Swing the shift!

Sunday, March 2nd, 2014

It’s a new month, Ped fans, and we are beyond ready for the official start of spring in a few weeks! But looking at forecasts across the board, winter is not quite done with its chilly ways. So, what to wear?

Well, up top, we leave it to you to figure out the right mix of cashmere and cotton, coats and cardigans, but down on the ground, have no worries! Ped has the seasonal transition question solved in a bunch of stylish ways!

Behold shoes that let you air out the differences between winter and spring!

We love oxfords, but after the long slog through cold weather, we wish we could open them up a little! Pep Monjo to the rescue! Check out Pep’s new Lila lace-up:

Ta da! Perfect with socks or tights when the snow has melted but the grass is not yet green, the Lila is also ideal barefoot when the garden is in full bloom!

Mr. Monjo also works his design magic at Argila, where he has us wowed with another aired-out oxford, the Pilar:

So much charm for one easy-going shoe! We especially like the rounded stacked-leather heel, black leather piping at the seams, and sweet cutouts by the heel and over the toe!

If you prefer a lace-up that’s less traditional, then feast your eyes (and feet) on the air-conditioned Trippen Chill:

Crafted from twice-dyed leather that’s black on one side and white on the other, the Chill leaves no grey area—it’s simply the coolest shoe to stroll down the street! Über-edgy and über-fun!

Oxford-esque shoes aren’t the only way to swing into spring. The Argila Arianna offers a breezy buckled option:

Isn’t that caramel leather delicious? The Arianna offers the same winning ways as the Pilar above, but in a t-strap design that we adore!

Perhaps you flip for a zip? Then do a back flip for the back-zippered Trippen Skipper:

This strap-happy design just makes us smile! Saucy with socks and tights for the remaining chill days, the Skipper is ready and waiting to let your bare skin soak up the sun!

Looking for something more lady-like? Then let your femininity out to play in the cute-as-can-be Cydwoq South:

A true blue shoe to see you through the seasonal shift, the South features Rafi’s latest innovation: an easy ankle tie of leather petals! Sweet as an April breeze! (Wishing this design had a little height? You’re in luck! Check out the South’s well-heeled cousin, the Cydwoq Market!)

Of course, if you really want to spring into Spring, then set your sights on the Cydwoq Sight:

You don’t have to wait for May flowers when you can put the garden on your feet in March! The Sight gives your winter-weary dogs a literal and figurative breath of fresh air!

As always, there are even more ways to walk from winter into spring over at Ped’s main site. Remember change is good, especially when you’ve got the right shoes to let you swing the shift with ‘zazz!

(Psst, this week’s Sweet Treat is the Cliff Dweller Canoe, which just happens to be another terrific season spanner! Click “be sweet to your feet” at the bottom of the box on the left at Ped’s main site to reach the Canoe, and then simply pop it in your bag to instantly receive 20% off at checkout! Easy-peasy and oh-so breezy!)

The wedge edge!

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

Let’s face it, Ped fans, wearing heels can give you a boost beyond just a few inches in height. Heels are authoritative and at the same time feminine and glamorous. Plus, they make a gal’s gams look fantastic! “Sure,” you say, “but who wants to teeter with every step when our lives demand we go, go, go?”

Enter the wedge! Solving the problem of comfort and balance, while still maintaining the advantage of wearing a heel, the wedge is the answer when you want your style to stand out and stand up. And do we ever have wedges that wow this season! Take a gander:

We all agree the French know a thing or two about looking chic, so, of course, Accessoire’s wedges are magnifique!, like this Papaye:

How stunning is this sexy peep-toe? How luscious is that tulip pink? Every time we look at the Papaye, we fall in love all over again! (And for those of you who insist on black, Ped also has the Papaye in your favorite color.)

Another winning wedge from Accessoire, the Nairobi, has a lower profile, but is no less beautiful:

If you’re looking for one sandal to do it all— walk the dog, attend a meeting, go out to dinner, and jet off for a weekend in Madrid— the Nairobi is up to the challenge! And your feet will thank you because they’ll be sooooo comfortable!

Speaking of Spain, both Argila and Chie Mihara, our favorite Spanish designers, have lovely wedges in Ped’s lineup. First up, Argila’s Eliana:

This go-with-everything wedge is back by popular demand, and it’s just as fresh and sexy as ever! We love the buckled wrap at the ankle, which is so of the moment!

As only she can, Chie Mihara brings rich color and femininity together in one glorious wedge she calls the Ruala:

Illustrating how less is more, this sandal’s minimal design is dazzling! Plus, the marine blue hue is so deep and delicious you’ll practically want to dive into it!

You say you want a funkier edge to your wedge? Then Ellen Verbeek’s Elka is right up your alley!

We are down for the count when it comes to this beautifully made shoe!!! Inspired by a bowling shoe, this lace-up peep-toe is striking! (Okay, yes, that was a bad pun—but a bad pun about a gorgeous sandal!) And Elka’s edgy wedge is wooden!

Of course, if it’s urban artiness you’re after, Trippen has just the ticket in the Airy!

The design is deceptively simple, but the bold cut of the straps and studding over the ankle make this sandal super hip and modern! Trippen’s t-shaped wedge sole, however, is what will win your comfort-loving devotion.

And there are lots more wedges to help you step up your style over at Ped’s main site! Slip one on and find out what it means to be well-heeled!

(By the way, this week’s Sweet Treat is also funk-a-licious: Couple Of’s cutting-edge Zebra sandal! Click “be sweet to your feet” in the upper right corner of any Ped page to land at the Zebra, with the discount code that will bring 20% off at checkout. You’re guaranteed to be all the buzz!)
