Footpatrol's ace giraffe shoe


Animal print is usually an instant style fail as far as we're concerned, but a collaboration between Japanese designers UBIQ and Footpatrol has provided a unique exception.

The Fatima Mid 'Giraffe' takes inspiration from the giraffe's (or kanji's) representation as a mythical and magical creature in numerous Asian countries. A faux-fir giraffe upper is paired off with a tan leather heel - etched with the Yoshida Shide, a mark of purification within Japanese culture.

Available from Footpatrol for £70, we guarantee you'll be the only person at the first summer barbecue wearing giraffe print shoes.
