Get Your Stripes on With Zebra Print Boots

Zebra print boots are galloping onto the feet of men, women and children these days.

The Zebra print is one of the many animal prints that have taken their place among the favorite prints of fashion-conscious boot-wearers all around the world. Rather than an exotic option, zebra print boots are now an exciting fashion staple that complement any outfit.

Surprisingly, animal prints are showing up more and more on Western boots! Women's styles range from Lucchese's new Cowgirl Collection, where $499 will get you a pair in zebra with genuine crocodile wingtips, to Justin's Gypsy Collection, where a women's 8-Inch print on a golden background retails for around $95. Men, too, can get their stripes on with some Corral Boot Co. cowboy style in zebra on genuine stingray skin.

Christian Louboutin Arielle zebra print boots anchor the other end of the fashion spectrum with $299 lambskin on 4-1/5-inch heels. For fashionistas on a budget, Fahrenheit stands out with a pair of zebra platform 5-inch stiletto knee highs for just $35. All that jazz and a bargain, too!

If the thought of knee-high stilettos makes you dizzy, another splashy option is Pleaser Brand pointy toe zebra ankle with 3-3/4-inch heels by Devilish Disguise for around $50. A bit more upscale are the Jessica Bennett in leather with calf hair upper and a 3-inch heel at $190.

Children get in on the zebra rodeo with several options, especially in rain gear. Those stripes give big importance to little feet. Girls have a few more options than boys, unfortunately, with leather side-zip from Lamour. Guess boys will just have to wear their rain boots for now, and wait until they can get big-boy Western boots in stripes like Dad.
