After a few years of parading around in comfy footwear, we’re all ready for something a little more adventurous. Enter - patent leather shoes. The return of patent to the fashion scene this season has been nothing short of invigorating as we bask in the glory of this lustrous, over-the-top material. Whether you’re heading to work, a casual day out with friends, a night on the town or a formal event, there’s a patent shoe out there for every occasion that will up the ante on your day looks and match the buzz of a fun evening. We’ve rounded up our 7 favourite patent looks from our Autumn/Winter 22 range for you to shop today.


We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again - looking professional doesn’t equate to looking boring. These androgynous Oshea Ruby Patent Oxfords are here to inject some fun into your office attire. Watch them transform your favourite black pantsuit into a stylish fashion statement. 


Daytime - Casual

It’s no secret that we love a combat boot, but make it patent and you’ve got us in a trance. This edgy Gama boot is the perfect way to add a cool urban feel to your outfit. 



Daytime - Dressy

Effortless chic is the name of the game with these Ag-21520 ankle boots that are sure to make any outfit feel fresh and directional. Keep the rest of your outfit minimal, leaning heavily on neutral tones, which will allow these boots to pop. 




Comfort but make it fashion - meet the Ohmy Black Patent low wedge-heeled ankle boots. Run your errands in style with these cute patent bootees. 




We’re keeping things casual and comfortable with the Amelia Black sneakers. These stylish sneakers can easily be dressed up for the office with a blazer and tailored pants too.

Tall Boot Edition

For something a little bit sassier and edgier, these knee-high Hayleys in Black Patent are perfect for adding texture to your winter ensembles. 


Night Out Look

Keep things funky, fun and fashion-forward with the AG-21518 boots from Neo Shoes. These square-toed boots lean heavily on 90s nostalgia with a contemporary finish.
