Three refreshing words: PED SUMMER SALE!

Friday, June 27th, 2014

Remember how a few months ago we were shivering and longing for leafy trees and green grass? Well, happily, we got our wish, but now we’re drenched with the sweat that comes along with summer greenery. Oh, for a little sweet relief!

Although we Pedsters can’t make the mercury fall or dehumidify the air, we can ice the prices on those summer shoes you’ve been eying since April. In fact, we’re dropping ‘em like they’re hot!

Here are just a few of the refreshing deals:

One of the prettiest sandals to walk into the Ped warehouse this season is Chie MIhara’s Izan:

The ruffles are girly without being twee, and the neutral camel color allows this sweetheart to work with everything in your wardrobe. Lovely at $358, the Izan is gorgeous at $179!

Another feminine neutral that turns heads is the Cydwoq Market:

A sophisticate with a dash of panache, the Market is an all-occasion shoe that strolls comfortably through a day of work before dancing out the door for a night on the town! Impressive at $322, it’s a chic treat at $248!

Cydwoq uses the same petal-like knot closure on the easy-going Bobcat sandal:

A new design from Cydwoq, the black nubuck Bobcat is sweet yet tough (just like us). The cupped back securely holds your heel, making this an ideal summer travel shoe since you can sightsee all day and still look well-dressed for dinner. Purr-fect at $248, the Bobcat is the cat’s meow at $198!

If you prefer an open back, the Cydwoq Spear is also ready to walk anywhere you want to go:

We love the stand-alone toe ring and the lace-up closing, but we absolutely adore the stellar comfort of the 100% leather construction, which just gets better the more you wear the Spear. Ready for battle at $238, it’s a worthy road warrior at $188!

A sandal that takes lacing to a whole new style level is the fantastic Trippen Folly:

What a hot-crossed air-conditioned cutie! Plus it’s extremely practical since the lacing lets you adjust the Folly to accommodate the width of your foot. Fun at $328, the Folly is a party at $262!

If you like the wrap-around ankle strap but want to stand a little taller, consider the Trippen Ritzy:

Such a knockout! The window within the wooden heel will set tongues talking and hearts breaking! (Although you can never go wrong with black, the Ritzy is also available in an espresso version with blue edges and blue rubber on the outsole. Super cool.) Flirty at $268, the Ritzy is irresistible at $208!

Another beautiful heel that’s a steal is the gleaming Argila Vanessa:

We are gaga over the way Argila contrasts the pinked edges of the platinum leather with the smooth curves of the platinum-piped brown leather! Luminous at $428, the Vanessa sparkles at $214!

“All very nice,” you may be thinking, “but I’m a boot gal! What about a refreshing F+B boot deal?” Your wish is our command with the glorious Fiorentini + Baker Pansy:

Fantastic with floaty sundresses, the Pansy will walk you all the way through summer and right into fall! In addition to grey, the Pansy also comes in brown. Delicious at $438, the Pansy is a feast for your feet at $219! (Bet that puts a smile on your face!)

And that’s just the chillin’ tip of the sale iceberg,  so cruise over to Ped’s main site and take a dip in the cool prices! Suddenly summer got much more pleasant!

(Also, don’t miss this week’s Sweet Treat, the terrific Trippen Tough! Click “be sweet to your feet” at the bottom of the box on the left of most Ped pages to land at the Tough with the “Sweet Treat” designation. Then add it to your bag to get an automatic 20% off at checkout!)

 

Take a walk in the woods!

Sunday, April 27th, 2014

Ped fans, did you celebrate Earth Day this past week? We’re all “tree huggers” at Ped, so we certainly did! Ped is proud to sell only goods from companies committed to ethical production, both environmentally and socially.

You can rest assured that the woods used for the soles of our many gorgeous clog styles are selected and harvested from sustainable sources. The result? Beautifully grained styles that you can feel good about wearing!

We love the lightness of wood for summer, and the cool smoothness of its sanded surface against bare soles feels soooooo good! Here are a few of our woody favorites:

Coclico is here to set straight the myth that clogs lack sex appeal. Fact: there is no hotter tamale than the Coclico Fabiana!

