Fashionista NOW: 7 Must-Have Leopard Shoes Fashion Inspiration

Leopard prints may be too gaudy for some but on shoes as an accent print, why not? Check out the list of must-have leopard kickers to dip your toes into this wild animal print trend.

Are you a shoe collector? I often wonder about the mindset of shoe collectors as I am not much of a shopper although I do like and covet certain things. A book collector, that, I can sort of relate to but with the internet becoming my current go-to library of knowledge, I don’t go insane about hoarding books either. What is the line that separates between the passion for collecting shoes and the compulsive act of hoarding?

Anyway, getting back to the topic of wild leopard prints, It’s no secret that I have a love affair with this particular animal motif. I can’t reason why but it’s a random liking that has recently developed two years back starting with a pair of patterned leggings. Looking back to the time before that, I really was (and still) your typical jeans-and-tee gal with a penchant for black and blue and other dark safe colors. I’ve never worn a skirt casually to classes in college and the only time I wore heels was for a final year presentation. The experience left both of my feet blistered because I thought I could walk in them the way I did with a pair of sneakers. Silly me, I know, I know.

If you’re a bit like the younger me who was allergic to any sort of print but would not mind giving it a go in the way of a highlight or accent, start with leopard print shoes. Check out the must-have leopard shoe selection below to get an idea or two on what to wear with leopard shoes should you decide to ever try them:

lace-up shoes – Shoes Made In Heaven | Aleksandra L.

It’s cold that you need a long coat but not that nippy that you’d ditch your tattered jeans, this is what they call the climate-confused wardrobe but hey, Aleksandra transforms a predictable wardrobe with the leopard accents via the scarf and shoe.

shoes – Choies | Patti Santamaria

Slip-on shoes or loafers are my favorite. I can’t stand having to bend down to buckle or tie my shoes. So, this leopard slip-on is pretty high on my list. Get adventurous by topping off your tank and jeans combo with a plaid cardigan for a wearable take on the print on print look.

ankle boots – MICHAEL Michael Kors | Sarah

I’ve mentioned that I loathed heeled shoe. I take it back if it’s chunky heeled as I need all the support. Sarah’s color-block leopard boots smarten up her elegant outfit. However, she doesn’t stop with one print as there is a strategic use of a narrow scarf rendered in a similar leopard print wrapped around her neck. I love it!

sandals – Palmaira Sandals | J L

Cozy silhouettes are no longer constricted to lounge wear. The leopard sandals serve as the only printed piece in this casual number that even the most print-shy will be right at home with this look.

loafers – Pull & Bear | Kalina H.

Need to tone down the leopard print effect even if it’s just on your loafers? Layer your tee-and-jeans combo with a black outerwear.

sneakers – Converse | Catherine V.

Sneakers in leopard print – how refreshing. Pop them on when you’re wearing an all-black ensemble and see how a tease of print elevates your look without much fuss.

boots – Saint Laurent | Frankie

An outfit with a black slogan tee, black moto jacket and a checkered skirt in black and white can be easily finished off with a pair of trainers. But why be predictable when you can slip into a pair of leopard lace-up boots. Here’s another wearable print on print look that anyone will look good in, right?

Scouring Zalora Malaysia for trendy things is a favorite past time of mine even when all I do is put items on the wishlist. I’m sure we all do this and then log out feeling a little blue. Look what cool leopard shoe picks I’ve found, though:
