Trust Jimmy Choo to make us love the combination of neon with snakeskin.
Neon and snakeskin?
It already seems wrong when you look at it in writing.
It’s doubtful in theory but in actuality, it’s not the terrible 80s horror show that first comes to mind.
It’s this fun and funky Jimmy Choo Magnum sandal that first stole hearts (and eventually drained many a wallet’s contents) when it debuted with the rest of the Jimmy Choo Resort 2011 collection sometime in June of last year:

Now, to make this a Sunday Shoe Showdown, we gotta have something to pit against these Jimmy Choos. And from the “Promiscuous – New Styles – August 2011” album on our Facebook page comes this worthy contender, the Quiana sandal.
Promiscuous wasn’t as confident about the neon colors so they did away with that and replaced them with these moss green and pinkish red colors:
Promiscuous Quiana sandals in green
Promiscuous Quiana sandals in red
Do you think that was a good idea or do you think this look-for-less option should’ve retained the neon colors instead?
The Jimmy Choo Magnum sandals are now sold out but the Promiscuous Quiana sandals are new arrivals and are available at Zappos for $69.00.
They also come in these neutral beige, taupe and black colors and this purple color which seems like a fun pair to wear:
Promiscuous Quiana sandals in purple
Promiscuous Quiana sandals in beige
Promiscuous Quiana sandals in taupe
Promiscuous Quiana sandals in black
So who wins it for you in this showdown — the original Jimmy Choos or the lookalike Promiscious?
