These boots were made for walking, and it might be the most comfortable walk you take all fall. That’s how Dawnell Codon feels about BED|STÜ, the brand of handmade leather boots that is flying off the shelves of her Branson apparel boutique, Codé Fine Apparel.
“When I started the store, I didn’t know what was going to sell for us and what wasn’t,” Codon says. “I ran across BED|STÜ online and found out nobody’s carrying it in Branson, and now when people come in and see we carry BED|STÜ, they freak out because of the quality of their products.”
The beauty of BED|STÜ is the craftsmanship. Everything is made from organically tanned, chrome-free genuine leather, which is then hand-cut, sewn, washed and tumbled to create a soft, worn look. Finishes like buckles and studs are added by hand at the end. Because of this process (and the less-than-$325-per-pair price point), the L.A.–based brand is very attractive to boutique shoppers looking for a chic one-of-a-kind find.
“In general, when people are boutique shopping, they’re trying to find unique pieces that everyone else isn’t going to have,” Codon says. “With BED|STÜ, you can walk past someone wearing the same pair of boots you have on, and they’ll look totally different.”
What’s also great is the company is always putting out new styles. This season, Codon predicts the Onset Bootie to sell out again. The comfortable wedge and ways you can dress it up or down make it a highly versatile option. And, of course, the superior artistry remains the same, no matter which pair you choose.
“I’ve bought other leather stuff before, and when you compare them, there’s a little bit of a disappointment,” Codon says. “I’ll never go back from BED|STÜ. I’m obsessed.”Edit ModuleShow Tags
