New to POD – Bed Stu – a truly unique line of weathered, textured and hand-finished vintage looking boots and shoes. Bed Stu’s appeal is the grittiness of their styles, an unapologetic reflection of the tough streets of Brooklyn where they originate. Combine that timeless look with a Goodyear-welted, tire-like outsole, coupled with cushioned insoles and you’re all set to hit the streets…..
Introducing CYDWOQ shoes (pronounced ‘Sidewalk’) – all handmade in Burbank, California. Cydwoq founder, Rafi Balouzian, comes from a long line of true artisan, master shoe-makers. Rafi has a degree in architecture which influences his contemporary designs. The Cydwoq factory uses only vegetable-tanned leathers and water-based biodegradable glues.
The Art Company was one of the first brands of footwear we chose for POD. Their innovative approach to shoe design is impressive. Each season they stun us with their funky looks and materials – cork, natural rubber, wood. They even have footwear accessories. The incredible colour and design of Art shoes and boots is true art – all their footwear is handcrafted in Spain.
We’re really not into ‘serious’ footwear at POD – life is just too short, too much fun!
