Men's Leopard Loafers: Get them before they become EXTINCT






We all know popular power house Christian Louboutin is the one stop shop for leopard loafers. However, it just frustrates me that top shoe designers like Steve Madden can make awesome, affordable leopard slippers (studs and all) for women (pictured above), but when it comes to men's shoes they fall short. Do WE not seek the same jenesequa when it comes to OUR fancy statement shoes? Can a man get a pony hair leopard loafer please (lol) *raises hand*? Now that I've gotten this rant of my chest that has been building for years with Steve, I decided to do my research and find some designers that were in tune with the times and also felt the need for men's leopard loafers.


Giacomorelli

I have been eyeing these for a few months now. One word comes to mind: PERFECTIONThis is an awesome pair of half leopard, half stud slippers from the Fall/Winter 2010 collection of Italian brand, GiacomorelliThese bad boys will run you $576 and surprisingly two years after their release, they are still available. Find the look here via ShopStyle.com. 

Talk about options... these kicks come in nude, royal blue, red

.......aaannnddd Olive and gray! (Round of Applause). Annnnddd.. to WOW you even more the Italian designer Giacomorelli is only 25. 


Yves Saint Laurent 

Here is a sleek dark brown patent leopard print Loafer from Yves Saint Laurent that embodies richness and luxury. It entails a dark brown and black leopard print all over, leather upper, round toe, and concludes with a leather heel. This shiny pair of sleek shoes will run you $750. Check them out here via Ssense. 




These driving loafers adorned in leopard print pony haircalf exude luxury and with a $850 price tag, we can see why. Featured on these loafers is a braided detail at the tongue with antique gold tone rivet details. The black blanket stitch at the toe makes for a moccasin style and really compliments the leopard print. Check them out via Ssense.




Check man of style Scott Disick out wearing a pair of YSL Babylone Leopard Moccasins that retail at $570 (great price). These driving moccasins feature Leopard-printed calfskin with tassels and a rubber sole. If you keep up with the Kardashians then you would know that Scott does a good job putting together outfits that look effortless, which to me is the #1 rule in style.

Jimmy Choo 
Adding to its already comprehensive men’s collection, Jimmy Choo presents another Sloan Slip-On for the audacious gentleman from its Spring Summer 2012 collection. The shoe features a leopard print upper made of 100% pony hair. and retails for $1,350. 


These loafers also come in gray carrying a black colorway. The sleek, low-profile design is outfitted with an all-over print, white contrast stitching and black outsoles. These Choo's are ticketed at $909.
