Patent leather is a huge hit this season! Whether on bags or on shoes (or virtually any article of interest huge designers decide to work on), we are noticing that this material is being used heavily, and why not? It’s sleek, it has a nice finish, and more than that, it’s very easy to care for and maintain! Most women nowadays don’t have much time on their hands, that is why materials such as patent leather are a heaven-sent.
As a response to this trend, Prada is giving us some lovin’ with the release of Patent Bow Ballerinas! These babies are super sleek and so comfortable, you wouldn’t want to take a break in these pretty flats! Who says only stilettos could have all the fun? They haven’t met these pretty patent steppers yet. It even has a cute, contrasting bow which adds a dainty design element to the otherwise streamlined neutral patent background.
With a 10mm heel and a durable, leather sole, get your very own Patent Bow Ballerinas for $595 USD or €470 EUR, available via Prada e-store.
