Founded in the East End of London in 1948, River Island began as a small store selling fruit, vegetables and knitting wool. The founding Lewis family then expanded to become a chain of boutiques, and for over 60 years have been one of the most successful fashion retailers in the UK, with nearly 300 stores across the world. The brand is known for their stylish and affordable clothing, shoes and accessories for everyday wear. From graphic, sporty high-tops to relaxed slip-on pumps, this collection of River Island sneakers are an affordable and stylish celebration of youth. Adventurous animal prints contrast with fashion-forward platforms for a collection which radiates personality and energy.
