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 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 the ‘Big Top‘. Flowing curves and simple lines make this shoe is a real collector’s item that bridges the gap between art and design.
