The Seaweed Patina by The Shine

Not only was I intrigued by the photo and the lovely pairing of colors, but what I really loved with the unique choice of name for the patina. All too often do we say ‘Dark Green,’ or ‘British Racing Green’ or rather something very common. But I have never heard anyone use the word Seaweed to describe a type of green, yet I love it! (even though I don’t like the taste of it!). On while I normally would think to put green and brown in the same shoe with such strong contrast, I feel that it came out really nice here. It might be a bit harder in person to wear then in imagination, but I love the look of it nonetheless.

For those that don’t know, The Shine is a Polish patina artist and vendor of shoe care and Yanko shoes with his own patina creations. See the link below to find out more or to buy these shoes
