Earlier this year I bought a pair of nude, studded pumps from River Island. Those shoes have definitely been one of my favourite purchases of the year so far, so when I saw that River Island had released a slingback version, I had to hold myself back. Especially when I realised they came in mint green.
These also come in black and white, and combine a classic, slingback shape with that prickly-looking upper. I loved the non-slingback version of these mostly because of their resemblance to Christian Louboutin’s studded ‘Pigalles’ (which they’ve been mistaken for on more than one occasion) and I like these too, although I think the green and white pairs will be a little less versatile than the black version.
If you preferred the pumps, meanwhile, you may be pleased to know that they’ve been re-released too, having sold out super-quickly back in January:
These are also £65, and you can find them here.
