Bed Stu Women's Fashion
Brand directoryWomen's Fashion
BED|STÜ began in 1995 in a warehouse in Los Angeles. The character, look and style of the brand's shoes are inspired by the streets of Manhattan's Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhoods. Bedstu shoes and other products are handmade and use chrome-free organically tanned leather. Because the shoes and boots are made from leather that is cut by hand, washed and tumbled until it is soft, and then assembled and sewn by human beings, no shoe or boot made by BED|STÜ is exactly the same. The company says each product is as "unique as a fingerprint."
Some Bedstu products, including oxfords, boots, platforms, and sandals, are organic. BED|STÜ organics don't include chrome and formaldehyde. They use vegetable-tanned leather made in a traditional "old world" process. The company is working toward becoming 100 percent organic. Even non-organic Bedstu shoes and boots are made in a sustainable way and the company uses carbon-neutral, environmentally friendly shipping and manufacturing processes.
BED|STÜ tall boots include durable leather stacked heels, lace and buckle details, and rustic or refined styling. Some tall boot styles, like Della, have adjustable calf fittings to create a perfect fit with jeans or leggings. Goodyear welted leather adds durability and good looks. Some boots have Vibram soles, rubber traction outsoles, or stacked leather chunky heels. The company's ankle boots are also durable and stylish, offering hand-crafted woven paneling and natural colors from light sand to red tones to weathered coffee and black.
The Bedstu style of platform and heel for women includes sustainable wood wedges, stacked leather, or rubber outsoles with bold details and sleek designs. Colors range from dark graphite to pale sand, with natural vegetable green, red, and yellow accents made from natural vegetable dyes. Styles in heels and platforms range from feminine to bold, including zippers, t-straps, and buckled peep-toe ankle styling. Flat shoes and sandals blend comfort with the handmade details and stitching that are the hallmark of a Bedstu shoe.
