Tough call but I'd do the #4 personally... or perhaps the bourbon hatch for this makeup given that the pricing is about the same for shell as for the russian grain.
for me, hatch grain is better on boot or wingtip. I would go with color 4. Just my 2 cents.
Both look amazing and you cannot go wrong either way, If you don't have any other derby on a textured leather, then go for the hatch grain.
I have the Kirby Carmina boots in hatch (Russian Reindeer) and it's a striking leather. Maybe it's just that I'm used to seeing it in boots that it looks so odd in a shoe though. But, it's definitely more striking than a shell - which seems to take years before you truly see the character. I have bourbon shell boots from Carmina and they're very nice but after 2 years the leather just doesn't have as stiking an appearance as some other leathers (including the hatch grain). Not sure I helped any, but that's my opinionNeed help to make a decision! Which of those two?
One is derby hatch grain burgundy on JR sole, and the other one is color 4 cordovan with same sole, both are on 360 welt with soft fudging.
My thoughts exactly! I need to offload 10-15 pairs of shoes/boots, mostly unworn, and here I am still thinking about a shell chelsea. I spent a good 4 hours this past weekend configuring many makeups and was very pleased with myself for not giving in and pulling the trigger last night.

Interesting make up btw. There was an EB GMTO recently which combined large grain and smooth shell and the end result was very cool.
