I know that orange is a color people either love or hate, so if it’s not your thing, this design will look just as spectacular in a number of different colors. I designed it around a plant theme, with cat’s paw lace on the front (this motif is very reminiscent of the blossoms on the mock orange in our front yard) and a cascade of leaves running down the back of the leg and the heel flap. Green would be another obvious choice for these nature-inspired beauties.
