How Judy Garland's ruby slippers were made

Judy Garland's ruby slippers were created in a special way like no other shoes in the world!

In a nutshell, the original ruby slippers were covered with around 4,600 metallic sequins (2,300 sequins on each shoe) and they were all hand-sewn directly onto the shoes with built-in fabric. Different ruby slippers come in different shades of ruby red, from bright to dark burgundy.

The bow on each shoe were cut out of strap leather and dyed red, then decorated with 46 red glass rhinestones with antique style claw settings, 3 large rectangular red glass jewels and 42 dark red bugle beads.

The actual shoes underneath all these beautiful decorations were made of 1930's white silk pumps from Innes Shoe Company Ltd in Los Angeles and then dyed red by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios (MGM).

Some of the shoes had a gold or silver stamp, while others had cloth sewn on each right shoe with the company's logo. Also hand written on both shoes is Judy Garland's name which is still visible today.
