The soulful soles of Deux Souliers!

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

Ped fans, it’s been a while since we invited a new shoe line into the Ped house, but we are so excited to welcome Deux Souliers!

Deux Souliers means “two shoes” in French, but the company itself is Spanish! Based in Barcelona and led by designer Nunu Solsona, Deux Souliers embraces “slow fashion,” attending to each design in a considered and unrushed way. Deux Souliers’ approach is to adapt classic styles to make them fresh for a modern era while keeping their timeless quality intact!

The shoes themselves are handcrafted in Menorca (yep, that’s Pep Monjo’s base, too) using 100% Spanish materials. The result? See for yourselves:

Let’s face it, there are a lot of ankle boots out there this season, but Deux Souliers’ Collar Bootie still manages to stand out from the crowd:

DSCollarBootie

We love how the mocha-colored nubuck section embraces the chocolate suede collar, tongue, and toe almost like a reverse spat. And the red top-stitching on the midsection is fantastic! If you’re not down with brown, we also offer the Collar Bootie in a gorgeous navy blue.

Another style that’s everywhere is the oxford, but once again Deux Souliers gives theirs a little something extra. Say hello to the Blucher Strap:

DSBlucherStrap

The basic oxford is beautiful, but the addition of the snap strap, which rises diagonally and then zips around the back, is sheer style genius!

Another classic lace-up receiving the Deux Soliers treatment is the deck shoe. Preppy no more, the Nautic Oxford is urban and edgy:

DSNauticOxford

The combination of black leather and felted wool makes this shoe arty and distinctive. Plus we’re gaga for the hexagonal metal grommets! So nutty (couldn’t resist) and fun!

But Deux Soliers is not done with its deck-shoe inspiration! The boat shoe also gets transformed into the head-turning Nautic Heel:

DSNauticHeel

How we love a red shoe, and this one has us over the moon! All the elements–from the mix of pebbled leather and nubuck to the chunky heel to the outside leather lacing—ccombine to make one stunning package!

Nevertheless, we understand some Ped fans prefer a more minimal look. Deux Souliers keeps things to the stylish necessary for the Seam Heel:

DSSeamHeel

What a lean, clean, blue walking machine! The navy color is au courant, and the natural edge of the leather rimming the sole offers the perfect zing of contrast.

Of course, if you’re ready to step things up and make a big statement, Deux Souliers has just the thing! Drink in the gorgeousness of the Chelsea:

DSChelsea

Such a rock ‘n’ roll rebel! The Chelsea may be a super-chic badass, but this bootie is still a pleasure to walk in, letting you strut your stuff with ease while flashing a little toe cleavage or colorful tights!

Are you as wowed as we are by Deux Souliers? We’re so pleased to add these “two shoes” to Ped’s treasures! Now, the only question is which pair to wear first…

Keep it short and sweet, Part 2

Friday, September 5th, 2014

Ped fans, in Part 1, we took a tour through the beautiful flatlands of this season’s ankle boots. (And word to the wise: many more flat-soled booties have since arrived from Trippen, Argila, Cliff Dweller, and Cydwoq! So much to love!)

Today, we’re gaining a little altitude by surveying our favorite heeled bootie designs. So step up and take a look!

When it comes to hella-beautiful heels, Chie Mihara is the reigning queen! She’s solved the difficult equation of how to elevate height and style without lowering comfort. Exhibit A: Chie’s new Carta.

The deep blue “Shantung” leather is as lovely as a midnight sky, and the black leather forming the knot over the toe and wrapping around the 3.5″ heel provides the perfect complement.

Another Chie Mihara beauty that will make you swoon and sigh is the stunning Dalatchi:

The shaft of this low boot is a jaw-dropping weave of wool and leather! We adore the contrast in textures between the shaft, the matte black leather upper, and the sculpted wooden heel and sole.

Argila also woos us with a wooden heel on its new Katniss ankle boot:

The sculpted 2.75″ heel works so beautifully with the streamlined curves of the leather upper on this sexy, sexy boot! Plus, Argila’s brass hardware on the twin zipperss (both inside and outside the shaft) is drop-dead gorgeous!

Like a boot with a few buckles? Argila has something drool-worthy for you, too! Check out the hellaciously great Harriet:

Truly, this is the boot that made everyone at Ped HQ ooh and aah when it came out of the box! From the trio of buckles, to the saucy zipper up the back, to the softly folded leather ruffle spilling out of the top, the Harriet is one hot tamale!

