    Hey folks,

    I have a pair of Wolverine 1000 Miles that I love in "Cordovan".

    That being said, I need a belt, and am placing an order at Allen Edmonds, so I'd like to snag a belt at the same time.

    As I am in Canada, stopping in a store in not an option, and I'd like to know what would match up with the boots. Oxblood? Merlot? Chilli?

    From the pics, I'd say Oxblood, but would like some opinions from the pros :)

    Thanks
    John

    Oxblood would be fine. You belt doesn't need to be a 100% match with your shoes...especially with boots like those.

    Yes, matching 100% isn't happening, but with so many red tones in the AE lineup, it's tough to pick the best. Thanks for that.

    I'm placing an order for a Bourbon belt as well to match my beloved Bourbon Strands, since my Manistee no longer fits :(

    If you're self promoting, I don't think it would go well. If you're recommending somewhere you've used etc, I think you're ok.
