Christian Louboutin Teams Up With Disney For Star Wars Inspired Shoe

When major luxury shoe brand Christian Louboutin partners with iconic household brand Disney you should already know it’ll be amazing!


That’s right, red bottom retailer Christian Louboutin is teaming up with Disney to create a shoe that reflects one of the most popular movies this year.

Back in 2012, the two created a reinterpretation of the “Cinderella” slipper, while in 2014 they recreated a “Maleficent” shoe.

This collection, however, is inspired by the release of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”

Being that this film has four leading ladies, what better way to celebrate than by honoring them each.

Rey (Daisy Ridley), Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo (Laura Dern), Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) and Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran).

“[Disney and ‘Star Wars’] are very, very strong at developing characters,” says a Louboutin spokesperson. “I have the same thing when I’m designing shoes. I often think of a character, so in a way for me, it totally makes sense to work around the character because that’s basically what I do.” He adds that his “Star Wars” designs are “a take on the characters from the movie, but also made for the actress.”

Each shoe not only reflects the luxury look the brand is known for but takes the characteristics of each character.

“Christian Louboutin’s shoes are truly functional works of art and it was such a pleasure to collaborate with him on the Nomad Shoemaker,”

Said Doug Chiang, vice president and executive creative director for the “Star Wars” franchise.

“The designs I create for films are meant to be experienced cinematically, while Christian’s have an intimate tangible relationship with their wearers. With this collaboration he has masterfully infused ‘Star Wars’ into his magnificent, one-of-a-kind creations.”

According to WDD, following the film’s premiere, each design, signed by both Louboutin and the actress whose character inspired it.

The shoes will then be auctioned on charitybuzz.com/StarWars from Dec. 7 to Dec. 20, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the Starlight Children’s Foundation on behalf of Star Wars: Force for Change.
