PARIS - When the clock struck midnight Cinderella's carriage turned back into a pumpkin, her horsemen to mice and her gown to rags, but the glass slippers magically remained, one of them in the hands of Prince Charming.

The lesson here? Don't mess with the shoes. As Disney re-releases its classic fairyale onto Blu-ray DVD, the king of shoes, Christian Louboutin says his piece with his very own version of the whimsical heel. The design features sheer lace with heels covered in crystals, two delicate, butterfly accents and the signature Louboutin red soles.

"Cinderella is not only an iconic character when it comes to beauty, grace and fairytale love, but also shoes," says Louboutin. "Her character and her story dictated the design to me, it was all there in the pages and the words of this tale."
