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.

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.

Trippen is what’s happening!

Monday, September 24th, 2012

Every season we go on and on about what geniuses the German designers at Trippen are, how amazing their leathers and craftsmanship are, and how they’ve really outdone themselves with the latest styles! But honestly, Ped fans, every season it’s TRUE!

This fall is no exception. When the latest Trippen boxes arrived at the Ped warehouse, every boot and shoe we unpacked had us shouting, “WOW!” Think we’re exaggerating? Please see for yourself:

Just when all the beautiful boots out there start to blur together, along comes Trippen to open our eyes to things utterly new and different! Consider the Wind:

WOW! Too cool for school (but feel free to wear them there anyway), this mid-calf boot’s blue-edged seams vine around the shaft, while a zipper zings up the back!

Like the seams but looking for something lower to the ground? Here’s a tasty temptation: the Trippen Oven:

WOW! Longtime Ped fans know if there’s one way to turn my head, it’s with a great green shoe! And the Oven keeps it turned with its seaming and saucy lace-up back!

Trippen also uses back lacing to fabulous effect in the new California boot:

WOW! Be still our fringe-loving hearts! What a Bohemian beauty! The way the natural edges contrast with the petrol-colored leather is spectacular!

Prefer your lacing up front? Trippen’s got your number in the sizzling Corset:

WOW! The structural design of this boot is stunning—vertical seams create a “corset” around your ankle and then flare into a dramatic ruffle around the top. Industrial down below and flirtatious above!

Taking the ankle boot in a completely different and pared-down direction, Trippen dishes up the Diesel:

WOW! We heart this little boot so much it leaves us breathless! The dual zipper is fun and clever, and the curry-colored leather is lip-smackingly delicious. (Plus, if you forget to pack your clutch, it can do double duty…)

If you’re charmed by the Diesel’s zippy zipper design but wish it were on a taller boot, Trippen grants your wish with the Super:

WOW! Versatile and comfortable yet with super-sized style, the Super is definitely a contender for the title of Must-Have Boot of the Season!

Trippen hasn’t forgotten those of you who like to step out the door with flash and panache! Brace yourselves:

WOW! Futuristic, industrial, and as chic as the day is long, Trippen’s Brace is the boot for making maximal impact! Shine on, sisters!

And those are just the tip of the eye-opening Trippen iceberg that’s definitely keeping things cooler than cool at Ped HQ! Lots more Trippen styles await your ogling over at Ped’s main site, so go get an eyeful!
