In celebration of the doll donning a pair of flats for the very first time, Sophia Webster has released a collection designed with every little girl's favourite companion in mind

Just as you thought Barbie would never trade her pumps for anything less than four inches, she surprised us by wearing flats — a first in half a century. And in light of that, the British footwear designer has released a collection themed around the world's favourite blonde. 

Two pairs of sneakers, a pair of flat sandals and three pairs of heels make up the collection. After all, you can't expect Barbie to completely give up her pumps immediately. A coordinating set of kicks for the little ones are also included — each derived from the designs of their adult counterparts. 

Speaking about the collection, Webster said, "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 Barbie x Sophia Webster collection is now available at the On Pedder boutique at Takashimaya Shopping Centre.
