• 2568's Paloma Boat Shoe

    Our Paloma was featured in People Style Watch this month! Looks like they are as obsessed as we are about this boat shoe that was inspired by the colors of Guatemala. Still a few sizes left in yellow. This shoe is just as amazing in the gold and blue versions. Check her out!  http://www.ashburyskies.com/2568-paloma-moccasin-gold/



  • 2568 Paloma boat shoe

    As much as we love a sky-high platform, we can’t resist an everyday flat. We are weak in the knees for 2568’s snake skin boat shoe, the Paloma. What makes this one so unique is the color, which is inspired by Guatemalan textiles.  This blue version with red underlay is an effortless way to incorporate some fresh flair into your look. Also available in gold and yellow. These authentic moccasins are handmade in Guatemala.

  • August is trade show month

    August is trade show month and I am heading east to Vegas. Shows are one of the many ways we find those oh-so-fresh labels each season. As we put together our eclectic assortment of shoes from the best independent designers, the Platform, Pool and Project trade show circuit fall into the can't be missed category. This is an environment where design, art, and commerce intersect.

    Here is a peek into my world today:

    Up at 3:45 am to catch a 6:15 am flight from San Francisco to Vegas. This early in the am there are only 2 things on my mind 1) don't leave the house without coffee 2) don't forget your cell phone. I can deal with all other mishaps when departing this early, even missing my flight, but these two are the hardest to recover from.

    Arrived in good shape and saw, Jeffrey Campbell, Matt Bernson, Dolce Vita, and 2568 today. These indie favs of mine did not fail to deliver. I can’t even begin to name all the reasons why Jeff Campbell’s street wear inspired collection was in a class of its own. Matt Bernson’s eye for beautiful, naturally tanned leathers put on rustic, down to earth bottoms was spot on. Dolce Vita’s new DV8 line, carried by a just a few retailers (including us!) looked really fresh. 2568 remained true to who they were and amazed me with their handcrafted shoes with Mexican blanket inspired fabrics from Guatemala.

    Another fellow trade show attendee. Tell us how you really feel!


    My comfortable walking shoes for being on my feet all day :

    What a day! One day down, one to go.

  • Aspiga Starfish Sandal

    I think this Aspiga chic metallic leather Starfish sandal is hand beaded to perfection. Try wearing them close to home for low-key afternoons or let them peek out of your maxi for that just right ethnic feel.   We are especially proud to feature this British company sandals, not just because of their unique colors and designs, but also because we are helping them, in their mission to fight poverty through trade. Every craftsman puts a bit of themselves into each pair, which to us, means each comes with a healthy dose of good karma.

    Our tip: wear them with tangerine nail polish.
