Back(pack) to School!

Every Fall I get a little nostalgic for the smell of books and freshly sharpened pencils and most of all back to school shopping.  I know I am not the only person who has fond memories of this, which is why we are offering 15% off backpacks until labor day.  Get geared up for classes with a sturdy pack from Archival or maybe a fashionable Pendelton wool bag from Parfleche.  We have lots of great options in the shop so come and get them quick!

Lace Up and Never Leave.

Our fall boots are arriving and we just got in a great new pair from Frye! I swear, once you lace your feet into a pair of the Courtney lace-up boot, you will never want to take them off!

This boot is made with the same quality and craftsmanship that the Frye Company is known for. The leather is a gorgeous and rich cognac brown with a zipper for easy access. I love this shoe because it combines a stacked heel with a classic work boot shape to create a sleek yet casual look.

Lots of shoe love!

Hello - I visited your store yesterday and purchased a couple of pairs of earrings on sale. Could you please tell me the brand of shoe that is on display in the rear-right corner of the store (facing in from the entrance); appx the 2nd shelf from the top if not the top shelf; very light weight, dark turquoise mesh Mary Jane-type with a black, bubbly sole.... brand begins with B and is 2 words. I'm trying to convince my friend to buy them. Thanks!

Hi there! You must be talking about the ever-popular brand Bernie Mev in the Charm style! Thanks for visiting and let us know if this was the shoe you were talking about — we are always happy to put a shoe on hold :)

Meet the Team: Nikki!

Hi, I’m Nikki!

I’m a free spirit/creative mind/designer that relocated to The City of Roses from coastal Northern California, where I was studying biology and studio art. 
I’m an accessories lady through and through. I love them. I want them. I need them. I must have developed this love as a tot, because for as long as I can remember I’ve been making my own jewelry and adornments. [Okay, and everything else, really.] As an older tot, I now have my own business [NIICO LABEL], where I’m able to share my creations with the world!
I’m so excited to be a part of the shoe crew at pedX and Manifesto!

Bed|Stü at Manifesto

We have a new brand at Manifesto! Welcome, Bed|Stü. This line of boots and shoes are a modern take on vintage styles - a little class with a little roughness. This juxtaposition is just what the brand stands for and they truly make timeless shoes that are meant to get dirty!

We have the Bonnie boot and the Shuffle flat in for the ladies and let me tell you - my feet were SO happy when they tried these on. These come from the Cobbler Series and well, they sum it up best. Here’s what Bed|Stü has to say about this new line, 

"Bed|Stü Cobbler Series bucks the mass-production trend, holding to a day and age when shoes were meticulously crafted by the hands of a cobbler. With extreme attention to detail, each pair was custom made for the perfect fit. And staying true to its name, our Cobbler collection is hand-crafted by a small team of skilled cobblers to preserve the true artisanship and heritage of shoe-making."

Come try a pair :)  -Analise

Day Trippin’ with the Desert Trooper

This hot weather has been sending everyone to the river and the mountains for some cooler air and our Clark’s Desert Trooper’s don’t want to miss out!

These boots are very similar to everyone’s favorite, the Desert Boot, but without the traditional gum sole. I like this sturdier heel because you have better traction as well as support. win-win!

These would be perfect to take you from brunch in the city to the afternoon outdoors. We also have a large array of canvas backpacks so while you’re trying these on you might as well check that out too!

Weekend warriors we have you covered! Hurry before these are gone!

Friday Roundup!

TGIF am I right? This warm weather is here to stay so if your tootsies are getting tired in some of your old sandals or shoes, come treat yourself to a new pair! Don’t forget that your feet swell in heat like this so it’s imperative to have the right fitting shoes. 

For the dudes come try on a pair of the J Shoes “William” or Timberland “6456”. Navy with a white sole - yes.

Ladies, come snag a pair of Clarks “Caslynn Regina” or the new Camper “Sinuosa” in red (we also have it in black!).

Have a wonderful Friday and start to your weekend! -Analise

Sneaker Style

May I present to you the Tsubo “Adan Woven”. AKA my favorite men’s sneaker in the shop! Tsubo is known for some of the most comfortable shoes and if you’re a city dweller who walks a lot - these are what you need. Since we have them in both black and brown, there’s really no going wrong!

These may look like a Fall/Winter shoe but cuff your pants or throw on shorts and voila! Summer shoe! Grab a Chester Wallace bag (locally made) and a Redwing belt for good measure. You know you want these sneakers as much as I do! - Analise
