Patent leather can be a challenging material to pull off– it can over-dandify a smart outfit if you’re not careful, and it can be hard to keep up if you’re the low-key type. Scratches and smudges become a huge issue with the dressier of patent shoes, but these Sebago shoes have a casual feel and a great color combination that make upkeep worth it. If you haven’t liked the flat leather deck type shoes, maybe some shine is what you’ve been after all along. [via limited hype]
