Just ahead of the March 13 release of Disney’s live action film “Cinderella,” Disney Consumer Products (DCP) and Saks Fifth Avenue launched a fairy tale collection of luxury designer shoes that reimagine Cinderella’s iconic glass slipper for grown up fans of the classic story.
Nine designer shoe brands – including Paul Andrew, Alexandre Birman, René Caovilla, Jimmy Choo, Salvatore Ferragamo, Nicholas Kirkwood, Charlotte Olympia, Jerome C. Rousseau, and Stuart Weitzman – have created their own interpretation of the famed glass slipper Cinderella accidentally leaves behind when the clock strikes midnight.
Unveiled with the stars of the film – Lily James and Richard Madden – are six, beautiful, center store windows at the Saks flagship store in Manhattan that bring this enchanting fairytale to life, featuring costumes and props from the film as well as the collections of nine luxury designer shoes. Additionally, the shoes are featured on display and for sale on 10022-SHOE, Saks’ dedicated shoe floor Zip Code.

“‘Works of arts called shoes’ to grant wishes and raise emotions. Passion and never ending research don’t draw the line at fantasy and creativity. This is how dreams come true in our fairy tale.” -René Caovilla
“I think every girl desires a Cinderella moment in their lives. This story ignites a love affair and fascination with shoes that never dies. The power they have to transform is instilled from a young age and the fantasy remains alive forever. I wanted to create a shoe that felt magical, with alluring sparkle and a feminine, timeless silhouette evoking those childhood emotions.” -Sandra Choi, Creative Director Jimmy Choo
“The magic of a shoe that turns a woman into a princess and gives her the feeling of walking on clouds is a universal dream. A modern Cinderella fairy tale of rediscovering a soft sensuality and a powerful femininity. A shoe made of transparency and light: the cage heel, an iconic symbol of Salvatore Ferragamo, is covered with Swarovski crystals and is transformed by sparkling impalpability.” -Massimiliano Giornetti, creative director at Salvatore Ferragamo
“I am delighted and honoured to be invited by Disney to design one of the most iconic shoes in history. It was such a pleasure to create my version of Cinderella’s glass slipper which I have aptly named If the Shoe Fits. This transparent platform shoe made with my signature PVC & perspex materials is adorned with star and crystal detailing as befits any princess.” -Charlotte Olympia
