• Matiko Paris

    We believe you can learn a lot about someone from a quick glance at their shoes. Bare your soul to the world when you slip on the Paris from Matiko.This has a hint of city casual but still enough sophistication to fall into the dress up or down category. We are especially fond of the two-tone neutral color story.

  • Monaco, by indie designer Matiko Shoes

    We see a lot of shoes. We should, it is our business. I love it when I flip over a shoe. This is exactly what happened when I saw the Monaco by Matiko. To me, interesting proportions are delivering the most innovative looks this season.  Matiko’s Monaco adds an element of texture with the raffia wrapped island platform and stacked wood architectural heel. The palm print wrapped sole and sock give this shoe a hint of Miami beach glam. Enjoy!

  • Our last photo shoot

    If you read my New Year's post you know that it poured down rain during our last photo shoot. We had planned to shoot outside near the docks in Sausalito. Everything was in motion so we couldn't cancel.  Yvette and I were worried that we would not be able to get enough interesting backgrounds since we pretty much just had our photographer's studio and his building to choose from for settings.  Thanks to some outside-the-box thinking, we made it work.

    Our photographer got this water buffalo at a garage sale and had it in his studio. We had Tori (our model) stand on a couch and from there we just improvised. This turned out to be one of my favorite shots. She is wearing the Jeffrey Campbell Prance:

    This one was in the dressing room at our photographer's studio. It had been off limits to photography until that day. This is the Dolce Vita Joanna.

    We stepped outside during the rain for a shot on the porch and found this bench. It looks like she could be in Paris. This is the Dolce Vita Brenna.

    We really got stuck and started wandering the halls of the studio and found this couch. She is wearing the Jeffrey Campbell Tardy in Tartan.

    We tried to go outside when it stopped raining and got this shot off before it started up again. It is the Matiko Sina. I love the reflection of the shoe in the puddle.

    We are rounding up samples, looking at models, styling outfits and scouting locations for our Spring look book now. Fingers crosses we get a beautiful San Francisco sunny day...








  • Matiko Lee smoking slipper: good enough for Thanksgiving day

    Michelle of San Francisco (who happens to be one of our best customers) sported the Matiko Lee on Thanksgiving day.  I am sure these snake leisure slippers, embellished with studs gave Michelle and family something to talk about besides the usually holiday pleasantries. Thanks for sending in this fab photo Michelle, keep them coming!

  • Matiko Sina: Boho Holiday chic

    It is no secret that we are Boho holiday enthusiasts. We love the juxtaposition of casual meets glitz for holiday parties. The Sina, by Matiko, especially caught our eye because it has just the right amount of sparkle. It is both straight-leg jean and skirt worthy. This is our pick for the perfect holiday oxford.
