Outfits in cahoots with the boots

Friday, September 19th, 2014

Ped fans, we know how it is. Sometimes a style will catch your eye, but you can’t quite envision how it would work with your daily wardrobe. Maybe you think gold is strictly for after-five, or those edgy zippered boots seem too out there for running errands. Or maybe you want to snazz up what you wear, but you’re not sure where to start.

We’re here to help! Below are a few ideas for how to make the most of some of our best autumn boots.

Whether you’re walking the dog, meeting friends for a casual lunch, going to a parent-teacher meeting, or doing all three in the same day, Trippen’s Onion Boot makes a great companion:

Walk in the park

The Onion is sassy with this laid-back outfit, but it works equally well with the following throw-it-on-and-go look, which we’ve paired with another zipper-iffic Trippen boot, the Helix:

Studious but fun

As we often say, the shoes don’t have to match the outfit, they just have to “go.” We love the interplay of textures and patterns among the sweater, skirt, and Sophie Digard Puzzle Scarf, and the Helix fits right in, even though it’s brown!

If you want to play up its edginess, though, the Helix would work well with this arty casual outfit we put together with the Trippen Amber:

The art of casual

 

We’ve added the Sophie Digard Dream Scarf to this look that’s perfect for weekend gallery hopping.

The Amber is such a comfortable way to make a statement that it would also sing with the following outfit, ideal for college students and profs, graphic designers, architects, or anyone else who likes to get creative with what they wear! We’ve pulled out the stops by suggesting either the Trippen Foam or Cydwoq Pitstop as boot options!

Cutting edge and cute
We love the mix of round and angled shapes, so we tossed in the Sophie Digard Manouche Scarf for good measure!

Are we getting too edgy for your taste? Well, you might be surprised to discover both the Trippen Foam and Cydwoq Pitstop also work with this more subdued (but still fun) outfit, which we’ve put with the Argila Katniss:

Saturday afternoon at the museum
We are crazy about the deep green Katniss with this skirt, and the red Cydwoq Bright Bag keeps things lively!

But what if you have a job that requires something dressier, you ask? Well, the Katniss would be equally at home with the following look, guaranteed to wow clients, which we’ve enhanced with Chie Mihara’s stunning Dalatchi:

Wow the clients!

How cool does the wool-and-leather woven shaft of the Dalatchi look with that skirt? Of course, Cydwoq’s Bright Bag in black is welcome at any meeting!

The Chie Mihara Dalatchi and Cydwoq Bright Bag would also be sensational with the following ensemble, which epitomizes how you don’t need a lot of bells and whistless to look impeccably chic! Ideal for going straight from the office out for cocktails and dinner, this outfit is the perfect setting for Cydwoq’s Involve ankle boot:

The Simple Sophisticate

Is your imagination sparked? We hope so! There are so many terrific ways to wear Ped’s styles!

Incidentally, all of the outfits above were created using Polyvore, which is a great way to try out wardrobe ideas without having to try everything on.

The rule to remember: Always have fun with how you dress!

(Psst, this week’s Sweet Treat is Coclico’s beautiful Valentine bootie, which would look fab with every single outfit in this post! To receive 20% off the Valentine, simply click “be sweet to your feet” at the bottom of the box on the left of most Ped pages. When you land at the Valentine with the Sweet Treat designation, choose your size, add it to your bag, and the discount will occur automatically at checkout.)

Keep it short and sweet, Part 2

Friday, September 5th, 2014

Ped fans, in Part 1, we took a tour through the beautiful flatlands of this season’s ankle boots. (And word to the wise: many more flat-soled booties have since arrived from Trippen, Argila, Cliff Dweller, and Cydwoq! So much to love!)

Today, we’re gaining a little altitude by surveying our favorite heeled bootie designs. So step up and take a look!

When it comes to hella-beautiful heels, Chie Mihara is the reigning queen! She’s solved the difficult equation of how to elevate height and style without lowering comfort. Exhibit A: Chie’s new Carta.

The deep blue “Shantung” leather is as lovely as a midnight sky, and the black leather forming the knot over the toe and wrapping around the 3.5″ heel provides the perfect complement.

