Today I Love… River Island Buckle Wedge Boots

River Island Black Double Buckle Wedge Boots

This month’s Elle magazine has an amazing 25% OFF discount card for River Island so I decided to go on a bit of a shopping spree and take advantage.

When it comes to boots I usually swear by Topshop but I haven’t seen any in months that take my fancy.

I was surprised by how many shoe styles River Island has – and I’m pleased to say there are modest heel heights for those of us that squirm at the sight of skyscraping platforms!

These black and gold wedges were my favourites though and now that I’ve worn them a few times I can safely say that they are one of the comfiest pair of boots I’ve owned. Hopefully they’ll last the season as any pair of wedge boots I’ve had have a tendency to shed the platform sole faster than I’d like.

The gold trim toe cap and ankle buckle detail latches on to this season’s punk trend so I’ll be wearing them all winter long, most likely with my leather biker jacket and a flash of leopard or tartan.
