I'm sure all of us have had a pair of leather shoes in our lifetime'which is why leather shoes are a must-have in any woman's wardrobe. There are tons of fabulous designs out there in the market that any woman can appreciate. So here are my top picks in leather shoes.
1. Athletic Shoes: Pastry Glam Pie Sneakers
The Pastry sneaker line, by Vanessa and Angela Simmons, is definitely a fierce line of athletic shoes for women. Personally, I'm ecstatic that there is finally a line of girly athletic footwear. That's why the Glam Pie hi-top sneaker for $50 is my pick for best leather sneaker. It comes in a variety of adorable color combinations like brown and baby blue or pink and purple. But what I love most about this leather sneaker is its eyelet leather panel that's displayed on the sides of the shoe; which is something rarely seen in sneaker designs. Also its retro 80's hi-top look makes it feel young and hip.
2. Boots: Pour La Victoire Jeana Patent Granny Boot
Remember the story about the old woman who lived in a shoe? Well, this Pour La Victoire Jeana leather boot reminds me of that'only much chicer. These beautiful granny boots with yellow patent leather is an awesome choice for any fashion risk-taker. With its lace-ups and high heels'not to mention its fabulous color'this boot definitely has a 60's mod look to it. So for those women looking for a fabulous and unique leather boot, look no further, because these boots are the perfect choice.
3. Pumps: Miss Sixty Jess Peep Toe Pump
Everybody always go back to the basics. And the Miss Sixty Jess Pump is definitely a classic staple that every woman should have. From the boardroom to the club, a good pair of black leather peep toe pumps always deliver. These particular leather pumps are great because of its simple design, playful peep toe and ultra high heel. Plus with a price tag of only $70, who wouldn't want these shoes?
4. High Heel Sandals: Balmain Giuseppe Zanotti for Balmain Gladiator Sandals
From the runways to the soles of the hottest celebrities, we all know that an ultra high, ultra sexy, pair of gladiator sandals are in. But these fierce Balmain Gladiator Sandals'take the cake. Costing at a whopping $1,200, I doubt that the average Joe (or in this case Joanne) could afford this hot leather shoe'but a girl can dream. The sandal comes in unique pebbled leather, a sexy 4-inch stiletto, dozen of straps that come up to your calves, and edgy silver studs that are meticulously placed throughout the sandal. With all this going on in one shoe, what isn't there to love?
5. Flat Sandals: Pour La Victoire Ella Sandal
here are a lot of flat sandals in the stores, but I have to say the Ella Sandal by Pour La Victoire ranks up there on the top of my list. These leather sandals (which come in an adorable pink snakeskin print), definitely combines soft'almost romantic designs'with hard material elements. One of the most striking features has to be the beautifully constructed leather ruffle with zipper trim, adhered on the top of the sandal. Although it might be pricey for some at $215, it is still a great pick for summer.
Leather shoes are always a staple in any woman's closet. So, if you don't have a leather sandal or a pair of leather pumps, what are you waiting for?
