winter-boots.jpg I had the opportunity to see these River Island boots in person last weekend, and although they may not look like much in the picture, the fact that everyone who passed their stand had to pick them up and stroke them should be a good clue that they're rather more special in real life! These are also available in black, and are a perfect, simple winter style. The flat heel means you'll be able to walk in them comfortably, and the high leg will look great either over jeans or under a dress or skirt. The gold stud detail is a nice finishing touch, and the lovely soft leather justifies the £79.99 price tag.
