100 Pairs of Patterned Shoes

From Wild Safari-Ready Sneakers to Patriotic Platforms

— October 9, 2013 — Fashion
This collection of patterned shoes celebrates a wide variety of different prints on casual footwear. The vast majority of these shoes are sneakers with animal prints. This includes leopard, snake skin, zebra and many other safari styles. Several other graphics are inspired by natural phenomenon, like galaxy prints, trees, clouds and florals. Cartoons are well-represented among these quirky kicks. Others are more traditional prints like polka dots, stripes, studs and checkers.

The large number of differently patterned shoes shows the enormous market for casual kicks. Wearers consider it to be an expression of self, rather than of convenience. Many sneaker fanatics are also collectors, hunting for as many differently designed pairs of shoes as possible. With the number of animal-print shoes out there, they could quickly amass a veritable menagerie.
