chloe-python-shoes.jpgChloe is one of those odd labels with a knack not only for the outlandishly daring, but for the utterly classical, too. Take these python pumps for example: they're a simple enough design 'recipe', but they're prepared to perfection.

The front half of the pump is composed of premiums patent leather, while the back is capped with exotic python skin. The toe is mostly rounded with just enough of an almond-shaped point to keep the shoes looking sleek and elegant.
