I can always depend on River Island to provide me with a good selection of winter boots.
Literally, I mean. River Island have provided me with quite a few pairs of boots over the years, and there’s at least two pairs in my collection right now. They do a great line in sleek knee and over-the-knee boots which look more expensive than they actually are, and it looks like the Autumn/Winter 2013 collection is no exception.
While I really like the boots, however, I’m a little less impressed by most of the shoes on offer here. The two-part pumps and low loafers have a real 90s/early 00s vibe for me, and that’s just a little too recent a fashion era for me to want to revisit it anytime soon. In fact, I’m pretty sure I was forced to wear a pair of those black loafers (Well, ones very like them, anyway) back in high school, and “forced” is the operative word there, so to say I don’t like this style would be an understatement.
Still, that’s just me, and, as always with these previews, this is just a very small selection of the winter collection, so I’m sure there’ll be something to take my fancy: there almost always is with River Island!
Is there something to grab yours, though? Take a look at the gallery and tell me what you think!
