Maria Sharapova to Design Her Wedding Shoes

Newly engaged tennis champ Maria Sharapova may not have picked a wedding dress yet, but the Nike spokesperson and designer certainly knows what she will be wearing on her feet. “I will for sure be wearing Cole Haan because everybody that’s been talking to me about weddings and comfortable shoes said, ‘you have to be sure that you’re wearing comfortable shoes,'” Sharapova told PEOPLE at the 14th annual ACE awards presented by the Accessories Council at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York on Monday. “I’m for sure going to design them.” The tennis pro, whose engagement to L.A. Lakers shooting guard, Sasha Vujacic, was announced last month, said besides designing her own wedding kicks, she is also taking some time to bask in the engagement glow, refusing to stress out over a venue or guest list. “No, no, absolutely not, we’re going to take our time,” explained Sharapova, who, picked up the Brand Collaboration Award with Nike subsidiary Cole Haan last night. The Russian beauty, who is accustomed to wearing short tennis skirts, said she is open to the idea of a long traditional gown. “I think it depends on the design of the dress and how you feel about it,” Sharapova said. “Sometimes you want to go a little bit shorter, but I love when the dress is also long and fluid and you feel really elegant and flowy.” The 23-year-old also said she feels decidedly different since the engagement. “It’s a really good feeling,” Sharapova told PEOPLE. “At the end of the day we have each other and we obviously have our respective careers and we’re really busy but it’s great to come home to someone.” –Mary S.
