Possibly the most badass boots I’ve ever bought

I normally wouldn’t, but I did.

These leopard print boots from Zara are totally impractical, or are they? I saw them a few weeks ago in the Bahnhofstrasse Zara here in Zurich. I passed them. Came back. Tried them on. Took them off. Put them back. And left the store.

And kicked myself for weeks.

I stopped kicking myself long enough to check out Zara online (Swiss store). They had them, but not in my size. You may want to give the US store a shot if you’re so inclined.

I soon kicked myself back to the physical Zara store, full expecting them to be sold out of the boots.

Lo and behold, they weren’t.

And they’re now mine.

Woo hoo!

Woo hoo!

The key to wearing these is to pair them with a simple outfit:

Denim shirts don't tuck well.

If you want to do the tuck-in-the-front thing, try a shirt with a thinner fabric.

Looks like I’m late to the party though.

In any case, I’m tempted to wear them to the office. I’ll report back if I do.
