Jimmy Choo Men’s Collection
It took me a while to come around to Jimmy Choo’s men’s shoe collection. I think I had anticipated the shoes would drastically change my perception of men’s footwear, and open a door to a world of exciting new colors, fabrics and silhouettes (in a manner similar to Christian Louboutin). Consequently, I was disappointed. I felt totally underwhelmed – these were just shoes! However, as time has progressed, I have drastically changed my outlook. I came to accept these for what they truly are: a collection of beautifully crafted high-quality men’s shoes that will work for any setting you can find. I’ve selected a few favorites below, but the whole collection (available at Mr. Porter) ranges everywhere from sandals to wellingtons to oxfords. Excellent materials, excellent craftsmanship. They really go to show that you don’t always need your shoes to show off. Sometimes a solid base for an outfit is enough. Check out the favorites below:
However, like all shoe collections, there are always overly garish messes:
In my mind the idea of a glitter-appliqued evening slipper started as a joke, and ended up becoming far too real. But then again, I’m sure plenty of people love these. Let me know if you think I’m wrong in the comments!
