Leopard print is EVERYWHERE!!!
I mean, a few years ago, this might’ve looked cheesy or trashy, but lately designers are just doing it right. The cool thing is that I’ve always thought of animal print as a more feminine trend, but here are a few cool options that make it cool for a guy to wear.
I’m starting off on the wrong foot cause technically this is cheetah, but it goes to show that guys are getting in n the animal action. Plus, it’s also floral.
Back to leopard, we have this collaboration from XLARGE and Madfoot! that wen’t all match-matchy. I don’t know if i love it, but i’ll give it a try.
Talking about match-matchy, that old rule about matching your shoes to your belt, you can do that with this one by Grin & Berrett (Best name ever for a company).
The Versace for H&M Collection also helped the trend, offering jackets, shirts and caps with colorful leopard print.
Supra has an entire line of leopard printed sneakers. The Assault, Cutler and Wrap actually look pretty cool in this pattern.
Another cool leopard sneaker is the Alien Stomper by Reebok. From all the animal printed sneakers I’ve seen, i think these are by far my faves. The pattern isn’t overwhelming but compliments the style of the shoe. Pretty cool.
Coming in a close second is the Adidas Forum Mid.
One of the kings of shoes is Mr Louboutin. He never fails to impress with his men’s offerings. His popular Rantus Orlato sneaker gets the wild treatment with leopard pony (huh?). Here it goes.
One of my favorite designers for his over the top fashion, Jeremy Scott, has created THIS. Would i wear it? No. Is it crazy? Yes. Is it cool? HELL YES!
Now, i love topsiders and to this day i only have 1 pair and they’re like beige and suede. Not your traditional shoe, but this one goes even further. The Yuketen Country Ranger has gone wild.
Vans and puma are in on the trend too.
It should be noted, that it’s not always the traditional leopard print. Some are using it in greys or even colored. Like these White Mountaneering sneakers.
Or these parkas made in collaboration by Supreme and North Face.
And that is not always sneakers, wingtips are going animal kingdom too.
Enough animal prints, they got me going wild. Are you gonna be spotted wearing these?
