In my never-ending search for loud-and-proud wedding shoes, this week I'm venturing into the wilds of animal print shoes. Really, it's a wonder it took me this long since really — is there such a thing as an understated animal print shoe?

Cheetah, leopard, zebra, pony … none of these animals were actually harmed in the making of this list of wedding shoes.

  1. I'm planning on wearing leopard print flats for the dance (I'll also be changing out of my gown in favor for a party dress too) LOVE all those shoes!!!

  2. I love all of the shoes! I like leopard print but honestly i've never been bold enough to wear it. Good idea!

  3. "Cheetah, leopard, zebra, pony … none of these animals were actually harmed in the making of this list of wedding shoes. "

    Except for the pony hair ones, right?

    Damn it is hard for a girl to find 11W shoes that aren't leather/suede/pony hair and aren't ridiculous.


    I didn't know the shoe features could get any better and then they did. I need all of these. White leopard print with red heels?! Dude I just peed myself a little.

  5. I got married 3 & 1/2 years ago & wore leopard print shoes… when i went to my fitting & stepped up on the platform in my 5" leopard heels, the seamstress said "Where are your shoes?" I said "I'm wearing them…" She said, "No, I mean where are the shoes you're getting married in?" I said "These ARE the shoes i am getting married in…" She didn't believe me until my mom confirmed it. All my bridesmaids also wore leopard shoes that I bought for them.

  6. Love this idea! I see more and more brides going with funky shoes and it's definitely a photographer's dream! They are so fun and really makes for an interesting day! Love them!

  7. The 6th one down most resembles the Betsey Johnson Mary Janes I plan on wearing. When I was browsing in the store, I told the employee I was going to be wearing red and instead of selling me the boring clear/white ones I was looking at, that guy suggested I go "balls to the wall" with leopard print. One look at them and I was SOLD!!!! I loooooove over-the-top! Animal print is for bad girls!!!! Roar!
