Red Pebble Grain by Scarpe di Bianco
You don’t often see red pebble grain. You don’t often see red shoes altogether. What I like about this pebble grain by Scarpe di Bianco though is the fact that it makes the red a lot more subtle and thus wearable. Without that grain in place and just being a plain calfskin, it would be a tough shoe to wear. But having it be a grain, for me, makes it a bit easier to swallow. I know that most people would probably still have a hard time wearing it but I think that it would create a nice contrast paired with with more flannelly/heavy cloths. I like that about Di Bianco, the fact that are not afraid to do things that are a bit more daring, a bit more unconventional. A red pebble grain brogue: unconventional, but cool! And what lovely lines on that sole. An underrated brand as I have been saying all along!
