Thank you for the kind reply
Approximately 10 years ago I was on a quest for an excellent fitting boot and came to learn Rios of Mercedes had a good reputation. I called a Rios dealer in Ft. Worth, Texas and he suggested I try an A width boot with Milan toe. He sent me the first pair pictured, which was a make up that his store stocked. I found this remarkable because of the several boot dealers I contacted none of them carried B width boots, much less the A and AA widths his store stocked. He did not own the store but was in charge of the boot department and ordered the narrow widths because he was a fitter and knew plenty of men were wearing boots too wide for them , but once they were fit properly they would appreciate it and buy the boots.
Rios of Mercedes is a relatively small company and allows dealers to do make up orders with as few as 6 pairs ordered. The second boot photograph I posted is of a color (chocolate suede) I suggested to him for which he ordered one pair for me and the other 5 pair for his store. You asked about the first boot and I will find out the name for it. It is cow leather embossed to look something like corduroy.
