Jimmy Choo’s Mei – the practical, designer work pump

Jimmy Choo MeiJimmy Choo has always done contemporary so well. With the new Mei heel, the label is setting the fashion agenda, re-introducing the almond toe shape after many years of pointy toe domination. And with a 3 inch set-back heel, this Italian-made shoe seems perfect for the office. What could brighten up a dull Monday better than a shiny red patent leather designer high heel?

Mei is a shrewd move by the Jimmy Choo brand. For the past couple of years Choo has been ensuring it has wardrobe staple pumps in a variety of heel heights which never seem to go out of fashion. Choo’s 5 inch Anouk was introduced as a direct competitor to Christian Loboutin’s Pigalle (compare them here), but other offerings have been more sensible – and marketable – in terms of heel height. Hence in recent years we’ve seen the 4 inch Abel labelled as a great designer work pump. The even more practical 3 inch Mei now joins that list.

We will be watching for more news about Mei but we already predict that this shoe from the Autumn / Winter 2014 Jimmy Choo collection will be a raging success. You can pick up a pair online now from mytheresa.com for €425.
