river-island-spike.jpgI think these could be River Island's take on the amazing gold spiked shoes Christian Louboutin produced for Rodarte earlier this year. The colour may be different and the huge spikes are missing, but the general feel and shape is the same.

Are they a good take on the designer originals? Hmmm. I'm going to be diplomatic and let you be the judge of that one, but they're certainly cheaper, that's for sure: Louboutin's shoes were "price on request" but these ones are £59.99 and available t0 buy right now from the River Island website.
