    Genuine Ilcea Radica Calfskin (a.k.a. Museum Calf holds a high seat in the pantheon of shoe leathers. Crafted in Italy, this legendary leather is known for its unique marbling and subtle cloudy appearance. The signature effect is achieved by a light sponging of the leather immediately after an aniline bath, while the skin is still wet. The treatment allows the color to penetrate the hide, as opposed to remaining on the surface. The final effect has eye-catching depth and remarkable sophistication.
    Epaulet & Ilcea Conceria are thrilled to offer this unique pre-order opportunity. From today until Sunday March 20th, you can choose from six colors of genuine Ilcea Museum calf and six styles of in-house Epaulet footwear. This includes the rare tones of Gunmetal, Navy, and Loden! Your shoes will then be made expressly for you and delivered in June/July of 2016. We're asking for a $110 deposit now, and a balance of $135 to $225, dependent upon the style that you choose.


    I've got a bunch of content to post on this thread over the next few days. Feel free to ask any questions on styling or sizing as well!

    The extent of my video skills is a bit lacking, but I shot some quick footage of the leather while I was at the factory. But it's nice to see it laid out and really get a feeling for the color. There's one video for each available leather.

    I'll apologize in advance for my Royalty-Free instrumental hip-hop soundtrack...

    I love the Gunmetal color, but I feel it doesn't work with the tan gum soles. Seems reminiscent of wearing black shoes with a brown belt.
