Disney collaborates with luxury shoe designers


In celebration of its live action film inspired by the classic fairy tale, “Cinderella”, Disney has collaborated with nine luxury designer shoe brands across the globe to assemble an enchanting collection of shoes that re-imagine Cinderella‘s iconic glass slipper.

The distinguished designers are: Paul Andrew, Alexandre Birman, Rene Caovilla, Jimmy Choo, Salvatore Ferragamo, Nicholas Kirkwood, Charlotte Olympia, Jerome Rousseau, and Stuart Weitzman. Each brand has created its own interpretation of the famed glass slipper Cinderella accidentally leaves behind when the clock strikes midnight.

“Cinderella‘s glass slipper has become a magical symbol of transformation,” said David Lee, Footwear Director, Disney EMEA. “Each pair of shoes in this exciting global collection captures Cinderella‘s elegance and grace through the lens of celebrated designers, making this shoe collection truly fit for a princess.”

Swarovski, which produced the iconic glass slipper under the direction of Academy-Award winning costume designer Sandy Powell, provided the crystals featured in the designer‘s shoes.

The shoes will be available for order in the high end retail stores around the world, as well as in some of the designer brand‘s own stores. These are:
