    Just spoke to Massimo Bonafè (Enzo's son) and I got a confirmation that we will try to do a few prototypes in Radica Calf a.k.a. Museum Calf just to see if Enzo will approve of the result. They have not worked with Radica before so it'll be interesting to hear their feedback.

    Is Radica calf a kind of antiqued looking leather?

    Radica is the leather company, museum/misty/cloud calf is the style.

    Ilcea was actually the company that produced radica calf. John Lobb then called it museum calf or other monikers for their shoes, probably just to differentiate it from other shoe manufacturers. Its come to be known generally as museum or misty calf, radica was just Ilcea's version.
