Leopard Print Shoes + Sexy Platform Stilettos

In 2006, when shopping for my wedding shoes, I bought a pair of to die for leopard print calf-hair Gucci loafers thinking I could sneak them in under the guise of wedding gift to self. However, the husband wasn’t too happy with the $800 price tag, so I reluctantly returned them. The thing is, I’d still be wearing them – almost 5 years later, and I kick myself at least once a month for getting rid of them. Yes they were expensive and no, I don’t usually spend that kind of money on shoes {I wait for the sales} but they were so perfect and so classic that they would have been a proper shoe investment – if there is such a thing.Since that sad and lonely afternoon when I had to part with my classic Gucci’s, I’ve only found one other pair of leopard print heels that have even come close to the standard of greatness I set that day: the Alexander Wang leopard print wedges …which unfortunately sold out immediately – meaning, there would be no sale and they would never be mine.

Last week when I saw these Casedei peep toes available in my size on GILT I almost fell off my desk chair trying to hit the “click to buy” button before anyone else snatched them up. I was unsure they were going to fit the width of my Cinderella’s Stepsister’s sized feet so a few days later when they arrived and like Cinderella, I slipped them on with ease, I didn’t care that the heel was so high I might just topple over if a strong gust of wind blew past me.

Stiletto heel height aside, I’m still very much going to keep these lovelies because they are just about the sexiest pair of shoes I’ve ever slipped my feet into …and if it weren’t for my painfully swollen left ankle and my inability to go have it checked by a doctor, these actually wouldn’t be that difficult to walk in …they just look like they are. My Alexander Wang ankle boots are 10x’s more challenging to walk in, even though the heel is much much thicker.

Maybe I’ll keep these beauties on display like artwork …just to gaze at them every now and again.

    I do not wear leopard pattern shoes, but these look fabulous. I love the height and the sole. The little accent in the sole is so gorgeous. Love the peep toe

    Leopard goes with everything, and heels go with everything, so honestly, buying an uber expensive pair of leopard heels is actually smart and economical since you can..wear them with everything!

    But seriously, those are so gorgeous. I love Gilt. I also laughed about your buying the $800 Gucci pumps–I always secretly knew that when I get married, I’m going to buy a pair of leopard print Louboutins and be all THEY GO WITH MY DRESS!



    March 8, 2011 |

    I love casadei!!
    There shoes are so beutiful and really sexxxxxy!!
    I have a pair of Casadei and stiletto is sooo high that gives me an unconvincing walk but… That’s love! 😉
    They remain my “perfect-sexy-high-heels-shoes- and for sitting dinners are Ok!!!!!!

    Those shoes are amazing!! I recently have decided that sometimes, if a shoe purchase that I didn’t make is still haunting me after a year, than it is perfectly acceptable for me to find a similar pair that can work as room decor 🙂 Of course eventually I’ll need a full room for ‘missed shoe opportunity displays’ but for now it’s a happy medium!

  • Schnelle Couture

    March 8, 2011 |

    OMG perfection! I’ve never seen a sexier, classier pair of leopard pumps. Love them!

  • Prissy

    These freakin shoes are to die for!! I absolutely LOVE them. You were right! They are perfect

    Totally sexy. I don’t even *like* animal prints all THAT much, but I definitely like these. A lot. They are darn sexy without having a tramp stamp or written SEXY across their collective forehead 🙂
    And I can relate to having shoes that get very little wear because of their high heel… I wear heels like a pro, but there is this one pair of gunmetal embellished stiletto 6″ high heels (that I snatched for 7€!!! From the store!!) that is not all that easy to wear without falling over… Needless to say, I lurve them. And when I wore them last summer, I not only ran in them and survived a boat ride while standing up, also my feet lived to tell the tale. I’m kinda proud of them 🙂

    I figured out how to maximize the cost per wear for these shoes.

    You will keep them for half the year. Then you will send them to me the other half of the year.

    Neither of us would wear them but we would be allowed to CARRY them in our hands with the appropriate outfit.
    What do you think? That could work.

    We would make a pact to only display them on the shelf if we are not carrying them. I, like you, would have a hard time navigating the height of the heel but we’re not talking about wearing them right?

    You bought them…so you have them from March- September…September is my bday month so that’s a fair swap.

    You have my address. I’ll be waiting. Take care of them.

    Wowza! Those are some HEELS. There is no way I could walk in those. I would have to just display them on a shelf or something. It must feel great to finally heal the wound of losing your first love Gucci’s 😉 I bet your husband isn’t complaining about these-haha.

    So fun! I posted about my leopard shoes on Friday. Let’s just say…I didn’t photograph them all. They are my all time favorite – a neutral in my mind. Maybe it’s b/c I’m a gemini too and easily bored. These are the kind of shoes you will still be wearing in 10 years….so happy you took the plunge.
