Am quite taken with the leopard print ones or possible bronze toe post style

I have pale legs and feet, what do you think??

I would go for bronze over leopard print.

dexter do you think leopard print is tacky?

Leopard sound good.
However, I LOVE my orange Birks. I have v v pale legs too and they warm me up a treat. They're also such a loud and unusual colour that they seem to go with everything.

Bronze gets my vote - unless you are always VERY well pulled together, leopard can look slightly tacky imo.

Lady Clarice, my ideal Birkenstock colour would be the patent-look coral pink/orange. I just love that colour and goes brilliantly with denim, what kid of orange do you have?

silver
hte toe posts

leopard ones

This colour, I think; more of a true orange. They're not patent either, although you can get this image in patent.

Sorry about the immensely long link!

I'd go for the leopard print.
