Priced at £65, the only difference in the shape of these shoes from the style launched earlier in the year is the slingback, as well as the colours available (currently black, white or mint green). As before, the designers of this high street 'homage' have respected Monsieur Louboutin's wishes (and those of his lawyers) and stopped short of painting the sole red - but there's nothing to stop creative fans from doing so as a DIY job of course!

Get in early to avoid disappointment on this one - the last Pigalle-style shoe that River Island made sold out within a couple of weeks. I'm anticipating the black version going first, since it has the most universal appeal, but the summer-friendly mint is also very pretty and will make a stylish and unusual statement worn with many of the seasons botanical inspired skirts and blouses:
