Best Mary Jane Shoes Inspired By Disney Classic ‘Alice In Wonderland’

Like many things that change over time, so has Lewis Carroll’s beloved character Alice. The pretty blonde-haired young girl has undergone a makeover in today’s release of, “Alice Through The Looking Glass.”

For those who’ve seen the original 1951 animated version, “Alice in Wonderland,” also from Disney, Alice was to say the least — a bit more demure. particularly in her  sense of style. She is easily recognized for her now iconic blue dress, white smock and classic black Mary Janes.

While Mary Janes have typically been a little girl’s look, the silhouette is currently being embraced by women’s high-end footwear brands to yoga-ready athleisure looks and everything in between. What’s behind the popularity of the silhouette? Comfort is a big part of the story, with its signature instep strap offering the wearer a more personalized fit.

If you are still shy about stepping into a pair, don’t be. In fact, those celebs recently spotted down the red carpet barefoot may have been  a bit more steady on their feet if they had only opted for a pair of Mary Janes.
