This reminds me of waxed calf, which can look and behave like shell and horsebutt. Crockett and Jones and Zonkey Boots regularly utilize waxed calf. Can't say for sure unless handled in person.The boots that I mistakenly thought might be shell arrived.
I have to say I like them more than I expected. Still not 100% sure what the leather is, most likely french calf, possibly horsebutt?
They almost roll more than crease on the vamp which I like.
sadly I think I might have to move them on, they’re a touch snug on the right foot. I often have trouble with my right foot being a bit wider than left. My only other Vibergs 2030 CXL are half a size larger (half down from my US brannock) and fit better.
Here’s how they look with a well worn pair of white oak 501’s.
