In honor of Disney’s upcoming fall release of Cinderella on Blu-Ray, they have decided to team up with world renown French designer Christian Louboutin to make a unique fairy tale creation; Cinderella’s glass slipper.
In probably one of the most similar to real life scenes in the animated classic, the Grand Duke has both stepsisters try on the glass slipper. However, as hard as they try to stuff their over-sized feet into the shoe, it just doesn’t fit. Then as he is about to go, Cinderella appears and he has her try on the same shoe for a perfect fit.
Anyone who has ever spent an afternoon shoe shopping for the perfect pair of comfortable fitting heels can sympathize while watching that scene. Looking for a pair of heels that are beautiful, match your wardrobe, and will fit without pinching your toes or chafing you heel is no small task.
What’s more, Christian Louboutin has come to symbolize that level of excellence, and elusive rarity of finding the most desirable pair of heels out there. His stunning shoe designs have always exuded a sense of luxury that could easily be compared with the pinnacle of ultimate fantasy shoes, which for most of us girls growing up was a glass slipper.
“I think we have made the fairy tale fashionable again. We can translate the ancient fairy tale into its modern equivalent without losing the lovely patina and the savor of its once-upon-a-time quality” – The Walt Disney Company
“Isn’t it everyone’s dream, to once in your life part of a fairy tale? Walt Disney Studios gave me a wonderful opportunity to live this magical moment. 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.” -Christian Louboutin
More details will be coming when Disney makes a formal announcement in early July. Christian Louboutin is also celebrating his 20th Anniversary with a retrospective exhibition at the London Museum of Design.
