Womens patent leather shoes used to be considered more of a spring or summer footwear choice - luckily, in these "anything goes" times, those of us who like a little extra polish, are free to pull on patent shoes or boots whenever the mood strikes us. Sporting a high-gloss finish, patent leather has long been established as leather that is considered uptown and formal. This leather has been given a high gloss; shiny finish which also is virtually waterproof, while still retaining a very flexible texture. Dirt adhering to the coating can be removed with a damp cloth, using a mild soap if needed. Minor scratches and scuff marks in the coating itself can be removed using one of several special-purpose patent leather cleaners in the market. With wear and tear, patent leather will eventually lose its glossy finish, but will still be smoother than most other types of leather, looking almost rubbery.
