And now it appears they have fallen out of favour even more in recent years, with the share price halving between 2014 and 2017.

The launch of a high-heeled version of its signature shoe in July this year looked to have been a contributing factor in turning the business' fortunes around, with share prices more than tripling between May and June.

The company has not said how it will continue to produce its products.

'We expect double digit e-commerce growth and moderate wholesale growth to more than offset lower retail revenues due to operating fewer stores and business model changes'.

The company announced that it is expecting a 2018 revenue of around $1.02 billion, slightly below analysts' previous expectations of $1.05 billion.
