Regarding shoes, the trouble with light shade leathers is the heavy task of maintaining the colour. The lighter the shade, the more effort. Nicks, cuts and bruises are impossible to cover without using cream or polish darker in shade. I suppose this will only lead to some wonderful patina, but I'd still like to keep the original colour if possible. It is, after all, one of the reasons for buying lighter footwear. If maintenance alone is not enough, these lighter shades are also decidedly casual and will only look more or less out of place with dark fabrics. Light grey and khaki are nice, but the palette is still limited.
