Jimmy Choo

Malaysian-born shoemaker Jimmy Choo learned his craft early from his cobbler father before formalizing his footwear education at London's Cordwainer's Technical College, setting up a small shoemaking practice in a converted hospital building in 1983 that would grow into a household name. Men’s collections were introduced in Fall 2011, with slip-on skate shoes, high top sneakers, espadrilles, and sandals alike elevating sporty silhouettes in luxurious python, croc-embossed leather, patent, suede, and metallic fabrications.
