We know the celebrity set is practically addicted to a skyscraper heel. After all, one of the most ubiquitous shoes seen recently is Stuart Weitzman’s ‘Nudist’ sandals. But, alas, even the starlets cannot survive on stilettos alone.
Enter the Jimmy Choo ‘Marlin’ boot.
It’s the season’s latest style from the CHOO.08 collection of more casual, every-day footwear that still retains the same glam, cool-girl edge for which Jimmy Choo is known.
The black textured leather and spotted snakeskin version of the ankle boots are the epitome of CHOO.08’s laidback yet alluring approach that creative director Sandra Choi envisioned with the collection.
Equipped with a pointy toe and multiple buckles, the ‘Marlins’ boast a retro rock-punk edge that’s classic yet just slightly—delightfully—rebellious.
Amber Heard, Jamie Chung and January Jones are but a few of the stylish lovelies who have been spotted in the shoes, each showing off just how much bold attitude these booties bring.
While they added edge to Amber’s off-duty jacket-and-skinny-pants, the pair couldn’t have provided a more directional, yet sophisticated spin on Jamie’s leather and lace ensemble. And January was thoroughly street-chic in her white message T-shirt, flared denim and cat-eye shades, using her booties to tie together the best of both vintage and modern worlds.
Do the ‘Marlins’ have you hooked?
