This is your captain speaking.
So, gather round…
I want to share my story in hopes that it will help you.
Still, even though I LOVED them, I still remember being nervous to wear them the first time.
Seems totally ridiculous to me now!
Or jeans and white t-shirt.
Because they ARE a neutral.
A super sassy and fun neutral.
Blue and green stripes with a neon yellow necklace.
The leopard works BECAUSE THEY ACT LIKE A NEUTRAL.
Say it with me people.
THEY ACT AS A NEUTRAL.
distressed (so many of you could wear them to work)! I am a 27 in the distressed cuffed jeans and the the boot cut, but these were smaller, and I needed a 28. Others have had said the same thing about these running smaller. My goodness I love these jeans.

wouldn’t have spent this much on a leopard flat 2 years ago, but I’m
willing to this year because I’ve proven to myself that I will get my $
worth out of them by wearing them CONSTANTLY.
want to consider that!
Shay bought these flats and received them in the mail last week. Which
OF COURSE warranted an immediate phone call. You guys. With the
exception of TOMS, Shay has never ever ever bought a pair of flats. Never. EVER. And
she bought these. She certainly didn’t buy the nude flats that I’ve been screaming about. But these flats are a different story. These flats are so awesome they actually made her put
down a pair of heels or wedges, take out her wallet, and buy them.
That’s impressive. And if we’re going to be honest, they are the 3rd pair….maybe even the 4th pair….of flats she purchased with the intent of wearing them on her upcoming NY vacation. The other ones she purchased were cheaper, but they just weren’t comfy enough!)
material of these shoes have texture. They are obviously not real
leopard hair, but they aren’t just a flat material either. I know I’m
not making any sense, but I don’t know how to describe them?!?
flats rub my feet and hurt- the ankles, around the front, on the sides
of the foot. With that, I am very picky about my shoes and usually end
up spending a ton of money to get flats that don’t hurt. I am amazed at
these flats- they were comfortable right out of the box, didn’t require
any break in time, and felt good on my feet all day. I will definitely
be getting more of these in lots of fun colors!
And here’s the comment Shay left this morning:
You know that I’ve been a leopard enthusiast for years and years.
Leopard is as neutral as black. But I have never, ever been a flats
enthusiast…until now. Those Sam Edelman’s are FABULOUS! If you love
flats, you must purchase these shoes! They are so comfy, have sole
support, look chic and cute at the same time…one little shoe has
changed my entire footwear opinion. People…get these flats!
Shay wearing flats (that aren’t TOMS), is a BIG deal! 🙂
Sam Edelman also just came out with a leopard flat HERE that is almost exactly
like the above shoe, but the toe is more squared off.
I think this square toe makes the flat a bit dressier.
Here are some other leopard flat options from Nordstrom:
Click HERE for a pointy toe option (just checked and only 2 sizes left!) Dang!
GREAT reviews and right at $50!
Click HERE for a pair of MK leopard moccasins that are already 50% off!
I tried these on during the anniversary and REALLY liked them.
Or if you would prefer a super casual pair of TOMS, don’t forget about the leopard
burlap ones HERE.
(Remember to read the reviews on these and order a 1/2 to a full size down.)
*Michael Kors HERE (I like the studded brass on the soles.)
And some options from Macy’s:
This pair HERE with the open side design that is new this year.
If you want to add some leopard to your wardrobe, but aren’t quite ready to commit to leopard flats, then I highly suggest adding a leopard belt and/or a leopard scarf to your closet!
|I know, my collages are getting so fancy. 🙂|
Here are some examples of outfits with my leopard scarves (because I have 2).
In the following pictures I’ve paired leopard with neutral, blue, red, and green!
And fyi…..I am also LOVING this leopard ankle boot.
