Tod’s is the ultimate in luxury, Italian shoes. It was not until the 1970s that the brand grew from a hometown leather shop to a world-renowned fashion label. Today, the Tod’s group also owns the labels Roger Vivier, Hogan, and Fay.
The Designer Label
Tod’s roots lie in in the early 20th century when Filippo Della Valle, who was an experienced cobbler, founded the small family business. But only from the 1970s on, however, Tod’s started to go big. Diego Della Valle, Fillippo’s grandson, turned the family workshop into a shoe factory and began producing shoes for American department stores. Della Valle learned his trade at Grandfather Flippo’s cobbler’s bench, giving up his father’s dreams of having an attorney in lieu of following his passion for footwear fashion. In the 1980s, finally, the Tod’s label came into being as a synonym for luxurious and wearable shoes that no fashion lover could resist.
Della Valle has never strayed far from his Italian roots, using the colors of his home country as the inspiration behind his lines. Today, shoppers can find everything from shoes to handbags to iPad cases available with the trademark Tod’s look. Tod’s is known for its classic beauty combined with modern colors. Tod’s remains true to its artisan tradition, using only the finest materials in the manufacturing process. This attention to detail and style makes Tod’s products the ideal purchase to anybody with style.
