Jimmy Choo ‘Tame’, £1,495
These shoes are called ‘Tame’, which is a little bit of a misnomer, because they’re really anything BUT. In fact, that gem-studded heel, sole and toe is actually a bit on the wild side, don’t you think?
These shoes are another example of a look I’ve really come to love, namely the glitter/jewelled sole. We saw a fair bit of this last winter, and as I said then, I think it makes for a more subtle (but still glamorous) effect than if the same techniques were applied to the upper. In the case of these shoes, not only do I love the colour (they also come in beige, for those of you who don’t), I also really like the way the Swarovski crystals go all the way from the tip of the toe to the end of the heel, almost as if the bottom of the shoe has been crafted from one single, bejewelled sheet of leather.
The fact that these are Swarovski crystals, however, is a sure sign that the price is going to be as high as the heel is. These are £1,495, and available direct from Jimmy Choo.
