river-isalnd-toe-pots.jpgRiver Island's design forum initiative has given several young fashion students a bit of a leg-up into the industry, while providing the rest of us with some seriously cool footwear. Some of the shoes are a little OTT for most tastes - the heels look amazing but would be hard to pull off - but I'm quite fond of the flatties, which include these neon-edged toe-posts.

With delicate studs, animal-print detailing and a scalloped edge, the design takes in several of the season's key trends and somehow manages to put them together in a way that works. This is a tricky and risky feat - all suggesting that designer Sophia Grace is a name to watch!
