Patina shoes hand coloured


Patina shoes, Goodyear welted.

These shoes have been hand coloured with an interesting bi-colour patina.

Dominique Saint Paul specialises in making patina shoes – that is to say hand coloured.

The shoes pictured are half brogues with what we call a bi-colour patina.

To make patina shoes the colours are applied one at a time, and in this case dark dusky brown over tan.

The dye colours are alcohol based and sourced from Italy.

In fact with is a traditional Italian leather dye colour process that was first used in shoe making over fifty years ago.

The colours fix well and deep into the crust leather.

The all important finishing part of  the process requires slow hand application of creams with a long drying time to let the leather rest. The shoes are then brushed with a variety of waxes including a natural Carnauba wax which is 100% vegetable based.

We make also hand colouring to order in the colours you choose, should you opt for our made to order shoes.
