 @ScottMC That is normal with a lot of shell cordovan that isn't significantly finish-coated by the manufacturer.  If the bumps bother you, use a bit of Reno and then vigorously brush/buff - that should reduce the bumps, especially over time. - RD
Half-Marathon Edition   Shoe Shine Sunday is on the 6 train today - someone (hint: not me) is running a half-marathon! Plus, it's always fun to give the 6 train some entertainment.
