Rupert Sanderson Names Sandra Bullock’s Minion Shoes His Favorite Custom Design

Rupert Sanderson is reminiscing about his Sandra Bullock moment earlier this year. When big hit “Minions” was released over the summer, the designer was tasked to craft a special pump for the star. Now, the designer told Footwear News that the star-studded project was his favorite custom look.

“It’s always fun to take a shoe and tell a completely different story with it. Making the Minion shoes for Sandra Bullock this past summer was absolutely ‘bananas’! It is unusual to be able to literally express a film so directly in a shoe — it was very exciting to do.”
