I first spied these boots last winter on a glamorous, leggy blonde in Harrods. After following her around the store just long enough to memorize every fabulous detail of the boot, but not long enough to get a security escort out, I promptly went home and scoured the internet until I found the right match: Stuart Weitzman’s 5050 boot. I am shocked that I fell so deeply in love with this boot as I typically generate towards taller, flashier (some would say ‘trashier’) items, and this shoe is anything but that. It is timeless and classic, yet definitely not boring, and oh so beautiful. I can attest to these attributes because even my mom (who is the epitome of class) was impressed when I sent her the link to them. This season, Stuie graciously brought them back AND I STILL WANT THEM. However, I think I’d have to sell one of my kidney’s to afford these boots. But hey, that’s why we have 2, right?
You can find these works of art here.
Bloomingdales also offers a slightly different version known as “Reserve”. It has a 1.5″ heel, as opposed to the 5050’s 1″ and also comes in black suede. My opinion of that though is YUCK. Go for the leather. To see Reserve for yourself, click fabulous.
And to my loved ones who might be reading this…size 7.
