Swing the shift!Sunday, March 2nd, 2014
It’s a new month, Ped fans, and we are beyond ready for the official start of spring in a few weeks! But looking at forecasts across the board, winter is not quite done with its chilly ways. So, what to wear?
Well, up top, we leave it to you to figure out the right mix of cashmere and cotton, coats and cardigans, but down on the ground, have no worries! Ped has the seasonal transition question solved in a bunch of stylish ways!
Behold shoes that let you air out the differences between winter and spring!
We love oxfords, but after the long slog through cold weather, we wish we could open them up a little! Pep Monjo to the rescue! Check out Pep’s new Lila lace-up:
Ta da! Perfect with socks or tights when the snow has melted but the grass is not yet green, the Lila is also ideal barefoot when the garden is in full bloom!
Mr. Monjo also works his design magic at Argila, where he has us wowed with another aired-out oxford, the Pilar:
So much charm for one easy-going shoe! We especially like the rounded stacked-leather heel, black leather piping at the seams, and sweet cutouts by the heel and over the toe!
If you prefer a lace-up that’s less traditional, then feast your eyes (and feet) on the air-conditioned Trippen Chill:
Crafted from twice-dyed leather that’s black on one side and white on the other, the Chill leaves no grey area—it’s simply the coolest shoe to stroll down the street! Über-edgy and über-fun!
Oxford-esque shoes aren’t the only way to swing into spring. The Argila Arianna offers a breezy buckled option:
Isn’t that caramel leather delicious? The Arianna offers the same winning ways as the Pilar above, but in a t-strap design that we adore!
Perhaps you flip for a zip? Then do a back flip for the back-zippered Trippen Skipper:
This strap-happy design just makes us smile! Saucy with socks and tights for the remaining chill days, the Skipper is ready and waiting to let your bare skin soak up the sun!
Looking for something more lady-like? Then let your femininity out to play in the cute-as-can-be Cydwoq South:
A true blue shoe to see you through the seasonal shift, the South features Rafi’s latest innovation: an easy ankle tie of leather petals! Sweet as an April breeze! (Wishing this design had a little height? You’re in luck! Check out the South’s well-heeled cousin, the Cydwoq Market!)
Of course, if you really want to spring into Spring, then set your sights on the Cydwoq Sight:
You don’t have to wait for May flowers when you can put the garden on your feet in March! The Sight gives your winter-weary dogs a literal and figurative breath of fresh air!
As always, there are even more ways to walk from winter into spring over at Ped’s main site. Remember change is good, especially when you’ve got the right shoes to let you swing the shift with ‘zazz!
