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.)

Swing the shift!

Sunday, March 2nd, 2014

It’s a new month, Ped fans, and we are beyond ready for the official start of spring in a few weeks! But looking at forecasts across the board, winter is not quite done with its chilly ways. So, what to wear?

Well, up top, we leave it to you to figure out the right mix of cashmere and cotton, coats and cardigans, but down on the ground, have no worries! Ped has the seasonal transition question solved in a bunch of stylish ways!

Behold shoes that let you air out the differences between winter and spring!

We love oxfords, but after the long slog through cold weather, we wish we could open them up a little! Pep Monjo to the rescue! Check out Pep’s new Lila lace-up:

Ta da! Perfect with socks or tights when the snow has melted but the grass is not yet green, the Lila is also ideal barefoot when the garden is in full bloom!

Mr. Monjo also works his design magic at Argila, where he has us wowed with another aired-out oxford, the Pilar:

So much charm for one easy-going shoe! We especially like the rounded stacked-leather heel, black leather piping at the seams, and sweet cutouts by the heel and over the toe!

If you prefer a lace-up that’s less traditional, then feast your eyes (and feet) on the air-conditioned Trippen Chill:

Crafted from twice-dyed leather that’s black on one side and white on the other, the Chill leaves no grey area—it’s simply the coolest shoe to stroll down the street! Über-edgy and über-fun!

Oxford-esque shoes aren’t the only way to swing into spring. The Argila Arianna offers a breezy buckled option:

Isn’t that caramel leather delicious? The Arianna offers the same winning ways as the Pilar above, but in a t-strap design that we adore!

Perhaps you flip for a zip? Then do a back flip for the back-zippered Trippen Skipper:

This strap-happy design just makes us smile! Saucy with socks and tights for the remaining chill days, the Skipper is ready and waiting to let your bare skin soak up the sun!

Looking for something more lady-like? Then let your femininity out to play in the cute-as-can-be Cydwoq South:

A true blue shoe to see you through the seasonal shift, the South features Rafi’s latest innovation: an easy ankle tie of leather petals! Sweet as an April breeze! (Wishing this design had a little height? You’re in luck! Check out the South’s well-heeled cousin, the Cydwoq Market!)

Of course, if you really want to spring into Spring, then set your sights on the Cydwoq Sight:

You don’t have to wait for May flowers when you can put the garden on your feet in March! The Sight gives your winter-weary dogs a literal and figurative breath of fresh air!

As always, there are even more ways to walk from winter into spring over at Ped’s main site. Remember change is good, especially when you’ve got the right shoes to let you swing the shift with ‘zazz!

(Psst, this week’s Sweet Treat is the Cliff Dweller Canoe, which just happens to be another terrific season spanner! Click “be sweet to your feet” at the bottom of the box on the left at Ped’s main site to reach the Canoe, and then simply pop it in your bag to instantly receive 20% off at checkout! Easy-peasy and oh-so breezy!)

What’s that you say? “Boots, give me boots!” Then boots you shall have! First up, Trippen’s well-named Treasure:

Bootie Beauty

Friday, September 20th, 2013

What we like about 21st century fashion is how open-ended it is! Just as hemlines have become wonderfully variable, boot heights are now left up to the whimsy of the wearer. Whether you like over-the-knee sexiness, mid-calf chic, or ankle-high edge, you’ll always be in style!

That said, Ped fans, we hold a special place in our hearts for booties. They’re just so fun and versatile—great with skirts and easy to wear with pants (no wrestling to get them over or under the fabric)!

This season our harvest of sweet-and-low ankle boots is especially bountiful! There are are so many juicy designs that it’s hard to know where to begin. Here’s just a taste of Ped’s bootie buffet:

Pep Monjo is best known as the genius behind Argila, but a couple years ago he started his own eponymous line. Since then, every single Pep Monjo style has become an instant classic. We are WILD (wild, I tell you) about his new Cora bootie:

The leather is so luscious, and the details are exquisitely thought-out, like the simple perforations arcing over the toe and heel. Buckle us up!

Of course, Mr. Monjo still works his magic for Argila, too, as evidenced by the gorgeous Granada:

Modern and curvy, this wood-heeled bootie takes the lace-up into chic new territory! Spanish style for miles!

Speaking of wooden heels, the one supporting Coclico’s Norma boot is particularly lovely:

The lines of the dark wood have subtle arcs that reflect the clean yet dramatic lines of the black leather upper! Plus, the .75″ platform under the toe offsets the 3″ heel to make the pitch a walkable 2.25″.

Looking for a lower heel but heightened feminine wiles? The Cydwoq Knee  is guaranteed to bring ‘em to their knees:

The paisley burnt-out leather is stunning up front, and the corset-like closure is beyond sexy in back! Holy hot sauce, talk about a femme fatale!

A little less girly but no less charming, another ankle boot “with back” is Cydwoq’s Cleo:

This beauty is handmade in Burbank, CA, but it radiates European street chic! The leaf-shaped strap across the back offers function in stellar form and offers people behind you something to see!

Want a zing of color for your ankles? Cydwoq’s got just the thing: the Beacon bootie!

A dash of red adds zest to any day! The wonderful-to-wear Beacon, with its comfy round toe, is one of our big-time faves this season!

Trippen also does some dazzling things with color. Feast your eyes on the new Liverpool:

A fusion of a retro 60′s rock ‘n’ roll boot with a modern-day Aussie pull-on, the lightweight Liverpool, with its brilliant purple elastic sides, may put you in mind of the Fab Four as you dash down the street looking fabulous!

As we said, these are just few tasty morsels from the wide-ranging menu of delicious booties at Ped’s main site! While you do the walking, let your ankle boots do the  stylish talking!

(Psst, this week’s Sweet Treat, the Cydwoq Marmot, falls into “shootie” territory—a little more than a shoe, a little less than a boot, but just right for everyday wear! We love it! Just click “be sweet to your feet” at the bottom of the box on the left of most Ped pages to land at the Marmot with the special code that will bring 20% off at checkout!)
