    Sorry to dig this old thread...... I have checked these shoes at a store in Sydney. These shoes are really well made.And there are many classic models (such as cap toe) Really solid the sole is work of art . Once you pick up a pair of JC you will recognize them from miles away . Ask me why ? The sole on these shoes are so damn straight - I mean you will not see a pair of shes with such straight sole. They sit on the shelf just flat. They are welted and channeled. Leather quality is top notch . All of their dress shoes comes with Flash mount toe tap (black rubber piece with 3 nails). The craftsman ship on these are flawless(I mean you will not find a blemish on leather or on stitching).These shoes are a perfect combination of English solid built quality and Italian sleekness. These are retailing at around $950+ which I would not pay.But I will happily buy them on sale at around $600.

    I am surprised how so many members here posted negative comments about these shoes. Gents go to a store and get your hands on a pair ........ then post your comments.

    Can anyone else confirm the quality of JC construction? Worth it at 50-70% off?

    I purchased a pair of Jimmy Choos to check it out from MrPorter since it was deeply discounted.

    Let's just say it was still overpriced rubber soled junk made to look like it was leather soled. Fit was horrible as the heel leather was rubbing right up on the bone. Issued a return ASAP.

    Checked again. These monk strap chukkas are quite nice.

    Handled a pair and they feel pretty solid. From the way they are finished, I cannot tell how they are constructed though.

    I don't think anything of them. What kind of work would you wear these to? Where would you go in these?
