Patina and black = no.I really like black shoes. When others wear them. Look much better than brown under a suit usually. But I just cant bring myself to buy them an the colour is just, well, plain black..I do think black shell can have a nice 'depth' though. Give them a good polishing but don't overdo it is my advice.Shell is thicker than calf and more 'robust'. Therefore, imo, its more suited for (semi) casual boots than for elegant dress shoes.
