A traditional circus performance is normally held in a ring 13 m (42 ft) in diameter. This dimension was adopted to enable a horse rider to stand upright on a cantering horse, to perform a series of acrobatic manoeuvres, whilst easily retaining their balance. This simple yet narrative circle is the basis of our latest women's footwear collection. Taking inspiration from the entertaining and ever timeless circus; our shoes for AW13 are fun, graphic and make great style look so easy. Our ring leader is a sleek new rubber sole unit which breaks the bounds of age. So versatile, it's a perfect combination of casual and elegant. Sculptural as you would imagine, this season's shapes, flowing curves and simple lines allow for complimentary textures like snapping crocodiles
, magic tents
and acrobats' stripes.
We invite you to sit ring side and enjoy the show!
