Despite recently going for flats, Barbie hasn’t lost her love for high heels. In fact top designer Sophia Webster is launching a shoe collection with Barbie.
Naturally the main color of the new shoe collection is pink. The shoes are the definition of being girly and, well, they are the definition of Barbie. Just one look at them is enough for you to know who is the inspiration.
“Creating a shoe collection for Barbie has always been my dream project, but getting to be a part of her embracing flats for the first time made it extra exciting, and deeply personal. I love that this concept strikes a balance between dreams and reality – the idea of getting Barbie in some hi-tops and setting her loose in East London instantly appealed”, Webster told Vogue.
The shoe collection features a total of nine styles. Six of them are for adults and three of them are high heels. And what high heels! They are in typical Barbie slingback style with very high, thin heels. The third pair features ankle straps and butterfly wings. The collection will be out on August 27th.
Next month Webster will be launching a limited edition doll, too. It will feature a specially designed box and will be wearing a miniature version of Webster’s Riko hi-top glitter trainers.
