Pebble grain leather, along with its cousins pin grain, alpine grain, and scotch grain, is not a naturally occuring texture.  It’s a pattern embossed on the leather in the tanning and finishing process, when the leather is rolled between two heated steel plates that have the grain pattern etched on them.  It’s a nice look for a casual shoe, and helps add a little texture which always makes things more interesting.

    I found a pair of black Florshiem in excellent condition at the local Goodwill for five bucks…print looks like ostrich. Best find this week was a pair of Cordovan Allen Edmonds “Leeds”for $10.00…Retail for about $500.00 and only need new heels!
