At a time when the phrase “peep toe with bow” tends to mean almost exactly the same thing every time, I have to give River Island some credit for turning it into something different in this case.
They’ve achieved this, first of all by deciding to make the shoe a mule: a brave decision, since this style is one of the harder ones to wear, with nothing to hold the foot in place. Secondly, they’ve made it a rather unusually shaped mule, with that high, curved side. Finally, just to top it all off, they’ve made it available in two colourways, both of which are a little more interesting than standard black or gold.
What do you think of the results, though? I’m veering wildly between love and hate: which is it for you?
