Sizzling? Sale sandals are so refreshing!

Saturday, July 6th, 2013

Holy jalapeño peppers, Ped fans, it is hot outside! When the temperature goes up and the sun beats down, we like to be as bare as possible, so a great pair of sandals is de rigueur! Happily, Ped has a summer’s worth of bodacious sandals now on sale! (Good timing!)

Here are just a few ways to give your toes some sweet relief!

One of the prettiest strappy flats this season comes from Chie Mihara. The world is your oyster when you buckle up the Gipsy:

The cobalt blue suede is so romantic, but the nearly flat outsole (a sweet .5″ wedge) and comfortable insole mean you can be all business if you’ve got a thousand things on your errand list. Dash from here to there, looking pretty as you please, and then out for a mission-accomplished cocktail! Once $358, the Gipsy is now a cool $179!

Like blue suede but hoping to add a few inches to your height? Then perhaps the Coclico Mori has your name on it:

 

Instantly, you’ll be stunning and statuesque! Even better, the Mori’s cork platform wedge is light and comfy, perfect for everything from shopping at the farmer’s market to going to an outdoor concert. Once $358, it’s now a breezy $279.

Blue is cool this season, but red is also red hot! When you want to go bold, there’s no better way than to tie up the Cliff Dweller Emma:

 

So sexy in a tom-boyish way! Looking for the perfect travel sandal? The Emma is ready to go, go, go! Once $198, this beauty is now a refreshing $158!

Maybe you’re ripe for red but hoping for something barely there, in which case the Cydwoq Naked is playing your song:

 

If summer were a sandal, it would probably look like this! The Naked is a perennial Ped favorite—perfect in every way! Once $236, it’s now a delightful $188.

Of course, a simple brown sandal is welcome everywhere it goes! One of our favorites this season is the Cydwoq Cedar:

 

Absolutely timeless, the Cedar is forever modern. When you want one sandal to carry you through every warm day this year and for years to come, the Cedar is at your service! Once $254, it’s now a bracing $127!

Yes, heel lovers, we have a neutral classic to make you happy, too: Pep Monjo’s Brigitta.

 

One of our most popular sandals this season (everything Pep Monjo flies out the door), we have just a couple sizes left in this gorgeous olivine or everybody’s go-to color, black. So act fast! Once $348, it’s now a sweet $278.

Want to pull out all the stops and go high and bold? Then Fiorentini + Baker has just the thing, and its name is Dina:

 

Be prepared to stop traffic everywhere you walk! We love this sassy sandal in the burgundy suede pictured, but it also comes in beautiful mustard-colored leather. Once $412, it’s now a delicious $199!

Of course, if you want to go slam-bam glamorous in a sandal that will turn every head at the party, then the Cydwoq Boomerang is the ticket:

With its flirty design and multi-colored marbled leather, the Boomerang brings the “wow” whenever you wear it! BOOM! Once $304, this knockout is now a nice icy $239.

Still more open and airy delights await your discovery at Ped’s main site, and we’ve discounted many for your summer pleasure! It’s the perfect time to show some skin and let your tootsies taste the breeze!

(Speaking of sensational sandals, the Trippen Arch is the Sweet Treat for a few more days! You have until Tuesday to click “be sweet to your feet” in the upper right corner of any Ped page to be whisked to the Arch’s page, where the magic code will bring 20% off at checkout!)

Sweet suedes!

Sunday, April 21st, 2013

Ped fans, suede is everywhere this season! It looks fantastic and feels sumptuously soft, but how much do you really know about suede?

Here’s a quick lesson. The word “suede” comes from the French “gants de suede,” meaning “gloves of Sweden,” a term first used in the mid-19th century. Tanners create suede by sanding the underside of leather to yield a soft nap. Ever wondered what the difference between suede and nubuck is? Well, nubuck results from sanding the exterior of a hide. Both suede and nubuck feel wonderful, but nubuck is less supple and a little more rough-and-tumble.

We adore suede not only for its tactile quality, but also for how it enriches color! This spring and summer, Ped has suede styles galore in glorious shades perfect for soaking up the sun. Take a look!

Accessoire is a virtuoso when it comes to color-saturated suede—it’s what they do best! Bask in the beauty of the Accessoire Bahia:

 

Accessoire calls this color “papaya,” and it certainly is juicy! What an easy way to make a sundress even sunnier!

