Check out the new Chie!

July 25th, 2014

The time has come, Ped fans, to see what marvels Chie Mihara has whipped up for fall! Everyone’s favorite Spanish sorceress of style has once again designed heels to make you happy in leathers to make everyone look.

So pour yourself an ice tea or a cocktail and prepare to scroll through beauty!

The title of this post is a play on one of Chie Mihara’s most playful leather techniques this season, checkerboard weaving, which looks especially sassy on the new Uptown oxford:

How fun is this lace-up??? We especially like how the caramel leather back and dark brown leather toe complement the Uptown‘s green, cream, and chocolate checked midsection!

Chie takes her checkered ways a little higher and amps up the femininity in the gorgeous Genesis:

Ooh la la, so chic! The leather colors are eye-catching and unusual (that’s a pale sage interwoven with black in the midsection). Even though the heel is a statuesque 3″, you can comfortably wear it all day long because Chie has cleverly hidden a .5″ platform under the toe, bringing the pitch to an easy 2.5″.

The always imaginative Ms. Mihara moves her checkerboard technique in a new direction on the Dalatchi, which weaves together wool and leather:

If ever there was a bootie to stop traffic, this is it! Below the stunning woven shaft, black matte leather adds a luxe element, while the 3″ sculpted wood heel is architecturally interesting. Sister, trust us, the Dalatchi is GO!

But Chie’s checkerboard weave isn’t the only trick she has up her design sleeve this season. Take a gander at the flocked leather on the Jan:

We swoon every time we look at this modern Mary Jane! The flocked leather on the toe, which feels like suede and looks like a mini-cheetah print, is the show stealer, but also adding fuel to the fire are the Jan‘s slightly flared heel and beautifully constructed buckle strap!

Chie Mihara has the deftest touch when it comes to creating understated designs that still let your flair fly, like the Ozana:

Perfect for arguing a case in court or holding court at an art opening, the Ozana‘s luxe grey suede is subtly sexed up by its ankle strap and teeth-like fringe! Sharp and chic!

Another bold detail that’s just right without going over-the-top is the bow on  Chie Mihara’s Zulema boot:

All the lines are lean and clean, allowing the bow to be at once fem and and badass! Zip up the Zulema, and put some girly zing in your step!

But when going over-the-top is exactly what you want, we highly recommend Chie Mihara’s knockout Wiuda:

Holy hot sauce, what a looker! This purplish-brown, croc-embossed leather lace-up, with its flared heel and pointed—yet still comfortable!—toe,  would have been beautiful on its own. But Chie embellishes it with a fringed and pinked-edge black leather flower to send this femme fetale into the stratosphere of gorgeousness! Wow to the Wiuda!

Chie Mihara shoes always make us want to cha-cha out the door and down the street, so everyone can admire our beautiful feet! Believe it or not, there’s even more Chie Mihara loveliness to admire at Ped, so click on through and put  some Spanish spice in your step!

Trip the light fantastic in Trippen all-time favorites!

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!)
