Nice boots there.
I have a feeling though, that Carmina's "kudu" might not be actual antelope hides (like the Peabody ones G&G, Meccariello uses). The grain pattern is completely different.
Horween does a few chromexcel variants, each with a slightly different tannage. And these utilise regular calf. One of these is called (somewhat misleadingly) kudu. Which is what I suspect we're looking at here. It does have that slightly matt, oily appearance of pull up leather.
You're right, Carmina and Alden use the bovine "Kudu" from Horween. Definitely Not the same as the Peabody Kudu antelope leather.