As long as we’re talking about booties with back zippers, let’s wax rhapsodic for moment about the Coclico Valentine:

What a knockout red boot–and it’s not so red that you can’t wear it every day! We especially like how the shaft dips down just slightly in back, making this bootie a good bet for all calves, from curvy to willowy!

Taking things even lower on the ankle is Coclico’s new Nanette, another big favorite this fall:

There’s something about the simple leather tie and slot over the interior tongue that sends this wood-heeled design into the stratosphere of style! And the brick color is versatile yet unusual.

Trippen offers a different take on a laced ankle boot with the easy-going but oh-so chic Facile:

The pearlescent brown leather is first tumbled for softness and then coated with a thin silver wax to give it a lustrous sheen. Plus, the Facile‘s 2.25″ rubber wedge sole lets you add height while remaining grounded.

Fine, fine, fine, all beautiful, but what if you want a bootie that’s an after-five showstopper? Presented for your approval, the Cydwoq Crater:

This femme fatale seduces with black matte leather and leather embossed to look like  lace! And if that’s not flirty enough, Cydwoq closes up the design with two back buttons that reveal just a hint of flesh in between the tabs.

Of course, if you really want to razzle dazzle ‘em, zip in and zip up Cydwoq’s Hexagon:

A showboat of a shoe boot! You will definitely be the badass belle of the ball in this chic and edgy beauty! The woven antiqued silver leather will make everyone swoon, but the stable 2″ resin heel ensures you’ll be the last one standing!

We could go on and on because there are still so many beautiful booties to see, but we’ll leave you to explore them on your own at Ped’s main site! When it comes to boots this season, sweet and low is the way to go!

(In keeping with all the low-boot love we’re spreading, this week’s Sweet Treat is Fiorentini + Baker’s fab Elios bootie!

Keep it short and sweet, Part 1

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

You may have noticed, Ped fans, that this autumn, it’s all about the ankle boot! Sweet and low booties have held sway for several years now, but this season the designs go above and beyond. They’re sexier! They’re more versatile! And they boast more street sass!

So many knockout styles have landed at Ped HQ that we’re breaking our bootie tour into two parts. Today we’ll stay well-grounded with flat boots, and in our next post, we’ll amp up the altitude with heeled designs.

On with the bootie-ful show:

If you’re someone who likes things lean and clean, with zero fuss, Fiorentini + Baker has your holy grail: the Elf!

Simplicity at its chicest, crafted with good lines and lovely materials! We are crazy about the “Bosco” suede version, which is a light tobacco that looks great with everything, but if you must have black, we’ve got your back!

Minimal bells and whistles and maximal softness are also the key elements of the Trippen Bomb:

The Bomb‘s buckle strap is removable, so you can cinch or un-cinch, scrunch or un-scrunch, or even fold the top over, depending on your mood. The washed leather is sinfully buttery (how to stop touching it?), no matter whether you choose the washed brown version shown or the washed black.

Pep Monjo builds a cinching buckle strap right into the design of his Sybil boot:

We love this modern re-imagining of the classic motorcycle boot! Grey is still all the rage and makes a great neutral. Then again, a black boot is always a good bet!

Another convincing argument for going grey–at least, at the ankles–is Cydwoq’s new Mechanic:

How we heart this hearty lace-up with its cool piecing and top-stitching! And the Vibram rubber lug sole means the Mechanic is tooled for all-weather walking!

If you like a little extra fun in your functional bootie, the following three styles might have your name on them. First up, the Cydwoq Beacon is back with extra flair:

The Beacon was one of our biggest hits last year! For extra flash, we’ve added a splash of green and orange plaid suede to the mix. The result? The perfect fall bootie!

Trippen lives up to its reputation for playful designs by stitching a puzzle piece into its new Game boot:

Crafted from unbelievably soft leather, the Game is funky but still versatile and ideal for everyday wear! And who doesn’t love a zipper up the back?

Of course, if we’re talking zippers, our new be-zipped favorite is Trippen’s Helix!

How fun is this boot???!!!??? Not only is the spiral zipper innovative and entertaining, but it also allows you to wear this boot any number of ways! The coolest boot in the house, hands–er, feet–down!

As always, there are even more great flat-soled ankle boots awaiting your discovery at Ped’s main site! In any of these booties, getting caught flat-footed is a good thing!

(And don’t miss this week’s “endless summer” Sweet Treat, the Cydwoq Crete! Become a Greek goddess for 20% off by clicking “be sweet to your feet” at the bottom of the box on the left of most Ped pages. When you land at the Crete with the “Sweet Treat” designation, just add it to your bag to get the discount automatically at checkout.)
