I remember as a child thinking that glass slippers were a really bad idea. I mean how were you supposed to be comfortable wearing (not to mention dancing in) a pair of rigid shoes that could break so easily? These glass-beaded slippers still have a princess-y sparkle to them but are so much more comfy!
