The show, held at Four Freedoms Park at Roosevelt Island in New York, featured models wearing an array of shoes including thigh-high boots, fitted boots and lace-up boots. Some of the models appeared to be having trouble walking in the thigh-high boots, and one model seemed to suffer a broken heel. Bergdorf Goodman’s fashion director Bruce Pask helped her to the end of the runway.
Some who were watching the show’s live stream on Tidal took to Twitter to speculate about what happened with the model, but Kylie Jenner, who was sitting front row with sisters Kendall Jenner and Kim Kardashian West, defended her.
Jenner also tweeted that she was proud of the model, adding, “[the model] didn’t want to disappoint” and “she’s awesome.”
Amina Blue, another model in the show, actually took off the shoes she was wearing mid-walk.