Another Chie Mihara beauty that will make you swoon and sigh is the stunning Dalatchi:

The shaft of this low boot is a jaw-dropping weave of wool and leather! We adore the contrast in textures between the shaft, the matte black leather upper, and the sculpted wooden heel and sole.

Argila also woos us with a wooden heel on its new Katniss ankle boot:

The sculpted 2.75″ heel works so beautifully with the streamlined curves of the leather upper on this sexy, sexy boot! Plus, Argila’s brass hardware on the twin zipperss (both inside and outside the shaft) is drop-dead gorgeous!

Like a boot with a few buckles? Argila has something drool-worthy for you, too! Check out the hellaciously great Harriet:

Truly, this is the boot that made everyone at Ped HQ ooh and aah when it came out of the box! From the trio of buckles, to the saucy zipper up the back, to the softly folded leather ruffle spilling out of the top, the Harriet is one hot tamale!

As long as we’re talking about booties with back zippers, let’s wax rhapsodic for moment about the Coclico Valentine:

What a knockout red boot–and it’s not so red that you can’t wear it every day! We especially like how the shaft dips down just slightly in back, making this bootie a good bet for all calves, from curvy to willowy!

Taking things even lower on the ankle is Coclico’s new Nanette, another big favorite this fall:

There’s something about the simple leather tie and slot over the interior tongue that sends this wood-heeled design into the stratosphere of style! And the brick color is versatile yet unusual.

Trippen offers a different take on a laced ankle boot with the easy-going but oh-so chic Facile:

The pearlescent brown leather is first tumbled for softness and then coated with a thin silver wax to give it a lustrous sheen. Plus, the Facile‘s 2.25″ rubber wedge sole lets you add height while remaining grounded.

Fine, fine, fine, all beautiful, but what if you want a bootie that’s an after-five showstopper? Presented for your approval, the Cydwoq Crater:

This femme fatale seduces with black matte leather and leather embossed to look like  lace! And if that’s not flirty enough, Cydwoq closes up the design with two back buttons that reveal just a hint of flesh in between the tabs.

Of course, if you really want to razzle dazzle ‘em, zip in and zip up Cydwoq’s Hexagon:

A showboat of a shoe boot! You will definitely be the badass belle of the ball in this chic and edgy beauty! The woven antiqued silver leather will make everyone swoon, but the stable 2″ resin heel ensures you’ll be the last one standing!

We could go on and on because there are still so many beautiful booties to see, but we’ll leave you to explore them on your own at Ped’s main site! When it comes to boots this season, sweet and low is the way to go!

(In keeping with all the low-boot love we’re spreading, this week’s Sweet Treat is Fiorentini + Baker’s fab Elios bootie! Get 20% off by clicking “be sweet to your feet” at the bottom of the box on the left of most Ped pages, which whisks you to the Elios with the special “Sweet Treat” designation.

Half Time!

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014

Just like at many sports events, half time at Ped offers the chance to get up and stretch your legs–in new shoes! We’re midway through our summer sale, and many of the best styles of the season are now half-price. So it’s a great time to snag that pair you’ve been hoping to score!

One design we’ve adored from the first time we saw it (and tried it on!) is Argila’s Marisol:

So much to drool over here, from the Marisol‘s pinked edges to its of-the-moment use of metallic leather to the innovative internal heel support! Crush-worthy at $428, it’s true love at $214!

Another noteworthy metallic sandal is the Trippen Eye:

Easy to wear and super sexy, the Eye‘s innovative lacing that threads behind your heel and entwines your ankle will have all eyes on you! Eye-catching at $328, it’s a total looker at $149. (You’re correct–that is more than half off! Lucky you!)

Cydwoq also combines an ankle strap with a gorgeous metallic leather in its stellar Laser sandal:

Simple but sooooo dazzling! This versatile style, which easily goes from a picnic in the park to rooftop cocktails, was sweet at $254 but is decadently delicious at $127!

If black is your go-to year-in an year-out, the Coclico Tyrion offers similar quick-change charms:

Ri-di-culously sexy on, this badass style contrasts supple leather with a natural wood heel! Tempting at $392, it’s irresistible at $196.

