NYC Street Sound Off: Favorite Celeb Designers & Who Should Collaborate Next?

Though often caught up in the daily hustle and bustle of the busy New York City streets, locals and tourists alike can almost always find space at Bryant Park to give their feet a rest. Footwear News took a walk over to the Manhattan haven to ask park-goers about their personal taste in celebrities and designer shoes.

FN: Which celebrity would you most like to see do a shoe collaboration?

Tyrell, 23, Bronx, N.Y.

“Usher because I love his music, fashion and the way he dances. He’s cool and suave, and I like his stage presence. His shoe would probably make me feel that way.”

Danni, 25, Newark, N.J.

“Beyoncé. I love her style, she’s so fierce, and I would feel super-powerful wearing her shoes. I would feel like Beyoncé.”
