Patent Leather Tuxedo Shoes
A pair of patent leather tuxedo shoes are the finest
formal footwear that one can purchase. The benefits of these tuxedo
shoes are genuine patent leather coverings, stacked heels, leather soles
and linings. The features make this great looking shoe the most
comfortable in the industry.
Patent leather tuxedo shoes are typically available in
popular styles. These styles include traditional tuxedo shoes (rounded
toe), square toe and rounded square toe. The more popular the shoe
styling, the more likely you will see it available in patent leather.
Because formal wear only serves about half of one percent of the
population any given year, manufacturers can't afford to gamble on
making the niche styles in large quantities, thus you'd spend a small
fortune on a single pair. It would be as cost effective as having the
shoes made custom.
Patent leather covering allows for maximum flexibility
in an otherwise less flexible type of shoe. This allows the shoe to form
to your foot rather then form your foot to the shoe. The entire shoe is
more rigid than a typical business-dress style shoe so having leather is
a great advantage to achieve maximum comfort. The patent leather
covering is finished with a coating of glaze that provides the high
luster which patent leather tuxedo shoes are known for.
The linings within these shoes are typically made of
fine grade leather. The leather is soft and provides a comfortable space
for your foot do dwell while you are dancing at that wedding, prom or
black tie event. Sweat and moisture absorption is higher than this
shoe's faux patent variant so you will achieve minimum shoe odor if that
is one of life's challenges for you.
Patent leather tuxedo shoes are usually found in black
while white, ivory and grey / gray are available but a hard item to
find. This is due to the low demand for such colors in finer shoes. You
can have any shoe custom made in any color imaginable. Typically the
cost is $300 for the mold and the completed shoe would be at a minimum
$500. Prices vary from depending on specific design, foot shape,
style, type and quality of shoe covering. If you need white, ivory or
grey / gray, you can save money by simply purchasing the shoe in its
faux patent (synthetic material) version.
Prices for patent leather tuxedo shoes range from
$150.00 to $400.00. At discount formal wear retailers you may find a
pair as low $99.
