Precious metals

Sunday, March 30th, 2014

Shimmer, shine, gleam, and glimmer! Ped fans, one of the zingiest trends right now is metallic leather!

Once relegated to after-5 formality, metallics now come out to play in daytime designs that radiate like the sun! This season, Ped has all kinds of ways to make your toes twinkle, so let’s take a look! (You might want to get out your sunglasses.)

Longtime Ped fans know how much I adore my golden Cydwoq Tomcat sandals, so imagine my excitement over Cydwoq’s gleaming new Minimalist:

This lightweight and fluid flat gives a whole new meaning to the term “quick silver.” As lovely as a summer day is long, the Minimalist lets you dash from here to there like Mercury!

On a darker but no less beautiful note, the Trippen Venus is another luminous flat:

The saucy ankle strap adds sex appeal to the Venus‘s walk-anywhere-and-everywhere practicality. This copper cutie is like a lucky penny!

For its part, Argila performs style alchemy by mixing metallics with other leathers this season. The Marisol is one of the glowing results:

The brass buckle adds extra shine to the black and silver party! This sandal also has a hidden secret: an internal wedge at the heel that keeps your foot feeling effervescent in this flat!

Argila designer Pep Monjo conjures similar magic in his eponymous line. Sigh with us over the gorgeousness of Pep Monjo’s Daniella:

The combo of mocha and platinum leathers is stunning! The Daniella is Laura’s fave this season—but she didn’t act fast enough, and now her size is gone. (Hello, Laura, early bird? Worm? You know how things go at Ped!)

We realize many of you want to add a few inches to your height, in which case, check out the Trippen Tough:

This steely beauty may be named Tough, but its comfort is cushy because it stands on Trippen’s famous t-shaped rubber wedge! The zip up the back? Extra gleaming steam!

Another height-enhancing sparkler is Trippen’s Orinoco:

Wooden soles of wonder! The Orinoco‘s metallic leather is a knockout shade of bronze, and its multi-colored nail heads add the perfect punctuation. Clog me, please!

Argila also offers a heeled sandal to make your style golden. Say hello to the Vanessa:

What a way to bring traffic to a halt! We love the interplay of the pinked edges of the platinum leather and the platinum-piped curves of the brown!

Any of the above styles can easily stroll from an afternoon in the park out for a night on the town. But if you really want to dress things up and bring the house down, then buckle up Chie Mihara’s Noche!

You’ll put a glint in the eye of everyone who sees you! The gold-flecked textured lapis leather contrasts beautifully with the perforated matte red leather rosette on the toe! Glimmering and glam-tastic!

As always, there are more ways to sparkle and shine over at Ped’s main site, so let your shoes be as scintillating as your conversation! It’s a golden age for metallics!

(Psst, in case you missed it below, this week’s Sweet Treat is the Chie Mihara Ruper. Just click “be sweet to your feet” at the bottom of the box on the left at Ped’s main site to arrive at the Ruper with the special designation. Then simply add it to your bag to receive 20% off at checkout.)

Take a shine to summer sandals

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

Free your toes, and the rest will follow! Okay, so that’s not quite how the song goes, but it’s still good advice! After all, it’s sandal season!

We love spending sunny days almost barefoot in a great pair of run-around flats! This year many of them offer a little extra something in the way of metallics, ranging from subtle shimmers to out-and-out, razzle-dazzle shines. Here are a few ways to make your tootsies sparkle.

Fact: Cydwoq makes THE BEST sandals! As evidence, we present Exhibit A: Cydwoq’s Form:

Ped fans know about my fondness for all things green, but Cydwoq takes it to the next level by adding a little metallic shimmer! Oh my! The Form‘s straps wow with their artistic cut. And how about that sweet circular buckle? So much to love!

Another sandal that benefits from a pearly polish is the Cydwoq Naked:

Blue is the color of the moment, and it looks especially beautiful glimmering like a moonlit sky. Looking for something more neutral? We also have the Naked in pewter.

For those of you who appreciate a slide, Cydwoq also gives the pearl treatment to the Samba:

Simple and pretty, just the way we like it, with the warm burnish of a well-worn penny!

Another understated way to add some metal to your mettle is with Cydwoq’s wonderful Thong:

There are two reasons why this classic Cydwoq design remains popular year after year: 1) its incomparable comfort and 2) its ever-modern style! The silver sparkle makes the Thong shine in a sea of black sandals.

Maybe you’re someone who likes to amp up the dazzle, in which case, Cydwoq’s Tomcat will put a twinkle in your eye (as it did in mine):

The antiqued silver and gold leather is stunning, and yet for being so eye-catching, these sandals are go-everywhere wearable! I wore mine all over Barcelona, for instance—here’s proof:

My Tomcats look pretty sassy on this Gaudi-esque bench!

But let’s get a little shinier, shall we? Everyone at Ped HQ is over the moon for Cydwoq’s new Admit:

Such a great sandal! The leather looks like it was worked in a silversmith’s shop! Gorgeous in every way!

Finally, for all-out gleam, the Trippen Careless takes the prize:

Sure, the Careless is shiny and bold, but its leather is also unbelievably soft! This sandal feels so good against your skin and under your sole, and it provides fantastic support for walking wherever the map takes you!

Slip on any of these breezy sandals, and  your feet will instantly be as dazzling as the sun on a cloudless summer day! Let your toes out to shine!

(Psst, have you oohed and aahed over this week’s Sweet Treat? It’s worthy—Vialias’ saucy Sara! Click “be sweet to your feet” in the upper right corner of any Ped page to arrive at the Sara with the magic code that will bring 20% off at checkout!)
