[Quest]Leopard Pumps

*UPDATE [1/9/12]: After spending time with family during Christmas and New Years, my whole opinion on these wedges changed. I went into Payless with my cousin during the holidays and fell in love with the nude patent color and was destined to buy it, until I found out they weren't on sale anymore and my 40% off code had expired! Booooooo! I still really want these comfortable steals so detailed post coming soon if I purchase them!
Hi everyone, I'm not sure what inspired me but I've definitely gotten into loving prints... My wardrobe consists of monotone scheme colored clothing. Usually black, gray, and white and nothing that's animal printed for what I can remember... But lately I've been on the hunt for the perfect leopard printed pumps.
I stopped in at Payless yesterday with my sister for she wanted to try on a pair of fluffy insole moccasin slipper-shoes. On the tall shelfs of shoes surrounded by the Christian Siriano for Payless collection, I spotted a pair of leopard printed wedges were surprisingly comfortable.

Shoes: Kylie Wedge Pump in 6 1/2 Wide at Payless (Buy: here)
Comes in 3 other suede colors: Black, Grey, & Red. Also available in nude patent.

The leopard design feels like suede, super soft! The cork wedge is 3 inches but definitely does not feel like 3". These almond toe wedges are so comfortable I can imagine walking around in them all day and not have a problem with sore feet after. My big peeve is heels/shoes that have a hard/plastic feel and these were definitely not the case. Material was soft and because it's a wedge shoe, it was easy to walk in. I love the leopard design and it looks so pretty from the front view. I'm not sure if I'm loving the cork wedge but these shoes were kind of inexpensive on sale now for $19.99 original priced for $26.99.

Undecided if I should go back and purchase these because I wasn't really looking for a wedged shoe but I can't get over how comfortable these are!
If you have any suggestions for real leopard printed pumps, let me know below! I'm looking for at least 3 inches, round/almond toe, no platform, pony hair/suede, and with a heel.

Thanks for reading!
