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.)
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.)
It’s that time of year, Ped fans, when your inbox starts to overflow with invitations to holiday shindigs. No doubt, your favorite LBD will get a workout, night after sparkly night! But what to put on your feet to make sure you’re still standing comfortably after all those hours of socializing while quaffing eggnog, wassail, and champagne?
Ped to the rescue with a few festive ways to keep your dogs from howling at the moon!
Chie Mihara knows all about letting your inner girly girl out to shine without sacrificing your soles (and arches and toes). One of the prettiest shoes of the season is the Chie Mihara Kitaro:
Ooooh, we adore the textured gold leather trim with the blue suede heel and brown suede toe! What a way to add color and sparkle to a little black dress!
Colorful suede also makes the Accessoire Doisneu a welcome guest at any party:
Gorgeous and soooooo comfortable! This beauty’s suede-covered platform slopes from 1.75″ in back to .75″ up front, making the pitch a delightful 1″! And the stylized rosette is beyond chic! (We adore the “grenat” (garnet) version pictured here, but the Doisneau also comes in amethyst.)
Another flower-adorned shoe that will have you shining is Chie Mihara’s Karta:
This glittery oxford is tied up and ready for cocktails! (We also offer the Karta in a red that’s as pretty as a poinsettia.)
If you’re looking for something sparkly but a little airier, you’re guaranteed to wow in Cydwoq’s Gaudi:
Hi ho, silver! In this gorgeous sandal, you’ll turn every head in the room. (And those behind you can swoon over the design on the etched heel!)
Perhaps you like your metallics a little more low-key. If so, say hello to Cydwoq’s understated yet oh-so chic Fluid:
The Fluid is perfect for when you need to go straight from work out for evening drinks—it makes the transition in the most fluid and stylish way!
Another work-to-play knockout is Cydwoq’s strap-a-licious Young:
The Young is so very sexy but in a socially acceptable way! (Make sure you click “Views” to see the saucy corset-like closure in back.)
The same closure adds even more fuel to the fiery hotness of Cydwoq’s Knee, which is ideal if you want to party in a dressy ankle boot:
Isn’t that burnt-out paisley leather breathtaking? The Knee is guaranteed to make you the modern and edgy belle of the ball!
For you Ped fans whose style is more funky than femme, consider rocking the holiday cocktails in Cydwoq’s Love Ankle Boot:
We love the idea of wearing an LBD with this black and red badass beauty! You’ll light hearts on fire! (Where you can roast some chestnuts…)
‘Tis the season to take your tootsies out on the town!
So far, Summer 2013 has been a doozy, Ped fans! Chilly days! Sweltering days! Stormy days!

Another shoe that charms with a variety of leathers is the Chie Mihara Isias oxford:

$458, it’s a party for your feet at $358!
Looking for an everyday shoe that’s more understated? Consider the streamlined beauty of the Cliff Dweller Norma:
If you like a run-around flat but long for a zing of color, say hello to the Vialis Pilar!
Simple yet saucy, the Pilar will instantly become your favorite! The only question is whether to pick cherry red suede (pictured) or curry mustard suede? Zesty at
$212, the Pilar‘s spice is even nicer at $169!
Cydwoq has some particularly lovely flats this season, too, such as the airy Cover:
The holy grail of shoes, the Cover effortlessly goes from running errands Saturday afternoon out to a cocktail party in the evening! A find at

It’s the dead of winter. Holiday parties are long past. It’s weeks before the first crocuses sprout. And daylight is still in short supply.
Time for a little pick-me-up, wouldn’t you say?
Well, that’s just what we at Ped Central have in mind! Welcome to the Ped Winter Sale, where those shoes you’ve been drooling over for months suddenly have a nicer price! Here’s just a taste of the sweet deals we hope will brighten your smile on even the greyest day!
First up, one of our favorite ankle boots this season: Argila’s oxford-inspired Lauren!
Argila serves up a lot to love, from the perforations on the toe to the leather’s pinked edges to the sculpted wooden wedge! Drool-worthy at
$418, it’s even more delicious at $209!
Another wonderful suede style, unlike anything else on the street, is Accessoire’s Euro-chic Ulrich:
Here at Ped HQ, we just can’t get enough of that luscious cassis color! Plus, the tie in back is so distinctive! Fabulous at
$358, the Ulrich is off the charts at $179!
As long as we’re on the topic of gorgeous suede shoes, take a gander at the Chie Mihara Pasion:
We heart this heart-embellished t-strap! Because it’s from Chie Mihara, you know it will baby your soles with comfort! Lovable at
$358, it’s simply irresistible at $179! (Anybody else suddenly have Robert Palmer singing in their heads?)
At least six more weeks of winter awaits (we’re making the prediction ahead of Punxsutawney Phil), so every Ped fan could use a great new pair of boots! Our suggestion? The Cydwoq’s Bend!
Crafted from Cydwoq’s a-maz-ing double-dyed leather, we love the way the red underside of the black outer reveals itself in the top flaps and along the seam that runs down the front and snakes over the toe! Sizzling at
$458, the Bend is burning down the house at $229!
Maybe a saucy little ankle boot is more up your alley? If so, one of the best this season is Cydwoq’s Artisan:
The mod look of this heeled bootie is smashing! We’re wild about the ultra-cool and subtle plaid pattern of the textured leather beneath the brown leather overlay! And you can’t beat a zipper up the back for sexiness! A looker at
$368, it’s a head-turner at $184!
If you’re looking for a bootie that’s less femme and more rock ‘n’ roll, consider the Trippen Brace:
The steel leather is fantastic, and the industrial embossing of the cut straps around the ankle is cooler than cool! (In fact, it’s ice cold, a la OutKast’s “Hey Ya!”.) Rocking at $318, it blows the roof off at $159! (Shake it like a Polaroid picture!)
Finally, we know many Ped fans wait with bated breath for us to put anything Fiorentini + Baker on sale! Well, rejoice because the “Bordeaux Wine” and “Blue Moon” versions of F+B’s Emmy Boot temporarily have a sliced price that’s oh-so nice (act fast because only a few sizes remain)!
Fantastic Italian construction is always in style! Boots to love for a lifetime! Worth every penny at
$518, they’re the bargain of the century at $399!
As always, these are just a taste of the delicious deals awaiting you in Ped’s sale section! What a way to give your puppies a little extra woof during these icy three-dog nights!
