Remember when Gigi Hadid designed her very own pair of “It Girl”-approved over-the-knee boots for shoe brand Stuart Weitzman? Now, the supermodel is back with her second collaboration for the brand – but this time, she has created the slip-on flats we’ll all be drooling over this season.
Gigi revealed the first look at five different styles of “EYELOVE” and “EYELOVE MORE” pointed-toe mules, now on sale for $498-$598 a pair. Some of the shearling-lined suede shoes are adorned with traditional “evil eye” designs, good luck charms that are said to protect wearers from harm.
“The evil eye is a powerful symbol meant to protect those who wear it from negative energies. It’s emotionally comforting and beautiful and captivating to look at,” Gigi shared in a brand statement.
As part of her new campaign, Gigi also modeled her chic flats in a campaign video called “The Season of Giving.” The street style vibe of these shoes really comes to life in the clips.
The star also revealed that a portion of sales of this year’s designs, like her first collaboration, help support one of her favorite charities. Gigi has once again partnered with Pencils of Promise, an organization that builds schools and helps increase educational opportunities in developing areas around the world.
“This style represents our commitment to build three additional schools with Pencils of Promise, an organization dedicated to making quality education accessible to kids everywhere,” Stuart Weitzman shared.
We love that not only can we feel stylish while shopping this exciting shoe launch, but we will also be giving back to a worthy cause with our purchases!

Look Good, Do Good. Let's do it again. 👁💛📚✏️ (video directed by @cameronduddy !! adding link to my insta story today!) x
Now you may be asking yourself, why did Gigi choose to create slip-on flats for this collection? Well, not only are the designs incredibly trendy at the moment, but the model shared that this shoe style is a major part of her own day-to-evening dressing.
“Anyone can pick the most sparkly, random, amazing shoe they can find,” she said. “But I wanted something that spoke to me and that I could wear every day.”
“I’ve gotten more into my comfort zone in terms of clothes in the sense that I’m just super down to be comfortable all the time—even when I need to get dressed up,” she added. “I feel a lot more confident in something that’s comfortable. The flat is sleek and chic but you don’t feel like you’re thinking of your feet all day because they’re taken care of.”
Now that’s some inspiration we can get behind!
