Get a grip (in the most stylish way)!
Ped fans, it’s been a while since we invited a new shoe line into the Ped house, but we are so excited to welcome Deux Souliers!
Deux Souliers means “two shoes” in French, but the company itself is Spanish! Based in Barcelona and led by designer Nunu Solsona, Deux Souliers embraces “slow fashion,” attending to each design in a considered and unrushed way. Deux Souliers’ approach is to adapt classic styles to make them fresh for a modern era while keeping their timeless quality intact!
The shoes themselves are handcrafted in Menorca (yep, that’s Pep Monjo’s base, too) using 100% Spanish materials. The result? See for yourselves:
Let’s face it, there are a lot of ankle boots out there this season, but Deux Souliers’ Collar Bootie still manages to stand out from the crowd:
We love how the mocha-colored nubuck section embraces the chocolate suede collar, tongue, and toe almost like a reverse spat. And the red top-stitching on the midsection is fantastic! If you’re not down with brown, we also offer the Collar Bootie in a gorgeous navy blue.
Another style that’s everywhere is the oxford, but once again Deux Souliers gives theirs a little something extra. Say hello to the Blucher Strap:
The basic oxford is beautiful, but the addition of the snap strap, which rises diagonally and then zips around the back, is sheer style genius!
Another classic lace-up receiving the Deux Soliers treatment is the deck shoe. Preppy no more, the Nautic Oxford is urban and edgy:
The combination of black leather and felted wool makes this shoe arty and distinctive. Plus we’re gaga for the hexagonal metal grommets! So nutty (couldn’t resist) and fun!
But Deux Soliers is not done with its deck-shoe inspiration! The boat shoe also gets transformed into the head-turning Nautic Heel:
How we love a red shoe, and this one has us over the moon! All the elements–from the mix of pebbled leather and nubuck to the chunky heel to the outside leather lacing—ccombine to make one stunning package!
Nevertheless, we understand some Ped fans prefer a more minimal look. Deux Souliers keeps things to the stylish necessary for the Seam Heel:
What a lean, clean, blue walking machine! The navy color is au courant, and the natural edge of the leather rimming the sole offers the perfect zing of contrast.
Of course, if you’re ready to step things up and make a big statement, Deux Souliers has just the thing! Drink in the gorgeousness of the Chelsea:
Such a rock ‘n’ roll rebel! The Chelsea may be a super-chic badass, but this bootie is still a pleasure to walk in, letting you strut your stuff with ease while flashing a little toe cleavage or colorful tights!
Are you as wowed as we are by Deux Souliers? We’re so pleased to add these “two shoes” to Ped’s treasures! Now, the only question is which pair to wear first…
Ped fans, we know how it is. Sometimes a style will catch your eye, but you can’t quite envision how it would work with your daily wardrobe. Maybe you think gold is strictly for after-five, or those edgy zippered boots seem too out there for running errands. Or maybe you want to snazz up what you wear, but you’re not sure where to start.
We’re here to help! Below are a few ideas for how to make the most of some of our best autumn boots.
Whether you’re walking the dog, meeting friends for a casual lunch, going to a parent-teacher meeting, or doing all three in the same day, Trippen’s Onion Boot makes a great companion:
As we often say, the shoes don’t have to match the outfit, they just have to “go.” We love the interplay of textures and patterns among the sweater, skirt, and Sophie Digard Puzzle Scarf, and the Helix fits right in, even though it’s brown!
The Amber is such a comfortable way to make a statement that it would also sing with the following outfit, ideal for college students and profs, graphic designers, architects, or anyone else who likes to get creative with what they wear! We’ve pulled out the stops by suggesting either the Trippen Foam or Cydwoq Pitstop as boot options!
Are we getting too edgy for your taste? Well, you might be surprised to discover both the Trippen Foam and Cydwoq Pitstop also work with this more subdued (but still fun) outfit, which we’ve put with the Argila Katniss:
But what if you have a job that requires something dressier, you ask? Well, the Katniss would be equally at home with the following look, guaranteed to wow clients, which we’ve enhanced with Chie Mihara’s stunning Dalatchi:
The Chie Mihara Dalatchi and Cydwoq Bright Bag would also be sensational with the following ensemble, which epitomizes how you don’t need a lot of bells and whistless to look impeccably chic! Ideal for going straight from the office out for cocktails and dinner, this outfit is the perfect setting for Cydwoq’s Involve ankle boot:
Is your imagination sparked? We hope so! There are so many terrific ways to wear Ped’s styles!
Incidentally, all of the outfits above were created using Polyvore, which is a great way to try out wardrobe ideas without having to try everything on.
The rule to remember: Always have fun with how you dress!
(Psst, this week’s Sweet Treat is Coclico’s beautiful Valentine bootie, which would look fab with every single outfit in this post! To receive 20% off the Valentine, simply click “be sweet to your feet” at the bottom of the box on the left of most Ped pages. When you land at the Valentine with the Sweet Treat designation, choose your size, add it to your bag, and the discount will occur automatically at checkout.)
