You think you’ve seen it all and then something comes along that changes your mind. Which is exactly how I’m feeling regarding Tod’s S/S15 slip-ons for women that just landed in my inbox. And while I wouldn’t go as far as calling them revolutionary, there’s something familiar, yet fresh about them all at once.
An elevated, even elegant update on the skate shoe that’s all the rage now, Tod’s went one up and did some creative embellishments of their own, from the weaved jute rope trim (or that’s what I think it is) that’s a nod to espadrilles, as well as the addition of a leather tongue that would surely add to the comfort of the shoe. Then again, it’s Tod’s, and as far as comfort goes, I wouldn’t expect anything less.
Another piece of good news? They aren’t as pricey as you think they might be. The pair on the left with the denim finish will set you back by just SGD590, the pair on the right that comes in white leather and the sliver of silver (always wanted to say that in a sentence), SGD670. Which really isn’t so bad for shoes that can worn dressed-up or down, for work or play.
Available in other colour combinations as well (there’s one in beige leather and a splash of gold that’s also rather divine), I’ll end the post with some bad news. Boys, no luck on these for us, because they are strictly for the ladies. Unless you have really tiny feet, of course.
