    Fabric Textured Leather Shoes?

    I've been looking for a suede summer shoe, and have noticed that a LOT of shoes are textured with some kind of fabric-like texture. Either a pique looking grid, or a striation all over it. Is this a sudden new trend for this year, or have I simply never noticed it before?

    That's not something I can recall seeing; can you link to any examples?

    Also, are you seeing this in person, or via photos? If the latter, I wonder if that's an issue with how the image displays on your device. Certain sub-pixel arrangements can produce odd patterns.

    This is something I'm seeing in person. It's usually for suede or suede-like leather. I'm thinking it's a way to cover up and mask imperfections in the leather, but maybe it's the hip new thing that I'm not aware of. Like most hip new things.
