Animal prints have been popular for years, and continue to stake a claim on runways and in wardrobes season after season. Leopard print, in particular, reigned supreme in fall ’20 collections from designers like Rochas, Mui Mui and Naeem Khan, who showcased the spotted finish in everything from an oversized A-line coat to breezy floor-length and midi frocks.

And while it’s hard to deny the versatility of a black boot or nude pump, shoes done in leopard print are also considered a closet staple. Equal parts bold and chic, leopard print footwear adds a fun flourish to everything from basic dresses to straight-leg jeans (Heidi Klum is a fan of leopard). Whether you’re partial to polished kitten heels or comfy kicks, we’ve rounded up our favorite shoes styles covered in the fierce print.

Consider these sleek slip-ons your new favorite house shoes. They feature the brand’s signature 7-layer cushioning technology and soft quilted satin insole, paired with a smooth calf hair upper. Bonus: the outsoles are sturdy enough that the shoes can easily be worn outside, too.
