Trippen at idaretobe – a match made in heaven
Now if I was to describe a shoe brand as environmentally and socially responsible and making the most comfortable shoes you’ve ever worn, you’d probably be imagining a shoe that was somewhat lacking in style. But if I was to tell you that this same brand is renowned for their highly creative and avant-garde design, well some of you may have guessed that I can only be talking about Trippen. Yes, fanfare and drum roll please!!! We are hugely excited to announce that we are now a Trippen stockist and can share with you our love of this iconic brand.
So, what is it exactly about Trippen that makes us swoon? Well let’s start with their unique, distinctive style. Trippen may nod to the fashion trends but they’re way too cool to follow the crowds. We love the Japanese influenced block platform soles, so edgy, so arty and unbelieveably so comfortable. Much kinder to your feet and infinitely more stylish than your average shoe if you’re after a little extra height! It’s down to the carefully designed construction of the sole with embedded air chambers providing optimum shock absorption.
Which brings me to another reason for our Trippen crush. With each pair made in their own factory in Germany or by small family businesses in Italy, the incredible passion and attention to detail that goes in to a Trippen shoe just shines through in the quality. The opposite of throwaway fashion, these shoes are designed so that individual components can be replaced. Crafted using mainly vegetable tanned leathers, Trippen make footwear that’s as gentle on the environment as they are on your feet.
So take a look, try them on and fall in love. And of course let us know what you think. We love to hear from you!
