Snakeskin Boots (For $32) Review


Breaking news: snakeskin is trending for fall. Oh wait, you already knew that. Because it's EVERYWHERE! And, unlike leopard print, it's not always a slam dunk style wise. Snakeskin is a little more aggressive, a little more 'hard core' haute couture if you catch my drift. With that in mind, you have to pick your snakeskin pieces more carefully. Which color/tone print would you wear more -- gray/white, or brown/black? Do you want to wade into the trend slowly with a pair of chic flat mules, or are you going for the triple-flip-twist off the high dive with knee-high stiletto booties?

I first tried the snakeskin fall trend with these $40 flat mules I actually wear on the weekly. But, with the weather cooling off (sort of) I decided to add a snakeskin ankle bootie to my shoe collection for warmer tootsies these next few months. First, I established a set of criteria to guide my shoe shopping journey (because it doesn't take much to get the starry eyed and burn a hole in my debit card!)

My criteria for shopping snakeskin boots include:

  • Must be affordable since I won't be wearing these as much as other boots in my closet.

  • Must go with 75% of my casual AND dressy casual wardrobes (think jeans, wide leg cropped pants, semi-casual dresses, skirts...)

  • Must feel comfortable for walking moderate distances. If these are going to be date night/event/GNO shoes they better not cause me to face plant on a downtown sidewalk.

Going down the rabbit holes of Google and the LikeToKnow.It app (which truly is a search engine for fashion suggestions) I found this brown pair for only $32! I was skeptical, believe me. But I ran them through all my mental stylist checks and criteria and they came out winners.

Here's a breakdown of why I chose these Boohoo snakeskin booties:

  • Price: Only $32

  • Style: Pointed toe (more modern) with a chunky heel (easy for walking)

  • Color: Tan with black, meaning they can be worn with both brown and black-based outfits.

  • Height: The taller shaft makes them more compatible with midi skirts and dresses, which is my preferred length and what I like to wear in the fall/winter.

  • Comfort: I only knew this once I got them, but WOW they are remarkable comfortable. They're very cushiony under the ball of your foot.

  • Material: Synthetic so no animals were harmed in the making of these shoes.

  • Fit: True to size, and equally well fitted with or without socks.

  • Return Policy: Despite the cheap price, they could be returned for a fall refund within 28 days of delivery had I changed my mind.

Anything else you want to know about these boots? What criteria do you use to evaluate a good purchase?


I scouted out some more brown snakeskin print ankle booties that pass muster with moi. They start at just $32 (my boots) and go up to the $200 threshold for a pair of Marc Fishers just to show what is available via different designers and price points.
