Tod's Snakeskin Flats

After years of same old flats from Tod's, SG is ready for something new. Well, Tod's is not disappointing SG this fall. Savvy Sister and I are drooling over this pair of snakeskin flats. SS has ordered a pair in taupe snakeskin but I am debating over the color blue or red. FYI, there are only 12 pairs available in each color (all sizes combine) at Tod's boutiques nationwide. The only not so savvy thing is the price at $795. These flats are so soft and comfortable. Toe box is also narrower, making a gal's feet appearing skinnier. Also the shoe is cut lower on the side which is beneficial to those gals with a lower ankle bone.SG tried on a pair of brown suede in the same style and fell in love with the fit and comfort. I am convinced narrow toe box makes my feet appearing skinnier.
In the past, SG had to forgo buying certain shoes because sides are cut too high, which cuts into my ankle bone making the shoe unbearable to wear. So gals, savvy worthy or not so much?

  1. Those flats are pretty cool... I like snakes in general, however I'm not so sure about using real snake skin... but I rather like snakes a good bit! I wanted to get a little gardener snake, but my mom won't let me keep a snake in the house! :P

  2. I love the brown suede ones! The snakeskin ones, I'm on the fence; they're a bit too shiny for me, haha. But still very cool =]

  3. Aw, thank you. That means a lot, you know? I was experimenting with something new, so this wonderful feedback only makes me feel like trying out even more new outfit ideas for the blog!! :) Thank you.

    By the way, you make me feel like resurrecting my flats, I haven't worn any of mine in AGESS, your post just made me realize how much I miss their unparalleled comfort and chic look! <3

  8. The brown suede is so lovely!

    The snakeskine ones are alright but I'd imagine they'd be hard to match with outfits...

  13. They're beautiful, but $795? It had better be real snakeskin for that price!
