Can I get some experienced opinions on getting pebble grain leather field boots as opposed to smooth leather? Looking to buy a pair and don't need any additional help sticking out like a sore thumb.Thanks!
Your pebbly thumb will be painfully matte, I predict.
Can you make sense of that?
I'm not sure I have seen these, but a friend had some some DerDau custom boots that were made of calf whose grain or tanning didn't seem to adhere to the standard-- fine grained french calf. The boots always looked as if they have recently been wet or as if she hadn't bothered to polish them that morning.
If I could see a pair of these pebble-grainers in person and polished up, perhaps my mind would be opened.
Thanks for the opinions so far. I didn't necessarily want pebbled boots, I saw them at a local tack store and they were a fair price (on sale). The leather was extremely soft and they just fit really well on my large claves.
