Style on Trial: River Island leopard print platform heel sandals

River Island leopard print platform heel sandalsWhen reader Emma alerted us to these sandals in the River Island newsletter, it was as if we’d fallen asleep and woken up in 1994.  We can see that a 90s revival is imminent, with velvet dresses adorning the rails on the high street, and heels becoming increasingly more chunky.  But have River Island taken it a step (no pun intended!) too far with these shoes?  It’s a style we’re seeing more and more of at the moment, so let’s put it to the vote:  yay or nay?

(If you’re voting “yay”, they are available for £59.99 from River Island.)

    For some reason, I now have the Spice Girls’ ‘Wannabe’ on the brain. Can’t imagine why.

    Oh yes, “Wannabe”! I almost hurt my brain trying to find what they reminded me of.. I don’t particulary remember the 90-ies fashion for some reason..

    I know that chunky shoes and platforms are trying to come back, but I think they should stay in the 90’s where they belong!

    And yes, very Spice Girls-esque.
