Everyone on the Web is Wild for Louboutin’s Cinderella Shoes

Social Media Week

Social Media Week is a leading news platform and worldwide conference that curates and shares the best ideas and insights into social media and technology's impact on business, society, and culture.

Playing princess is a popular past time, so it’s no wonder an article of clothing from one of the most iconic princesses of all time can cause quite the stir.

Christian Louboutin has just released what many are calling the most fabulous Cinderella-inspired shoes ever. No, they aren’t made of glass, but they certainly are a pair for inspiration.

What’s more is Louboutin’s Facebook page is going wild for these shoes. After sharing this photo last Thursday, there currently are over 33,000 likes, 4,500 shares and 1,200 comments all dedicated to the one instagram photo of the shoes. On Instagram alone, there are 22,000 likes and well over 700 comments. What’s even more interesting is the comments are in multiple languages as people go gaga over this interesting pair of shoes.

On Twitter, Cinderella is by no means a new subject (nor are her shoes).There are always quotes such as “proof that a pair of shoes can change your life” or “I’ve learned to NEVER look back. If Cinderella went back to pick up her shoes, she wouldn’t become a princess.” Although news Louboutin’s shoe is now sharing Twitter space, Cinderella stands well on its own, inspiring people everywhere.

Due to the popularity of this pair of shoes, many are wondering what’s next for this fashion designer. Well known in the fashion world, Louboutin will probably come up with something else that is equally as appealing. But if he wants another social media frenzy, he should try another princess. Belle or Aurora, perhaps? If another Instagram photo on his Facebook page is any indication, this is only the beginning.
