Choose the blues!

Sunday, October 14th, 2012

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 BLUESDefinitely 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?

Trippen is what’s happening!

Monday, September 24th, 2012

Every season we go on and on about what geniuses the German designers at Trippen are, how amazing their leathers and craftsmanship are, and how they’ve really outdone themselves with the latest styles! But honestly, Ped fans, every season it’s TRUE!

This fall is no exception. When the latest Trippen boxes arrived at the Ped warehouse, every boot and shoe we unpacked had us shouting, “WOW!” Think we’re exaggerating? Please see for yourself:

Just when all the beautiful boots out there start to blur together, along comes Trippen to open our eyes to things utterly new and different! Consider the Wind:

WOW! Too cool for school (but feel free to wear them there anyway), this mid-calf boot’s blue-edged seams vine around the shaft, while a zipper zings up the back!

Like the seams but looking for something lower to the ground? Here’s a tasty temptation: the Trippen Oven:

WOW! Longtime Ped fans know if there’s one way to turn my head, it’s with a great green shoe! And the Oven keeps it turned with its seaming and saucy lace-up back!

Trippen also uses back lacing to fabulous effect in the new California boot:

WOW! Be still our fringe-loving hearts! What a Bohemian beauty! The way the natural edges contrast with the petrol-colored leather is spectacular!

Prefer your lacing up front? Trippen’s got your number in the sizzling Corset:

WOW! The structural design of this boot is stunning—vertical seams create a “corset” around your ankle and then flare into a dramatic ruffle around the top. Industrial down below and flirtatious above!

Taking the ankle boot in a completely different and pared-down direction, Trippen dishes up the Diesel:

WOW! We heart this little boot so much it leaves us breathless! The dual zipper is fun and clever, and the curry-colored leather is lip-smackingly delicious. (Plus, if you forget to pack your clutch, it can do double duty…)

If you’re charmed by the Diesel’s zippy zipper design but wish it were on a taller boot, Trippen grants your wish with the Super:

WOW! Versatile and comfortable yet with super-sized style, the Super is definitely a contender for the title of Must-Have Boot of the Season!

Trippen hasn’t forgotten those of you who like to step out the door with flash and panache! Brace yourselves:

WOW! Futuristic, industrial, and as chic as the day is long, Trippen’s Brace is the boot for making maximal impact! Shine on, sisters!

And those are just the tip of the eye-opening Trippen iceberg that’s definitely keeping things cooler than cool at Ped HQ! Lots more Trippen styles await your ogling over at Ped’s main site, so go get an eyeful!
