Stuart Weitzman and Jane Gershon Weitzman in conversation with Valerie Paley
Everyone on the planet—with few exceptions—wears something to protect the skin of the foot from the crust of the earth. Yet the humble shoe also can be an object of desire, display, and deliberation. In conjunction with our exhibition Walk This Way: Footwear from the Stuart Weitzman Collection of Historic Shoes, designer Stuart Weitzman and philanthropist Jane Gershon Weitzman discuss what shoes can mean and how they as a couple came to amass a substantial historic collection.
Walk This Way: Footwear from the Stuart Weitzman Collection of Historic Shoes is on view through October 8.
