STUART WEITZMAN has designed 40-50 shoes for Beyonce's world tour.

The footwear designer has once again collaborated with the 'Girls (Run the World)' hitmaker to create numerous stylish yet comfortable shoes for the singer, her band and her dancers to strut around in on stage during her 'The Mrs. Carter Show' tour, which begins today (15.04.13) in Serbia.

Stuart told People magazine: ''It was a project. We did something like 40, 50 shoes. We made her beautiful jewelled pumps, ankle boot lace-ups with metal trim on them that are very sexy.

''We made her these boots up to the thigh that have a military influence. Those are the three principal designs, in lots of colours.''

The celebrity shoemaker - who has worked with Beyonce numerous times throughout her career - also revealed that the 31-year-old singer has significant input in the shoes she sports on stage in order to make sure she can perform her complex dance routines.

Stuart added: ''What Beyonce specifically pays attention to is being able to [wear the shoes] without noticing they're on her feet.

''She doesn't want her feet to burn, so we can't have too thin of a sole, but [she asks for] the build-up inside the shoe so it doesn't look too heavy. The public doesn't see or think about that, but Beyonce does.

''She really is interested in the way the shoe feels on her foot. She absolutely has the impression of not being willing to suffer, no matter how the shoe looks on her foot.''
