    Jimmy Choo share soar.

    Shares in luxury shoe maker Jimmy Choo soar as it puts itself up for sale

    The London-listed company - made famous as the brand of choice for Sex & The City character Carrie Bradshaw - is to conduct a review of "the various strategic options open to the company to maximise value for its shareholders", including a sale.

    It has invited interested parties to make themselves known to its bankers, Bank of America Merrill Lynch or Citi.

    "There can be no certainty that an offer will be made, nor as to the terms on which any offer will be made," the company added.

    In the past acts like this have been done because the company is short of cash-flow, and I see no reason the think otherwise here.

    Who the hell would pay from 500 to more than 1000 for a pair of blinking shoes ?

    Here is one of their websites: http://www.jimmychoo.com/en/women/shoes/?gclid=Cj0KEQjwrYbIBRCgnY-OluOk89EBEiQAZER58hnU91UDeJi3F89EFhkK130bjS6_6DzMgkYpJ3m8Z84aAoXY8P8HAQ

    I honestly do not know anybody that would pay those prices.

    And that could be the precise reason why Jimmy Choo is now up for sale.

    There can only be a few millionaires that are willing to spend so much on a pair or a few pairs of shoes.

    Yes, we hear about women in particular that have bag and shoe spending addictions, but there cannot be very many that actually spend those amounts on shoes.

    Maybe I am just not living in the same rarefied air that they do.

    OH... now you've got me, as I just love the Jimmy Choo shoes. flower

    Of course, on a teacher's salary I could never afford to buy anything from Jimmy Choo.

    Now you are just making me feel sad. Crying or Very sad

    You are just going to have to be happy with the boutique-type of shoes as even although they too can be expensive they can be more within ordinary people's budgets.
