Slithering and Lustruous ... Keno Mary Janes Pumps by Nine West

‘Tis the season for, you guess it, exotic skin. Though the trend has been prevalent since few years back, it seems like the whole world can’t part with accoutrement or even clothing in reptile skin!

Albeit the real thing may cost you more than just limbs, that won’t make a good exc
use because Nine West knows how to satisfy your hunger pangs for everything slithering and exotic. Here it is … Keno pumps.

Is it made from real skin skinned from the slithering ones?

According to the site, the shoes are actually made using snakeskin print material. But thanks to its pristine and well-polished appearance, even the die-hard reptile skin goods collector will pass that as genuine!

Do reptile skin goods stay ‘a la mode’ forever?

Honey, if it is reptile, it’s ALWAYS a la mode. Since time could tell, humans have been fascinated by the design and structure of reptile skins like snakes, alligators, lizards, and also crocodiles. So if you’re a seldom buyer type (those who buy shoes like once in the entire year), then buying pieces in reptile skin should be a worthy fashion investment.

I love the brilliant colours. They look Japanese to me.

Yes, you are absolutely right. Even the name itself (Keno) is Japanese as well. If we look closer, you can see that the snakeskin pattern and the iridescent colours are similar to traditional Japanese lacquer motif.

Okay, say if I pick this shoe, then tell me with what should I pair it?

A snakeskin bag of sorts! But if you prefer to match your shoes with something that looks exactly or slightly similar, then I suggest you sister bag Too Hot to Cross Top Zip Clutch. A statement-making piece, it has interior nylon lining, pockets and a detachable strap.

How much do I need to fork out for the fabulous shoe?

The Keno Mary Janes retails at US$89.00 or equivalent to RM 310.40 a pair, while the chic Too Hot to Cross Top Zip Clutch retails at US$49.00 (RM 170.90).

Where can I get them?

They are available now at all Nine West stores across the globe as well as on Nine West online store.
