I am obsessed with white shoes this spring. I tried on a gorgeous Mary Jane pair from Aeyde (see photo below.) Within one minute of fastening them on my feet, I noticed I had scuffed the supple white leather. Thank goodness the scuff was quickly buffed out, but it got me thinking about high maintenance clothing and accessories. The patina of wear on white leather shoes is to be expected, patent leather doesn’t have this problem. High end shoe cream and light touch with a magic eraser helps. I am usually up for the care my clothing and accessories require- but I think those white shoes may be too high maintenance even for me.
