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…
Look what Dayna found in her fortune cookie this weekend! Truth!
Take a little summer with you all year long by wearing the petal-perfect Trippen Poppy, this week’s Sweet Treat! Bop and pop with the colorful Poppy for 20% off by clicking “be sweet to your feet” at the bottom of the box on the left of most Ped pages. When you land at the Poppy with the “Sweet Treat” designation, simply pop it into your bag to receive the discount automatically when you check out!
Flower power forever!
Whoa, wasn’t it yesterday that it was mid-May? The summer feels like it’s zooming by in overdrive, Ped fans, and just around the bend, autumn will be upon us with chilly nights and changing leaves.
Honestly, we love the latter–yellow, orange, and, especially, red leaves make it worth waving goodbye to summer’s green. And what looks good on branches looks good on your limbs, too. We love red shoes any time of year, but even more so during fall. Here are some of the reds at Ped for the upcoming season:
A perfect shoe for strolling through the rest of summer and then kicking up the leaves in fall is the Trippen Poppy:
The flower on the toe is the star of the show, but the ankle strap adds sex appeal to this comfortable flat, making it red hot and ready!
If you need something dressier (but just as comfortable), consider Cydwoq’s wine-colored Calamity:
The red is rich yet understated, so the Calamity plays well with lots of things in your closet! We love all the subtle curves in the design, including the teardrop cutout.
For those of you who prefer to go bold when you go girly, get an eyeful of Chie Mihara’s flirty red Geraldine:
Fun and unabashedly feminine, this suede heel winks at your admirers with gold leather lids and black leather lashes!
As soon as the air gets crisp, boots become frequent fliers in our daily dressing. Put some red in your tread with Cydwoq’s new Pitstop:
Between the textured ruddy leather and the all-rivet construction, we don’t know which we love more! Plus, the Pitstop‘s Vibram lug sole means you can wear this boot out and about, no matter what the weather!
Another eye-popping red boot with details to make your fans ooh and aah is Trippen’s Raven:
Trippen has the art of exposed seams down to a science! You’ll spark conversations wherever you walk in this sculptural beauty.
Like your boots with a dash of height-enhancing heel? Take a gander at the gorgeousness of the Fiorentini + Baker Nelly:
The 2.5″ stacked-leather heel makes this buckle-strap boot extra badass! When you zip up the Nelly, everyone will know who’s in charge!
Of course, if you really want to pull out the stops and wear all the colors of fall–including red!–step into the sexy Cydwoq Involve:
Say it with us: “WOW!” The hand-painted “Picasso” leather, which has a subtle metallic sheen, is truly a work of art! What a beautiful way to walk into chilly days!
So, get ahead in red, and add your own color to fall!
