I have long given up solving the mystery behind women's obsession with shoes. It's a discussion where men are always at the losing end. But did you know that the most sought after brand of shoes for women were designed by men? Stuart Weitzman, for instance.

The brand recently opened its flagship boutique in the Philippines at SM Aura Premier last August 8, 2013.

Stuart Weitzman, the King of Boots, has become synonymous with fashion and function. His stylish designer shoes are adored by celebrities and shoppers around the world. Based on the turnout of local celebrities and guests in its Philippine opening, right.

Known for his sexy stilettos and evening sandal designs, Stuart Weitzman store at SM Aura Premier offers the full collection including boots, career, flats and weather. Stuart Weitzman understands that a great shoe is more than form or function; it's about making a woman feel beautiful. For more than 25 years, his designs have garnered a very loyal customer base as accessible luxury footwear with great fit, style, and comfort.

Designer Stuart Weitzman said, "Manila is one of Asia's most beautiful cities whose women have sought out our shoes in their worldwide travels. I'm excited to launch my first boutique to showcase the complete range of Stuart Weitzman designs with our own retail environment. Filipinas will enjoy and embrace the Stuart Weitzman brand as we get to know one another."

With the help of LifestyleAsia, the event began with speeches given by Deputy Editor and Associate Publisher of LifestyleAsia Cheryl Tiu, VP for Operations, SM Premier Malls Steven Tan, VP Marketing Stuart Weitzman Asia Roberta Lee, and Editor-in-Chief of LifestyleAsia Anna Sobrepena. Fifteen personalities were then revealed as Stuart Weitzman's Ambassadors with each wearing their signature Stuart Weitzman footwear, of course.
Stuart Weitzman Ambassadors: Zandra Ty, Anna Sobrepena (EIC of LifestyleAsia), Cheryl Tiu (Deputy Editor and Associate Publisher of LifestyleAsia), Sari Yap (CEO and Founder of One Mega Group), Dr. Aivee Teo, Fely Atienza, Pops Fernandez, Ria Prieto, Jessica Kienle, Marilen Gonzales Elizalde, Mikaela Lagdameo-Martinez, Audrey Tan-Zubiri, Cristalle Belo, Jerika Ejercito, and Frannie Jacinto
This year also marks the 20th anniversary of Stuart Weitzman's iconic 5050 —a personal favorite of Angelina Jolie.

Thus, the boots will take center stage in the brand's Fall/Winter 2013 global ad campaign, and will feature the legendary Kate Moss, captured by Mario Testino. The creative strategy, especially the continuing visual vocabulary of black and white photography, plays on the concept that Stuart Weitzman's are the first thing a woman puts on in the morning and the last thing she takes off at night. Yet, the styling will take a different turn - minimalist in concept but with an edgy aesthetic that mirrors Moss' effortless signature look, which has catapulted her to international style.
