Aloha all!  So, this post is a bit different than what you are used to seeing, but the past couple weeks have seen epic surf here in San Diego, and all the toes on the nose bros and surfer gals at Shoe Metro have certainly been taking advantage.  We wanted to share some awesome pics taken right here in our own backyard, of some of our very own local surf gurus and Shoe Metro family.

10% Off Boots + 15% Off Allen Edmonds + 15% Off Select Skate Styles

Hey I just wanted to recap the promotions going on right now. There’s a lot and it can be hard to keep track of so this should make it easier to do so.

  2. Allen Edmonds is running its annual “Rediscover America” campaign. It’s the only time each year that they discount their shoes at all so you should take advantage. Allen Edmonds prides itself on hand-crafting fine men’s dress shoes and producing them in the USA. All Allen Edmonds dress shoes are on sale right now for 15% Off. Use this code at checkout: 15ALLEN. This ends 10/6/2011.

Finally, we’re having a sale on 15 different skate shoes, for men and women. It’s 15% Off these skate shoes with this code: SK8SALE. Here’s a rundown of everything we’re offering and how much they’ll be after the discount. This promo ends 10/3/2011:

Weird Shoe Wednesdays: Glittery Thigh-High Boots … For Men

Both glittery shoes and thigh-high boots are trendy this Fall/Winter season for women. But men are way ahead of the curve in both departments. Back in 2009, Givenchy unveiled its new line of Fall/Winter 2009 Men’s Fashions. Among many other daring looks, these glittery thigh-high boots were included.

What do you think? What would you say to a man if you saw him walking down the street in these sparkling thigh-highs?

Manolo Blahnik x Timberland Boots at New York Fashion Week

More news on odd collaborations. Yesterday, we saw Hello Kitty Dr. Marten’s boots and shoes. Today, I’ve spotted these high-heeled Timberland boots, a collaboration between Manolo Blahnik and Timberland. It seems that rugged-chic will be a huge trend in the Fall season.

These Manolo Blahnik Timberland boots are extremely limited. They’re available only at the Manolo Blahnik store in New York and only during New York Fashion Week (or until they’re all gone). And they are going for a whopping $1,050.

If you had $1,050 lying around and you lived in New York, would you sport these?

Weird Shoe Wednesdays: Hello Kitty x Dr. Martens Shoes

Wow, Dr. Marten’s is really going all out for their 50th anniversary. Last week, we saw their limited edition Dr. Marten’s flash drives. This week, I ran across these collaborations between Dr. Martens and Sanrio, the company behind Hello Kitty that also happens to be celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. The Hello Kitty-themed Mary Janes and boots both feature Hello Kitty’s signature bow and a Hello Kitty-Sanrio logo detail on the footbed. Check them out:

Are there any Hello Kitty fans out there? What do you think of these shoes?
