In a special partnership with Miami-based stylist, Irma Martinez (@IrmaStyle), these styles were designed using mystique of jungle cats as inspiration. Painted by hand by a Cuban-born ALEPEL artist, the leopard is indicative of opulence and uses gold tones throughout the rendering. Additionally, the leopard has a tiny emerald Swarovski crystal detail on the eye. This is the first ALEPEL style of its kind with this special detail. A portion of the proceeds of this style will benefit the pediatric hospital La Casa del Niño in Cartagena, Colombia. As this is a hand-painted shoe, we recommend handling with care. To clean, use a slightly damp cloth and gently clean the surface.
This style is Made-to-Order. Made to order styles are painted by our artists. Expect 14 business days of production time for you made-to-order pair.
