Yes, Boxcalf is sturdy and classic but Vegano is more interesting and a little softer in my opinion.

Case and point

Chicago: Saint Crispin's Trunk Show – Leffot's Trunk Show – Leffot
Loafer | Made to order paris

You can see the difference. Vegano has more depth, and box is more uniform
The depth is indeed noticable from those pictures. But would it also be noticable between dark brown box and dark brown vegano?

Does anyone have any experience (or photos) of the Artista Chelsea boot? I'd like to see how it looks on foot but couldn't find any photos so far comparing the two lasts.

These are fantastic. I've managed to fight off temptation on the adelaide up till now because there is something I pick up in the produce pictures that I just can't place my finger on but that give me caution, but they look really fantastic on your feet. Now I'm sorely tempted!

I'll probably pick a pair or two. Wondering if it's worth to bump to Artista-level finishing if I'm after hatchgrain leather and city soles? I'd definitely do so when ordering smooth uppers and leather sole. Any thoughts?

The bang for your buck is substantially higher with artista. I'd go Artista. The fact that you can get lasted shoe trees with artista is also a bonus.

I figure now is as good of a time as any to take the TLB plunge. With that said, those who are experienced TLB purchasers do you think I should go with a wide width? I have a pair of Carminas on the Inca (not a wide width) last which are very comfortable for me. I also have Yeossal shoes on the SG65 and DR70 (all wide widths).

I take the same size in Carmina's Inca and TLB.
