Nike’s New Glass Sneakers Are Perfect for the Fairy-Tale Princess on the Go
Of all the details surrounding Cinderella’s transcendent fairy-tale romance, none is more notable than the perfectly fitting pair of glass slippers she donned to the ball. We’ve seen designers bring the iconic shoe to life before, but the idea of running errands (or doing much of anything else, really) in such delicate footwear is downright humorous — can you say toe pain? Sure, a pump designed by a fairy godmother might seem romantic and all, but that thing is breakable: not exactly the best proverbial fit for the gal on the go.
Say hello to the limited edition “Glass Slipper” Nike Air Force 1 Upstep Hi LX ($200): the ideal shoe for an edgy princess of the 21st century. It’s got the bones of the classic Air Force 1 high tops, but boasts a glass slipper sheen thanks to a layer of rose and turquoise-colored sequins that coat its body. Just imagine that shimmer as you walk!
You’ll want to act fast to get them before they magically disappear, however: Sneakerheads will be digitally lining up to get their hands (and feet) on a pair of the whimsical kicks, which will go on sale at 10am on Saturday, July 1. They’ll also be available in select stores where Nike sportswear is available.
