“After countless tours and TV appearances and special concerts, I have literally danced a thousand miles in his beautiful shoes.” – Beyoncé
Not new to the collab, Weitzman has worked with Beyonce’s team for footwear at her performances for over 6 years, including tours: The Beyoncé Experience and I Am…Tour. Additionally, Beyoncé introduced Weitzman when he received the LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD from Footwear News, and in her taped video tribute to him she complimented Weitzman designs by stating:
“Creating footwear for Beyoncé’s shows has been one of my most inspiring projects. 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”, said designer Stuart Weitzman.
“We have so enjoyed working with Stuart for this upcoming tour, and seeing our creative vision come to life on stage through his designs,” says Raquel Smith. “He understands not only our needs artistically, but Beyoncé’s needs to perform comfortably on stage with each step she takes,” says Ty Hunter. We can’t wait to see her rocking the heels.. Brigitte Segura.
