Strikes me as the type of leather that the more you wear the better they look.

Point is, between TTownMD and dddreess I'm starting to realize I need to add some kudu into my life.

Do you find it any more comfortable than calf?

I don't find this particular Kudu wears significantly different than calf. I did find the one pair I have in my possession to be rather comfortable, but I attributed that to how well the MH71 Last fits my feet. It was a bit snug initially which is generally a good sign but rather comfortable not to long after I started wearing them. I always wear mine three times for about an hour each time before wearing them for any long period of time. This seems to help me anyway. So although there is a texture to the leather it still feels more like regular calf and not as pliable as Scotch Grain or Country Calf.

Hey I would recommend kudu highly very rugged & not as delicate as calf & need less up keep compare to calf etc.
