After 50 Years in High Heels, Barbie Will Finally Get to Wear Flats

After over five decades of wearing wedges and stilleto heels, the always fashionable Barbie will get articulated ankles. These will permit the doll to wear different types of shoes comfortably. This is the latest change thanks to Mattel's new "Fashionista" line. CTV reports:

It’s the first time in the iconic doll’s history that she will be able to step out in relative comfort. Past incarnations have always featured heeled-shoe accessories for the ever-youthful party girl, whose feet were perpetually frozen in an angled position.

But Mattel figured it only made sense that the new “Film Director Barbie” would wear “running-around-the-set flats.” Don’t worry though, she can still put on a pair of heels for the movie premiere, the ad reads.
