River Island Black Flower Strappy Stiletto Heel Sandals

Well hello there! Now this little pair I gotta say I fell in love with as soon as I saw them! I thought they were such a gorgeous pair of heels that I needed to have in my life. I can’t say I have ever owned a pair of sandals with a massive statement floral piece on the back!

Now this review will lead onto the outfit tomorrow, so you get to see what I paired it up with. I wanted this blog to be more focused on the heels in case you’re wondering 🙂

The Packaging: so as I took quite a few images of when they first arrived, I won’t need to say much about them to be honest.

They came in a sturdy box, with plenty of padding in the sandals to not only keep their shape, but also keep them in place within the box so they don’t get bashed around too much.


Getting Them On: is super easy, considering you have to get your feet through a fair few straps. If you have hosiery on, it makes it easier to slip your foot right in compared to doing it bare foot where the straps can get stuck in-between your toes.

If you wiggle your foot enough when getting them on, they go in quite quickly so you’re not having to faff around too much.

These are a normal buckle fastening on the side, which is also adjustable so you don’t have to have slim feet to wear these!


On The Feet: I gotta say they look so cute and really sassy! I love that huge flower design on the back, which slightly wraps around the heel of the foot. And looking face on, those straps look stunning; simple, clean criss crosses.

They were easy to walk in, and they don’t start to hurt after being in them for an hour. With glossy hosiery, you may want to add some grips under the balls of your feet to stop your feet from sliding down – otherwise I can’t see no issues.

Before I forget to mention, the straps going across the feet aren’t adjustable; it’s only the final strap with buckles in that can be slightly adjusted to make it loose or tighter. At first I thought they would be slightly stretchy, but they’re not at all.



My Thoughts?

All I can say is I am so glad they are part of my collection! I loved reviewing these and I will certainly be wearing these out and about for sure now that summer is here!

They are such a lovely pair, which can be work with simple outfits to let the shoes do the talking or bolder to be creating statements all over. Either way – I will be having some serious fun pairing these up with future outfits!
