Shoes-day: Ann Taylor Leandra Haircalf Platform Shooties

Today, I have the Ann Taylor Leandra Haircalf Platform Shootie. They come in Classic Camel and Black. I purchased a size 7 which is my normal shoe size.

Description from Ann Taylor: We love the textured sheen rich haircalf gives to these sleek pair. Haircalf with smooth patent leather binding. Round toe. Padded leather footbed for complete comfort. Leather sole. 4 1/4″ heel. Hidden 1/2″ platform compares to 3 3/4″ heel.

This is the Classic Camel. It’s actually a small-spot Leopard print.  

Even though the heel is very high the hidden platform helps bring this to a manageable (IMO) 3 3/4 inches. I can’t comment too much on the comfort factor yet but a friend of mine has these as well and wore them all day without any issues. She usually changes into a pair of flats sometime during the day and didn’t with these.

It is a loafer style with black patent trim and heel. The insole and sole are leather too.
The almond-shaped toe does not squish your toes. 

The print is symmetrical on both shoes. There is no discoloration anywhere in the calf-hair. 

Here are some similar options.

I am absolutely in love with these and can’t wait to wear them. What do you think of the Leandra?

    I think these shoes are lovely! I really really like them. I think if they had a thicker heel (because I'm a klutz), I would be snatching them up right now!

    I have this shoe in the perfect pump style and they are fabulous;) Great quality and the leather sole is very comfortable.

    oh my goodness, those are hot shoes, but the heel, so sharp, I would need a chunkier heel too.
