Daniel Rubin, owner and chairman of the British shoe retail chain Dune, is reviewing the operations of Shoe Studio Group, which he bought in March as it was about to go into administration. He is said to be assessing the strength of Shoe Studio Group’s brands, which include Bertie, Pied à Terre and Roberto Vianni, as well as the range of the suppliers for the brands its stores carry, such as Diesel, Firetrap, Fly London and Ugg. Rubin will run Shoe Studio with its chief executive, John Egan, who worked for the company until the beginning of 2008. The purchase added 300 Shoe Studio concessions to Dune’s 45 stores. Combined, the chains have sales of about £150 million (€168.2m-$223.2m).
