With her long locks, impossible dimensions and all pink wardrobe, Barbie is one of our earliest and most enduring style icons.

Now thanks to a new collaboration between the toy brand and UK shoe designer Sophia Webster you can get your very own piece of Barbie's world with footwear inspired by the iconic Mattel character.

You may know Barbie for her super glamorous wardrobe but this new collection sees Barbie in flat shoes for the very first time.

Webster, known for her quirky and colourful shoe designs has reimagined her favourite styles for the collection which include 6 adult styles and a further 3 children's versions.

2 sneakers and 1 flat sandal make up the flat shoe offering whilst Webster could not resist a further 3 pairs of heels including a pair based on her signature Chiara sandal.

 

"Creating a shoe collection for Barbie has always been my dream project, but getting to be a part of her embracing flats for the first time made it extra exciting, and deeply personal."

"I love that this concept strikes a balance between dreams and reality - the idea of getting Barbie in some hi-tops and setting her loose in East London instantly appealed." Webster explained.

The shoes which are priced from £150 for adult versions and from £80 for the children's, go on sale on Thursday 27th August in Selfridges London.
