Be the Envy of All the Other Kids With 80%20’s Pupped Up Kicks

You'll be the haute hound in these heels and lace-up wedges.


Who, me? No, I wasn’t window (browser) shopping at work today.

OK, look, when part of your job description includes looking for the Internet’s cutest dogs, sometimes your work distracts you from your work. But I found something to show you! So I wasn’t looking at shoes, I was doing research. Yeah, that’s what I’m gonna tell my boss. “Sorry this story is late, I was researching!”

And what did I find? I found, count ’em, not one, but two pairs of dog shoes.

First, it was the punny name that caught me — “Pupped Up Kicks,” like that Foster the People ode to stylish retro shoes. And then I clicked and was all, “Awww!”

The lace-up wedge shoe is a little silly, recalling the upholstery of your mother’s ottoman, but we can imagine them adding a little levity to your work outfit, as well as a little height, without sacrificing comfort. Designed by 80%20, the idea is that wear your “favorite 20% of your wardrobe 80% of the time.” Add dogs and it be 100 percent of the time.

But if you’re looking for something a little sexier, I also found these Jeffrey Campbell — wait for it — heels. Styled after the classic Mary Jane, these shoes can add a quirky touch to an otherwise demure outfit.

After showing these shoes to Dogster Editor-in-Chief Janine, she was heard saying, “These come in my size!” Can you blame her? She has a dog wardrobe to keep up! [Editor’s Note: I totally bought the 80%20 shoes, and it’s all your fault, Liz.]
