Thanks to shoe guru Stuart Weitzman, there really is a glass slipper. Well, a glass slipper look alike. He designed the slipper that will be worn in the first-ever Broadway production of Rogers + Hammerstein’s “Cinderella.”
His one-of-a-kind creation, a transparent vinyl silhouette encrusted with more than 5,000 iridescent Swarovski crystals, will make its debut March 3 at the Broadway Theatre in New York City.
And for women who want to be their own fairytale shoes, Weitzman will launch a Clearly Timless capsule inspired by the musical.
Weitzman has been creating fantasy-worthy footwear for real life royalty — and women with real lives — for more than 26 years.
“What is every girl’s first memory of shoes? Cinderella’s glass slipper. Something as simple and accessible as a beautiful shoe can make a woman feel like a princess,” says Weitzman. “Who wouldn’t want to be Cinderella for a night? When asked to re-create the iconic slipper for the new Broadway production, I jumped at the chance.”
