These paw pumps were spotted on Sarah Jessica Parker and Blake Lively, who, incidentally, are two of Hollywood’s most fearless and fun-loving when it comes to fashion. SJP wore her pair with a glorious Giambattista Valli red caped gown (they’re buried under the dress somewhere in the picture below), while Blake Lively wore hers to film an episode of Gossip Girl (we actually dared Blake Lively to wear the Louboutin lion paw pumps here, and she took us up on it!).

Now, getting back to the Vivienne Westwood Anglomania + Melissa pumps, their tops, honestly, do look more like toes instead of paws, but these are the closest and possibly the cheapest we can get to the Louboutin lion paws.
They also come in this black color, which we think would really weird people out when they see the toes:
Quite the conversation pieces, aren’t they?
