Yes, Please!!! (The Perfect Leopard Print Flat)

I've been searching for the perfect pair of leopard flats (documented here and here) for months. I wanted a good print, calf-hair, and a pointed toe.

I think I've found them:

The Leopard Sidewalk Skimmer

And with Madewell's current 25% and free shipping promo (on a purchase of $150 or more, 'til Friday, 12/9), these shoes are pretty reasonably priced. The only downside? My size was sold out in the Madewell store in San Francisco (where I first came across them), and is backordered online until January. Not ideal, but for that price and all my requirements checked off, I'm willing to wait.

And while we're talking shoes, I may need to update my old black Tory Burch Romy flats (sadly, showing the signs of 3 years of heavy wear) with these pointed toe Eddie flats. I'm pretty hard on my flats, since I wear them a lot, and am always running after my kiddos in them. Patent finishes seem to hold up against my abuse for a lot longer than matte leather, so I think these could do the job.

It's a good time to be my feet.

What about you? What are your feet wearing these days?


  1. You should try calling Madewell, if you haven't, they're REALLY good about finding items that aren't available in your store. Once I ordered something that then got cancelled, and they actually called me saying they found it in a store, and send it to me with free shipping! 

  2. Ooh, I had been eyeballing some leopard footwear lately and had been looking for flats - I hadn't seen the Madewell ones, they look fantastic! (Ugh, unfortunately I have been a terrible shopper and have already purchased two pairs of shoes this week - I think I'm at my limit).

    Haha, maybe you mean you've been a GOOD shopper and already purchased two pairs. I'm far too skilled at shopping, myself. I need to get worse at it...

    Oh, that's a good idea! I'll try giving them a call.

  5. Cute cute! Me... I've been wearing... um, my new balance sneakers. :/
