What’s better than doing good while looking good? Stuart Weitzman has partnered with Pencils of Promise (PoP) to build schools in developing countries in hopes of spreading education to all. In collaboration with PoP, Weitzman has designed an exclusive yellow version of this season’s staple shoe, the Nearly Nude block-heel sandal, to benefit the cause. All proceeds from the shoe will go towards building three schools in Ghana, Guatemala, and Laos. In these countries, Pencils of Promise will be working to train and empower members of the community with self-reliant and sustainable skills to run each school.

With the help of Stuart Weizman, this partnership is taking PoP one step closer to their vision that every child has the right to quality education. The construction starts this June, with a Weitzman team heading to Guatemala. Weitzman and PoP held a star studded dinner last Monday at Sadelle's in New York to celebreate the collaboration and show off the sandals on some of our favorite it-girls. Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, and Joan Smalls were among the guests. Other attendees included Olivia Culpo, Devon Windsor, and Julia Restoin Roitfeld.
