I get so excited for booties, warm neutrals and anything animal print this time of year and I couldn’t be happier that retailers are stocking their shelves with so many options!
I was practically floored when I saw these black and tan New Balance cheetah print sneakers. They re-ignited my love of New Balance which was a long time love before Adidas became my go-to sneaker favorite. These are right up my alley style-wise, and the added bonus is that they’re lightweight, comfortable and feature a plush cushioned insole.
I scored a lot of great bootie finds including these super affordable sand colored block heel ankle boots from Amazon. The neutral shade and minimal style makes for a versatile sleek option, and they’re under $35! For just about ten dollars more, these cheetah print booties from Walmart offer a lower profile and flattering side cutout. If the print is not your thing, they come in four other style options!
I ventured to step outside of my comfort zone with these snake print high top sneakers. They give me Golden Goose vibes as a fraction of the cost. They feature a small platform for a little extra height and would make a fun accent to a minimal look, letting them be the star of the show. I was pleasantly surprised when I received them in the mail and was not nearly as intimidated by them as I thought I would be…looking forward to wearing them!
When it came to the more casual lace up boots, I opted to spend a little more because I fell in love with these Marc Fisher shearling trim boots. They feature plush genuine-shearling trim and a lugged sole for traction on wet or dry surfaces and the rich cognac color is just what I was looking for. If you like these but are not too keen on the price, these Sam Edelman shearling hiker boots offer a similar vibe for about half the price as the Marc Fisher pair with the addition of cute houndstooth fabric trim.
Lastly, I had to have these Adidas camo Swift Run sneakers. They are the same style as my coveted cheetah print pair, that are always coming in and out of stock. What I like about these is that it’s not an allover print like the cheetah pair, instead just features the cam accent on the side stripes, making it more wearable. Happy to add them to my sneaker collection!
Lots of great options this time around and looking forward to styling and wearing them all. Which one’s your favorite?
