Rocking Horse Shoes

Vivienne-Westwood-ShoesThe Rocking Horse Shoe was designed along with the collection “Mini Crini” in 1986.
This collection was inspired by the “Petrushka Ballet”, the clothes were supposed to create a childish and doll-like look. Vivienne wanted to design an elevated shoe, which at the same time is comfortable and easy to wear. That’s why it has the rounded front. “You rock along when you walk in them” (Vivienne).
For sure the form is connected to the “Rope Thong Sandal” which was designed 2 years earlier and was inspired by the traditional Japanese geisha shoe. Today we sell 6 versions of Rocking Horses:

Rocking Horse Ballerina – £375.00
Rocking Horse Golf – £470.00
Rocking Horse Boot – £420.00 (£425 for relaxed leather).
Rocking Horse Baby – £340.00 (£360 for relaxed leather).
Rocking Horse Slave – £320.00
Rocking Horse Crossover – £310.00                                                                                   All handmade in England

Tracey Trainer

Tracey-trainer-Vivienne-Westwood-Worlds-EndNamed after Tracey Emin this shoe is a variation of an elevated “Hammer Head Sneaker” from 1982 – Savage collection.
The original used to have 3 coloured stripes on the side. When we developed the current version in 2003, Adidas stopped us using the 3 stripe design. That’s why it has 4 stripes today. They are available in skin colour as shown, also in khaki canvas/coloured stripes, and black leather/black stripes.

Tracey Trainer, made in England – £365.00
