3 Ways to Style Leopard Shoes

3 Ways to Style Leopard Shoes

Tips for Incorporating Leopard Shoes Into Your Every Day Style

Repeat after me: leopard is a neutral, leopard is a neutral! Now look in your closet and tell me if you see a pair of leopard shoes of any kind? If so, amazing. If not, it's times to take the step (no pun intended) into everyone's favorite print. When styling leopard shoes the key is to remember that the print acts as a neutral and can be styled almost any way black shoes can be styled. See my tips below for ways to incorporate leopard shoes into your every day style: 


1.  For Work

for the office. 

The Stella goes great with cropped trouser styles or capris in colors like khaki, navy or black. Then top it off with a blouse and blazer to achieve a polished professional look. 

There are a few great work-appropriate leopard shoe styles at  Sole Searching, check them out here.




2.  Date Night

Leopard heels are a must for that romantic night out! And we think we have found the perfect pair of leopard heels. Introducing the amazing Safara, (available in plus sizes only). 

What outfits pair well with leopard heels? Wrap dresses or pencil skirts add a feminine touch. If you prefer pants, try black jeans and a simple top and let the heels be the statement piece. 





3.  Casual

Roxy Leopard Flats Not a heels kind of girl? Leopard loafers or flats can easily spice up any casual outfit. 

Tip: when reaching for your go-to black shoes, switch them out for a leopard pair; you'll be surprised by the new pep in your step.  

It's safe to say that we can all find a pair of jeans and a blazer in the closet which means this casual look is as easy as finding a great pair of leopard shoes. Speaking of, Sole Searching has one of the best leopard prints in town - Roxy Leopard Flats.

Shoe Storage & Organisation Tips

Shoe Storage & Organisation Tips

Make room for more shoes and wear all of the existing ones you have!

We've all been there: Sole Searching for a specific pair of shoes to go with the day's outfit only to find that they're missing in action! And by MIA I mean hidden behind tons of other shoes in the cupboard, shoved in a corner, or pushed deep under the bed. The struggle is definitely real, especially in our larger sizes! 



What's the point of having pairs and pairs of gorgeous footwear when you can't find them? Even worse, what are the chances you'll remember owning the shoes if you don't see them neatly organised in the closet? With a few simple changes you'll be able to quickly scan all the shoes you own and find the right pair for the day's adventure. Even better, you'll have more room for new pairs! Check out our four organising tips below: 

Sole Searching Footwear - Shoe Rack 1.  Stacked Shoe Racks

Space. We all need more space, but sadly space doesn't just manifest itself out of nowhere - or does it? Think up! Typically there is  1-2 ft between where the cupboard floor and the bottom of your hanging clothes meet; utilise this space, all of it!


Tip: To get double or triple the floor space, buy stackable shoe racks to create 2 -3 extra rows of storage. This could mean the difference of storing 10 pairs of shoes vs 30 pairs. Shoe closet game changer! 


If your closet is deep don't forget to take advantage of the depth - line up racks 2 deep to create extra big shelves.

A few of our favorite stackable shoe racks: 
TJUSIG Shoe Rack - from IKEA
Stackable Shoe Rack in Chrome - Freedom Furniture
Extendable Shoe Rack - Kmart 






2.  Organise by Season & Wear-ability

If you live in a city that has extreme seasons take a minute to analyse your shoe organisation. Are the sandals front and center even though its -10 degrees outside? Are your Uggs blocking everyday work heels?


Easy fix: at the beginning of every season take an inventory of your shoes and swap out styles that won't see the light of day for another 90-180 days. This could mean placing boots in a storage box under the bed or throwing sandals in a bin hidden in the garage. Also be sure to put your everyday styles where they are easily accessible. Implementing both fixes will make shoes choices a lot more focused and mornings a lot easier.




3.  Purge

Two words: closet cleanout. No matter how hard it may be to get rid of your 1990s boots, it's time. Consistently purging and donating shoes (and clothes) is the best way to keep closets organised. 

Besides, the more room you have is an excuse to buy more new shoes!! 

Tip: answer the question "when was the last time I wore these?" If the answer is more then a year prior, it's time to move on. The only time this may not be the case if you're holding a pair of classic high quality boots / shoes that may be an investment style. 









4.  Save Space by Alternating

The easiest space-saving trick in the book: alternate the positioning of every shoe. What does this mean? Right shoe faces out and the left shoe faces back, condensing their over all surface area and allowing for more shoes in a row. This works especially well for high heels!


Implement all four of these tips and you'll have one organised shoe strategy! Who knows, maybe you'll even make room for a few more pairs!

Jessica Dee | Very Special Wedding Shoes

We recently had the pleasure of  supplying some very beautiful shoes for a very beautiful lady... Jessica Dee of Too Many Sequins.

When Jess first contacted us, she had recently been proposed too and soon discovered she was expecting a little angel! Of course this meant she needed super comfy heels for her special day! Jess picked none other than the Helen in Dusty Pink. And wow, she looked incredible! 

Sneak peek below ;) Click on the image for more pics...

Ever wanted to be a shoe designer?

Custom Made Shoes - Your Design. Your Size.  
Shoes provide the foundation for the image that we want to broadcast to the world.  We wear them as a way to play with aspects of our identity in a less committed way than any other visible marker such as a haircut or hair color. We can change that message every day or more if we choose.
Would you like to have some creative input into your shoe design and make them a true reflection of your style? Perhaps you have a special occasion to attend and found the outfit but struggling to find the shoes to match, let alone in your shoe size.  
We would love to work with you to custom create what ever your heart desires!

If you have a particular design in mind, Sole Searching can make your shoe dreams a reality.

Some examples of previous custom creations for our customers. 

Now it's your chance to express yourself.  


It's easy t o create a custom pair of shoes as unique as you are. From your dream design to your doorstep, we take care of everything in between. And here's how.
  Step 1Email us a picture of your dream shoe design (or something similar)
  Step 2. Along with your picture, let us know the important details (colour, size, heel height,        materials, any other modifications etc)
  Step 3. Sit back and relax and we will come back to you with a quote and delivery date!
*Please allow 3 to 5 weeks from the time of payment to the exciting delivery of your personalised shoes!


Shoes for a greater cause!

Through the sales and support of our amazing customers, we were able to give 15 children in need, a months worth of of grain seeds + access to clean water. THANK YOU from the bottom of our heart!
