Item Information
Name Ruby Slippers
Used by Dorothy Gale
The Ruby Slippers are one of the Foundation Elements, appearing in The Wizard of Oz franchise.


The ruby slippers are the magic pair of shoes worn by Dorothy Gale, as played by Judy Garland in the classic 1939 MGM musical movie The Wizard of Oz. Because of their iconic stature, the ruby slippers are now considered among the most treasured and valuable items of film memorabilia.


  • In L. Frank Baum's original novel, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900), on which the film is loosely based upon, Dorothy wears Silver Shoes. However, the color of the shoes was changed to red in order to take full advantage of the new Technicolor film process being used in big-budget Hollywood films of that era.
