Have seen leopard print ones around but are they a bit last summer? Already have a pair of pale pink ones. Wondering about chocolate brown, but hanker after red patent (wasn't allowed patent as a child). Opinions please

get these. I have 2 pairs of leopard print ballet pumps (slightly different patterns) and some Leopard print stilettos as well. Love them. NOT last season, as they are still going for this season, probably as least into autum/winter collections.

I have about 40 pairs of ballet pumps, in every colour you can imagine (including red patent by the way!) They are amazing, go with any kind of outfit and are so comfy!

anything you like - red patent look fab peeking from jeans
(remember they can be v unkind to the less delicate calf and ankle though - I can only wera them with trousers)

New Look are doing lovely leather ones in loads of bright colours for only £20 - so you can get a few pairs!!

I have red satin ones with little bows, I love them (although they are now quite grubby)

ooh New Look, good idea, then I can treat myself to red ones and leopard print. I have cankles so was only thinking of them with trousers really

M&S have cute leopard print ones for only £9.50 at the mo

BassMama · 27/03/2007 19:48

agree with the no blisters thing on New Look shoes - they are surprisingly good quality for the price!

deaconblue · 27/03/2007 19:59

my super high, suede ones with lovely bows on are surprisingly comfortable from New Look too. Will go ballerina shoe hunting tomorrow. Think shall get red patent, leopard print and chocolate brown at that price
