What Shoes To Wear With Your Jeans

If you’re anything like us, there’s a strong chance that you live in jeans around the clock. Denim after all is made to be versatile, durable, and effortless for near enough every occasion. 

And every denim occasion has a perfect sole mate. We’re not saying there’s only one shoe for each denim fit, the joy of denim is that it goes with everything. If you’re looking to maximise some style USPs – from elongating legs to balancing body shape – there are a few specific pairings worth knowing about. 

Here we break down our favourite shoes to wear with every fit of River Island jeans, from a classic skinny to a retro flare or 1990s mom cut.

Skinny + Strappy Heel

Legs for days? We’re just getting started. Our classic skinnies sculpt the leg and finish above the ankle for the ultimate elongating fit. Add a pair of stilettos and you’ll be ready for the runway

Sculpt + Mule

When you’re putting all that effort into sculpting your behind, there’s no harm in lifting yourself in other areas too. Enter, the mule - a low heel to give your legs an extra elongating boost, to support all the good work your jeans are already doing around your derriere.

Mom + Western

Not all cropped jeans can carry it off, but there’s something so undeniably chic about a wide retro fit with an unexpected boot choice. We love a pointed western with an acid wash Mom jean for the ultimate rock’n’roll feel.

Slim + Pointed Heels Boot

Ultra laidback Slims and heels are a dream duo. A solid block heel can also provide that little extra bit of extra height - just make it patent to up that 70s vibe.

Flares + Colour Block Trainers

It’s a flared affair and only colour block trainers will do. Frame your fresh kicks in wide seventies style and a simple racer crop to finish the look off.

Molly + Loafers

We’re all about the contrast, and in our opinion there’s nothing that showcases a pair of box-fresh new kicks like an ultra-skinny jegging. Add yourself a slouchy oversized sweater while you’re at it.
