Off Duty, Off Shoes

Off Duty, Off Shoes

While we pride ourselves on being a slow fashion brand, our day-to-day is anything but that. Whether we're assisting customers at our Mott Street shop or traveling for appointments, our days are full - which makes it that much more rewarding when kicking off our shoes after a hard day of work. In our spare time, our team takes full advantage of “slow" living, so we wanted to share a few snippets of where our Coclico shoes live when they aren't pounding the pavement. Discover more from a couple of our New York team members.

Chelsea Baumberger - Showroom Manager and Retail Associate

"Once I get home, I've been trying to ground myself through eating root vegetables for dinner and writing at least one poem to recenter myself. I have vintage magazines and books beside my bed that I've been thumbing through for inspiration, namely a Rudi Geinrecih book that was gifted to me by my neighbor when I was living on Haight Street in San Francisco. It's a stunning book that I'll forever cherish. If I have extra time on my hands, I'll do some watercolor painting and relax with some ashwagandha and red wine."

"I have no shame in saying that I keep my shoes on display in various corners of my room with my plants. I love my plant babies and my shoe babies so they might as well keep each other company."

"When I get home from my 45+ minute commute, I need some 'me time,' and my partner understands and gives me a good 15 minutes to myself to unwind. I will pet my kitty, grab a glass of wine and relax on the couch while either finishing the article I was reading on the train or scrolling through Instagram."

"I love displaying and merchandising my shoes. They are quite literally little forms of architecture. If I had my way, I would have ALL of my shoes on display, but there is simply not enough room in my apartment, and so I store unseasonable footwear in storage bins in my closet, next to my bed and even under my bed! I place my in-season footwear on a shoe rack near the front door for easy access and for guests to admire as they enter the apartment of course!"
