Jimmy Choo Goes Sporty!

WWD announced yesterday that Jimmy Choo's Pre-Fall line which launches sometime around May of this year will feature a more relaxed style than we have seen before - you guessed it - sneakers!

Jimmy Choo's trainers line is said to consist of a variety of high and low top styles in a number of luxe materials including suede, patent leather and exotics. From the press photo that was distributed we can tell the line will have a vintage hip-hop feel with just a touch of that elegant uptown edge that Jimmy Choo is known for. The kicks are going to retail for somewhere around $595 for a pair.

Now we love Jimmy Choo and I mean we were all OVER their H&M Collection but sneakers, I mean really? We love the idea of a stylish sneak but I think we'd prefer a $100 puma and save our money for a pair of their heels instead. The high top style is definitly cool but then again how much use would you get out of them? Not to mention that this style is very right now and we just know that we are going to see some of the cheaper labels out their do their own snazzy high-top like Steve Madden for instance. But that's just us. If you absolutely love your sneaks and want the ultimate in luxury then go for the Choos! We are especially loving the purple snakeskin "Tokyo" style which can be seen above and can totally picture them looking uber-chic with a pair of leggings and a zip-up.

What do you think of Jimmy Choo's new kicks? Would you spend $600 on sneakers?

Fashionably Yours,
