My Feet Want to Purr, Take 2

A little while back, I asked for your help in deciding between two leopard print shoes. Nearly everyone agreed that the heels rather than the sandals were a better choice. Well people, you were WRONG. These shoes hurt in a way that I have not experienced before. I’m still halfheartedly trying to break them in, but my itching for animal print hasn’t been properly satisfied yet. So, I bring you two more options that I need help deciding between.


Option 1: Kensie Girl Sila

They are very affordable (due to being faux leather). The shape looks pretty comfortable, but with the heel coming in at 4 inches, there’s definitely a potential for pain. What can I say? My feet are pussies. Hence finding cat print shoes (zing!).



Option 2: Matisse Nugent


First of all, named after Ted Nugent? Cool points have been awarded. The low wedge heel and ankle support of a bootie pretty much guarantee comfort. The pattern isn’t leopard per se, but it’s definitely some sort of animal of the cat family. These are by far the most expensive option, however.

So, what say ye? Don’t lead me wrong this time, internet. Otherwise I’m changing this blog to a poetry site dedicated to David Hasselhoff and Chuck Norris.

    Option 1.  I’m on the hunt for comfortable LP shoes as well.

    Your poor feet!! I never saw the first post about your choice on high or low. Most women will say go high, but I know that shoes like Madden and Aldo burn the feet. I know I hated a pair of Aldo shoes I purchased but my Camuto’s were easily broken in and only hurt after three hours of wear. I like the first choice this time around!

    Booties, ladycat!

    Bootaaays. The print is such an interesting variation of leopard, and they’re just so very badass. I kind of want them, myself. (Also, just sayin, I was all for the sandal.) Also, your zing! joke made me lol.

    i say booties. as much as i like the height (duh!) of the first pair, think towards the upcoming season & even with it being more expensive, you’ll get more use out of them…that whole cost per wear…blah, blah, blah ^_^

    I almost bought that first pair, so they get my vote!

    Yeah, those leopard boots are pretty sweet.

  • Noelani@MonPetitChouChou August 27, 2011, 12:19 pm

    I have been eyeing leopard booties a lot this week. Saw some decent looking stuff at Aldo too- cheap and chic.

  • Brianne August 27, 2011, 1:32 pm

    What about leopard flats?  Cute and comfy….

    • A Stylized Hysteria August 29, 2011, 2:51 pm

      Oh, I expect a pair of leopard flats will make their way into my closet soon enough! But I think I have leopard fever…need more…

    i LOVE the matisse pair! its such a non-typical leopard print. thats something I can get behind/buy right now in my hurricane online shopping spree.



  • Kristen August 29, 2011, 5:13 pm

    Perhaps because the first pair is too big? LOVING the Nugent shoes. LOVE. Of course, they are the most expensive option. LeSigh.
