Just A Step Away was a huge success, we had a great reaction from the Leicester public. A real range of people stopped in their tracks to look at the stunning projections above Tin Fish from ex shoe makers to DMU design students. It certainly proved that the boot and shoe industry has left its mark on Leicester!
