Leopard print is a trend that’s been around several seasons now and shows no sign of slowing. In fact, 2011′s shoe selection seems more soaked in the wild print than ever. And when a trend is that big the variety of choices are going to be vast. That means that you’ll be able to find leopard print heels at virtually any budget level. Photo via pinupgirlclothing.com
If your budget is low (or you just don’t want to spend a lot of money on something so trendy) you’ve still got plenty of options. For $28 you can get the peep-toe pumps below, left from Mandee.com. Those have a 5-inch (12.7 cm) heel! If you can stretch your cash a bit farther, shopplasticland.com has the boots in the center for $46. As a bonus, they’re vegan-friendly. Up another notch on the budget scale and you can score the printed platform pumps on the right. They are by Paris Hilton’s brand and are available at heels.com for $90.
When budget’s not a barrier, you can play around in the designer shoe arena. Of course, no trend passes by without the infamous Christian Louboutin taking his turn at it. He’s the maker of the slingback peep-toes on the left, which can be purchased for $925 at barneys.com. Fendi makes the pony hair cuffed boots in the center. They have a sale price of $956 (retail $1195) at bluefly.com. The anything-but-plain “Tribtoo” pumps on the right are made by YSL. They retail for $970 at harveynichols.com.
