It's about time.

When it comes to heels, it’s a complicated relationship. At the start of the night - it’s all love and feelin’ fly, but by the end there’s often nothing but hate.

Our plastic hero Barbie has been rocking heels for 56 years (girl, we feel your pain). Now the time has come for her arched feet to touch down on Earth while, wait for it… wearing flats. 

Shocked? So are we. Relieved? So are we. It was getting difficult to keep up. 

Mattel is releasing the new Barbie Fashionista line, which includes dolls with adjustable ankles and selections of 8 different skin tones, 14 facial sculpts, 18 eye colours, 22 hair styles and 23 hair colours.

Barbie, welcome to real life.
