Every Christmas season there's a key festive fashion stable that seems to take over. 

And this year – we're particularly taken with the red fringe shoes that are on a whole load of seriously stylish feet right now.

Better still: two killer versions are available in two of our favourite stores – River Island AND Penneys.

This version from River Island is now reduced to €45


Previously, the former pair were priced at a cool €75, but it's now come to our attention that riversland.com (as well as stores nationwide) has marked them down to just €45.

Thank you, wardrobe gods!

But here's the spanner in the works: Penneys is selling its red fringe shoes for just €19. And other than a little tassel detail on the ankle, they are remarkable similar. 

The offering from Penneys is priced at just €19


So what's a gal to do?!

Well, we'd only be delira with either offering: indeed, a quick reconnaissance mission to Penneys and River Island – along with a bank balance evaluation – should help us along our way. 

Furthermore, we've been reminded that there plenty more footwear gems lurking about in both stores.

Here's what caught our eye in particular (and can you guess which is which?):
