Sarah Jessica Parker played the character Carrie Bradshaw in the film and had worn the shoes for her engagement and wedding to Mr. Big. Not wanting to keep the iconic find to herself, Allen, who researches trends, took to Twitter to express her excitement.

However, since viral, Allen’s post has been met with delighted comments even though a few people are quite skeptical about the authenticity. ‘I’ve thought about these shoes all night.’ A user commented while a second insisted: ‘They’re the proposal shoes.
A third said: ‘I don’t wear high heels, but I want these.’ A few users wondered who might have donated such an iconic pair, with the suggestion that it might have belonged to Julie Bishop – Australia’s former Foreign Minister who occasionally gives iconic shoes to charity.
