The recent .com pre-order specified work shoe butt dark rubber Dublin. S&S does not indicate work shoe butt in the copy.

Are the leathers different? There is a big price difference.

Ah ok. Thanks. That probably accounts for the price difference. The S&S boots look great. The .com boots should be very special, assuming there are no f ups.

Kudu
Beaver Fur
Mountain Ram
Unicorn
Crazy horse
Dearborn
Bullhide
Camel

Let's just stop using animal names as color/tannage names. Although I guess unicorn is okay.
Unicorn should be metallic finished horsehide/butt.
Kudu is an antelope though, so that one makes sense as is bullhide being a bull and camel being actual camel right?

"Shinki Camel Latigo Horsehide" isn't camel, Horween's "kudu" isn't antelope, and (I think) bullhide is typically just shrunken grain cowhide.

Kudu: It's only confusing when Alden uses it.

Beaver fur: Really? They looked at the color and the first thing that came to mind is beaver fur? It hasn't been since the 70's that beavers were furry enough to easily characterize their color.

Bah-dum...tsssss.

I'll be here all weekend.

Viberg uses CF Stead kudu and not horween kudu though. Alden uses horween Kudu in the 404 Indy and probably a few other models. I agree though they should call all the Shinki colors by their number on the official chart.

I have some Trickers in Unicorn and DR makes it clear that this is CF Stead aniline dyed Scandinavian Elk hide. It feels way too soft and pliable for any horsehide I'm familiar with.
