Stuart Weitzman Boot Review: 5050 vs Alljack vs Highland

Over the past few years, Stuart Weitzman’s knee-high and over-the-knee (OTK) boots have exploded in popularity. These boots are extremely well-made and maintain their shape for years. However, it’s been confusing at times to keep up with all the styles – especially those that are newer to the scene.

Oh hey summer, you’re finally here! Unlike the rest of California (or even the Bay Area), San Francisco typically stays overcast and chilly during the actual summer months. We don’t get “real” summer weather until September, with warm temps lasting through October. Though we had an unusually sunny season in San Francisco and record-breaking temperatures over Labor Day Weekend, it’s been nice to have consistently 70+ degree days these past few weeks. I’ve been taking full advantage of the warm weather to dust off some favorite summer-y pieces from Tobi!
