RICH YUNG REPORT: Jimmy Choo To Sell Sneakers

The style label that brought women the 10cm heel will soon also be stocking more comfortable wear, but at a price.

The Jimmy Choo sneakers have gold eyelets, exotic skins and star-print soles and will be launched in May, according to The Times.

The designer’s pre-fall 2010 collection features eight athletic-wear styles that will run about $473 for low tops, and $633 for the high-top looks.

Other shoe brands have already diversified into the trainer market, many opting for a “high-top” design, similar to a basketball shoe that comes up beyond the ankle.

The Jimmy Choo sneakers are available exclusively from Jimmy Choo stores.
