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!)

Sunny fun for summer days (and the rest of the year, too)!

Enclose the toes!

Monday, June 9th, 2014

For many Ped fans, summer means one thing: sandals, sandals, and more sandals! But we realize that’s not the case for all of you. For instance, the forecast for the next week at Ped HQ is calling for temps in the high 60s and low 70s. And at Lake Tahoe, where we spend many weekends, the mercury often dips down into the 30s at night! A wee bit frosty for bare toes!

Also, some of you prefer to wear shoes no matter what the weather! So although we waxed rhapsodic about sandals recently, today we’re going to sing the praises of summer shoes! Let’s walk through a few:

Just because your toes are relaxing inside doesn’t mean you can’t give them an air-conditioned ride, as demonstrated by the Trippen Chill:

This black-and-white charmer has our name all over it, with its twice-dyed leather, exposed seams, and dotty cutouts! The Chill is the perfect way to chill.

The Cydwoq Speed also makes good use of exposed seams and breezy cutouts, but whereas the Chill features circlets and swooping curves, the Speed wows with squares and angles:

Quintessentially Cydwoq! The Speed offers great arch support, and its all-leather construction just gets more comfy the more you wear it! And the curry color? De-li-cious!

As long as we’re talking about exposed seams and fun colors, let’s turn the conversation to the Trippen Poppy:

Super comfortable and super sassy! The Poppy takes exposed seams one step further, opening them out to form the petals of a stylized flower on the toe! Plus, the plum leather, with its orchid underside, is the definition of juicy! (Did you know “Radiant Orchid” is the Pantone color of 2014? The Poppy is au courant!)

As Ped fans know, anything green is high on my list, so Trippen’s Mountains tops my shoe loves this season:

The jagged edges of the design are inspired by the lovely ridge line of mountaintops. And the lacing crisscrossing “the valley” keeps everything airy and open during warm weather!

Another stunning Trippen color this season is the cherry red edition of the Vivienne:

The Vivienne is a perennial Ped favorite, and with good reason—it’s as easy to wear as it is fun to see! We especially like how the ankle straps crisscross and slide through a loop in back before closing with an adjustable rivet on the side. (We also have the Vivienne in a spicy mustard!)

The new Cydwoq Poster also features a cute-as-can-be ankle strap:

 

This is Laura’s favorite (and she wears it a lot) because of the riveted snub nose and the printed leather that combines Italian newsprint with graffiti-like elements in reddish pink, blue-grey, and black. Gotta keep it funky, she says!

And when it comes to fun and funky, one design is in a class of its own this season: the unique Cydwoq Converge:

Okay, we know we’re cheating a little bit since the fantastic Converge does let your big toe peek out a circular hole, but the design is really more shoe than sandal! (Or is it? So hard to say!) Although it defies categorization, the Converge is a winning look that’s completely fun to wear! Oh, the conversations you’ll start!

These are just a few ways to go if you don’t want to disclose your toes—more await your discovery at Ped’s main site! Don’t be shy—show off your shoes this summer!

(Psst, in case you didn’t see the post below, the Sweet Treat this week is the Cydwoq Sight, which is mostly shoe, although it does feature a charming peep toe! Click “be sweet to your feet” at the bottom of the box on the left of most Ped pages to be whisked to the Sight with the “Sweet Treat” designation. Then choose your color and size, and add it to your bag to receive an automatic 20% off at checkout!)

Elizabeth L.F.’s Tale of the Sole: Trippen love in the Haight!

Friday, March 7th, 2014

Ped fans, we often tell you that if you buy one pair of Trippen shoes, you’re more than likely to develop an addiction! The designs coming out of Berlin are just so edgy-cool and deliciously comfortable! But don’t take our word for it—take Elizabeth L.F.’s! Here’s her happy Tale of the Sole:

I wanted to let you know I’m thrilled with all my Trippens purchased through Ped. They are the ultimate in comfort for a middle-aged kindergarten teacher with wonky ankles, high arches, and a concrete sub-floor. I live in the Haight, and I walk everywhere. Over the past few years I’ve had lots of problems with my feet, and with Trippen shoes, I know I can walk across town or through the park, and my feet will be fine.

My Viviennes are the queen bees of the collection. They come out when I want to look as cute as my girls and still be able to catch up with them on the playground. (My best friend still loves her Viv’s after 14 years!)

Lucky students to have a kindergarten teacher who wears fun shoes like the Trippen Vivienne!

My dark blue Todi’s are fantastic for roughing it in the garden, but they’re still super stylish.

Ha ha! We love the way Elizabeth styled this photo of her cute Trippen Todi!

My red Cage’s are my casual favorite—again, amazingly cool-looking and incredibly comfortable.

The perfect shoes for reading Dr. Seuss: the Trippen Cage!

In December I ordered the Diesel in dark brown. Best booties ever! I ordered a few days before Christmas, and my boots arrived right on time, despite the holiday. They are truly the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever put on my feet–right out of the box. I’ve walked miles in them already (through Golden Gate Park, from my house in the Haight out to the Richmond)!

The Trippen Diesel are ready to take Elizabeth out and about in San Francisco.

I also have to say, Dayna, your help on the phone or by email is always invaluable. Thank you so much for providing such great quality shoes and such fantastic service. I’ll be teaching, playing, and walking with happy feet in my Trippens.

Thanks for sharing your Trippen love with us, Elizabeth! We’re all smiles at Ped HQ after reading your Tale!

To show our appreciation, we’re giving Elizabeth L.F. $100 in Ped credit! (We’re pretty sure we know what line she’ll buy…)

Do you have a Tale of the Sole? Tell us—and show us (we LOVE pictures!!!)—what happened to you while wearing something from Ped, and you, too, might be the recipient of $100 in Ped credit. We’d love to share your sole-ful story on the blog, so let us know what in the world you’ve been doing in your Ped!

(Speaking of Trippen goodness, this week’s Sweet Treat is the heavenly Trippen Holy! Click “be sweet to your feet” at the bottom of the box on the left of most Ped pages to reach the Holy. Then simply pop it into your bag to receive a sweet 20% off at checkout! You’ll be singing, “Hallelujah!” in no time!)
