Would You Wear… (Faux) Fur Heels?

Fashion often works like trickle-down economics. Don’t worry; we’re not going to get political here. The bottom line is that if you’ve seen the infamous The Devil Wears Prada cerulean sweater scene, then you have a pretty good idea of how the system operates. Trends can be born in grassroots form, but often they can be predicted by what unusual things strut down the runway.

That’s where this latest trend comes into play. It may not be mainstream yet, but it is too bold of a high end fashion statement to be ignored: furry heeled shoes are dominating the runway and expensive department stores. While fuzzy toe-toppers, like the ones pictured here, may not be the most practical for inclement weather, we can see fashion-forward ladies rocking them at an event.

Fur-trimmed pumps are not ideal for everyday use, so we don’t recommend dropping an entire paycheck on them. Besides, the only styles available right now appear to be high-end. However, once our favorite fast fashion stores start stocking them on their shelves, we may pick up an inexpensive pair to step up our footwear game.

    I probably wouldn’t wear these because they seem like they would be hard to keep clean. Plus, it looks more like something you’d wear with your animal costume on Halloween.

    These shoes look really costume like and I can’t imagine them looking good with any kind of everyday outfit.

    I’ll keep the teddy bears in my childhood room, not on my feet.

    Honestly, I think they look a bit ridiculous. Maybe someone, somewhere can pull them off, but I think this is something that would be better off staying on the runway.

    Even though these are only available from high-end brands, it looks like you could easily create a DIY pair… if you really wanted. I’m still not sure how I feel about the look in general!

    They kind of make you look like a Clydesdale….

    Not necessarily a bad thing. Clydesdales are majestic.
