River Island, Concorde Street, Cabot Circus

Great product and great value. Design details really make this footwear offer stand out

Product 8½

The first shoe Drapers picks up sums up the River Island product experience. A perfectly formed, pale pink strappy-heeled sandal with a stuck-on platform and cut-out panels is spot on. Gladiator sandals are best in class with plenty of embellishment. Tribal gladiators feature a diamanté-encrusted peacock feather on the vamp and snakeskin strapping, elements that give new life to this perennial style.

Experience 8
It’s a shame this department is not bigger given the calibre of the offer. Service is a touch confused as Drapers was assisted by one person who then handed over to another, but this is a minor detail in what was a great shopping experience. The second sales assistant had a great upselling approach without being pushy.

Value 8

The standout strappy heel in pale pink and embellished gladiator sandal are just £64.99 and £36.99 respectively and the level of design detail justifies that with ease. Leopard-print pony skin gladiator sandals are fairly priced at £45, while hanging espadrilles at £10 are a steal. Cork-soled platforms with peep toes and scalloped cut-out detail are a touch too pricey at £69.99.
