The world is blessed with extraordinary shoe designers who have gifted women with creations that ranged from the exquisitely beautiful to the startlingly mundane. There is no style, no silhouette and no color left untouched as innovations in the footwear industry cease to stop and delight women with amazing shoes.
Amid the already-rich collections we have now, one of the world’s most distinguished shoe designers is embarking on a journey to fulfill the fantasies of little girls in the world. Christian Louboutin, the man with the red sole, is taking on the challenge of creating his own interpretation of Cinderella’s legendary glass slipper. A celebration of Walt Disney’s re-release of the movie on Blu-ray and DVD this Fall, the glass slippers will reportedly be revealed in the summer. “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 Louboutin to WWD.
There is perhaps no other shoe that is as globally and culturally recognized as Cinderella’s glass slippers, which only makes us think of the immense pressure resting on the designer’s shoulders. Then again, we could also just bask in dream-like anticipation for these shoes’ arrival.