Trippen also takes natural wood and sculpts it into a smooth full-sole experience in the Zen sandal clog:

So much more beautiful and comfortable than clunky clogs of the past, the Zen (which also comes in red) was a jewel at $248, but it’s a diamond at $129!

Some sandals are just for summer, but others are up for going to a party any time of year, like Chie Mihara’s Amor:

Suede and leather bloom in union! The Amor was a flirt at $412, but it’s a total knockout at $206!

Speaking of shoes that span the seasons, the Cliff Dweller Canoe readily paddles from summer right into fall:

The ideal weekend shoe, this classic style gets jazzed up with hatched embossing on the luxe Italian leather (which also comes in green). Worth every cent at $268, it’s a precious commodity at $134!

But the best shoe for walking from summer into fall is hands-down (feet down?) Pep Monjo’s fantastic Marcella oxford:

This winner’s a touchdown, TKO, century, slam dunk, and home run all rolled into one! Fantastic at $392, it’s every superlative under the sun at $196! (Seriously, catch it if you can!)

There are even more ways to play in Ped’s sale section, so get in the game! You’ll make points with your bank account and walk away a champion of style!

Trip the light fantastic in Trippen all-time favorites!

Friday, July 11th, 2014

Ped fans, every season Trippen comes up with new styles that wow our eyes and thrill our feet–we never know what those German geniuses will dream up next! At the same time, Trippen’s best designs remain fresh! Their looks are ever-edgy and fun, while their comfort is timeless.

We get boatloads of requests for these favorites, so we decided to celebrate mid-summer by bringing you Trippen “greatest hits”! Get ready to clap your hands and dance out the door!

When we first introduced the Trippen Fence a few years ago, we could not keep it in stock to save our lives:

Every time we’d get a new shipment, these beauties would practically fly out the door! And with good reason because they’re sliced to edgy perfection in front, while the lacing in the back gives the people behind you something to ooh and aah over! The black version is classic, but the Fence also shines in a metallic steel.

Trippen also uses its slicing technique to stellar effect in the Good:

This super-comfortable wedge is light years beyond your average Mary Jane! Plus it’s constructed from our all-time favorite “Black Ice” waxed leather. So. Very. Good!

Speaking of artistic variations on the classic Mary Jane, the Trippen Gotan is another greatest hit that’s back in the Ped house:

The off-kilter angles and exposed seams, make this shoe something to see! Get ready to launch a thousand conversations every time you step out the door!

Exposed seams are one of the signature details of many Trippen styles, but we especially love their blooming beauty on the Poppy (and the Magnolia and the Peony):

The Notte Plum version of the Poppy has proven a winner this season, so we decided to also bring it back in the wonderful Spring Green shown! Both colors are so juicy that we wish you luck in choosing between them. (You could always get both…)

Another much-loved style built on Trippen’s classic rubber outsole is the lace-a-licious Burst:

Trippen took equal parts oxford, sandal, and bootie, worked its design magic, and came up with the eye-popping and oh-so comfortable Burst! Walking the cutting edge has never been so easy!

Of course, the Burst’s lace-up goodness looks almost tame next to the wild child known as the Trippen Pull:

Fun to see and even more fun to wear, the Pull feels like a deliciously soft leather glove on your foot, while the featherweight “cups” rubber outsole keeps your steps nimble! (We adore this pine green version, but we also have the Pull in black.)

Trippen’s “cups” construction also supports the latest style to achieve Trippen all-star status: the Sleek.

Ped fans who didn’t blink might recall that we first offered this sweet style in a sunny yellow in early spring (and yes, that color is back!). But it rocketed out the door so fast it made our heads spin. So when we reordered the Sleek, we decided to also offer it in this gorgeous copper, which is ready to salsa to the end of summer and bossa nova into fall!

Tried-and-true styles are guaranteed to make your feet happy puppies during the dog days of summer ahead, so why not traipse through the rest of the season in a Trippen all-time favorite?

(And don’t forget this week’s Sweet Treat is another Trippen classic, the ever-popular Trippen Vivienne. Simply click “be sweet to your feet” at the bottom of the box on the left of most Ped pages to land at the Vivienne with the “Sweet Treat” designation. Pick your size, add it to your bag, and—voila!—receive an automatic 20% off at checkout!)
