Cinderella glass slippers get real in high-fashion
Surely, if you’re the high-heel and high-fashion wearing kind of person, you’ve imagined putting on those pretty glass slippers that finally brought the Prince back to Cinderella. But maybe you also thought, “Wow, those shoes must not be very comfortable!”
But still, they’re just so pretty, right?
So, several high-fashion shoe designers got their imagination working and designed a shoe inspired by the glass slipper in the upcoming live-action movie, Cinderella. You can scroll down the images of very pretty, yet easier-to-wear-than-glass heels.
Made with Swarovski crystals, the shoes are being made and actually going on sale. “I think every girl desires a Cinderella moment in their lives,” says Sandra Choi, Jimmy Choo creative director.
“Passion and never ending research don’t draw the line at fantasy and creativity. This is how dreams come true in our fairy tale.” — René Caovilla
“The stroke of midnight is a wonderful element of the Cinderella fairy tale, it adds tension and intensity to the story. I was inspired by that when I designed this style for Cinderella and the result is a dramatic midnight-blue glitter sandal on a sky-high heel.” — Jerome C. Rousseau
“It’s a shoe I imagine a modern princess would wear.” — Alexandre Birman
“The magic of a shoe that turns a woman into a princess and gives her the feeling of walking on clouds is a universal dream.” — Massimiliano Giornetti, creative director at Salvatore Ferragamo
“Cinderella has both delicate and strong qualities as a character. The moment of transformation emphasizes both and gave me the design inspiration to create a piece that spoke to the film’s magic.” — Nicholas Kirkwood
“Cinderella in 2015 has a timeless appeal. The diamond and translucent bootie enhance the vision I have of her.” — Stuart Weitzman
The shoes will be available in these stores: Saks Fifth Avenue, New York and Beverly Hills; Harrods, London; Galeries Lafayette, Paris; Excelsior Milano, Milan; Tsum, Moscow; Isetan Shinjuku, Tokyo; and Level Shoe District, The Dubai Mall, Dubai
