First thing first. I bow down to Barbie for wearing high-heels for 56 years. I, for one, can’t even wear them for 56 seconds. However, Barbie is all set to ditch her love for high-heels as a toy company, Mattel, is soon going to give this beauty a makeover where she will be seen donning flats.
This new Barbie collection will have articulated ankles designed especially for flat shoes. Its limited edition is already on sale. Mattel says: “With new articulated ankles, this Barbie doll can go from flat to fabulous in a flash, giving girls more options than ever before! She comes with two pairs of shoes—a pair of run-around-ready black flats and a pair of glam pink heels decorated with black flowers.”
Barbie herself calls this style comfy and chic!

But I got thinking when one of my colleagues said – “Where has the glamour factor gone with these new flat shoes?”
Do you also think Barbie looks non-glamorous without heels? I think she looks more realistic, representing a majority of women. What say?
