“ Brand: Juicy Couture / Type: Court Shoes „
I own lots of pairs of shoes, Mark calls me Imelda Marcos and I estimate I have at least 100 pairs. Which obviously doesn't put me in Marcos terratory but is pretty damned impressive, dontcha think? Anyways I've got a nice mix of designer and high street shoes, these Juicy Couture were a birthday present from Mark - because he thought they were sexy when he saw them, and is a bit of a perv! Heehee!
They are gorgeous though, bang on trend the shoes look stylish and sexy without being tacky or making me look like Bet Gilroy! I'm into animal prints and have been for some time, so I already have a few pair of leopard and zebra print shoes but these are my absolute favourite due to the style of them and also the fact that even though they have a towering 5in heel they are incredibly comfortable to walk in.
The shoe is calf hair and this gives a smooth area so that the leopard print design stands out well, I think the colours used are beautiful as they look natural but also effortlessly stylish.
The toe has a blunted appearance which I think is much better than many of the pointed-toe shoes featuring this leopard print design, there is also a small row of studs which aren't exactly in your face but they do make the shoes stand out from the crowd.
The heel is very slim and when I first wore them I was scared stiff that it was going to snap, especially being as I knew the price of the shoes! I haven't had a problem though and the heel actually remains looking fantastic with no colour rubbing off or scratching despite the fact that I've driven in them, which is a notoriously good way of ruining the heels of your shoes!
There is a slight amount of padding to the inside of the shoe and that helps keep them as comfortable as possible for such a towering pair. The first two or three times I wore them I thought the backs rubbed quite badly but my skin didn't blister and after a few wears they were fine.
As I'm currently nearly 7 months pregnant I haven't worn them for a while, I'm completely the wrong shape at the moment to be wearing sexy heels such as this and I definitely think the style and height of them is a bit inappropriate! Anyway, I think my ankles would explode if I tried wearing them now!
I think these shoes are best teamed with slim fitting black jeans and a simple white top, classic styled clothing works well due to the fact that this will help the gorgeous shoes to be shown to their best advantage. Mark calls them my WAG shoes, but there's nothing tarty about them. There's a very fine line when wearing leopard skin heels as they can either look fun and stylish or make you look like a hooker, these are definitely not tarty and would also be just as suitable if you have a job which requires wearing smart heels.
