Red River Island court shoes, £45
Pointed toes have dominated the shoe world recently, but I know there are quite a few of you out there who still prefer a more rounded toe on a shoe, so here’s a pair just for you!
These shoes are by River Island, who I’ve been rather obsessed with lately: they’ve been doing a great line in full skirts (Which are my OTHER Kryptonite), and, well, I’ve always been a fan of their footwear, so no surprises there. This is a really nice, classic pump. with just enough of a platform to balance out the height of the heel. They might not be as fashionable as the pointed styles that are around at the moment, but they’ll never go out of style, and the red upper makes them that bit sassier than the style would normally be. Oh, and they also come in pink and black, so if you’ve been on the hunt for round-toe courts at a decent price, look no further!
How to save these shoes?
Despite the bright colour, I always feel like rounded toes have a rather “sensible” feel to them, and what could be more “sensible” than a pencil skirt?
OK, so “sensible” possibly isn’t the word I’m looking for here. Red and gold is always a good idea, though, as far as I’m concerned, and the festive season provides a great excuse to wear both of those colours. Don’ worry, though: there’ll be plenty of opportunities to wear shoes like these during the rest of the year, too…
I much prefer a rounded toe so I am a big fan of these.
