Just posted asking for suggestions for shoes similar to these:


as they are a perfect mix of comfort, materials, and price for my vintage ensembles and dancing.

But I wanted to ask specifically here in this post about black patent leather shoes for formal wear outfits and dancing. I'm looking for a <= $200 shoe with leather sole and rubber heel, probably a smooth design but can be captoe as well. These usually tend to be very expensive for some reason (is the lacquering process really that costly? :))

Any suggestions? Thanks so much!!!

These are a great value and regularly go on sale, which would bring them in the ballpark of your budget:

Ok, I'll be on the lookout for their sales if I don't find anything else in the meantime. Thanks!!! It is funny to me, though, how many of these are right at $400. Again, what on Earth is it about that shine? :)

ITs not about the process or leather, it’s about to stock it and sell slowly.
