Remember those shoes Christian Louboutin custom-made just for Angelina Jolie to wear during the Maleficent promo tour? The good news is that they can now be yours. Now dubbed the “Malangeli,” the sculpted wedge heels that Angelina herself had a hand in designing will be available in black and red. They can now be pre-ordered at the five Christian Louboutin flagship stores and should be released in October.
Now, for the bad news, the shoes come with a very steep price: $1,495 to be exact. Well, they did make them available, but they didn’t say they’d make them attainable. Actually, compared to other shoes we’ve featured before, that price is relatively fair for Louboutins that are limited edition, custom-made for an A-lister, and based on a box office hit movie.
Also, that price tag would probably be more acceptable if you’re aware that the proceeds from the sales will benefit SOS Children’s Villages (we’re pretty sure that Angelina had a hand in this). The said NGO helps orphaned and abandoned children in 134 countries around the world by giving them access to loving homes, education, and healthcare. For that, suddenly, no price seems to be too high.

The first time we saw Angelina wearing the shoes was at the Maleficent photo call in Paris:

Three days later, she wore the white bloody-heeled version:

Angie also has them in gold, which lit up Shanghai’s cityscape:
