Why didn't Cinderella's glass shoes turn back to normal?

Asked by Berserker (33529points) September 26th, 2015

In the Cinderella fairytale, after midnight, everything turns back to normal. The horse carriage turns back into a pumpkin, the horses back into mice, and her dress back into tatters. But the shoes remained.
Now I realize it’s a fairytale, plus it couldn’t have continued without the glass shoe. You know, since the prince is such a damn dumbass and can’t recognize the face of someone who he seemingly fell in love with.

But it still makes no sense. I saw that new Cinderella movie, and it showed that her old shoes were turned into the glass ones, so I started thinking about different versions. Maybe the godmother materialized the shoes out of nowhere, so, unlike the rest of the things touched by magic, the shoes weren’t affected by the time limit restriction? In other versions, perhaps. Not that new one.

So for the hell of it, why didn’t the glass shoes turn back into normal crappy slippers, for the versions where the latter were turned into fancy footwear? (and not materialized out of nowhere)
