    I'm not very familiar with cigar, and it's already been noted above, but that sure does look closer to #8 than any cigar I've seen before.

    Unlike Home Depot, none of these shoes are packaged in impenetrable plastic and cost $600+. Even setting that aside, at worst, the retailer would acknowledge the issue and offer to resolve it.

    +1 From that pic it doesn't look like cigar at all. Looks like a child of #4 an #8. It's still a gorgeous boot, I just don't think it looks very cigar like. I guess we'll have to wait until someone gets their order so we can see it in the field.

    Top down view is [​IMG].

    Def like the shape of the barrie on these. Looks like cigar leaning towards color 8.

    By applying #8 / Bordo / Bordeaux polish to a cigar shoe, would one get a muddled mess or eventual patina similar to that color ^^^ ?:nest:
