It’s a zoo out there, or so fashion would like us to believe. It seems like animal prints, especially leopard-inspired ones, are the new black. While styling animal prints may not look like an easy feat at first, that’s actually not the case — especially when it comes to footwear. And that’s good news for everyone in the market for a nice pair of shoes that go with everything.

Leopard flats will not only make your life a lot more comfortable, but they will also elevate any outfit to (chicer) new heights. Instead of opting for the good old jeans/leggings and sneakers combo next time you head to the airport, go for a pair of leopard loafers and earn major style points. Slip-on shoes are also a lot easier to take on and off, which will make passing through security a breeze.

And whatever your personal style happens to be — sporty, preppy, or casual — chances are designers have already given the leopard treatment to a pair of shoes that will match it.

Don’t believe us? From slip-ons to ballet flats and espadrilles, take a walk on the wide side with these stylish leopard flats.
