Those look more like the British Tan to me.....
Putting the two side by side, they are very....very similar in color, and both being on the same last, very similar in shape. But the Comipel is different, shell vs CXL, or whatever the British tan leather is. I imagine I could put on a left of one and right of the other and see a major difference, but to just photograph them, they look very, very similar. It's a good thing I have an affection for lighter tan boots.........

Right, the smaller eyelets and speedhooks lead me to believe those are the tan and not the shell boots.

Little maintenance.


My British tan calf cap toe’s tongues both want to go sideways. Towards the lateral side of my foot. Anybody know things I can do for that or is it just a cobbler fix?
I have never found a "Do it yourself" fix for that issue on any brand of boot or shoe, cobbler may be able to fix by some stitches on the opposite side.

I’m not even sure what causes it in the first place. They are laced in the middle but work themselves over.
It’s not that bothersome, I can’t feel it on the foot, I just notice looking down and it’s a bit irritating.
