Utah is a very different leather from eg Inca and Scotch grain. This is because Utah is a vegetable tanned leather stuffed with lots of oils. It is buttery soft and develops a light patina over time. Inca, Scotch etc are chrome tanned leathers with a grain print. As @BColl_Has_Too_Many_Shoes pointed out these leathers hardly develop any patina. One could say that these chrome tanned leathers are more hard-wearing but it is my experience that Utah also holds up well in bad weather conditions. Because Utah is so soft it really conforms to the shape of your foot and it also develops rolls instead of creases. In my opinion this makes it look more casual than the other leathers after some wear.
