River Island studded slingbacks, £65
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.
I quite like the slingback version!
I bought the black version in the sales, but unfortunately me and slingbacks just don’t mix well, they keep falling off my feet, so I’m going to try to sell them. My first ever go at studded shoes has been a failure :(.
