I know patent leather is the proper, traditional way to go but do I have any other options?

Some would say that you can get away with a polished pair of black calf Oxfords, but from what I've seen recently, you could wear pretty much anything and 'fit in' with the majority.

I normally wear black patent balmoral captoes, but I think opera pumps are acceptable although I've never actually seen someone wear them. For black tie at private occasions velvet slippers are also ok. Check out blacktieguide to make sure.