One of Accessoire’s many charms is their ability to give their designs an aura of vintage romance, as they do with the Alabama:

This lovely sandal looks like something Lana Turner would have worn in 1940s Hollywood. Glam meets chic in Accessoire’s combination of butterfly-printed leather and coral-pink suede!

Another feminine sandal in a beautiful shade of suede is Chie Mihara’s Gipsy:

Could that cobalt blue be any more luminous? We also love the way Chie contrasts the airy straps up front with the enclosed heel in back. Now that’s a phat flat!

Looking for something less girly? Another down-to-earth sandal made in suede is Pep Monjo’s Angelina:

The grey suede complements the urban edge of this style, and since grey is a neutral, it works with all your favorite warm-weather clothes.

Fiorentini + Baker takes suede higher and in a retro direction with its 1970s-inspired Dina sandal:

Holy hotness! The burgundy suede straps make a bold statement, while the cork sole adds inches in a light and comfortable way! (FYI, we also have the Dina in mustard leather.)

This fantastic sole also adds ‘zazz to F+B’s Ding clog, back at Ped by popular demand:

Suede that swings! The fringe has our hearts, but the teal color is what really sends us over the moon! (But if you prefer black, we’ve got your back.)

Wishing for a lace-up shoe? This season we’re offering Fiorentini + Baker’s beloved Eliza oxford in several shades of suede, including sienna:

In a word: YUM! This suede shoe exemplifies why Italian shoes are prized; it’s so well made and comfortable it will be your best friend for years. Be sure to check out the teal and verde versions, too!

Vialis’ sweet suede lace-up mixes the best of a sneaker with the lightness of a dance shoe. Behold the wonderful Pepita:

Simple and easy to wear, the Pepita is made for dashing around town followed by kicking back on the porch! The midnight blue color is so pretty, but you can also opt for the Pepita in spicy mustard.

Finally, if you’re like us and love the look of boots with summery skirts and dresses, check out the Fiorentini + Baker Emil:

At last, an “air-conditioned” boot—perfect for wearing barefoot and showing off bare legs! (Of course, it will also look great with tights and funky kneehighs when the weather cools off.)

Even more suede sweethearts are waiting for you at Ped’s main site! Discover why we’re soft on suede, especially in the summertime!

(Speaking of suede, there are two suede versions—as well as two leather versions—of this week’s super-duper tasty Sweet Treat: Fiorentini + Baker’s Emmy Boot! Did we just give you a heart attack? Simply click “be sweet to your feet” in the upper right corner of any Ped page to land at the Emmy, where you’ll find the magic code that will bring a sweet 20% off at checkout!)

 

Chie Mihara charm school

Monday, March 18th, 2013

There was a time last century when fashionable young ladies regularly enrolled in charm schools to polish their manners and feminine style. Lessons included walking in heels while balancing a book on one’s head to improve posture. Fun (not).

Fortunately, today we women determine our own style and are more concerned with balancing the books of our companies than balancing books on our heads. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up girliness if that’s what your heart desires. Chie Mihara is here to school you, and every one of her shoes provides a lesson in the three F’s: femininity, functionality, and fun!

Slip on a pair of Chie Mihara shoes, and you’ll instantly become a Chie charm school graduate! Here are a few of the colorful courses she’s offering this spring at Ped:

When it comes to charm, nothing’s more charming than a classic mary jane. Chie Mihara gives the m.j. a modern spin with the new Onna:

You have to love how Chie takes a neutral—the Onna‘s sesame body and platinum trim work with everything—and makes it anything but middle-of-the-road! Dig the wooden heel!

Another “lady” shoe that gets the Chie Mihara treatment this season is the timeless spectator pump. Behold the fantastic Zelia:

Everything from the stacked heel to the leather’s perforated edges to the ridged rubber outsole is so well thought out! And the cream and tomato red color combo is to die for!

Red also amps up the charm of Chie Mihara’s Joelia heeled sandal:

 

The playful houndstooth-patterned leather and the oversized patent rose on the toe offer a wink and a nudge to more conservative styles in a way that’s sexy, artistic, and wearable!

Want even more whimsy? Then consider lacing up the new Chie Mihara Bandera:

 

Ped fans know a beautiful green shoe always makes me sit up and take notice! Needless to say, the Bandera has my full attention. A checkerboard heel? Chie at her very best!

