Be Inspired No. 37 - Heritage Shoe

Imagine finding inspiration from a patent your father obtained 75 years ago. A patent for a product that was never produced.

Stuart Weitzman has introduced the limited edition Heritage shoe, created for the brand's 25th anniversary. The snakeskin shoe with calfskin straps is based on a design that Stuart's father patented in 1936. 

His father, Seymour Weitzman, designed/patented this shoe in the 1930's as a double crisscross T-strap stiletto. But the proposal didn't come to be. Damn that "mary jane" which ruled the 30s. The Heritage is a modification of this design with a platform higher heel and snake print. It is available in three colors.

 Bravo to Stuart Weitzman for making this design a reality!
