Style on Trial: ASOS ‘Purr’ Over Lasted Suede Wedges

Black wedge shoes with cat print

Cats and shoes: it’s not exactly the most obvious pairing in the world, but ever since Miu Miu released their cat-print platforms a couple of seasons ago, cutesy animal prints have been all over the place: and it’s not just cats, either – we’ve had Scottie dogs, owls, swallows – you name it, it’s probably graced an item of clothing.

And now we have these ‘Purr’ wedges by ASOS. The print instantly made us think of Miu Miu, although the shape is totally different: the overall effect is a little bit witchy and a big bit twee, but nevertheless, we think these might be one of those “love them or hate them” items, which is why we’ve put them up On Trial.

What do you think? Are they innocent or guilty of committing crimes of fashion?

    Would LOVE them, but something about the shape simply throws me off. So hate is the option I have to go for.

    I think they are really sweet. Interesting shape as well- they would look really nice with black tights and a simple dress!

    I like the print but not the shape. They would’ve been better as a wedge without the little heel.

    I agree: love the print, hate the shape.

    I despise them. They’re ALMOST great in so many ways, and then they fall off the right track. They’d look better without the cats, with a determinate heel (I hate that half***ed not quite wedge, not quite heel heel), and without that rocker platform. I love the shape (minus that odd wannabe wedge) and the dots, though.

    I wouldn’t wear them myself, but I wouldn’t care if someone else wore them.

    I’m a sucker for anything cat related so I’d probably wear these.

    I love animals but I don’t think I would wear these. Maybe with a pair of skinny jeans, yeah I guess I would wear these.
