If one gets down to tracing the origins of the most-coveted shoes in recent times, it will come as no surprise if some roads lead to the Jimmy Choo ateliers. Case in point, celebrity-favorite Lance strappy sandals, gift-worthy Aveline bow shoes, and ever-classic Romy pumps, to name a few. The list is long, and we will have many chances to talk about them. Today is for the special Jimmy Choo Bing mule, a design that has become a House icon in no time.
Our Shoe Spotlight series highlights epic footwear styles designed by luxury brands and beloved by shoe lovers worldwide. We chose the Bing mule because of how great a design it is. Created by current Creative Director Sandra Choi and released in 2018, the JC shoe remains popular and occupies a special place in the hearts and closets of fashion’s top names.
3 Reasons Why We Love the Jimmy Choo Bing Mule
1. Unique Design
The slip-on silhouette of the staple mule is taken and transformed in a way only JC can. A sharp pointed toe is contrasted with an open back, while the leather sole is carefully curved to create a gorgeous arch and meet the leg-lengthening heel. The shining factor that propels the shoe to elegance heaven is the hand-finished strap of sparkly stones that sit around the foot like a tiara.
2. High Versatility
One can imagine the Jimmy Choo Bing sandal in any setting, be it a spring wedding, meeting room, dinner date, fashion week, or red carpet. The classy, style-elevating nature and wide range of options the brand offers make this a super versatile shoe option — one you can wear for any occasion.
3. Ageless Appeal
Like the other shoes from the mega shoemaker, the JC mule has an undying luster. It is glamorous, comfortable, feminine, and truly investment-worthy. You’ll keep wanting to wear your pair out no matter the season, as beautiful things are meant to be worn forever.
