Ped’s Anchor in Alaska: Marie’s Tale of the Sole

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

Ped fans, we’re sorry we’ve been so remiss! It occurs to us in the Warrens of the Warehouse that we haven’t shared a Tale of the Sole in ages! And since summer has thoroughly yielded it’s bliss to fall’s chill, it’s the perfect time to tell the following tale. Let’s join Ped fan Marie for a quick trip North of the Border. Way North. To Alaska, to be exact. Here’s her report about her Ped-happy home:

Waiting in line at the alaska-grown vegetable booth at the alaska state fair. a gentleman came up to me and asked, “Young lady, May I ask where you got your boots?

Marie sports her Ped Shoes North of the Border

Wearing her Ped Shoes, Marie takes on the wilds of Alaska. (Luckily, the wilds of the farmer’s market are no match for her style either!)

I retrieved a business card from my wallet and handed it to his wife, explaining exactly why I shop at pedshoes :: satisfying shopping experience. meticulous craftsmanship. timeless style.

Recently I came to the realization that shoes and, in particular, boots, are tools for my needs. So, I never feel I must rationalize purchasing well-made hand-crafted boots.

And Marie goes on to mention her experience with us Ped-sters:

Dayna is always knowledgeable and helpful, even going as far as donning a pair of show-room boots and shooting a photo when I have questions about appearance and fit. Thank you, Dayna and Ped Shoes for all my unique and artsy tools….

Spreading the Ped Love!

We’re blushing! And as a token of gratitude for sharing her shoes, Ped is delighted to give Marie a $100 gift certificate!

Do you have a Tale of the Sole? Tell us—and show us (we LOVE pictures!!!)—what happened to you while wearing something from Ped, and you, too, might be the recipient of $100 in Ped credit. We’d love to share your sole-ful story on the blog, so let us know what in the world you’ve been doing in your Ped!

From Across the Sea, here comes Chie!

Monday, August 10th, 2015

As delicious as we find Summer here at Ped HQ, it’s a welcome treat when our fall styles begin to arrive at the warehouse! It seems like forever since we placed our orders, so opening the boxes leads to a whole new round of oohing and aahing.

And no designer here at Ped gets more OOOHS and AAAHS than our lovely Spanish friend, Chie Mihara, who has once again outdone herself for Fall 2015! Her feminine creations, filled with whimsy, make us smile over and over again! Given what a scorcher this summer has been, it’s lovely to imagine brisk fall days and what we might wear with this shoe or that! Try it yourself with this taste of Chie Mihara’s fall feast!

Let’s begin with Ms. Mihara’s new Frias:

Chie Mihara Frias in black and cream leather embossed with gold

Sweet chutney sandwich! Chie made us swoon when we opened the Frias. Her choice of black and gold leather is embossed with a gorgeous chic-yet-subtle design which states its style with a wink rather than a yell.

Next up is the Chie Mihara Fady:

Chie Mihara Fady in Wine, Navy and Brown

The dawn-to-dusk style of the Chie Mihara Fady is at home from Brooklyn to Barcelona! And with a padded footbed, rounded toe and 2″ heel, your feet won’t fade as evening turns to night.

Looking for something with a pinch less height? say hello to the Chie Mihara Buddy:

Chie Mihara Buddy in Black and Twig

Buttery soft, lustrous brown leather? Check. Classic style with a hint of sass? Check. All day walkability? In spades. And speaking of cards, another style that’s sure to win Hearts is the Chie Mihara Jan:

Chie Mihara Jan in Leo and Carmin

Jan’s oh-so-feminine feeling is easy to rock because of a lifted footbed, yielding a simple 2.5″ heel height. And the speckled cream, red and black leather contrasts are sure to catch the eye of that special guy. And what could be better than that? We have this beauty in two colorways!:

Chie Mihara Jan in Nuit and Granit

Are you starry-eyed yet, imagining how you’d look and what marvelous adventures you’d have in Chie Mihara’s latest designs? Well, the above stunners are just the beginning of all the Chie Mihara gorgeousness awaiting you at Ped’s main site! Why resist? Go ahead and fall for fall!

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…
