The Most Wanted Jimmy Choo Sneakers
Jimmy Choo Raine Sneakers
Combining a chic 90s-inspired influence with a contemporary urban edge, Jimmy Choo’s Raine sneakers come in a choice of suede, leather, neoprene or glitter-embellished panels. Updating a classic silhouette with modern features, this low-top style sits on a thick sole embossed with the ‘CHOO’ logo and padded ankles for wearing comfort.
Jimmy Choo Hawaii/F Sneakers
Available in a variety of colors and designs, Jimmy Choo’s Hawaii/F sneakers fuse a low-top panelled upper with a chunky rubber sole. Embossed with ‘Jimmy Choo’ across the heel, these lace-up sneakers come complete with star eyelets and a padded ankle.
Jimmy Choo Inca/F Sneakers
Made in Italy from a range of contrasting fabrics, the Inca/F design gives a nod to sports-luxe style with its high-top silhouette, chunky cushioned sole and Jimmy Choo branding. Multifaceted star eyelets, tubular flexed laces and cushioned ankles add the finishing touch.
The Jimmy Choo Sneakers Sizing Guide
Although the brand has East London roots, most Jimmy Choo’s sneakers are made in Italy and therefore Italian sizing is used. You can use the chart below to find your corresponding UK, US or Japanese size.
For example, if you typically wear a women’s UK size 5 or a US size 8, then you should buy your Jimmy Choo sneakers in a size 38.
How To Care For Your Jimmy Choo Sneakers
Jimmy Choo sneakers are crafted using premium leathers and materials, and the brand recommends following the below care information to maintain the look and feel of your sneakers for longer.
• Jimmy Choo sneakers made from leather and other delicate materials may be negatively affected by humidity. Sneakers that are exposed to humidity, salt and atmospheric agents may experience permanent and irreversible wear and tear. Jimmy Choo therefore advises to avoid wearing your sneakers in the rain, as well as direct contact with heat, oil, grease (make-up), alcohol (perfumes) and other abrasive products.
• Avoid wearing your Jimmy Choo sneakers with materials that may transfer colour onto them, such as new denim.
• Sneakers should ideally be stored in the Jimmy Choo dust bag and box provided when not in use, and away from any heat sources.

- How do I know my Jimmy Choo sneakers are real?
All Jimmy Choo footwear, including sneakers, will come with a branded dust bag, box and designer tags. An authentic Jimmy Choo shoe box is a light creamy beige color, and should have the word ‘London’ in a smaller front beneath the brand name.

The insole logo has ‘Jimmy Choo’ in upper case with 'London' in a smaller front below, while the sole has the same as well as ‘Made in Italy’ and the Italian shoe size.
Jimmy Choo products are sold by Jimmy Choo retail and outlet stores, as well as authorized department stores, retailers and specialty stores.
