Since we’re all going to be told to “Bow Down” to Beyoncé all summer, we might as well start getting familiar with her footwear, amiright? Stuart Weitzman has just released sketches of two of the shoes he designed for Bey’s “Mrs. Carter Show” World Tour, which kicks off tonight in Serbia, and we know two things for sure. One is that we’d fall flat on our faces trying to bust a move in heels like these, and the other is that the 3-D versions are going to kick some serious ass.
Weitzman has been designing shoes for the pop star for years, and she even testifies to having “literally danced a thousand miles in his beautiful shoes,” so the partnership should come as no surprise. For the latest set, the designer created Swarovski-encrusted stiletto pumps and military-inspired boots in both thigh-high and ankle versions.
“Creating footwear for Beyoncé’s shows has been one of my most inspiring projects,” Weitzman says in a press release. “She and her entire team know exactly what they need, always focusing on the fashion and the function of the styles that will be worn.” Now, we just wonder whether he’ll be conjuring up something appropriately punk-influenced for her Met Gala appearance.
