Insomniac Sale Picks: Leopard Flats

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Robin requested a few picks for leopard flats (without embellishment), so here we go:

pony-hair-flats

Dr. Scholl’s Vixen – was $78, now $50.99

Robin specifically mentioned that she’d like very simple, unadorned flats, so although this pair features that black stripe down the back, I think they fit the bill fairly well. They’re also hair-on-hide, which I think adds depth to any leopard print! Available in U.S. sizes 6 – 11, including some wide widths.

Steve Madden P-Heaven – was $60, now $24.99 – $59.95

And since I know hair-texture shoes creep some of you out, here’s a vegan-friendly pair in leopard-print cloth! Cloth shoes tend to show wear sooner than leather and faux leather, but so long as these are kept away from moisture, they should hold up well. (Reviews say they hold their form over time, too.) Available in U.S. sizes 5 – 10.  This style has a patent toe, but is also man-made and comes in wide widths.

French Sole NY Peppy – was $189.95, now $109.03 – $189.95

Hmm. Turns out that MOST leopard flats are hair-on-hide right now … so I opted for this splurge-y pair in a sculptural shape and with a small-scale print. FSNY is a cult favorite brand for ballet flat fanatics, and this style actually comes in two equally lovely print styles. Available in U.S. sizes 5 – 11. I couldn’t find anything truly similar in widths, but this simple flat comes in W/D as well as B.

Sustainable resources for leopard flats:

  1. eBay – Choose from more than 1,000 gently used options.
  2. The Realreal – Secondhand designer picks for prices similar to what many comfort brands charge for brand new pairs.
  3. Etsy – Mostly vintage, but a few handmade and repurposed pairs, too!

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for leopard flats:

  1. Lucky Brand – Lucky’s usually got a couple of leopard options available.
  2. Steve Madden – Couldn’t find many brands that had more than a pair or two of unembellished leopard flats, but SM does a pair per season at least!
  3. J.Crew Factory – I’ve heard mixed reviews on quality and comfort, but J.Crew and Factory consistently stocks leopard ballet flats, and usually has a loafer or two available.

    You read my mind!

    I like wearing leopard print, but my partner says it remind him of 80’s hair bands. Can’t please everyone.
