Stuart Weitzman's 5050 is both classic and contemporary. The look is top-notch, and, with a slender cut and an elasticized fabric panel at the back, it allows an ultra-slim fit. The low heel makes it great for all-day wear. What more could you possible want from a boot?See all Product description

Since I've owned the other pair of 5050s for a year, here are some tips from personal experience for new 5050 lovers who can still find a good quality pair (you may have better luck with leather than with suede) but find it difficult to get in and out of this style:
1. The easiest way to put on the 5050 boots, as conterintuitive as it may seem, is to remain in standing position when you do so. Your body weight will be working for you as you step down into the boot, and you wouldn't have to pull like crazy the way you would if you were sitting.
2. The easiest way to take off the 5050 boots is to roll down the top (turning it inside out from the top and peel half way down) before pulling out your foot.
[And here's the main review.]
Last year (late 2013) I splurged on my first pair of 5050 boots, a gorgeous pair in softest black nappa leather. When I tried them on at the store, I also lusted over the cola (brown) suede version which felt like caressing butter in my hand - but of course, at this price I couldn't get two pairs in a row and decided on just the black ones (see, I was being "sensible" lol).
I couldn't put them out of my mind though, and kept checking back - the cola suede ones became unavailable for months on end in my size, and when I saw them return this fall (2014), I was overjoyed and could no longer resist ordering them.
When I finally got them though... WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT! While the cut/style remains the same 5050, this year's suede material is thicker and much more stiff, nowhere near as luxurious as before (which was how it should be considering the price tag). Even the box they come in is shorter this year, with the boot shaft folded in half to fit inside, as opposed to the extra-long box of last year that accommodated the full length of the OTK 5050s. I feel that they have skimped on the quality while raising the already sky-high list price by another forty dollars.
Sorry Stuart W, it's just unacceptable and these are going back. To be fair, the quality is not bad and the style is fabulous as always. But for a luxury product at this price point, I expect nothing less than exceptional quality - else we could just go for the Franco Sarto or other boots of similar style at less than a quarter of the price.
However this purchase caused us much frustration, primarily over the fact that the boots did not arrive with the official purple boot box that Stuart Weitzman is known for but instead were packaged in a plain brown cardboard box. As such there was a bit of a panic that we might have been duped into purchasing a pair of knock offs and I immediately contacted both amazon and Stuart Weitzman to verify the authenticity of the product. Both companies have exemplary customer service teams who acted, almost immediately, to assuage my concerns. Amazon simply stated right of the bat that the boots were legitimate and that I should not worry about my purchase. Stuart Weitzman went one step further and asked me to send them several photos to help their experts authenticate the product. In the end the boots were deemed to be 100% genuine and Stuart Weitzman even sent my girlfriend an official box and boot sleeve for her to store her gift it.
All in all you can trust that the boots you order will be the real deal but I can't guarantee that they'll come with all of the bells and whistles that you'd get if you bought them direct from the manufacturer or a shoe store.
I have wide feet with bunions from years of poorly fitting shoes. I can walk on these all over NYC! The fact that it is low heeled makes it soooooo sexy. It makes people wonder....hummmm :) Also I have thin ankles and large calves. The fabric on the back makes it fit snugly, perfectly all day long. Putting them on and off is super easy and comfortable.
