Jimmy Choo is not alone in embracing the trend for 'summer glitter' next season. But what do you think of the shimmer stuff on these rather basic-looking plimsolls? (officially they're 'sneakers', but plimsolls is how my PE teacher would have referred to them, I'm sure):

Available in black, Royal blue or white, the shoes are embossed with the Jimmy Choo logo at the side (probably lucky, you wouldn't want your mates to think you'd bought them down the market after shelling out £295 for them). They have elasticated sides in the traditional tennis-shoe style, a gold, circular embossed panel at the back and thick, bouncy soles.

Then again, just think of the wear you could get out of these bad-boys - most likely far more day-to-day use than you'd expect from your typical pair of 'occasion' Jimmy Choos. In fact, we've gotta admit that the blue - the most eye-assaulting Bobby dazzler of the lot - looks pretty awesome worn with half mast jeans. So would you see these as a realistic summer treat for the feet after all? Let us know your opinions below...
