“This experience has been such a thrill, from choosing the style to selecting materials to creating the signature box. I am so excited to finally share these boots and be able to wear them myself,” said Hadid.
Sales of the shoe will be donated to the charity Pencils of Promise, with Weitzman himself pledging to build three schools, one each in Ghana, Guatemala and Laos.
“I couldn’t have asked for a better way to further my partnership with Stuart Weitzman than to get creative, and am so happy to know the boots I designed will be helping kids through the non-profit organization, Pencils of Promise. I’m truly proud of this collaboration from all angles,” Hadid said of the charitable tie-in.
