Stuart Weitzman 50/50 Boots
November 13, 2013
We are no strangers to the Stuart Weitzman 50/50 boots. The iconic slim boots, with a perfect fit that extends right over the knee and is made of half stretch fabric and half leather or suede, are turning 20 this year and they keep evolving with new materials, heel heights, colors and widths. Needless to say, these elongating boots have become a Fall favorite among the fashion set. Brown, navy and burgundy suede versions look earthy and elegant, while the black patent leather, leopard print and Napa leather versions call for a rocker-chic mood.
Building your own 50/50 boots is a treat from Neiman Marcus! We thought of leaving it to our favorite It-girls – top models and fashion bloggers – who have been sporting the fantastic 50/50 boots from New York, Dallas, to Milan and Paris to show us how it’s done!
The 50/50 boots stride effortlessly into red-carpet events, film festivals, and as always, the streets!
