Patent. I don't have to shine them.

Matte for me. I can't stand patent leather, looks 'fake' and plasticky to me. Didn't like them when I was in the Army, don't like them now. But that's just me.

I own a pair of each. You'll be the one wearing them so you have decide which looks better for you.

And whether someone "in power" in your local area cares one way or the other.

Personally, it doesn't make my top-100 list.

There are powers that be who dictate that certain shoes can't be worn for reasons other than not being all black?

I don't know about "can't be worn" but "strongly prefer", yes.

I agree with Bob. While some don't say you must wear patent, at least one of my coordinators says "all black shoes either patent or polished to a high shine".

Some assigners don't have enough to worry about.

I have both, but I like the matte version the best. I used to be into the patient leather when they made them for the Converse All-Stars, but that was a phase and I got over them. I like putting on a little shine when I can.

Peace

Patent -- it's 10 bucks cheaper and I don't care how it looks.
