A Quest For The Perfect Leopard-Print Shoe

24 Sep

Leather-print shoes are everywhere. They’re the new neutral shoe this season. I really want a pair of leather-print heels, but I keep finding ones that aren’t quite the perfect pair. Some are a little cheesy, some are cheap looking, and some are way too expensive.

I like the Ashby Calf Hair High Heel Shoes from Lands End for $119. Of course, they’re no longer available in my size.

Loft has a couple different leopard-print pumps. The first, the Penelope Animal Print Patent Pointy Toe Pumps for $79.50 are nice. I like the cap toe. But they’re not quite what I’m looking for.

The second pair at Loft, the Animal Print Faye Bow Heels are less expensive- 40% off $69.99. I don’t like them as much; I think the bow makes them look a little bit dowdy.

A pair of the Nine West Flax are $79 at Piperlime. There’s nothing wrong with them. In fact, they’re cute. But they just don’t get me excited.

Ann Taylor has these gorgeous patent 2 1/2 inch leopard-print heels. They’re also available with a 3 1/4 inch heel, which is uncomfortably high for me. They are currently on sale for 30% of their regular price of $168 with the code 30FALL. [This isn’t sponsored. I found the code on Ann Taylor’s website.]

This last pair, the Ann Taylor Perfect Animal Print Patent Leather Kitten Heels are my favorite. Looking at them makes my heart sing a bit.

Are you into leopard-print this Fall? Have you found a pair you like better than the ones I’ve selected for this post?

    I’m not even kidding you, I slipped into my leopard print wedges right before I read this post! Mine are by Me Too, but I bought them at TJ Maxx so I’m sure that means they’re last year’s style…because I can’t find them anywhere to link. I LOVE them. They are an easy way to add pop to an otherwise neutral outfit!

    I just have cheapie Target leopard flats, but they definitely fit my lifestyle more than heels would. I can see how it would be difficult to find the right pair. Too platform-y or spiky or pointy or peeptoe, and you’re suddenly working the street corner. If those AT kitten heels make your heart sing, you should get them!
