Trying to decide on the ( past GMTO) Balmoral boot in brown calf skin with brown suede, or the Cordovan double monk in #8.
I just picked the the Cordovan cap toe oxford in black (Rain last).
Thank you.

With decisions like this I tend to weigh the style of footwear above the particular materials.

Are there gaps in your rotation that would be better served by one over the other?

Not really, I don’t have a Cordovan monk, I have a monk in brown/tan calf from Carlos Santos. Cordovan AE Dalton #8, Cordovan dress boot from Rancourt dark brown, Santos hand-grade Adelaide in wine/burgundy.
TLB Mallorca in the Artista line, dark brown oxford. And the Carmina Cordovan black oxford (rain last)
