Reptile treatments update classic shoe silhouettes for spring. Whether in a pump or sandal form, the trend shape-shifts basic leather into scutes and scales. Aquazzura's floral sandal uses a snakeskin-embossed leather as its blank canvas. Diane von Furstenberg's slingback is cut from a printed snakeskin leather in grey. Claudia Ciuti's leather sandal assumes a tritone metallic snakeskin finish. Alejandro Ingelmo's patent leather pump is amplified with a holographic embossed-crocodile treatment. Whatever the species of choice, innovation in the approach is key.
