JIMMY CHOO x MOON BOOTS

Jimmy Choo teams up with Moon Boots


Jimmy Choo is creating a limited edition range of Moon Boots.

The shoe company has teamed up with the Italian label for the collection, which will be available to buy in October. Fans don't need to wait that long to get a glimpse of the designs though, as they will be debuted next month alongside Jimmy Choo's Cruise 16 range.

"[I have] always loved the futuristic, yet retro-cool Italian design of Moon Boot, and [I'm] delighted to create a Jimmy Choo signature look befitting the style," creative director of Jimmy Choo Sandra Choi told WWD.

Among the offerings will be boots made in fox fur and shearling.

As well as being available from Jimmy Choo stores and its website, the collection will be sold in some department stores and via Moon Boot's online store.

Moon Boot was created in 1970 and its looks are inspired by the footwear worn by the astronauts who landed on the moon in 1969. They tend to have large rubber-look soles and are laced up to mid-calf, with the pieces perfect for colder climates and snow.

It's not the first time Jimmy Choo has dipped its toe into moon boots, having previously created a pair covered in leopard print and with patent detailing.
