It's official: the "Purr-Fect Ankle Boot" is the winner of this year's BEST. SHOE. EVER!
Selected from over 3,800 entries, judges Lisa Stern (FAMOUS), Jodie Fox (Shoes of Prey), Jules Sebastian (stylist) and Lisa Iuele (THE ICONIC) adored this design for its mix of wow-factor and wearability.
"Every girl loves a bit of leopard," says Lisa, "and the boost of height from that 6-inch platform makes them even better."
For Jules, the deciding factor was the use of studs ("there's a hint of punk, but it's not OTT") while Jodie was impressed with the shape: "Everyone is looking for the perfect ankle boot right now - and this is it."
Designer Gabrielle R described her towering booties as the ultimate statement piece.
"I'm obsessed with leopard print and have always associated it with glamorous women. While this is a bold shoe, it's still something you can wear everyday - that can be dressed up or down but gives every look that excitement that comes from the perfect pair of shoes."
