So Jimmy Choo is moving beyond designer sneakers for men, and into a whole line of men's shoes. The line is said to have been created with a range of men in mind from artists to investment bankers. And I suppose that's why it just seems sort of… average to me at the moment. Sometimes when you design with too many people in mind, the ideas get a little watered down (only sometimes).

The collection has nice basics though: a biker boot, loafer, monk strap, sneaker, etc. I was looking for atleast one standout shoe amongst the line. But then again, when I think about what Jimmy Choo women's shoes are classically known for, it's top-notch craftsmanship and extreme comfort (even if they're 6 inch stilettos). So maybe the men's shoes will stick with that same blueprint for now and creatively branch out later.

A couple of random looks: One is "Uknown"… I didn't know what to call it, I saw the Vivienne Westwood Seditionary shoes, Cole Haan boots, and Hulme field briefcase, then just added a couple other shoes and accessories.The other is "Native Inspiration"…
