Shoe News: Barbie's Louboutins

Red Bottoms for Barbie!

When you think of Barbie shoes, which designer comes to mind? The S&B team automatically thought of Giuseppe Zanotti because of his fun and imaginative style, but it seems Mattel, Inc had a different opinion. It will actually be Christian Louboutin who designs the Barbie Pantone 219 Pink shoes worn in the special runway show Mattel is staging during NY Fashion Week next February. In celebration of Barbie turning 50, they've commissioned fifty undisclosed designers to create Barbie-inspired looks, and each will be worn with Louboutin's specially designed pink shoes. We can't wait to see those shoes (or the outfits they accompany)! We also hope Betsey Johnson is one of the designers in the show.

  1. Oh Betsey Johnson would be perfect! I'm also looking forward to the big reveal. I always admired Barbie's fashion as a kid. ;)
