He was in the stands on Nov. 1 for the season-opener of the Garden City Broncbusters basketball team.

Gigi Hadid might very well be the trendsetter of 2017. From spearheading the popular Brit-style skinny neck scarves earlier this year to making nighttime pajamas appropriate for the daytime, this young model is back at it again with her version of the best fall transitional shoe - a pair of mules designed in partnership with Stuart Weitzman ’s new creative director, Giovanni Morelli. On Wednesday, Hadid wore her brand-new EyeLove mules made of a buttery soft tan suede and shearling trimmed interior with a chic white suit by Turkish designer Zeynep Arçay . The name “EyeLove” is a signifier of the “evil eye” motif found on the left shoe of the “EyeLove” mules. The second version, EyeLoveMore , conversely, features a multitude of evil-eye motifs on both feet instead of just one. The popularity of mules is often credited to their closed toe and open back, keeping your feet cool, yet warm, and the low heel provides extra comfort, making them the perfect fall transitional shoe. “I’ve really been into slides lately and wanted a pair that can take me into fall … no more cold toes!” said Gigi Hadid in a press release statement. “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.” You can easily dress the mules up or down for everyday use and even wear them during the forthcoming holiday season. Wear them to work with your favorite pair of slacks and a cozy knit sweater, or dress them down for a casual weekend brunch with jeans and a tee. Choose the black suede version, and style it with a dark floral or velvety dress for Thanksgiving dinner. The EyeLove mule retails for $498, and the EyeLoveMore mule is priced slightly higher at $598; both are available now on stuartweitzman.com . Although the mules are pricey, there is a charitable component to the shoes that might help you justify the splurge. Each purchase will benefit Pencils of Promise , a charity that helps build schools, trains teachers, and funds scholarships. Stuart Weitzman has pledged $105,000 to build three schools this fall, specifically in Ghana, Guatemala, and Laos.
