ponyskin-shoes.pngPonyskin is a huge trend in footwear at the moment, but if you don't want to harm any actual ponies, the good news is that the looks is easy to fake. Plenty of high street brands are stocking faux-ponyskin shoes and boots, with some impressive results.

We love Topshop's "faux-po" wedges, which look brilliant in this ink blue shade that's just bright enough to show off the hairiness of the fabric's surface. It's definitely a close contender for the real thing.

The wedge itself is painted black, giving the boot a very chic, urban look.
