Footwear of desire: Why you should own a pair of Trippen shoes this season
We have admired the Trippen brand for many years now, all the team at idaretobe personally own and wear ours with pride, so we were very excited to take the plunge and bring this fabulous designer into the idaretobe collective last year. They have been an immediate hit with our ladies, new customers have discovered just how amazingly comfortable these handcrafted shoes are, while existing fans can shop the latest styles in our store with ease.
So fast forward a year and we have a range of new styles from the spring-summer 2017 season. When we sit down with the family, as yes Trippen is still a family run business, first and foremost we want styles that compliment our style and look amazing with our clothing ranges. We then looks for something new and something less ordinary, of course with Trippen we are never disappointed as they push the boundaries in design, which of course we love. We can’t fault the quality and are in genuine awe at the years of expertise and technical knowledge in selecting the leathers and textiles, using various tanning processes to exact the finish we all desire.
This season we have very carefully selected a range of sandals and shoes that are going to make your spring-summer outfits look amazing. We have styles such as the the Fancy and Turbo sandals which will look fabulous at events and occasions, the Tape and Ariane which move with ease from day to evening, relaxed and more formal events.
The Deck style in two colours is great for our ladies who prefer a shoe rather than sandal and just great for the warmer months to come. Trippen’s new take on a gladiator style comes with Angel, split wedge sole and elasticated lacing and we’ve already re-ordered twice so far so it’s a popular one.
The Trippen Egypt sandal is a take on a clog style, but with endless style, from the white leather to the wax finish white wooden sole, again amazingly comfortable. We asked about the finish, as we expect these shoes to last a long time, well if you do manage to get a little chip or scratch Trippen showed us how easy it was to touch up with just a little white paint, good as new. Now that’s a great reason to invest in quality, look after it and it’ll last a lifetime.
