In celebration of the release of Disney’s live action film inspired by the classic fairy tale Cinderella, Disney Consumer Products has collaborated with nine luxury designer shoe brands across the globe to assemble an enchanting collection of shoes that reimagine Cinderella’s iconic glass slipper. The distinguished designers, in alphabetical order, are: Paul Andrew, Alexandre Birman, René Caovilla, Jimmy Choo, Salvatore Ferragamo, Nicholas Kirkwood, Charlotte Olympia, Jerome C. 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.
Both styles feature a permanent Jibbitz, a glow-in-the-dark sole band and the Star Wars logo featured prominently on the back strap.
They may not actually be glass, but an exciting new line of evening and wedding fashion footwear — inspired by the 1950 Disney animated classic film, Cinderella — will soon be available from leading branded footwear and accessories retailer DSW. ‘The Glass Slipper Collection’ hits DSW stores and dsw.com on October 1, 2012 in celebration of the release of Cinderella Diamond Edition, available on Blu-ray™ for the first time at the stroke of midnight on October 2.

Via its official Facebook page, Disney France has shared several photos of the new Cinderella-inspired shoes which resulted as a collaboration between designer Christian Louboutin and Disney.
According to Louboutin, he was inspired by the written version of the story by Charles Perrault as well as the images from Walt Disney’s film. ‘Cinderella is an icon of beauty, grace and magical love, but it also embodies the universe of the shoe,’ according to Louboutin (via Bing translate).
The shoes feature a delicate lace, embroidered with crystals and a pair of butterflies that are said to be the ‘parents’ of the shoes that were born from their sparkling wings.
The ultimate fairytale that has represented, for centuries, the definitive expression of timeless love, transformation, the fulfillment of a dream come true and, above all, the happily ever after, comes alive in 2012 as The Walt Disney Studios and famed red-sole designer Christian Louboutin, come together to celebrate the magic and inspiration behind of one of the greatest fairytales of all time, Disney’s Cinderella.
