The Stuart Weitzman 5050, among other cult faves, deserve its own fan page or heck, even its own Twitter account. The point is that some shoes are so versatile and well-made that even It-girls who have access to all kinds of designer footwear return to the same boots again and again, season after season.

These iconic two-tonal stretch suede boots singlehandedly spawned an obsession with the over-the-knee style that has yet to meet any competition. You can almost bet that if a celebrity is wearing a flat, OTK boot, it’s the good old 5050. Fun fact: Olivia Palermo owns them in nearly every colour, including brown, navy, olive green, and black. Plus, Kate the Great starred as the face (and body) of the boots’ very own ad campaign, and you know when Moss is involved, it’s a timeless choice.
