The Air Force 1 Upstep Hi LX is a new fantasy sneaker from Nike that has been appropriately dubbed the 'Glass Slipper,' as it takes inspiration from the fairy tale of Cinderella.

The all-new sneakers designed exclusively for women take the form of pastel-colored footwear that is coated in shimmering sequins that are accented by white details. Unlike the hard sole of a glass heel, these sneakers from Nike boast a comforting shape. These special-edition summer sneakers include a high-cut silhouette, a raised outsole and a reinvented look that revives the classic Air Force 1 sneakers, which were originally introduced in 1982.

From fantasy makeup brushes to unicorn-inspired beverages, consumers are investing in whimsical products that delve into the world of magic, folklore and fairy tales.
