Cinderella’s slipper, many scholars believe, was made of fur, not glass. The word verre, or “glass”, they claim, was incorrectly subsituted in early versions of the story for the word vaire. In Medieval French, vaire meant “fur”.

Its probably for the best. The last thing a fairy tale princess needs it to have protestors throwing paint on her shoes everytime she leaves the castle.

"verre" spelled in different ways can mean Green, Worm, Glass...and other stuff. I don't remember, i haven't had french class in a while. :-/


But speaking of shoes, my feet KILL!!! We went to a renn faire today and i wore high-heels. I -never- wear heels, so what made me think i could wear them for hours and in grass, i dunno.

You don't mean that Cinderella is a true story, right? Just that in the original versionn of the STORY, they were fur slippers?

I think that's where this part of my post comes into play? Escially where it says early versions of the story?

Right, I got that. But when I first read your post, it sounded like there was a real Cinderella, and the story was mistranslated many years later, much like a few things that pop up here and there in the bible.

I was just verifying that Cinderella is a work of fiction.
