First Round of Dandy Shoe Care x J.FitzPatrick “David” Boot

J.FitzPatrick x Dandy Shoe Care
I have just received word from Alexander of Dandy Shoe Care that the first round of patinas are finished on our collaborative David boot model, which was a new boot for the J.FitzPatrick collection. He was kind enough to take pictures (as he is very good at doing) and shared them with me. As you can see the first round of patinas were quite bold ones but showed some great artistic capabilities by Alexander. And since inspiration is often gained in the form of seeing, I thought that I would pass on the sharing by displaying the ideas of others here on the blog.

While the color choice is a bit too bold for my personal taste on the particular pair, I just love the idea of the multi-colored ‘blotched’ patina. However, I would have loved to see it in different shades of blues and/or burgundies. But I am sure that I won’t be let down and that after seeing this post, someone will go for it! It is after all becoming Alexander’s specialty as I seem to be seeing it more and more in his requests from clients.

Remember, these are all just examples of what can be done. What you want doing on the boot is entirely up to you and limited only by your imagination.

The sizes still left are: UK6 — UK7.5 — UK9 — UK9.5 — UK10 — UK10.5 — UK11 — UK12

**Boots come on a double sole and without metal eyelets (only samples had those). But they do come with speedhooks. As shown on the 4 pairs above**

    Beautiful but how does one care for a shoe with a patina like these?

      thanks Benjamin. Just as any other shoe. These are dyed so their pigment is stronger than polish. That means that you won’t easily change the color of them with polish. A tan wax can be used on most other colots, for the light shading areas. All else can be used as is according to color.
