Leopard Shoes by Alexander Wang

March 29, 2010

Here is a comment I posted on Jetwintour regarding the leopard shoes/wedges by Alexander Wang, “In looking at this shoe at first glance, one wouldn’t know what it was until you actually got a chance to get closer and get a more up-close approach. With the look of a boot, wedge and pump, it holds its own uniqueness with a number of possibilities. Would I pay $650? Probably not. However, I’d like to be one getting photo shots from various angles to feature on my blog. And I woudln’t even charge for the opportunity. It would make a handsome addition to my blog and a treat for my readers/viewers.” 

Whether or not I want to call them stunning would neither be overstating or understating the unusual design (photo from Vogue.com).  Although leopard prints are becoming more and more popular, they are seeming to take over every style and design in several forms of pumps, sandals, tennis, and wedges.  And now with the incorporation of boots and pumps and sandals, and gladiator-inspired designs, we’d be lucky if shoe designs kept their simplicity in times to come.

Alexander Wang’s leopard creation can be found at Zappos.com.  They are slapped with a price tag of  $650.  While already being on market, there is no doubt that those with money to burn will more than likely be burning up the internet or knocking down retailer’s doors to get their hands on a pair.

    Hey, thanks for visiting my blog. To answer your question as best I can, hunting boots with the steel toe are good, and there are waterproof boots, too, that tend to work well. So, you may want to check some of those out. Also, you may find boots with a 1-inch thick rubbery-like sole with skid resistence (also waterproof). For much dryer conditions for the type of work you do, hiking boots tends to be the best choice…from men working landscaping and construction I see around our neighborhood. Wellies are good, too. Hope this helps.

    A little off topic perhaps, but a request for you to think about the ethics of buying things like designer clothes. Do try and think about, for example, the materials the item is made from, the conditions of the employees where they’re made and the green credentials of retailers. And try to recycle instead of discarding. Thanks!!!!

      Hello. I read your comment. Although I think your comment is a bit off-topic, I do appreciate your taking the time to write it. However, I do not feel it applies to what Studio5 is about as people will buy what they want. It’s their money and their decision. Studio5 is about fashion, accessories, shoes, and the industry alike. There is nothing wrong with the post, as I was basically stating my opinion about the product described. I’m sure you are aware as to how the industry has evolved over the years and how many of the materials used are artificially created to look like the real thing to avoid unnecessary controversies. But in the case of that shoe, I wasn’t too much concerned about what it was made of at the time, but simply focusing on the style itself, which was the entire point of the post. Therefore, it is requested that you refrain from posting these types of comments on my blog as it would be misconstrued as negativity to the blog, and that it is NOT what Studio5 was created for. Studio5 is about the freedom and enjoyment of fashion and what “I” believe is good, appropriate, of valuable information, fun and entertainment; what people enjoy. What I want to share with my newfound friends and viewers in and out of the industry; thoughts, ideas, and suggestions. I’m a huge fan and believer of dontating to churches, outreach programs and Goodwill Industries where I know will do some good. I donate clothes and shoes at least three to four times a year, just so you know.
