    Jimmy Choo Couture

    Hey, I have a pair of Jimmy Choo Couture shoes, they're covered in cream rough silk and are quite cute...
    They're "vintage", but they can't be too old as Choo started the Couture line in 2001 (?)

    Anybody know anything about the couture line? ... are they made for couture?

    :heart:

    DATUK JIMMY CHOO! haha. im rather proud of him since i'm a malaysian myself. its funny how he has only ONE store in malaysia when there's quite a lot of other designer stores here.

    and how horrendous of me to have met him and went all 'Oh, he looks really familiar but idk wtf he is.' two years back. i mean, he pretty much walked infront of me and i didn't know. :(

    I bought the most comfortable and classic pair of Jimmy Choo boots yesterday! They are called "London" and they're pretty simple - flat, black leather, knee-high boots. Exactly what I wanted (but surprisingly difficult to find ones that have great details, are easy to get on, are comfortable, classic and well made)!

    They sold them a few years ago - anyone else have a pair?

    all pics my own

    ^^^^^^So I guess you bought them on Ebay? 'Cause they're gorgeous! Like a nicer version of a Loefller Randall.

    Thank you! They are gorgeous, and they fit really well, which is a huge plus. It's difficult to find boots with a half-zip (one that doesn't go all the way to the top) that are easy to get on, but this zipper is angled and that makes it simple to get my heel and toe in place.

    No, I bought them at the 5th Avenue boutique. They sold them a few years ago and this season they're selling them again.

    Did anyone of you see the Glenys ( the gladtior style heels with the golden zipper in the centre) in green python? I am psyched cause I was able to get hold of one, but for an extra price from one of their boutiques but apparently they sell it around 300 US dollar extra.
    They are completely sold out everywhere!!! One of my SA told me that they are not making the green anymore but making a metallic colour for the spring, anyone heard of that?

    thanks for the tip-off about the sale! I personally think Choo's are underrated. There was a lot of hype around them in the early noughties thanks to SATC, but that has died down. I find them a lot of more comfortable than Louboutin's but that might be the shape of my foot.

    There's a great pair of Espadrille wedges by Jimmy Choo on Net-a-Porter at the moment for £191 (http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/38826) that my sister bought recently. I think that's pretty good value really for a pair of Choos.

    I'm usually a size 35.5 but depending on the designer and style i can be a 35.5, 36, even a 35 sometimes.I only own one pair of Jimmy Choos, the ones i posted a pic before and there are a 36.So i think they run pretty much true to size. Anyway i think i'm gonna have to let those beauties go...
