Leopard flats -

Ever since I saw this photo on the Southerncharm site I have wanted leopard flats. I would scroll on my phone looking at shoes until the very last second possible on the plane and I had to shut it off.  I would wake up at night and think of a site I hadn't tried yet. I have been obsessed.

If you have the itch too I am going to give a quick review of all the leopard flats I have tried.

I bought these - Dr. Scholl's. They were comfortable but too wide. I went down a half size and they still weren't right - I wasn't sure how VERY cute they were either. Back they went.


Dr. Scholl's "Really" Leopard Flat - about $50.


I thought about these Tory Burch Reva flats a lot - even though they are pricey - I liked them. So I bought a pair on ebay and they showed up FAKE!! So I returned them to the supposedly unsuspecting girl that sold them to me. Jerk. 


Tory Burch leopard flats about $250 originally - ebayers beware.


These Lucky Brand Emmie flats are VERY comfortable - super squishy - like wearing squishy, supportive socks, and I had them in my online cart for a long time, but in the end I wanted some that were a tad dressier and wanted some calf hair ones - so it looks like real leopard. Not that I want to look like I hurt a leopard. The shoes that look like leopard actually use calf-hair which seems horrible now too.  I wish I hadn't brought up animals. I feel sad now about any shoes. 
Lucky Brand "Emmie" Flats - about $60.


I asked a woman on a plane about hers and these Nine West flats are the ones she had. For some reason I couldn't bring myself to buy these even though they were really pretty in person and she said "very comfortable." I was hesitant about the pointy-toe ones - felt better about the idea of the round toe - more "me." I went with pointy toes in the end though so whatever. 
Nine West "Speak Up" Leopard Flat - about $80.  They look prettier in person.



I thought about these as well, but the low price worried me. I wanted something really pretty - this was not the item to go cheapy on.  I am not sure about the fabric - they get good reviews on Amazon though. These are "vegan" which after writing about leopards and calf hair seems like a good idea.
Ollio Leopard Flats about $16


And finally I saw these in Nordstrom's and (no shame here) my MOM bought them for me!  Hooray for that!  Yay Mom! I went for the pointy toe and toe cleavage and all.  And as soon as it's not a thousand and ten degrees here in Florida I will bust these out. 



Steve Madden 'Elusion' Leopard Print Calf Hair Half d'Orsay Flat about $80

They are just pretty to look at in my closet. They fit true to size, by the way. I don't know how comfortable they are yet - probably take a little breaking in.

Anyone have something they are lusting after? Don't say cocaine because that is an actual serious problem. 

** Update! I LOVE the Steve Madden shoes that I bought. They took a couple of times to break them in a little but now they are so comfortable. No support obviously as they are very flat, but I can still wear them all day with and they still feel good.  I wear them with practically any and everything - from super casual to a business suit. They are my favorite pair of fall/winter shoes. They seem to still be available - thanks a lot Steve Madden! - So here are a few that are similar at least. 
Sam Edelman Rae (pointy toe)
Sam Edelman Felicia (round toe)
Nine West Adorabl (more round)
Nine West Zaba (pointy toe)
Breckelle's D'Orsay (pointy toe)

  1. Go Mom! See, your patience is rewarded. I thought you would never find a pair that you really like. I cannot understand how some comfortable leopard print flats can be so hard to find- especially in that print, which is one of the most popular designs around.
