River Island Brogues
Advantages: Stylish, great material, reasonably priced
With starting back work recently I have a bit of disposable income to spend on myself. I already have numerous pairs of sandals for the summer in every colour and shape you can think of so I decided to pick up some brogues instead as i can wear them in the Autumn and Winter and didn't want them to sell out before I had chance to pick them up.
Brogue's are an old design that have recently come back into fashion. They are quite feminine for what were, primarily, a masculine shoe. Brogue's are in the style of a formal man's shoe with a very small heel and some detailed piping all over and laces.
I picked up this brogues from River Island which is known for stocking the latests fashions so I know I could trust their products to be band on the trend. I'd seen brogues in Primark for £6 but instead decided to purchase these ones for £26.99 as I thought they'd be better quality as I was paying more.
The colour is a black/blue colour meaning that they go well with a lot of my outfits, to touch the shoe is quite soft yet sturdy and when I slipped them on they felt exactly the same on my feet. The sole is rubber and that feels thicker than the sole on the Primark brogues.
I've had these brogues for 5 weeks now and wear them religiously with anything-shorts, jeans, leggings, summer dresses, with or without tights etc. They still look as good as new which isn't much to vouch for after 5 weeks but they don't look like tearing or breaking any time soon they feel good quality under both hand and foot.
The brogues are very comfortable and I have even worn these on a night out so they are very durable and can be worn with anything. This makes their £26.99 price tag seem quite minimal as I have already got plenty of wear out of them and will continue to do so.
Overall, I would recommend these shoes whatever fashion sense you have, whatever season it may be I doubt you'd be disappointed!
