After 56 years of standing on high heels, Barbie is finally slipping into a pair of flats. For the first time ever, Barbie dolls in Mattel’s new Fashionista line will have adjustable ankles to accommodate heeled or flat shoes.

Footwear isn't the only change Mattel is making with the Barbie line. The Fashionista line will also include eight different skin tones, eighteen different eye colors, and twenty-three hair colors along with different body shapes and sizes.
