About a week ago, I fulfilled the "leopard gap" in my closet and found a pair of leopard pumps and flats at Target, both at very reasonable prices. I haven't worn the flats yet, but I did wear the pumps and I wanted to share my experience! :)
Merona for Target Leopard Print Pumps, sz 8
I was very surprised to see that these pumps are actually real leather and resemble calf hair pumps (or are these real calf hair pumps too?). The bottom has a rubber sole and the inside is decently padded (many Merona shoes offer that).
Heel height is about 3 inches, which is quite reasonable for a good amount of wear throughout the day. I wore these for about 5 hours and didn't have much of an issue with them. I am used to all-leather pumps, however, so these didn't live up to my "high quality" expectations. But, what can you expect from inexpensive shoes?
These pumps definitely run a little wider than Ann Taylor Perfect Pumps (which I adore). I've noticed that a lot of Target's pumps are wider than usual, and don't offer any "toe cleavage" which is often see on more expensive shoes. Overall, I think it's a great deal and a great piece for the price. I paid full price for these-- $29.99.
If you're on the lookout for leopard pumps (which are GREAT for Fall!), definitely try these out! The price is right (especially for authentic leather) and the quality is pretty decent as well.
Even though leopard is such an interesting print, I'm finding that it matches well with different outfits. I'm excited to experiment with them this Fall and look forward to wearing them with black tights in the Winter!
What would you wear leopard pumps with?
