I think the hate was mostly because, initially, some people found it to be challenging to maintain as the method is slightly different from regular calf. We made a guide with StC which you can see below. However, personally I only use BICK4 and it works very well.I think I've posted this many times but the STC wingtip is such a beautiful design. While Russian calf seems to get a love/hate relationship, I absolutely love it and especially here paired with the wingtips. Takes a bit extra tlc but I don't mind it at all.

RUS075 or Russian Calf as it is also known is a hatch grain calf provided by Saint Crispin's. Its special character and grain is ideal for a casual look. Over time Russian Calf will develop a beautiful and characteristic patina unique for each pair and user. To maintain it see these...www.skoaktiebolaget.com
Can I tag on this? @Leaves do you recommend the same care regimen for Utah calf?Great write up and tips @Leaves. In regards to Rus - Can you further elaborate on:
1. In the write up, you mention to use Wax (medium brown) and regular brushing - so when there scuffing, you touch up mainly with the wax as oppose to Pomade?
2. But then in the post above you mention, you only use bick4 - do you find one to achieve better result than the other?

My pair arrived a few hours ago. I can't believe they got here overnight from Sweden... it takes a week to get stuff from California! The difference between ground freight and air freight, I suppose! Really glad I jumped on these, such an incredible make-up.Less orange IRL. Really liking how these came out. Have a few more skins incoming.
