It’s the dead of winter. Holiday parties are long past. It’s weeks before the first crocuses sprout. And daylight is still in short supply.
Time for a little pick-me-up, wouldn’t you say?
Well, that’s just what we at Ped Central have in mind! Welcome to the Ped Winter Sale, where those shoes you’ve been drooling over for months suddenly have a nicer price! Here’s just a taste of the sweet deals we hope will brighten your smile on even the greyest day!
First up, one of our favorite ankle boots this season: Argila’s oxford-inspired Lauren!
Argila serves up a lot to love, from the perforations on the toe to the leather’s pinked edges to the sculpted wooden wedge! Drool-worthy at
$418, it’s even more delicious at $209!
Another wonderful suede style, unlike anything else on the street, is Accessoire’s Euro-chic Ulrich:
Here at Ped HQ, we just can’t get enough of that luscious cassis color! Plus, the tie in back is so distinctive! Fabulous at
$358, the Ulrich is off the charts at $179!
As long as we’re on the topic of gorgeous suede shoes, take a gander at the Chie Mihara Pasion:
We heart this heart-embellished t-strap! Because it’s from Chie Mihara, you know it will baby your soles with comfort! Lovable at
$358, it’s simply irresistible at $179! (Anybody else suddenly have Robert Palmer singing in their heads?)
At least six more weeks of winter awaits (we’re making the prediction ahead of Punxsutawney Phil), so every Ped fan could use a great new pair of boots! Our suggestion? The Cydwoq’s Bend!
Crafted from Cydwoq’s a-maz-ing double-dyed leather, we love the way the red underside of the black outer reveals itself in the top flaps and along the seam that runs down the front and snakes over the toe! Sizzling at
$458, the Bend is burning down the house at $229!
Maybe a saucy little ankle boot is more up your alley? If so, one of the best this season is Cydwoq’s Artisan:
The mod look of this heeled bootie is smashing! We’re wild about the ultra-cool and subtle plaid pattern of the textured leather beneath the brown leather overlay! And you can’t beat a zipper up the back for sexiness! A looker at
$368, it’s a head-turner at $184!
If you’re looking for a bootie that’s less femme and more rock ‘n’ roll, consider the Trippen Brace:
The steel leather is fantastic, and the industrial embossing of the cut straps around the ankle is cooler than cool! (In fact, it’s ice cold, a la OutKast’s “Hey Ya!”.) Rocking at $318, it blows the roof off at $159! (Shake it like a Polaroid picture!)
Finally, we know many Ped fans wait with bated breath for us to put anything Fiorentini + Baker on sale! Well, rejoice because the “Bordeaux Wine” and “Blue Moon” versions of F+B’s Emmy Boot temporarily have a sliced price that’s oh-so nice (act fast because only a few sizes remain)!
Fantastic Italian construction is always in style! Boots to love for a lifetime! Worth every penny at
$518, they’re the bargain of the century at $399!
As always, these are just a taste of the delicious deals awaiting you in Ped’s sale section! What a way to give your puppies a little extra woof during these icy three-dog nights!
(One more special to tempt you: the Sweet Treat this week is Cydwoq’s stupendous Regiment Boot, which is much more interesting than the rank-and-file boots out there! Simply click “be sweet to your feet” in the upper right corner of any Ped page to be whisked to the Regiment with the magic code that will bring 20% off at checkout!)

Around this time every year, we start thinking about how things feel. We’re layering up to keep the cold out, and it starts to matter whether things are scratchy or soft, coarse or silky. Our fingers crave something nice to touch—and nothing’s nicer than reaching down and finding the satisfaction of suede on our feet!
Suede has the added benefit of making its colors really pop! Want to know the remedy for an overcast day? Hued suede shoes for dancing down the street! Allow us to show you what we mean:
When it comes to beautiful suede designs, Accessoire is in a league of its own! Say hello to the head-turning Ulrich:
How yummy is this shoe? The design is innovative and chic, and the cassis color is, in a word, intoxicating!
If you’re looking for a neutral, perhaps you’d like to slip on Accessoire’s Ueda:
Versatility gets a flash of French flair in this super-soft number, which easily shifts from a day in the office to a night on the town! (Mocha too low key? Then check out the Ueda in brilliant red!)
Work schmork—this time of year, it’s all about the after-five parties! Accessoire once again has just the thing with the Vram:
If you’re hoping to tie a certain someone around your little finger, this knot-embellished suede hottie is a good place to start! Holy moly—don’t be surprised if the sprinkler system kicks on when you walk in the door!
