It ages perfectly!
I don't agree, 75% of my shoes must be patinas. I feel they age great. Here's my double monks from 2018 in wine shadow. I say they age great.

I am not thrilled with how my TLB vegano leather looks but that's my personal preference. Both are great options and you should not worry about anything. In the end, pick the one that is more visually appealing to you. Patinas add a bit more flair and flamboyance in a way or a special touch.

I'm eyeing the brown balmoral boot that you have on your site pretty hard. There's a UK 7.5 left. I am a US9 on Brannock and am comfortable with a 8.5EEE on Allen Edmonds 65, and find the Meermin Dani in size 8 to be snug. Would the 7.5 work for me?
if you are a EEE it might be a tight fit for you in the beginning. I do have a black balmoral in size 8 tho from my private collection for sale unworn.

I'm not an EEE on Brannock, I just size downhalf a size and go EEE with Allen Edmonds because AE 65 runs long and narrow. I generally go with 9 in other makes. But I think I should probably pass, too risky.

Yes it’s probably wise to do so.

I've never handled one of those. I respect the tradition, but it's not really my style.

I am thinking of getting a pair of Carlos Santos Oxfords. Would I be correct in saying mostly everyone here is pleased with the quality and longevity of their shoes?
