Style on Trial: Jimmy Choo Multimedia cork wedges

Jimmy Choo Multimedia cork wedge sandalIt may only be January, but already the new season designs are starting to filter through and that includes footwear that is not at all appropriate for this time of year.  However, that doesn’t stop us looking and planning ahead, and when we saw these Jimmy Choo wedges we were curious to know what you would think of them.  Is there too much going on here (we think there might be) – leopard print, cork, a double layered wedge, tassels, snakeskin, plaited leather?  Could you get on board with all of this in one shoe, or would you prefer just one or two features from this list at a time?

If you like them, and would be willing to pay $1,095 for them, you can buy them at Neiman Marcus.

    It’s like they simply stuck together all the pieces left over from other shoes… When Louboutin did it, I was somehow ok with it, maybe because Mr. L is shoe God and I’m afraid to disobey, but these… Nah..

    There is nothing wrong with a complicated color scheme. I like them.

    I think because there’s so little of each pattern (except the cork) that it can work. Any more of those patterns would drive it too far though.

    No, they’re fine. Probably not something I personally would buy, but they’re not ugly. Maybe they could’ve skipped the tassel, though.

    I think all the elements work really well together actually. They look good, but they’re not to my taste.

    Eh… If they got rid of the leopard print (blech) and all the other crud except the brown braid, then made the sole all cork, I’d like it. I’m artsy-bohemian that way.

    Acch, why’d I say “Make the sole all cork”? I meant wedge. And I meant to say to replace all the other straps with the brown braid. I must’ve been half asleep when I wrote that!

    I rather like these. They’d look really good with a flowy white maxi dress, I think.
