Surprise! There are two pairs of these shoes! I couldn’t decide if I wanted the design to be stitched on the smooth side or the fuzzy side of the leather so I’m making a pair of each. Which one do you like best?

    Hi Lisa! From looking at the picture, I would say grain side out works better here; the stitching seems to give inadequate contrast on the roughout. On the other hand it might be just the image, maybe you could compare the pixels with the hide and let us know if this looks true in real life!
    Also, roughout tends to get dirty, but perhaps the color you have chosen overcomes that. I have been doing holsters in roughout, dealing with the soiling by dyeing the muzzle end black, and that seems to work out well.