Fiorentini + Baker is also famous for having a way with suede! One of our favorite ankle boots this season is F+B’s Pansy (which we just got back in stock):
Simple yet devastatingly sexy! And because it’s made by F+B’s master craftsmen, every detail is meticulously rendered! Get ready for a lot of boot envy! (We also have the Pansy in luscious brown!)
Looking for a suede bootie that’s a little less “lady”? Let your inner cowgirl out to play in Fiorentini + Baker’s Enola:
Sassy city! Crafted in F+B’s go-with-everything grey ice suede, this little honey is flirty and kickass all at once. (Its brown version will also let you lasso hearts!)
Suede also plays well with matte leather in creative combos, as demonstrated by Cydwoq’s Regiment boot:
Pairing the zigzag-patterned suede shaft with the mocha leather body is a scheme I dreamed up and Rafi & co. executed! Hope you love this lace-up as much as I do!
Another terrific suede and leather ankle boot comes from Argila! Behold the oxford-styled Lauren:
From the wooden wedge to the perforated design over the toe to the pinked edges, this boot’s details are all pitch perfect!
Want even more funk and an even higher heel? Chie Mihara is happy to oblige with her fantastic Tamaia:
Plum suede, gold dots, and luxe black leather—what a tasty treat that will have everyone wishing they were in your shoes! It’s the heel deal!
Even more deliciously tactile suede designs are waiting at Ped’s main site. Let yourself be swayed by suede—your feet and fingertips will thank you!
(Speaking of tactile delights, this week’s Sweet Treat takes the cake: Cydwoq’s flirty Victim! Turn every head at every holiday party! Just click “be sweet to your feet” in the upper right corner of any Ped page, which will whisk you to the Victim, where you’ll find the magic code that will bring 20% off at checkout!)

Ped fans, sorry to leave you hanging! We meant to give you another color infusion much sooner, but this, that, and the other thing kept us from it. Nevertheless, it’s never too late to sing the BLUES! Definitely one of the “it” colors, blue comes in myriad shades this fall. Let’s explore, shall we?
If anyone knows a thing or two about color, it’s Chie Mihara! Check out her blue-licious Zuli heeled oxford:
The platform may be ’70s retro, but the styling is utterly modern. The Zuli‘s combination of matte black leather (love the perforated edges!!!) and cobalt blue suede is mesmerizing!
Need something a little more conservative (but not too) for the office? Cydwoq’s Trasmit is just the semi-rebellious ticket:
How cool is this lake-blue pump? Sure, it’s “lady” enough to wear with jacket and skirt, but that faux croc toe let’s everyone know you’re ready to take a bite out of them with your style!
If you like that particular shade of blue but want something casual, consider lacing up the Cydwoq Display:
Cydwoq remakes the oxford in a new way, with angled edges and a squared-off toe! And the lake-blue leather once again looks luscious!
Cydwoq takes blue into boot territory with the terrific Statue:
The way the design shows off the natural edge along the exposed seams, in contrast with the Statue‘s inky blue leather, is stunning! What a rock star—this low boot will have people asking for your autograph!
Natural-edged seams also amp up the charm of Trippen’s California bootie:
The tumbled leather of this back-laced lovely is sooooo soft, and the petrol hue is a muted teal blue. Fun, funky, and comfortable—Trippen does it again! Swing that fringe!
Another blue boot that will be your true-blue friend forever is Fiorentini + Baker’s Emmy:
As many of you have discovered, the quality of Fiorentini + Baker’s craftsmanship make their boots worth every penny! We particularly love how the Emmy‘s tough-girl design looks in this romantic Blue Moon color—as pretty as a night sky!
But maybe buckles, laces, and zippers are not what you have in mind; all you want is an easy slip-on in a cool color. Behold the Vialis Kate!
A clog unlike any other you’ll encounter—the leather-lined wool felt will bring the house down with its rich petrol color! But the Kate‘s beauty is more than skin deep; it also feels oh-so comfortable on, with a curved sole designed to roll with the motion of your stride!
Our last blue indulgence doesn’t quite follow the rules, but it’s just so cool we can’t resist including it! Take a gander at Trippen’s Treasure:
This brown boot gets its high-voltage “wow’ from its electric-blue edges! The exposed seams open and close to flow over the boot in wavy rivulets! Beyond gorgeous! When you want to wear a show stopper, your fortune lies in the Treasure!
