Off the Rack: Zebra Flats, Sparkly Heels and More at Target

A walk down Target's shoe aisle is like getting a quick lesson in Fall Shoe Trends 101: For 2010, we're seeing ladylike heels, open-toe boots, animal prints, menswear-inspired oxfords, velvet-looking fabrications, shoeties, greige (gray + beige) and clogs. Scan your wardrobe, check your pulse, then pick one or two top trends to incorporate into your wardrobe this season. I'm on the hunt for the perfect leopard flats (Target's option is genuine suede, a definite plus) and a peep-toe boot (love the ones shown above but wonder about the comfort factor.) I recently bought two pairs of Dolce Vita for Target boots on sale (I know, I know, I changed my mind about them and caved!) so no more shoes for Ms. BB for a while. How about you, any Target shoe styles you'd recommend to a friend?

More pics after the jump.

I love target, so when I found these( I was in heaven! They are a great boot and they fit well over skinny jeans and/or leggings. I bought them in Tan, but they come in Gray or Black as well. I believe that the Black were featured on this website before.

For the local Target is missing 97% of these I've been looking for the leopard flats for weeks. They do have a lot of super cute booties out tho!

I absolutely need those black lace ups with the metal detailing. What word is it that I want that describes that? Alas, I live in Canada now and they have not a Target. Those shoes are absolutely killer though. Thanks for the post, BB. You're rad.

Were booties popular back then too? I don't remember this haha

Those grey peep-toe booties are my fav of the bunch, but I would wonder too about how comfy they are. Depending on the material they're made of, they could stretch out a bit maybe?
