Based on the Miramax film starring Joel Edgerton, and inspired by true events, Kinky Boots takes you from a shoe factory in Northern England to the glamorous catwalks of Milan.

Charlie Price is struggling to live up to his father’s expectations and continue the family business. Looking to save the factory, Charlie turns to a fabulously fashionable new friend — cabaret star Lola — who gives him an outrageous idea that could change both of their destinies.

Soon, this unlikely duo creates the most sensational footwear that’s ever rocked the runways of Milan, giving the factory and its hardworking family a sparkling new future.
