Tod’s is an Italian luxury goods company, founded by Filippo Della Valle in 1920, when he was originally making shoes out of his basement. In the 1970’s, the grandson of Filippo, Diego Della Valle, expanded the business, creating a factory for the production of shoes for American stores. Success after success, the company is now famed for its hand-made leather goods, and under Walter Chiapponi as Creative Director, Tod’s is classic yet contemporary.
Now producing a wealth of products including shoes for men and women, ready-to-wear, accessories, bags and a junior line for babies and children,Tod’s is synonymous with luxury and sophistication.
Undoubtedly, Tod’s is most well known for its footwear, and the ‘Gommino’ driving shoe has become iconic to the brand. Its innovative design features rubber pebble studs along the heel for ultimate comfort. All designs are handcrafted in Italy by the finest in the trade, using the best quality leathers and soft suedes. Their collections have proved timeless through their classic designs in rich neutral palettes, featuring pops of bright tones in some of their most well noted styles. The fine attention to detail, combined with time-honoured techniques and slick designs has left Tod’s an emblem of elegance. Shoe styles range from loafers to boots to sandals, and include modern styles such as trainers with metallic accents and unique colourways.
Tod’s has stores throughout the world, including larger flagship stores from Europe to Indonesia. Their collections can be found on their website, and at Selfridges, Harrods, Farfetch and Flannels.
