

FWIW ......

While not shell, TSM currently lists a Hampton lasted boot - model 44921H, burnished tan calf, captoe.

I think part of it depends on how YOU approach THEM.  And also which sales rep is working.

Guess I was nice enough then or lucky ♧

I would like the forums collective thoughts on the following.  Tomorrow I am going to order a pair of Alden Shell LWB Boots with Commando Soles.  My dilemma is whether to get them in Black or Color 8. 

Currently I own 

 

Alden Shell NST/Tanker Boot Color 8

Alden Shell Chukka Color 8

Alden Low Vamp Loafer Color 8

Peal/C&J Shell Cap Toe Boots about Color 4ish

Hanover Shell LWB (20 years old)  Color 8ish (love them but they are ready for an upgrade to new LWB)

 

Hanover Black Shell LWB (20 yrs. old and kind of small on me, ready for an upgrade, I use these as bad weather shoes)

Allen Edmonds Black Shell Randolph loafer

 

I realize I need a new and quality black shoe or boot and I keep telling myself that common sense should cause me to order this new boot in black shell.  That said, I can't really find a good picture of the boot in black and the pictures I have seen in color 8 are stunning.  I feel as if I will be wasting $700 if I buy the boot in black and that it will be easier for me to find a suitable black LWB on eBay or the SF sales forum for less money.  

Please share your thoughts.

Get the color 8 version. It's a makeup that really shows it off. I'd save black for a dressier boot model like a captoe - DC's on Grant or the AOC version on Barrie. Or a Leffot naval boot. I think you want the color 8 and just kind of feel like you are supposed to throw a black boot in. I don't think this is the time though.
