Hello and welcome to JudyGarlandsRubySlippers.com!

We create hand-sewn ruby slippers, near identical to those worn by 16-year-old Judy Garland when she played Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, a musical film released in 1939.

The shape and size of our ruby slippers matches the "Witch's Shoes" or the "beauty pair" as they are sometimes called because they were used in close-up shots including the scene when Dorothy clicks her heels to return home to Kansas.

Thank you so much for stopping by our website. Please feel free to browse around for the information you need, and also have a look at some of our past and recent creations.

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 rounded antique style claw settings, 3 large high quality glass rectangular stones and red bugle beads filled the bow to give the extra shine.

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

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