Meet the Maker: Fiorentini & BakerMonday, October 24th, 2022
Ped fans, we’re sorry we’ve been so remiss! It occurs to us in the Warrens of the Warehouse that we haven’t shared a Tale of the Sole in ages! And since summer has thoroughly yielded it’s bliss to fall’s chill, it’s the perfect time to tell the following tale. Let’s join Ped fan Marie for a quick trip North of the Border. Way North. To Alaska, to be exact. Here’s her report about her Ped-happy home:
Waiting in line at the alaska-grown vegetable booth at the alaska state fair. a gentleman came up to me and asked, “Young lady, May I ask where you got your boots?
I retrieved a business card from my wallet and handed it to his wife, explaining exactly why I shop at pedshoes :: satisfying shopping experience. meticulous craftsmanship. timeless style.
Recently I came to the realization that shoes and, in particular, boots, are tools for my needs. So, I never feel I must rationalize purchasing well-made hand-crafted boots.
And Marie goes on to mention her experience with us Ped-sters:
Dayna is always knowledgeable and helpful, even going as far as donning a pair of show-room boots and shooting a photo when I have questions about appearance and fit. Thank you, Dayna and Ped Shoes for all my unique and artsy tools….
We’re blushing! And as a token of gratitude for sharing her shoes, Ped is delighted to give Marie a $100 gift certificate!
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!

Ped fans, what does Coclico mean to you? If you’re like us, the first thought that bubbles up is “Fab ankle boots!” But behind those to-die-for booties is a company that’s committed to sustainable social and environmental practices, as well as to true master craftsmanship in shoe production.
We thought you might like to see a lovely video Coclico put together to showcase the work and workers at its factory in Mallorca, Spain. This small family-owned operation produces only Coclico shoes, and Coclico founder Sandra Canselier is on a first-name basis with the employees who make each style by hand.

So when you opt for a chic style like the Coclico Nanette, you get so much more than a beautiful bootie!
You get heart and soul in your soles!
