Walt Disney and Christian Louboutin Unveils Cinderella-Inspired Slippers
If you’ve ever wondered what Cinderella’s slippers would look like in modern times, then Walt Disney and world-renowned shoe designer Christian Louboutin’s recent project may give you an idea on what to expect, as they unveil the ultimate, modern-day Cinderella-inspired slipper in Paris, during Haute Couture week on July 2-5.
“Cinderella is not only an iconic character when it comes to beauty, grace and fairytale love, but also shoes,” explains designer Christian Louboutin. For Louboutin, the worlds of fantasy and shoe-making collided in perfect harmony when he was invited by Disney to re-imagine Cinderella’s famous slipper in honor of Disney’s global release of the classic masterpiece “Cinderella” Diamond Edition on Blu-ray™ this Fall.
A word of note, though: the slippers are only Cinderella-inspired, so don’t expect them to be made of glass. It’s simply not practical in this day and age. Especially since the slippers are not simple display pieces, with a few lucky modern day cinderellas getting the chance to win one of the twenty original slippers in an upcoming Walt Disney Contest.
