Wearing cheetah print shoes don't make you faster.
A shoe is an item of footwear intended to protect and comfort the human
foot while the wearer is doing various activities. Shoes are also
used as an item of decoration and fashion. One of the ways to embellish
the appearance of footwear is to make the shoe look similar to an animal
Animal print is a footwear and fashion style in which the garment or
shoe is made to resemble the pattern of the skin and fur of an animal such
as a leopard, cheetah, zebra, tiger, spotted hyena, striped hyena, giraffe
Traditionally, shoes have been made from leather, wood or canvas, but
they are increasingly made from rubber, plastics, and other petrochemical-derived
materials. Most materials can be decorated with an animal print design.
Animal prints have long been a popular style for many reasons. For one,
they are generally expensive and considered rather exotic; hence they are
a symbol of wealth and status. Animal print became popular for women
in the United States in the late 1960s during the Bohemian movement.

Shoemaking is the process of making footwear. Originally, shoes were
made one at a time by hand. Traditional handicraft shoemaking has now been
largely superseded in volume of shoes produced by industrial mass production
of footwear, but not necessarily in quality, attention to detail, or craftsmanship.
Part of the process may include printing. At that stage of the footwear
manufacturing process, the shoes can be decorated with various patterns
such as animal print designs.
