    The Yuma sold directly by AE is two toned. The Nordstrom version was solid brown. I had mine dyed a darker solid color because they were two toned and it wasn't done evenly. For whatever reason most bison chukka's are often two toned, usually brown and a reddish color, as are my LL Bean Bison Chukka's.

    I'm still in. Thanks for the update! My preference is a bourbon Soho. My size is 9D.

    I'm in as well. Either brown or bourbon, either style, and I am an 8.5E.

    I would be in for either the Evanston or the Soho in Walnut. I think I prefer the Soho, kinda reminds me of the new Harrison. I am a 12 D. Keep me updated on the pricing when we find it out. If it is not outlandish, I will likely be in. And I'm really o.k. with either. Thanks!

    Do you guys think saddle brown Vernons are too light to go with a mid charcoal suit?

    I think a bourbon Evanston with 5 eyelets would be a near perfect shoe.

    Unfortunately even if it was a possibility I don't have the funds atm.

    I'm in too. Still prefer the soho and I'm a 9d too. Prefer bourbon or walnut, but willing to accept a walnut or #8 shell ;)

    That's a little disappointing to know, but the boots are nice enough for the price that I'd probably keep them.

    Any ideas if it's possible for a local cobbler to re-sole the shoes? (It's not listed as recraftable by AE.)

    I've posted better pictures that capture the color of each better, but if you're trying to see how much bourbon and walnut differ from each other, I posted this a hundred or so pages back.

    I'd be happy with the soho in bourbon, but also walnut shell would be really nice as well. :) OK, I suppose I am in for whatever...
