Stuart Weitzman is the shoemaker to the stars! His biggest fan is none other than King Bey, who has once again enlisted his services to design and create all the footwear for her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.
Weitzman told PEOPLE about the look they were going for, saying:
“We made her beautiful jeweled pumps, ankle boot lace-ups with metal trim on them … that are very sexy. We made her these boots up to the thigh that have a military influence. Those are the three principal designs, in lots of colors.”
“What Beyoncé specifically pays attention to is being able to [wear the shoes] without noticing they’re on her feet. She doesn’t want her feet to burn, so we can’t have too thin of a sole, but [she asks for] the build-up inside the shoe so it doesn’t look too heavy. The public doesn’t see or think about that, but Beyoncé does.”
In addition to Bey’s personal shoe arsenal for the tour, Weitzman also created all the footwear for her backup dancers and band. He says, “It was a project. We did something like 40, 50 shoes.”
