That seems much more naturally done than many in this thread. Though please say you’re not going to wear them laced like that!

Things like this make me very very jealous. That is a great find.

Please let me know if you come across any alligator shoos or other highend shoos. When l saw `isshinryu101' recent photos of his reptile collection l became outrageously jealous and even wished l was him for a while. l need reptile alligator shoos, l need many of them...the more the better. My life won't be perfect until l have a bunch of alligator shoos in my collection, they are as essential as air is to my system...l need alligator in order to live. wink

Re: Eye-catching shoo patinas done to worldclass levels!

I think Santoni has done an excellent job capturing a more subtle kind of patination/ antiquing.  They DO have some eye popping stuff, but I really enjoy the work that's more "subtle".

That said, Bontoni does more "hardcore" antiquing, which i like as well.

I like the patina on that last monk.  It reminds me of the John Lobb "Museum calf" finish, which I find rather fetching.

Re: Eye-catching shoo patinas done to worldclass levels!

What's the best way to get rid of these patinas and make them all black? Some of these are really nice shoes and deserve to be made in a proper colour.

I'm becoming fonder and fonder of black. I'm sure it's psychological but black leather seems to be of a higher quality than a n equivalent colored shoe of the same model. Could it be something to do with colored dyes? Shooey?

I know what you mean. I think it's probably because most brown shoos seen today seem so over-finished and fancy. It's become really hard to find a good decent plain middle brown colour in shoos (in what is a huge irony, Tod's are the now only brand I've seen with the right brown colour).

Berluti DOES offer their shoes in black as well.  However, if you're not into that crazy patination, seems a better idea to shop elsewhere.

Many shoes today lack a very good finish.  I wonder if it's the dying process that has changed or the dyes themselves.  ALSO, often that "antiquing" is done poorly & then the finish looks like crap.

For some reason, many classic shoe colors are gone (or VERY rare). 

I miss this color:

Better staple color shoes than the overly antiqued, I think

There is always room for one or two crazy antiqued shoos just for something different, but l wouldn't want too many in the rotation.

Not a lot of people know this, but if you have a watch with Tritium luminous dials and hands, they will over a decade or more as the radioactivity decays experience a lovely patina effect.

As Sammy Ambrose correctly says, most of those shoes aren't showing a 'patina' they're actually paint jobs and it shows.

I can understand why people like this kind of stuff but I'm not keen. Aubercy do a lot of this stuff IIRC.

Plus, it  breaks formby's shoe law.




Ok.  I have to know - what is the formby shoe law?

Simple.

Shoes should be understated, they should please the eye but no more, they should elicit an admiring glance but not a stare. They should not provoke enquiry.

Jeez I hope obedience to that Law does not become widespread.

Re: Eye-catching shoo patinas done to worldclass levels!

I used to have to do this at work with leather for interiors/furniture, under the guidance of the guy that actually knew what he was doing, it's quite fun, and relatively easy to do at home, I don't believe any or many of the dyes were toxic, I was going to buy some rawhide belts and give it a go at home.

I do like this EG model.  However, for what they are, I think the antiquing on the toe is just a bit much.  It seems that an artificial patina on a shoe like this should be as close to actual (realistic) patina as possible.

1940's NOS.  The Natural Patina on the upper broguing and stitching comes from the color of the brown stitching slowly bleeding (ever so slightly) into the upper leather.  100% natural.
