    Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't this Cigar Indy Boot from ShoeMart what you're looking for?

    Edit: Noticed they are not in stock but you can call them too....

    I found a brown calf belt in BB that matches pretty well, my cigars are still pretty new so this will change over time.

    I don't think so--the shoemart version has the storm welt (which I don't want) and no speed hooks.

    Getting to your post late as my boots were at the cobblers. These are the AF84 brown calf wingtip boots on the Barrie last with commando sole from Alden of Carmel I know not everyone is a fan of pull tabs but I just had them added to these boots to try it out. Not an exact match on the leather but I think it came out ok.

    My #8's are evolving beautifully. The color just glows in certain light. Ravello, whiskey, and cigar get all the hype but #8 is truly fantastic!

    Wow, those pull tabs look great, much more nicely finished looking than the stock Alden ones even.

    Commando.
    Might be my favorite sole for a boot. It's as supportive and solid feeling as double-leather, but it has way more grip and cushioning from the rubber.

    Don't underestimate the commando, people!

    Thanks. Cost me $25 at my local cobbler and they tried to match the leather and stitching as much as possible.

    Agreed. I have two boots and a #8 PTB on the commando sole.

    Wow. Those AF84s are great. I didn't think much of them judging from the site's rather sterile photos, but now I'm thinking of getting a pair. nicely done

    Definitely nicer in person than on the AoC site.
