I’ve always thought of Jimmy Choo as a brand that’s more “classic” than it is “edgy”, but with these ‘Loop’ patent sandals they seem to have ventured a little further outside their usual remit, with a vaguely gladiatorial style stiletto sandal in bright orange and black.
So, what do we make of these, then? At first glance I wasn’t convinced, with the black ankle cuffs putting me off. The more I look at them, though, and appreciate the slender stiletto and delicate shape of the shoe, the more I think these could actually be rather stunning on. I think the proof would be in the wearing here, and I’d need to see them on an actual foot to know for sure what I think of them. If you know you love them now, though, they’re £450 from Net-a-Porter.
BUY: Jimmy Choo Loop patent sandals, £450
love that orange colour. unfortunately the ankle cuffs are an aquired taste that I have yet to acquire.
I’m struggling to think what I could wear those with. Also, my boyfriend took one look at them and said, ‘they look like shoes the evil Empress of some planet would wear to kick her minions.’
Haha, your boyfriend makes a good point there, actually!
If I had amazing legs, £450, and a penchant for orange, I’d wear them. Unfortunately the lack of any of the above would probably put me off 😛
I’m undecided. I think I’d need to see them on a foot (and leg) first.
Well stated, Holly! Personally, i don’t do “Delicate” shoes well so i’ve never been attracted to Jimmy Choos. These are still very delicate, even with the cuff and color. If they were a funky wedge, I might have been on board.
I’d like to see them on (my feet preferably, lol). I’m not a 100% sure, but I think it’s love!
I kinda like these!
I think they would look seriously hot on the right person with the right outfit but I could see it going badly…
I love them, but I can’t think of any outfit to go with them. Maybe if they weren’t orange and black which limits you to halloween colors.
i absolutely love them….very pretty yet funky
The leather sandals look great but I am not sure whether I like it.
