“I am a typed director. If I made Cinderella, the audience would immediately be looking for a body in the coach.” - Alfred Hitchcock

When you Google "thermoplastic technopolymer" 436 results appear, covering (on the first page at least) everything from modular staircases...to something called the Gnomes Napoleon stool...and, perhaps most disturbingly, "hose solutions". What you don't see are these very snazzy shoes...the result of a collaboration between one of the world's most innovative plastics manufacturers, Kartell, and Italian fashion brand, .normaluisa.

The only thing, in my mind at least, better than the selection of colors...and ability to keep feet dry, yet cute, in the rain...is their name, the Glue Cinderella ballerina flat, which takes them into the realm of footwear for heroines of fractured fairytales...

"No Cinders, I don't care how nice your shoes are, you can't go to the ball...but I will let you huff solvents in the kitchen before you get on with the dish-washing..."
