Removing shine from patent leather shoes?

Hi

I have a pair of rather shiny edwards brougues. As soon as I wre them once I realised I had made a mistake in getting them. I think they are patent leather and I was wondering if anyone knew if there was a way to 'dull' them a bit.

If not they will have to stay in the wardorbe filed under once in a blue moon.

thanks

The only way to do that is to sell them. The whole point of patent leather is to be shiny. Sorry bud
