It would appear that shoes and movies are not necessarily meant to go together. But could you picture Dorothy’s red sequined pumps from “The Wizard of Oz” or Forrest Gump’s Nikes from “Forrest Gump” without them? Or, Kill Bill minus those recognizable mustard-colored sneakers.

There are many iconic shoe moments throughout the history of cinema, and each time we see one of these moments, we think to ourselves, “Wow, wouldn’t it be cool if I had that?” Designs of any kind became an enormous phenomenon simply by appearing on screen for a few minutes, regardless of whether this was done intentionally or by accident. These shoes have not only held a special place in our hearts, but they have also made an indelible mark on the culture of film.

When it comes to the most famous pairs of shoes, we can’t forget about the glass slippers that Cinderella wore, which were worn by Lily James. 1.7 million Swarovski crystals were used to embellish the slippers before they were sold.

Uma Thurman wore a pair of iconic yellow Onitsuka Tiger México 66 sneakers in the film “Kill Bill,” which were worn by the character Bill.

Marty McFly’s auto-lacing sneakers with lights in “Back to the Future Part II” made a great impression on viewers and many wished to own a pair of shoes. In 2011, Nike produced a limited edition shoe that was only made available to the film’s most devoted followers. After that, in 2016, the company decided to reintroduce them to the market. It is estimated that there are fewer than 1,600 pairs available for purchase across the world.
