Although the man himself has been shooed, many fashionistas are willing to pay dearly to be shod in Choo's shoes. J. Choo, which does business as Jimmy Choo, gained its original notoriety from celebs strutting in the strappy shoes down Oscar-night carpets and across Fashion Week runways. Still, the upmarket shoemaker caters to self-proclaimed divas. It designs and manufactures shoes, distributing them through about 30 of its own standalone stores and some 167 high-end retail outlets. Jimmy Choo also sells products online. The company is a subsidiary of German luxury goods firm Labelux Group.
