From Jimmy Choo to Salvatore Ferragamo.

Disney’s live action version of Cinderella is set to hit our screens next month and to mark the occasion, a number of shoe designers have designed their version of the classic slipper.

Charlotte Olympia, Salvatore Ferragamo, Stuart Weitzman, Paul Andre, Alexandre Birman, Nicolas Kirkwood, Rene Caovilla, Jerome Rousseau and Jimmy Choo have created some stunning designs, all of which can be viewed in the above gallery of images.

“Cinderella has both delicate and strong qualities as a character,” said Nicolas Kirkwood. “The moment of transformation emphasises both and gave me the design inspiration to create a piece that spoke to the film’s magic.

The collection of shoes will be unveiled at the Berlin Film Festival on Friday and will also be available to order from select stores including Harrods.

The slipper Lily James wears in the upcoming film was created by Swarovski and this is only one of the reasons we’re excited about the film’s release.
