Would you wear…Topshop’s ‘Ashish’ animal print wedge ankle boots?

topshop-ashish-ankle-boots

As Shoeperwoman readers will already know, it’s all about animal print in the footwear world this season. Topshop clearly realise this, and have gone for a “the more, the merrier!” kind of approach, figuring that if animal print = good, then animal print + massive platform = Even Better.  Oh, and they’ve thrown in a peep toe on a boot, clearly in observance of the 2009 commandment, “Thou Shalt Not Create Boots Without Giving Them a Pointless Peep Toe”.

These sold out almost immediately at Topshop, and are already one of the most talked-about shoes on the internet, for this week at least. Would you wear these shoes? If so, they’re £140 at Topshop (although you may need to visit a store in person to track a pair down as they’re sold out online) and they’re also available in black. Whaddya think?

    I got the black ones as they are so much versatile and I like the style of the boots but love both the other colours and would wear them 🙂

    Shoes that look like something Scary Spice would’ve worn circa 1997 = not good…

    Peep toe boots make me wonder – they don’t really work in cold weather or rain. The high wedge on these lifts the wearer at least above the water line of most puddles.

    They’d look more suitable in a drag queen’s wardrobe.

    I am reminded of Anne McCaffrey’s Acorna series. Specifically, the scene where Acorna, as a hoofed humanoid alien, needs specially-designed shoes to disguise her feet and pass for human. These look about right.

      I have a character for a game that has those type of feet, and has to have special shoes.

      I can totally see what you’re talking about with the disguising nature of these boots.

      And even though I love animal prints, neither I nor my character would be caught dead in them.

    No. I would not wear these. They look like a sprained ankle waiting to happen.

    I would probably wear the zebra IF it wasn’t that ridiculous texture. I’m sorry, my shoes should not be furry unless I am wearing slippers. Simple as that.

    Perhaps you’d have to be on ‘ashish to wear ’em…

    NO. Under no conditions, one should not walk out looking a cross between a trannie and a fawn. Let it go.

    Of COURSE! I would wear these until my feet turn into this shape. Since McQueen it’s all about the big feet against tiny legs, with big hips and tiny waist. I love the proportions and they’d make any outfit look chic. How can you not fall in love with them!
