11 Pairs of Leopard-Print Shoes You Can Wear 365 Days a Year

We all know the virtues of a great pair of skinny jeans or a perfectly cut tuxedo jacket, but there are certain less-than-obvious fashion items we consider fashion classics. Enter: leopard-print shoes. They're the kind of common item that even wildly different dressers will have in their closets in one form or another. Alexa Chung is as partial to a pair of kitty-print pumps as Chloë Sevigny is to a chunky pair of ocelot-patterned platforms. And good news if you're forever a fan—leopard print is heading back onto the fashion menu for A/W 18 in a big way. Prada is going heavy on the leopard in its accessories department, with handbags and platforms in a beautiful orange-hued leopard. Meanwhile, on the autumn/winter runways, hundreds of iterations on this classic feline pattern have been cropping up.
