The Kirkwood-esque style of the platform on these shoes may not endear them to some of you, but it was the very thing that attracted me to them when they popped up on the River Island website last week. Without the studs, these would’ve veered dangerously close to “Barbie” territory: with them… well, actually, there’s still pretty close to “Barbie” territory, aren’t they? They’re in the same county, at the very least, and possibly even in the same town. If that bothers you, however, there’s also a dark green, croc-effect version (I know: green shoes which HAVEN’T been featured here! They actually look more black than green to me, though, so there’s why).
While we’re on the subject of River Island and pink, by the way, look at this:
I know, it’s not a shoe, which makes this a totally gratuitous addition to this post, but I love it. Sadly, I can’t wear this shade of pink because it looks horrendous on me, but there is also a black version. Which, just to bring this back on topic (vaguely) would look great with the pink shoes. Or, you know, ANY shoes….
