Shagreen has been developed to have a softer hand but it still is not soft enough to make a comfortable shoe. Fendi found a way to incorporate shagreen to give a full intricate detail potency while the rest of the shoe is soft smooth leather. The panel goes on like a bib, it even has a strap that goes around the shaft of the boot to keep it in place. I kind of wish it’s removable for versatility but who says you can’t wear a high impact shoe on a regular basis? Notice the trim around the sole is navy and this burgundy is muted and soft, you will be surprised by how much can be paired without a lot of fuss.
