We remember when patent leather was reserved for spring and summer, from dressing up for Easter in classic mary janes to graduating to strapless pumps as we navigated our way through high school (making sure the heel heights did not have us towering over our dates, of course!).
Now patent leather can be worn any season. Still, we’re feeling nostalgic, and patent is so fresh for spring! We cannot think of warm weather and daffodils without picturing our feet in a brand-new shiny pair of black patent leather shoes.
We went shopping at Saks to put together this variety of styles. There is sure to be a shoe—maybe even a few!—for every Parisienne out to update her collection this season. We love a great wedge for wearing to the office and around town, and kitten heels will always be one of our favorite classics. We find the platform style adds surprising comfort, and you can simply never go wrong with a killer pump for any occasion!
