Stuart Weitzman's over the knee boot - the 5050 - is a definite icon. It's made up of half leather (or suede) and half stretchy material (lyrcra), so it's sure to be a fit for everyone.
They've been around the block for over 20 years and have been made a classic by the tastes of celebrities galore. Here are a few pictures of celebs (and a fashion blogger!) wearing these stylish kicks.
But... at around $600 a pair, they are definitely an investment. Sure to last a lifetime, but a definite splurge item. Here are a few look-a-likes that won't break the bank.
Nine West "Teggy" - $199
Vince Camuto "Karita" - $169
