Ladies heading to the races, or another stylish summer event,  can avoid the hurdles usually associated with a long day on the feet, by turning to the flats.

Style-conscious shoe brand, Cocorose London, has plenty of choices for those who wish to jockey for attention with their footwear, making heads turn on the course and in the hospitality suite.  Cocorose London has helpfully put some runner and rider suggestions together, for your race card …

Odds-on favourites for those who love life around the paddock are the flats in the Clapham range – loafers that are supportive of the feet from every angle.  With many hues to choose, these premium leather loafers, with double-cushioned leather insoles, pillowed Achilles heels and attractive basket-weave upper, will get you to the day’s finishing line free from blisters, aches and foot pain.  Priced between £80 and £105, these hybrid shoes can also be folded into a little black travel purse, to keep at hand should you wish to swap shoes a few times during the event.

If it’s racing silks that you wish to reflect, you can go for the gorgeous Cocorose London Navy Satin Bow sandals (£68), dark navy satin sandals bearing a sophisticated over-sized satin navy bow and again complete with cushioning.  In a popular race-day colour, this is certain to wow all the other ladies.

Other safe bets to catch the eye of the ‘Best Dressed’ judges are Pimlico ballerinas in the colour of the season – coral – and priced at £75, or attention-grabbing Buckingham ballerinas (£70) in versatile white luxurious leather, with an adorable grosgrain black bow detail. 

True stars of the race card, however, especially if you are flaunting the fuchsia, or bedazzling in blush, are two of the Royal Ballet Collection at Cocorose London – the quirky Alice and the ultra-feminine Aurora.  The first of these, priced at £95, references the ballet’s production of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, with monochrome detail on premium leather featuring iconic white rabbits, with this eye-catching print contrasting beautifully with a fuchsia toe-cap, sporting bow and CR detail. 

Aurora, on the other hand, inspired by Sleeping Beauty, is a blush, premium textile ballerina with black mesh bow and sparkling diamanté gemstone – simply divine and priced £55.
