Look for Less: Stuart Weitzman 5050 Boot

5050_blanap_12

The Stuart Weitzman 5050. It may just be every woman’s dream boot, and for a good reason. Despite being one of the most widely-coveted boots in the world, the 5050 is extremely customizable. Not only is it available in both napa leather and kidskin suede, but it comes in veering heel heights and calf widths. This flexibility basically guarantees that everyone will find a version of the 5050 that works for them.

One thing that might not work for everybody? The hefty price tag. All that customization comes at a sizable cost, and in order to make a pair of 5050s yours, you will first have to invest $635.00 into the shoes. I know, I know, it’s a lot to take in. Don’t panic, though, because until you are ready to make that investment, here are three similar pairs to tide you over:

Carvela Wood Elasticated Back Over the Knee Flat Riding Boot – Available for $386.95, these Carvela boots are almost 50% less than the drool-worthy 5050s. For a lower prints tag you will get a style mirroring Stuart Weitzman’s, including the electric back and almond-shaped toe. The boots also mimic the over-the-knee fit of the more expensive pair.

Steve Madden ‘Hooked’ Boot – The ‘Hooked’ boots from Steve Madden are strikingly similar to the Carvela pair (and therefore the 5050s), but retail for only $189.95. Like both pairs, these feature an elastic back, over-the-knee fit, and come in a supple black leather.

H&M Knee-High Boots – For those of you who prefer suede, these may be the 5050 imitations for you. These H&M shoes are practically a steal at only $59.99. Aside form the “suede” look, these lovelies hit just above the knee and have elastic detailing along the back.

Unfortunately, not everyone can spend the money on a gorgeous investment shoe such as the Stuart Weitzman 5050 just yet. Thankfully, there are several lookalike at lower prince ranges, offering a similar look without breaking the back.
