“ Brand: River Island / Type: Ballerina „
Just as I finally get around to making my shoe obsession pay by writing reviews on here, DooYoo only goes and moves the shoe category down to Level Two. However I'm not one to be easily defeated and as my suggestions have now been accepted I'm still going to share my ever growing shoe collection with you. I've got a lot of shoes in my collection but probably one of my most popular pairs of shoes for work are my River Island black embellished ballerina flat shoes.
These shoes are black in colour, with a fabric upper and a patent leather square toe covering. Over the toe is a dark grey buckle as can be seen in the picture above which adds some extra detail. The soles of these shoes are plastic and quite a thick plastic at that suggesting they will last for quite a while. The sole is quite thick although not thick enough to add much height; they're very much a flat pump. Overall I'd say they look really modern and quite smart too.
The main difference with these shoes and hundreds of other black pumps out there is the fact that they have elasticated sides. These are meant to add a smarter look to your style and to ensure that the shoes fit comfortably around your feet. This also means that when the shoes aren't on my feet they sort of curl up, now I have found that when wearing these shoes for a prolonged time period they can create a little discomfort around my feet due to this effect.
The ballerina flat shoes are currently available in River Island stores for £26.99 which is a little more expensive than what I'd normally pay for a pair of black pumps. However I think the extra details and the perfect fit of these shoes warranted splashing out a little bit more money. They're currently only available in black and are available in sizes three to nine. I'm giving these shoes three out of five stars, they're very smart but not overly comfortable sadly!
Thanks for reading.
