Christmas was only a month ago, but as January begins to draw to a close, we start to look forward, towards the forthcoming spring and summer time.
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and Easter will follow shortly after that.
Once the clocks go forward on March 29th, the nights will start pulling out and the days will be longer.
Evenings will be spent in beer gardens, down by the river and in the parks, watching the sun slowly go down, and the air will get slightly cooler meaning it is most definitely cardigan weather.
Boots, earmuffs, scarves and gloves will be packed away for the winter season far, far ahead, and out will come the hats, sunglasses and flats. And we think it’s fair to say we know a thing or two about flats.
Flats are another term for the Ballet shoe, and also can be referred to as ballet pumps, ballet flats or dolly shoes. The original ballet shoe designed for ballet dancing come about in the 16th century and was made from soft leather, canvas or satin. The soles were thin and flexible which made it ideal for both women and men to dance in them.
Ballet pumps as they are more commonly known as today are derived from the original ballet shoe and grew rapidly in the 20th century thanks to their appeal of day and evening wear, along with the vast range of prints, textures and trends.
In association with The Royal Ballet, we have an exclusive capsule collection of our signature, foldable ballet pumps and travel purse in a unique presentation box.

The Royal Ballet Aurora
The Royal Ballet Alice
So, we think flats or ballet pumps are pretty special. Not only are they approved by The Royal Ballet, but they are also approved by you.
Foldable fold up ballet shoes have come a long way since we launched in 2007 and our collections just keep growing. As mentioned in the previous blog we have a new SS15 collection on its way very soon and we are very excited for you to see for yourselves what we have in store.
We hope you like it as much as we do, and we personally can’t wait for Spring to arrive.
