FranceT,

Thank you dropping by, may I know what is the name of this color? It looks wonderful. I would like to know when I am ready to order shoes in Radica calf. In fact SF member @NORE had a pair made in this color, he is selling them now. Here is one picture of his shoes and the link to the others.

This color is now called Rust by our tannery, but various shoemakers use different name for this.

Hi, i've browse through Ilcea new website and found that are two radica types with burnished (Betis Radica) and glazed leather (Radica)

Could you help explain the difference??

Thanks

Betis Radica is a variation upon Betis, that is the "trademark" product of Ilcea, this is a natural calf that can be worked with waxes or anilines during the construction of the shoes, in this case we make the radica effect on the Betis base.

Instead Radica is more like a box calf leather, it's aniline dyed and so it has the glazed effect typical of box.
