The iconic over-the-knee boots are stylish, stretchy and beautiful. They are exactly what you expect them to be and more. I’ve been coveting them for years so when I found the not-so-steal option but almost half off from the same designer, I had to share the find away. This will help you get those dreamy boots while not entirely breaking the bank. Now let’s move on to the main differences. Stuart Weitzman 5050 boots: the splurge version has a taller shaft, which really gets over-the-knee so if you’re 5.5’’ I recommend the 5050 boots and have a short heel, which make them great to walk around the city. Stuart Weitzman over-the-knee wedge boots: the steal version has a hidden small wedge but they’re equally comfortable so you can also walk with them. Both boots are stretchy, slim and look great on.
