Christian Louboutin Designs Princess Shoes Inspired By Cinderella’s Glass Slippers
Your feet may have just found their happy ending.
Back in April 2012, famed shoe designer Christian Louboutin announced that he would be giving modern-day Prince Charmings an easy way to step their game up with the creation of a limited-edition heel created in honor of Disney’s Cinderella Diamond Edition being released on Blu-ray and DVD this fall.
“I have been so lucky to have crossed paths with Cinderella, an icon who is so emblematic to the shoe world as well as the dream world,” said the designer.
Anna Hill, Chief Marketing Officer of The Walt Disney Company in the United Kingdom & Ireland, echoed Louboutin’s sentiments stating, “The enchanting stories of our Disney Princesses are timeless and continue to inspire girls and women across generations.”
To mimic the glass heels from the classic 1950s fairytale, Louboutin unveiled a pair of red-soled five-inch heels covered in lace, Swarovski crystals, and glittering butterflies. “Cinderella is not only an iconic character when it comes to beauty, grace and fairytale love, but also shoes,” the designer said in an official statement. “Her character and her story dictated the design to me, it was all there in the pages and the words of this tale.”
Just 20 pairs of the shoes will be manufactured and distributed through a worldwide giveaway this fall. What do you think of the fantastical footwear?
