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!

Trippen into chilly weather

Saturday, November 19th, 2011

I don’t know about you, Ped fans, but when the trees lose their leaves and the temperature drops, I need something special to put the zip back in my step. Fortunately, a big box of Trippen has just arrived at Ped central! Those award-winning designers in Berlin know just how to liven up grey days with fun and funky footwear! But Trippen’s shoes and boots go beyond edgy and artistic; they’re also supremely comfortable, and most are cut to accommodate cozy socks.

Our latest shipment includes both old favorites and new styles to brighten your fall and winter! Here are a few ways Trippen will have you skipping through the chilly days ahead:

If you’re looking for a boot that’s understated and versatile, but also a little different, Trippen’s wonderful new Nightingale is just the thing:

This boot’s deliciously soft nubuck is further textured by a few carefully placed folds sewn along a seam near the back. The wine color is rich, but the detail we love is the zingy red zipper running up the inside of the shaft! It’s just a little detail, but it brings so much to the party.

Like the Nightingale, the go-anywhere Apart Bootie is also built on Trippen’s super light “cups” rubber sole. (You have to wear it to believe how comfortable it is!)

Big bang for your boot buck, the oh-so-supple Apart offers several ways to wear it: pulled up, scrunched down, or folded over into a cuff!

Offering options in a different way is Trippen’s Bomb Bootie:

This little beauty comes with both brown AND black straps that let you cinch up the ankle just the way you like it. Change them out as your fancy strikes you—or go strapless! The Bomb comes in the great espresso brown pictured above, as well as in matte black! It is THE BOMB!

Another terrific black ankle boot is Trippen’s new Fox:

Such a cutie!!! This innovative style pays homage to the lace-up oxford but raises the style ante with a supple gaiter that forms a loose ruffle around the ankle. Both funky and feminine, the foxy Fox stands on Trippen’s comfortable t-shaped rubber wedge!

We’ve also brought back the boot that won everyone’s heart last year: the Holy!

Those swooping exposed seams and the way the ankle strap laces through and around the upper make us sigh with love! So funky yet utterly wearable!

For those of you who want a jolt of color, check out Trippen’s Blackbird (cousin of the Nightingale above):

How luscious is that blue? Note the folds in the supple nubuck that radiate from the top of the heel to the seam that sinuously curves from the inside ankle over the foot to the outside edge. Such artistry!

If you want something even bolder, Trippen has just the ticket: the Mild Bootie. It’s our favorite!

Red hot! Definitely more wild than mild, this boot will have everyone talking! Buckle up because you’ll be the center of attention everywhere you go! (We also have the Mild in black for you fans of all things noir.)

These are just the tip of the iceberg of Trippen styles that will have you looking both cooler than cool and hotter than hot, no matter how wintry the day!

(By the way, this week’s Sweet Treat is also a bonfire of hotness: Vialis’ Marguerita Boot! Simply click “be sweet to your feet” in the upper right corner of any Ped page to arrive at the Marguerita with the discount code that will bring 20% at checkout!)