So many blue-tastic choices—luckily, every option is a winner! Who knew having the blues could be so much fun?

A few years ago we added Argila to the Ped family, and Ped fans welcomed the Spanish line with open arms and delighted feet!
Now Pep Monjo, Argila’s founder and resident design genius, has created an eponymous line of footwear, with his signature right on the bottom of every sole! Exquisitely crafted in Monjo’s hometown of Menorca, each pair is timeless, yet the designs walk the cutting edge of European style. Take a look, and prepare to fall in love!
One of Pep Monjo’s many talents is his ability to spice up vintage-inspired styles with just the right details. Exhibit A: the Edith Boot.
At first glance, these look like a treasured pair of boots discovered at an estate sale, but the fold-down collar in back and the exaggerated tongue in front give the Edith decidedly modern flair! (Go only halfway with the laces to get the latest European look!)
For some Ped fans, it’s “black or bust”! If you’re among the noir lovers, Pep Monjo’s got your number with the Sybil Boot:
Much more interesting than the average motorcycle boot, Monjo’s version features crisscrossed straps and a seam over the toe—small details that make for a huge impact! And needless to say, the leather is luscious and the comfort divine!
Last but far from least, check out Pep Monjo’s Levigne Boot, which is, quite simply, boot perfection! (Think of it as the Nadia Comaneci of boots!)
Niether over-designed nor under-designed, the Lavigne is just right! Pep Monjo has granted the wish of so many gals who want one boot that will go everywhere and go with everything!
What a trio of beauties, each made to last a lifetime! If you’ve been craving a fantastic pair of boots for fall, Pep Monjo’s have your name (and his) on them!
Speaking of boots, we’ve harvested a bounty for Ped! Stay tuned because every day or so during the next week, we’ll be showcasing different heights and styles here on the blog to help you find the perfect pair.
(For instance, Coclico’s Kita might be right up your alley—in which case, lucky you because it’s this week’s Sweet Treat! Simply click “be sweet to your feet” in the upper right corner of any Ped page to land at the Kita, where you’ll find a magic code that will bring 20% off at checkout!)

Ped fans, it’s no secret, we love C O L O R !!!! Granted, a neutral go-to shoe has its place in every woman’s closet, but slipping on a sandal, oxford, or boot in a knock-’em-dead hue is a sure-fire way to lift your spirits!
So we present a Ped ode to Roy G. Biv, patron saint of all things colorful!
R is for red, revved up and ready to go, all of which describe the new Cydwoq Indies!
R is also for riveting, which describes this boot both figuratively and literally since the construction is all rivets—not one stitch!
O is for orange (Laura’s favorite!), so juicy in Fiorentini + Baker’s Elgin Boot:
Although F +B calls this shade “Indian Red,” it’s a lovely and soft orange reminiscent of canyons at sunset. The perfect boot to wear with a floaty summer dress!
Y is for yellow, one of the “it” colors this season. Yellow always makes us smile, and Cydwoq’s Submit makes us smile even wider!
A great everyday sandal, the Submit is one to leave by the door (especially if that door is at a beach house)! Slip it on and off you go!
G is for green (Dayna’s favorite!) and all things good and growing. G is also for Germany, the birthplace of Trippen’s Fountain:
Let your cutting-edge style bust out like leaves in spring when you lace up this boot! Steal the scene with your green!
B is for blue, which exudes mystery and romance in a heel like Accessoire’s Safari:
What a way to make an entrance! Old Hollywood glamour is alive and sizzling in the Safari!
I is for indigo, the inky rich hue that’s almost black but not quite and much more interesting. Exhibit A (or should we say I): the Trippen Aloe.
See what we mean? What a delicious color for a tasty style that easily transitions from spring to summer to fall!
V is for violet, a color that always inspires oohs and aahs! How lovely it looks on Accessoire’s Sagan:
Tres chic! Buckle up this girly wedge, and feel the love as the compliments cascade over you!
All hail Roy G. Biv! And when you wear any of the above beauties, your feet will feel as good as the gold in the pot at the end of the rainbow!
(Psst, have you checked out this week’s Sweet Treat? It’s Coclico’s knockout Klucia! Simply click “be sweet to your feet” in the upper right corner of any Ped page to arrive at the Klucia with the magic code that brings 20% off at checkout! Set off sparks and break some hearts!)
