Jimmy Choo and Hunter Wellington Boots Most handbag lovers are also shoe lovers. So this post will fit in nicely, amongst all the designer handbag chatter. Jimmy Choo shoes are positively known across the globe and their latest collaboration with Hunter is going to have the shoe world’s attention. Hunter, an iconic British brand, was established in 1856 and their Wellington boots are known for performance, durability and comfort. Hunter has a dedicated following worldwide embracing everyone from farmers to rock stars to the British Royal Family. And Jimmy Choo follows suit nicely. Jimmy Choo may not ubiquitous with farmers but celebs, rock stars, and shoe lovers save to splurge on magnificently designed Choo’s.

The collaboration between Jimmy Choo & Hunter has resulted in a sophisticated rendition of the Wellington boot with crocodile print and a branded top bind. Everything about these boots are perfectly stylish and wearability is key. For all the rain Florida gets in the summer, I would have use for these boots. And just looking at this picture I can imagine women around the world wearing this fashionable rubber boots and jumping through puddles. I am already decided to go on the waitlist for these boots. The boots will be sold exclusively in the United Kingdom and the United States and online at www.jimmychoo.com from June 2009. A waiting list will be available for the boots from 1st May on www.jimmychoo.com. Hunter & Jimmy Choo Retail Prices: £235, €295 and $395.

Inspired by stylish festival goers, this limited edition boot marries the quintessential design elements of Jimmy Choo with the original British tradition of Hunter – the ultimate fusion of fashion and function. The legendary Hunter silhouette with natural rubber construction has been embossed with signature Jimmy Choo crocodile print and branded top bind. Gold buckle hardware, metal rivets and an extra long eyelet strap add attention to detail. A leopard print lining provides a contrast against the black glossy rubber of the boot. Presented in the original black Hunter box and lined with leopard print, the boots have a unique identification plate, uniting the logos of these two iconic British brands.

“I was inspired by images from the festivals of the hip Brit girls in their wellies. This led to our collaboration with Hunter to produce a sleek interpretation of the British classic” says Tamara Mellon, Jimmy Choo President and Founder. Hunter is a symbol of the British way of life, whether city slicking or embracing the great outdoors. Established in 1856, Hunter Wellington Boots”Ÿ outstanding performance, durability and comfort has become legendary, with a dedicated following worldwide embracing everyone from farmers to rock stars to the British Royal Family. Peter Mullen, Hunter Chairman, comments: “We are delighted to work with Jimmy Choo to create a superbly sophisticated incarnation of our original Wellington Boot.

    Those are amazing! Unless they did a Huntress, too, though, they probably wouldn’t fit comfortably on my legs.

  • dangster

    LOL, I may move back home to Seattle just to wear these boots :D

  • lka

    Sorry. I prefer the tried and true traditional Hunters. These remind me of elephant legs! Jimmy Choo should stick to stilettos.

  • justified

    I liked it, but not so sure what it will look like in real. Wellies/hunters been around few seasons, I am not sure if they will be still popular upcoming seasons.

  • Denise

  • Miffed

    Had these in my net a porter basket yesterday and sale had gone through and reference provided by e-mail, then I get an email asking me to verify my card and address which I did twice and they told me the card was not being verified despite the fact that I know all the details I provided match?! I smell a rat (or moc croc) here and funny how they sold out straight after and my basket is empty and order ref meaningless – I won’t be shopping there again in a hurry and besides have my fab Tory Birch wellies still from last season. I thought customer service was paramount in a recession???
