I always appreciate a unique patina. And while this one is not so out of this world different in terms of skill, it is unique to what you commonly see among Patina artists. The Shine, a Polish patina/shoe shine service that also sells shoes, is becoming for me one of Europe’s more exciting Patina artists. If you gander through the Instagram account you can see the growth of their skill and range of patina’s that they offer and it is becoming more and more exciting to see what they will come up with next but more so to see if they will expand their range of shoes as most of them are simply semi brogues, derbys, wholecut oxfords and your classic double monks. It would be great to see some boots on there, whether it a chelsea or balmoral boot. But I guess with rise in popularity will come demand for new products. so time should tell soon!