Whew, somebody hand me a fan! If you want to make ‘em sweat, the Fabiana is a sure-fire way to do it, standing on a take-notice 3.5″ sculpted wooden heel (made easy to wear by the .5″ platform under the toe). Deadly sexy!

Another wood-soled sandal that’s a guaranteed to turn heads is Trippen’s Mikli:

The Mikli is the tallest heel in the Ped house at 4.5″, but because its supportive wedge platform slopes to a 1.25″ platform under the toe, it’s easy on your tootsies! We’re crazy about the combination of the saucy ankle strap and the figure-8 construction of the toe strap.

Trippen also makes gorgeous use of a criss-cross ankle strap on the Ritzy, which has the coolest wooden sole under the sun!

The way the back strap loops through the window under your heel proves why Trippen wins prize after prize for its designs! So fun! The Ritzy also comes in black, but we especially like how the blue rubber outsole of the espresso version matches the blue underside of the twice-dyed leather!

If you’re looking for a more traditional clog, Fiorentini + Baker’s Lamu may just have your name on it:

Ped fans know how I heart all things green, so this clog caught my eye right away, and the flirty star-shaped cutout sealed the deal! (If green isn’t your scene, we also have the Lamu in a rich copper brown.)

Bringing things closer to the ground, Cydwoq also offers a sweet closed-toe slide. Feast your eyes on the Cydwoq East:

It’s a woven-leather wonder that stands on a perfectly placed 1″ sculpted wooden heel. The berry color pictured is absolutely luscious, but the East also comes in a neutral slate that will work with everything in your closet.

Once the mercury starts to climb, though, we want to get strap-happy and give the dogs some air! One of the best wood-soled ways is the classic Cydwoq Rebel:

The Rebel was one of Cydwoq’s original designs! Its wooden sole is perfectly contoured to follow your foot, and all those straps  are a single masterfully cut piece of leather! (Don’t care for the dark graphite color? You can still rock the Rebel in a brown crackle-textured version!)

Of course, for sheer summer simplicity, the lean and clean wooden goodness of the Trippen Zen is the answer:

No words are needed. The Zen is perfection. (By the way, this perfection is also available in an ideal red.)

Aren’t these woods good? And there are even more ways to gain the grain at Ped’s main site! So take a walk in the woods, and embrace your natural style!

Wooden you like a sandal clog?

Saturday, May 22nd, 2010

Some of you Ped fans have let us know how much you adore clogs! It’s true there’s nothing like the feeling of wood beneath your feet—so solid yet comforting. But we wouldn’t be Ped if we simply offered run-of-the-mill clogs, especially when we know your toes want to be free to enjoy the summer! So, we combed our sources to find a few especially beautiful wood-bottomed sandals that will speak to your stylish souls as well as your soles.

Although we hate to play favorites (we truly love all our shoes), Trippen’s Ritzy is the stand-out style of the season:

It is just IT! Starting with the fabulous way the supple black leather crisscrosses and wraps around your ankle and ending with how the wooden sole gives you a window on the world beneath your heel, the Ritzy is like no other sandal out there. Fun, edgy, and sexy!

Another clog sandal with head-turning power is Giraudon’s Riley:

The lines of this airy peep-toe are so interesting, and we love how the ankle lacing gives the subtle suggestion of an ankle boot. Absolutely of the moment! (And the gold lining is so fun!)

But maybe what you like in a clog is the ability to just slip it on and go, in which case Trippen has your number with the Zen:

Nothing could be simpler to wear, yet the Zen still has enough ‘zazz to make any outfit juicy! After all, who doesn’t love a red sandal?

Another easy-to-wear style with a sole of hand-sculpted wood is the Cydwoq Revolt, a perennial Ped favorite:

Cute and practical, this sandal makes a great traveling companion (slide off, slide on when navigating airport security). And because it’s from Cydwoq, you know the Revolt’s leather will comply with the shape of your individual foot for a custom fit.

So, clog lovers, choose whichever wood-soled siren sings your name, and take a solid step into summer!

(Psst, just fyi, this week’s “sweet treat,” Cydwoq’s Proud, will only be especially sweet for a couple more days, so click “be sweet to your feet” in the upper right corner for 20% off while you still can.)
