Laste call for the Chukka boot in Chestnut Kudu GMTO. We reached 6, but everyone who's interested can still join!

The final makeup is as follows:
  • Ambly 3-eyelet Chukka
  • Elegant Round last
  • Chestnut Kudu Calf
  • Dark Brown sole edge
  • 3mm leather midsole
  • Ridgeway rubber sole

Those look fantastic! Man, this ebony Utah is really something else. I'm loving the hell out of my loafers. I'm not one to normally admire the way my shoes age, but I'm sorta proud of the gentle wrinkles I've got so far on those loafers. Now I just need to figure out a way to get some wear on my black boots like your brown ones there. The black just doesn't look or feel as 'rich' to me as the brown does, but maybe that's because I haven't worn it in yet.

What you might be seeing is 'bloom' on the leather, this is when the waxes that are in the leather come to the surface. It is a natural process, and some good brushing will restore the natural sheen of the leather. Otherwise, you could try some black wax (not cream), and polish the hard parts of the shoe (toe, heel, and sides of the vamp).

I wonder how a Byron or Halway would look in the oxblood Kudu? Also, this Kudu leather seems to be more nicely finished (the way G&G's Kudu boots appear) than the other versions I've seen, which were far too roughhewn for my tastes. Can anyone comment on this?

Thanks!

Seems like all of the recent Kudu is coming from CF Stead. It's a new Kudu tannage called "Jamaica " with an "embossed and tipped finish". Whatever that means, haha.
