White calf you see exists only to make either shoe a little less expensive to sell and significantly easier to maintain, giving up as it does the contrast between shiny leather and matte suede that is the essence of the combination. That concession in turn says all the wrong things about the wearer's priorities. Far better to give up the two-toned look all together, for a shoe made entirely from unlined white or ivory suede, ideally with a red rubber or brown crepe sole, is handsome and seasonally apropriate as well as an uncompromising choice that is significantly easier to maintain.
The white parts must be suede.
