50 Days of Holiday Gifts: The Boots

So many tall boots out there—how to choose? Let Jennifer Aniston be your guide. She (and scads of other stars) swear by the Stuart Weitzman “5050” boot, which turned 20 years old last month. This fashion classic has spawned many variations from the designer, all with the signature elastic back panel. Aniston loves the Highline, sporting a sturdy four-inch heel, and the DemiSwoon, a suede wedge model (both pictured). Indy’s new Stuart Weitzman store stocks both, plus different styles and colors to the rafters. $598 and up. Stuart Weitzman, The Fashion Mall, 317-218-7559, stuartweitzman.com.
