Might be broken..
Has anyone seen this pitting before with Shell Cord? Is it going to be a problem?

Don't look at your shoes that close.

It's not something I really care about from an appearance perspective.
This is just my first pair of shell cords and I wanted to make sure it wasn't something that would become a hole, etc. over time.

No worry, it's all good.

Think of it as something distinctive to shell cordovan.
