Beyoncé keeps the beat with Weitzman-adorned feet

Don’t go looking for any glass slippers on the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. But one is likely to find plenty of bejeweled pumps and military-inspired boots on the feet of pop’s reigning queen.

Beyoncé, who launched The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour Monday in Belgrade, Serbia, revealed a steady stream of Stuart Weitzman-designed creations, including black combat ankle boots, brass satin pumps (see photo above) and blue Swarovski crystal embedded pumps. Her backup dancers and band members also donned styles created by this famed craftsman and Greenwich resident.

Check out some of the sketches of the lace-up, military inspired boots and the blue pumps.

Weitzman has designed the shoes for Beyoncé’s last two tours, as well as special performances.

The shoes for this tour had to complement multiple costume changes, which have already attracted fans and some critics.

In a released statement, Weitzman commented on his more than six-year collaboration with the singer:

“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.”

This has already been a high-profile year for Weitzman, who also put his stamp on Cinderella’s glass slipper for the new Broadway musical that opened earlier this year
