Reminiscent of the ever-so-popular jelly shoes of the 1980s, and more recent incarnations such as Marc Jacobs Rubber Ballet Flat Shoes which debuted in 2007, Italian furniture powerhouse Kartell, internationally renowned for modern furniture design in plastics, and young Italian fashion label Normaluisa recently released a shoe collection of plastic ballerina flats aptly called Glue Cinderella. Combining Kartell's innovative technology with Normaluisa's youthful design sensibility, their latestcollaboration offers classic style with an edgy vibe.
Giving the shoe its imprint is just what Kartell did. Made in PVC with an injection-molding technology that allows for the creation of two-toned shoes combining transparent and opaque materials, the shoe is available in a variety of different shades. The playful design comeswith the added bonus of being waterproof.
