Last time Cleverley was in town, they showed me samples of this faux pig that is actually a stamped calf.http://www.aacrack.co.uk/annonay-pig-grain-half-calfVery soft and nearly indistinguishable from pig. Personally not a fan of "faux" but could be a good alternative.
I have both and wear the dark brown suede much more often. Goes better with "smart casual" IMO.

This is roughly equivalent to 8D US. I bought these for the summer but they are too small. NIB, but the sole is a little marked up from walking around the house. Asking $350 shipped...
