While out doing Retail Reconnaissance during the last few days, I couldn’t help but notice that snake print booties are everywhere for fall. I think animal prints in small doses can really add some “punch” to a simple outfit. Boots (and shoes) can be a good way to incorporate a bit of animal print without being overwhelmed by it.
(Just a quick heads-up: Net-a-Porter is having a sale on current season pieces. Use code NEWNOW15 for 15% off.)
While I’ve always been more of a leopard gal, I have to admit some reptile prints have really grown on me.
These are budget-friendly, and well-reviewed for comfort.
I purchased this style in the leopard print last year and can vouch for the comfort.
These are spendy, but really gorgeous in person. I didn’t have time to try them on, but the leather seems soft, and I like the squared toe.
If snake print booties feel just a little too edgy, how about a pair of loafers or sneakers?
The classic style of these loafers tempers the snake print. This style has been around for a while and is well-reviewed for comfort. (If you’re a little more adventurous with color, there’s also a yellow reptile version.)
These are really comfortable, and I’ve been close to purchasing on a couple of occasions.
Do you wear animal prints? What are your preferences?
