Thanks for humoring me.I just wanted to see how it feels, i am not sure if the kudu leather is on the stiff side (like hatch grain) or soft side (like highland grain). Also did not know if regular cream and polish could be used, or if a different care regimen was needed. Thanks for the help...
@Leaves @stevent @greasymonkey any word on the kudu leather characteristics? Love the look, but unsure on the feel and care.

This Kudu thing is going to make me break my "no more shoe purchases this year" promise...
How easy it is to be misconstrued, people see/read what they want to (now i know how DW feels). In the spirit of my initial post, i will let your opinion be. As i said, i'm not here to argue. So, good day to you all...
The problem with most SF or sartorial doctrine IMO, is that everything at one point boils down to personal preference, or what you understand to be right traditionally. There are no real facts that dictate what is inherently more formal or casual really. There are always big gaps in logic when rules are applied to menswear. For instance, Manton's statement that the most formal dress shoe would be a pump or plain toe oxford, but he excludes the whole cut oxford from this...
@Leaves Can we MTO a single pair and use the kudu?
New evidence has surfaced, causing me to overturn my original verdict...
