Sarah Jessica Parker is selling a new version of her Sex and the City character’s iconic pair of mismatched heels.
In episode 13 of season three of the HBO show, which originally aired in September 2000, Carrie Bradshaw heads to Los Angeles with Miranda Hobbes, played by Cynthia Nixon, and Samantha Jones, portrayed by Kim Cattrall.
At one point, the fashionista steps out in a floral dress and a pair of pink and blue mismatched strappy Christian Louboutin sandals, with the eclectic look turning out to be a longstanding favourite among fans.
Now, Parker has partnered with the team who run popular Instagram account Every Outfit on Sex & the City on a mismatched shoe, called Rogue, for her SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker footwear brand.
“Going Rogue over at @SJPCollection. In collaboration with our friends at @everyoutfitonSATC, we’re thrilled to announce the arrival of our highly anticipated mis-matched sandal. A not-so-subtle nod to a certain very special lady’s well documented footwear moment from many years ago,” the actress wrote alongside a photo of the brand-new design.
In addition, bosses at SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker will donate 20 per cent of the proceeds of the limited-edition pink and yellow satin designs to The Empowerment Plan, a Detroit-based organisation that provides employment and training to low-income individuals who manufacture sleeping bag coats for those in need.
The project soon caught the attention of Parker’s celebrity friends, with Kerry Washington commenting, “LOOOOOOOOOOVE,” and Michelle Pfeiffer adding: “So beautiful.”
The Rogue designs are priced at $385 (£296) and are now available to purchase from the SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker website.

Cynthia Nixon has tapped into the popularity of her Sex and the City alter ego in her bid to become the Governor of New York.
Cynthia became a household name after being cast as tough lawyer Miranda Hobbes in the much-loved HBO show, which was set in the flame-haired star’s native New York.
In March, the actress announced she would be running for office, and is now releasing a line of Miranda-inspired merch to help spread her message.
And the garments, T-shirts, a cap and canvas tote bag, coincide with the 20th anniversary of Sex and the City.
“Are you a Miranda voting for Cynthia? In honour of #SATC20, here’s a line of Miranda merchandise designed by the team behind the “Every Outfit on Sex and the City” Instagram account… because, well, we should all be Mirandas who vote for Cynthia,” Cynthia wrote on her social media pages, with a link to the Cynthia for New York store.
Slogans like “I’m a Miranda and I’m voting for Cynthia” and “I’m a Miranda (crossed out) Future Governor of New York” are splashed across the garments, with prices ranging from $28 (£21) for a child’s T-shirt to $38 (£28) for a hat.
The 52-year-old is taking on current Governor Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat like Cynthia, though she recently lost her bid to become the Democratic Party’s nominee. However, she’s not giving up, and plans to collect at least 15,000 signatures via a petition to earn her place on the ballot as an independent candidate.
Her Sex and the City co-stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Kim Cattrall have all shared their support.
If Cynthia does land the political role, she’ll be the first female, openly gay governor in the state’s history.
