These suede Jimmy Choo boots remind me of the Golos …

… but the Choos are more subtle, with less embroidery and muted colors. I’m going to hold out for the eye-catching originals.

    I like the originals too. Really stunning, and I adore that chunky heel.

    Yes those are divine! I’ve been on the hunt for a great pair of Victorian embroidered boots. The Choos are a bit watered down, go hard or go home!

    Those are BOOTS!! I’ve never seen them before – where have I been? You don’t walk in these – you fly.

    I love the Golo boots, that’s what I call Flower Power.

    Ellen’s boots “kick” Jimmi Choo’s ass!

  10. Indeed, who wants subtle when it comes to embroidery? Go for the Golo.

    Is it tacky to want embroidered boots and a matching embroidered gown? Because I want those.
