Louboutin Reinvents the Classic Cinderella Slipper
What an honor it would be to be asked by Disney to recreate the Cinderella slipper, albeit an updated version of the glass heel, but never-the-less it is fit for a princess. The shoe designed by Christian Louboutin was released for viewing June 4th 2012 in Paris and was made up of transparent mesh as the structure of the glamorous footwear, and then it incorporated hundreds of tiny Swarovski Crystals which make up the mass amount of sparkle that shoe gives off. The glittering stones form tiny butterflies throughout the mesh that flutter toward a large butterfly that comprises the toe box of the peep toe platform.
Louboutin is known for his wild shoes and it is no surprise that he was asked to partake in the Diamond Edition release of the Disney Cinderella classic on Blu-Ray and DVD. It is only a matter of time until these hit stores and regardless of the price-tag (which won’t be cheap) these pumps will sell out in moments. The firestorm of bidding on sites like ebay will make the news for sure as these are limited edition and both fans of Cinderella and Louboutin will be waiting in line to get their size.
“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. Lets hope when wearing these out to a party and when you’re rushing home that you don’t drop one. Well… we all know how that ends up.
