shoes off

Back when we were at Cookie we did a story about shoes-off policy…and we got in this lovely hand-made ceramic sign from Rae Dunn, who makes them in her Bay Area studio. It’s such a nice way to eliminate the awkward “oh is this a shoes-off house” conversation that happens when a first-time guest comes over.


Now that the temperature has dipped, we’re embracing all things fall. These house shoes made and sourced in Patagonia are looking pretty cozy. Not to sound too much like an episode of Portlandia… they’re made from salmon leather (an up-cycled and repurposed by-product of the commercial salmon industry) and Patagonian wool, and made by local […]


Our friend and colleague Jenny is a sensible shoe wearer. For her, comfort is king. So when we saw her wearing these sexy shoes all day long in the office, we had to believe her that they are truly comfortable (she swears it’s the wedge that makes them that way). They’re from the new line […]


How cute are these clogs from LL Bean?! Our friend Ayesha, who has feet issues like we do (our work floor is concrete and it’s brutal on the feet), just got these, and after a whole day of wearing them, was very pleased. They’re on sale right now, from $125 to $75.


I was given these espadrilles for a Mother’s Day present, and they’re the first pair of espadrilles I can actually wear, in comfort. Here’s why: they have a rubber sole added to the bottom, which gives a little more padding, but also means they won’t get ruined as fast. They also have a piece of […]


I didn’t think I was in the market for hi-top sneakers—they really aren’t my style. But these all navy Vans that are a reissue of a skate shoe, and are actually pretty hard to find, are so cool. It’s because they’re all one solid color, and there’s no logo or design crap on them that […]

I could not believe it when our friend and colleague Marcie told us that these fantastic espadrilles came from Payless. Isabel Toledo did a special collection for them, and these are one pair from the line. They are super on sale right now ($30), and most of the sizes are gone from their online store, […]


Earlier this year we met Valerie, the woman behind Bakker Made With Love, a line of kids’ clothes and accessories that she designs with her husband out of Paris. Needless to say, it was her shoes–the best pair of Repetto shoes ever–that caught our eye. (Meanwhile, it seems that they’re only available in Paris, but […]

becca's vans

Our friend Becca had these Vans on the other day, and besides them looking really cute, they seemed substantial enough to run around in all day (not like an espadrille) and comfortable. We couldn’t find the exact ones she had, but these ones below look pretty good too.
