Shoeperwoman’s Shoes: River Island ankle boots with straps and studs

river-island-ankle-bootsAs you can probably tell, I’m going through a bit of a “studs on everything” phase.

I spotted these ankle boots at River Island last week, and, well, I needed a new pair of ankle boots, so…

river-island-studded-bootsIn real life they have a bit of a sheen to them, although not as much as the flash on this photo would suggest. The uppers are more like a kinda brushed suede than a matt leather.


Excuse my ankle socks.

They have a concealed platform and about a 5″ heel, but so far seem quite comfortable to walk in.

(The dog wasn’t asked to pose like that, by the way – he comes running when he sees a camera!)


One thing that surprised me a little is that they don’t have a zip or anything: you just pull them on, which means they’re a little more difficult to get on and off than some other styles. Even so, I can see myself getting a lot of use out of these this coming winter…
