“ Brand: River Island / Type: Ankle Boots „
* Prices may differ from that shown
This is the second pair of boots that I bought from RiverIsland.co.uk about three weeks ago. These ones cost me £29.99.
I have worn these boots a lot less than the other pair I bought. They are comfortable and I do like them, but they look a lot different in real life than they do in the picture shown at the top of the page (which is the picture I judged them by on the website when I ordered them).
I have to say they are really comfy to wear.
I was expecting them to look more like boots than they do; in my opinion they look more like shoes. They don't really go with many of the clothes that I wear which is why I hardly ever wear them.
The toes are also a bit pointier than I expected them to be. As the name 'round toe ankle boots' suggests, I thought they would have rounded toes. Instead the toes are a bit pointier. I like them but like I say they just aren't how I expected them to be like.
The boots are made from real leather which means they are hard wearing, and they are also waterproof. They will last a lot longer than most boots because they are made from this material. The soles are made out of plastic.
The sides have elasticated panels on them which is one of the things that first attracted me to the ankle boots. They also have like a small handle type thing at the back, which you can put your finger in to help pull them on. It is practical, but what I mainly like about it is that it looks quite cool. Overall I really like the design of the boots. It is a shame they just don't go with many of my clothes though!
Overall I have learnt a lesson out of buying these boots; it is better to go into a shop and try a pair of shoes/boots on first before you buy them, as you may find that they look different in real life.
