AE Dalton’s - worth the premium for cordovan?

I’ve got a pair of Dalton’s in an older color, I think it was Bourbon or something, and I’m looking to get a new pair. Now that I’m in a different financial situation, I was thinking of splurging for the gorgeous cordovan leather boots. That’s when I saw that now they are offering a color called Chili that from the pictures online looks pretty similar to the look of the cordovan versions. So I’m wondering if they look so similar, is it really worth paying an additional $250 ? Or should I just save some dough and go with the chili color? Are there any other differences in the cordovans that would warrant the price increase? Or are they not really that similar in person?

If you are a 10.5D I’ve got a BNIB burgundy shell Dalton for sale at the same price as a new calf. If not, I still believe shell is worth the premium.

I would totally be there, if that were my size. I’m about an 8-8.5. Thank you for the offer and for the insight though.
