Christian Louboutin has recreated Cinderella's iconic glass slippers.

The footwear designer was invited by Disney to reimagine the fairytale character's famous shoes in honour of the release of 'Cinderella' Blu-ray Diamond Edition in August and he relied heavily on the original story for inspiration.

Speaking about the collaboration, he said: ''Cinderella is not only an iconic character when it comes to grace and fairytale love, but also shoes. The dream is a major factor in my language of design.''

''Her character and her story dictated the design to me, it was all there in the pages and the words of this tale.

''There are no limits in the world of fantasy and there is always a happily ever after.''

According to Disney: ''Delicate lace adorned with crystals gives these slippers an enchanting look. Two sparkling butterflies rest prettily on the shoes, one landing on the vamp while the other sits closely behind atop of the crystal covered heel, gently brushing the ankle.

''Louboutin's signature red soles add the final dash of excitement as Cinderella's slippers come alive.''

'Cinderella' on Disney Blu-ray Diamond Edition will be released on August 27.
