Yesterday Sonia asked in the comments how many pairs of leopard- and cheetah-print shoes I owned and I realized I haven't given these cuties from Target much attention. While they are comfortable to stand in and I can easily walk to and from the Metro, they aren't good all-day shoes and I can't do much more walking than that in them. Today I drove to work, so it made for a good tall leopard shoe day.

And just in case I have to go anywhere unexpectedly, I have yesterday's comfy shoes in my bag as a backup!

    I call these “car to chair” shoes. I have a number of them–still worth purchasing as long as you’re conscious of when and where you wear them. These are fabulous. I especially love the mix of colors and prints.

    Love this look! I am not a heel person (I love the way they look not they way they feel), but I do have four pairs of leopard flats 🙂 They are just so easy to buy!

    The first thing I thought of when I saw the shoes is if they were comfortable. Nice look

    I started off with NARS Heat Wave because it was a perfect match but ended up looking a bit too harsh, this is Revlon Matte Lipstick in Really Red 🙂

    I usually put Footpetals in my shoes but haven’t done so with these… yet. I think if they had something to keep the foot from sliding forward they would be more wearable. The platform really does balance out the crazy high heels!

    Exactly, these are perfect date night shoes, but not try to be a well-functioning multitasking person shoes. 🙂

    You look very va-va-voom in this combo.

    Fabulous skirt, Allie! The color and shape are wonderful. And I always keep comfortable shoes nearby too  : >

    I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of seeing stripes and leopard print together – it’s such an unexpected form of pattern mixing, but it really works.

    BTW, what brand and color is that lipstick?  It matches your skirt perfectly!

    I love the way the height of these shoes look on you!  So adorable!!

    Funny thing was I was planning on wearing a pair of heeled sandals (only 3″ high) this morning, and carry my flats as a backup.  Fortunately, I realized before I left the house that my feet weren’t ready for heels and so the flats won out.

    I have the same shoes and was thinking of trying an insert in them to get more wearing power.  I love them and always get a lot of compliments on them, but you are right–they are not all day shoes.  I have them in black too, so I guess I am doubly interested in insoles!

    Love the skirt! And thanks for talking about the walkability of the shoes – I love them, but that just answered my question of whether or not I could walk and stand in them all day once school is back in session. Sounds like they’re date night shoes only if I decide to get some like them.