Love oxfords but prefer yours with a lower heel (but no less style)? Then feast your eyes on the spectacular Chie Mihara Isias:

How cool is that color combo? Everyone at Ped HQ is crazy about the braided-leather detail that Chie introduced this winter, and wow, does it ever look fantastic on the Isias for spring! (If rosy colors are not your thing, you might prefer the black, cream, tan, and gold version.)

“Fine,” you may say, “but what I really dream of is an oxford that’s more open-air.” Well, Chie fulfills your wish with the fresh-as-can-be Ingra:

Wearing this breezy lace-up is guaranteed to lift your spirits—and brighten the day of everyone who sees you! Imagine how cute the Ingra would look with a pair of skinny ankle-length pants!

To give your winter-weary feet a true taste of the sun, though, we suggest you buckle up the Chie Mihara Present:

Talk about charming! The stylized black leather bow on the cream toe band makes the understated Present the valedictorian of Chie Mihara’s charm school!

Even more lucky charms from Chie Mihara are waiting at Ped’s main site, so click over and go girly this spring and summer!

Party on!

Monday, November 26th, 2012

We hope all Ped fans in the U.S. enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving last week, and our Canadian friends, last month! We at Ped are truly grateful you’re out there!

Since our fridges are now stocked with turkey leftovers (the pumpkin pie is already devoured), it can only signal one thing: the holiday parties have started! Which means we all face the annual dilemma of what to wear to sparkle and shine? Ped is here to help with shoes that will have you looking stellar and feeling like a million bucks through hours of cocktail-fueled mingling! Just add your favorite LBD, and you’re all set to dazzle!

When you want to amp up your feminine charms, Chie Mihara is always your best friend. One of the prettiest party-ready shoes this season is her Insomnia:

So romantic, the lovely application of rhinestones calls to mind the gorgeous beaded dresses worn by flappers in Paris in the 1920s! And the 2.5″ heel will keep your dogs from howling even if the celebration lasts until sunrise!

The truly amazing thing about Chie’s designs is that no matter how high the heel, they remain comfortable! Case in point, the fun and flashy Uja:

Sure, the heel is a statuesque 3.75″, but both the 1″ platform up front and Chie’s anatomically designed footbed make the Uja a breeze to wear! With its retro styling and red faux-croc embossed leather, this shoe is a party all on its own—what a way to sass up a cocktail dress!

Feel like going arty to the party? Consider letting your funky light shine in the Trippen Leaf:

Glittery, bold, and sexy, this decidedly Euro-chic wedge will have all eyes on you wherever you go! And wherever you go, you’ll be comfortable, thanks to Trippen’s t-shaped rubber wedge sole.

Speaking of attention magnets, check out Cydwoq’s new Science:

The buckles take this strappy shoe from Cydwoq to a whole new level! Gorgeous and incredibly sexy—the heat of the Science may cause you to be declared a fire hazard! (Worth it!)

Looking for something in a bootie to spice up the festivities? How about setting off some sparks with the Cydwoq Seek?

 

The antiqued wine-colored leather has a lovely sheen and black undertones that look luscious with evening wear! Plus, the zipper up the back is so saucy!

Another Cydwoq ankle boot that’s ideal for tripping the light fantastic is the elegant Elevate:

Talk about a femme fatale—Cydwoq’s fluid combination of patterned and matte leathers is sure to generate a lot of oohs and aahs as you mix and mingle!

Ready to go all in for all-out glam and romance this holiday season? Then step out in the Cydwoq Rescue boot:

Cydwoq takes its spectacular burnt-out paisley pony leather, used so effectively in the Elevate, to even greater lengths in this knockout. The Rescue  is sexiness x 2 with its lace-up front and zip-up back! (Once you get the lacing the way you like it, you need only use the zipper to get in and out of this beauty.)

If your social calendar calls for something else, there are even more head-turning styles to help you kick up your heels over at Ped’s main site! Here’s to dressing up and enjoying the Holidays in high (heeled) spirits!

(This week’s Sweet Treat would also make a funky addition to any party: the rockin’ cool Trippen Wicked Put on your red boots and dance for 20% off by clicking “be sweet to your feet” on any Ped page, which will whisk you to the Wicked with the code that will bring 20% off at checkout!)

Let us per-suede you!

Monday, November 19th, 2012

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!)
