    I've seen those kinds of things around on ebay before... especially 60s era Carnabetian vintage, but these are clearly recent. I can't decide if I like them or not.

    Bad seller pics can hide a lot (some good and some bad). SO, it was a GRAIN that was in the photos! I had thought that was fine cracks in smooth calf from the pics (as is seen in SO MANY vintage Lobbs). I stand corrected. As with a lot of vintage shoes, Grain leather has proven to be quite durable and long-lasting over time. You definitely made a good call & took the chance.
