I know I’m a slow adapter, but I love these super fitted high knee boots. I desperately want to blow all my $$$ on the Stuart Weitzman ones, but (1) I’d rather go on a European excursion (2) they’ll probably end up making me feel like a sad shorty (3) I don’t think there’s room in my apartment for yet another pair of shoes .

A while back, Jean of Extra Petite compared the girls’ (which might have been a good option for shorter legs) and women’s version of the 5050, but her general consensus seemed to be that the adult pair was far superior.

I uncovered this ridiculously affordable version with similar styling (no zip) at a fraction of the cost. However, when I tested them out (to no surprise) they weren’t really fitted through the leg and I guess the old adage is true: you get what you pay for.

For now – I’ll just have to stare at other girls with long legs enjoying their $700 boots. 😂
