5 Non-Basic Ways to Flaunt Snakeskin Footwear

Move over cheetah, reptiles are having having a moment.

Animal prints are all the rage this fall, and while cheetah and leopard are virtually everywhere, snakeskin is not taking a backseat. Snakeskin’s typically muted color scheme lends itself to be easily incorporated as a neutral, in the form of bold jackets, belts, pants, and accessories.

A popular way to don the trend is footwear — as it can be defused by a simple black turtleneck and jeans or amplified by mixing it with another pattern. Here’s where to go to get this hot-print shoe locally.

Quezia Bootie by Dusano

The snakeskin bootie is the classic way to conservatively incorporate the daring print. These Dusano boots feature embossed leather and an ankle-hugging design. The 2.25 inch black block heel and the round toe offer optimal comfort. Ideal for pairing with tucked in jeans or tights.

Jessa Velvet Loafer

For a more formal take on the trend, consider a pair of elegant flats, like these loafers.

Featuring python print, velvet upper, and oversized chain link hardware design, they are eye-catching, without being ostentatious. A metal-plated stacked heel makes for a grounded step, instead of a slither.

Women’s Maria Block Heel Tall Boots by Aqua

Forget blending in — stand out in these knee-high boots, which are part of Bloomingdale’s exclusive collection. With an inside zipper, pointed toe, and printed three-inch block heel in the same standard snakeskin pattern, these are sure to make a statement.

Kate Sneaker by Vintage Havana

A different take on traditional black and white snakeskin, these Vintage Havana sneakers are  bold and gold, with metallic details and a statement star. The kicks, which are a slip-on style, have a leather upper and are intentionally distressed, with a deliberate dirty outsole — a trend originally made popular by Golden Goose and later, Gucci.

La Dinastia Vaquera by Dos De Oro

The Little Ranch Boots

For authentic Tex-Mex-style apparel and accessories, this unique store is the go-to. These genuine cowboy boots feature a traditional style, with a cool flair — a brown snakeskin upper. And while cowboy boots can often run you into the upper hundreds and even thousands of dollars, this stylish pair is priced moderately so you can get in on the trend, without breaking the bank.
