British fashion house Jimmy Choo revealed a pair of limited-edition, fuchsia-colored boots covered in approximately 19,000 Swarovski crystals in celebration of “Sailor Moon’s” 30th anniversary.

The knee-high boots feature “Sailor Moon’s” signature crescent moon at the top of the boot and a 10-centimeter-tall heel (approximately 3.9 inches). The boots were first put on display exclusively at the Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Museum in the Roppongi neighborhood of Tokyo, Japan.

The crystal boots take inspiration from the boots seen in the series when the protagonist Usagi Tsukino transforms into Sailor Moon.

The boots will cost 1,796,000 yen (approximately $13,123) and will be released in limited quantities. The creative director of Jimmy Choo, Sandra Choi, expressed excitement for the collaboration and stated that the “Sailor Moon” concept of fantasy and femininity aligns with Jimmy Choo’s vision.

Similarly, Vans also released a line of custom sneakers in collaboration with “Sailor Moon” for the manga’s 30th anniversary last June.
