One of the biggest trends seen down the runways and on the streets is the animal prints on shoes, sandals, and booties. It used to be that in order to wear animal prints you would have to spend a lot of money especially when it came to exotic animal prints. While there is still the use of real animal skins for some shoes, many are synthetic prints which allow the prices to be lower as well as the fact that these shoes are more humane. The fact that some of these shoes, sandals, and boots are made not for the real skins allows more creative freedom on terms of changing up colors and scaling up or down the size of the print.
Platform sandals are very popular right now as we all know. There are plenty of styles, colors, and brands to choose from. These type of shoes are great because you can dress them up or down depending on what you are wearing and where you are going.
Steve Madden Venomm in either natural or blue synthetic snake print is a great and fun platform sandal. Do not be intimidated by the 5.25″ heel, the platform at the toe area is 2.75″ so they are quite stable and comfortable to wear
If snake is not the animal print you are looking for, and leopard print is, then Naughty Monkey Leopard Print Pump with red accent trip and ankle strap is a great choice. This is a fun shoe that is great with a basic outfit as you do not want the shoe to overwhelm or clash with your clothes. The heel on this shoe is 4″ and has a 1/2″ platform.
Many sandals look the same and after viewing them they all kind of mix together and begin to look the same. The Cocobelle Bahia Python Thong is not one of those shoes. This shoe is a jersey thong sandal with a jersey ankle cuff.
Whether you are simply looking for a stylish flip flop that will set you apart from everyone else or you are simply trying to ease your way into wearing animal prints, the Tory Burch Flip Flop is a great choice. With a zebra print set in geometric patterns this shoe is not only comfortable, it is fun to wear. With every step you take you will show off this eye pleasing pattern.
