I'm always drawn to Nina boots and shoes but never really buy them- it's difficult to sell vintage shoes to begin with, but it's even more difficult to sell a label that isn't a designer label. I bought these for two reasons- they have never been worn and they are sooo sexy! These boots remind me of Samantha Foxx. They are almost knee high, with a short heel. The foot is solid black but from the ankle up the suede is printed with a leopard print. It is difficult to tell by the photos but there is a slight metalic sheen to the print.
