Since people keep asking... my cheap leopard flats

I will be the first to admit that I get a little jealous of all the fabulous ladies out there in blogland who can buy $150 flats and a pair of $98 pillow covers without saving for weeks.  However, instead of dwell on it and wish for more, I work with the budget I am still quite lucky to have and play copycat.  Sometimes it works out great.

While perusing Shopstyle for leopard print flats, I came across this pair on Alloy.com and liked the pattern and shape of the shoe - and that they are just $25. 


I'm very picky about the shape of my flats - they can't be too boxy or come up too high on the tops of my feet - and these met my criteria.  However, as you would expect from a store geared toward 15 year old girls, the quality is crap.  The soles of these shoes are so thin you may as well go barefoot.  Luckily, that was not a problem too big for Dr. Scholl's and an $8 pair of gel insoles.

Now I wear the flats all the time and can't go anywhere without someone stopping to ask where I bought them.  If you pick up my foot and look closely, you'll see they're cheap, but from a distance they look just fine and I can afford a spare pair if I need them.  So, if you're interested, check them out and think of me as you accept your compliments with a smile.  (Go up a half size, though.  They run small)

  2. Those are cute! Almost all of my flats are cheapos bought from Payless or the clearance racks at Macy's--I am hard on my shoes and at this point in our lives can't justify spending too much on shoes, as much as I love them :)
