Animal-inspired shoes take on literal interpretations
Implications - Fashion consumers have always loved animal-inspired designs. In the past, the styles have usually hovered on subtle inspirations such as animal skin prints and textures, but now, designers are going literal, especially when it comes to footwear. These eccentric pieces feature everything from paw print and hoofed soles to crocodile-shaped heels. Consumers today are more daring when it comes to their fashion choices, which means that creations can be as literal -- and as bizarre -- as designers choose.
