I already have three different pairs of leopard print shoes, so the last thing I need is another pair. That’s never stopped me before, however, and I couldn’t help but be drawn to these Miss Selfridge platforms, not least because the basic shape of the shoe is so similar to the various bow-fronted platforms Miss S released last year (without the bow, of course), and which I was such a big fan of. I absolutely love the shape of these, and am really hoping that the use of this chunky-heeled platform again is an indication that we can expect more shoes in this style from the brand this year. (Maybe even a re-issue of the red ones I’ve been searching for since last summer? Pretty please?)
These would also be a good choice for those of you who’d like to add a bit of animal print to your shoe collection, but who are wary about what I think of as the “Bett Lynch” factor. The chunky, modern shape helps offset some of the traditional associations of leopard print stilettos, say, and will also look a little more up-to-date.
