Lovers of Tod’s are always on the move driven by the desire of freedom and exploration.
The man wearing “Tod’s the Ride” has an important message to tell. Constantly inspired to discover new shores and balances, the Tod’s man likes wearing Tod’s loafers and a Ride jacket while traveling on a motorcycle, or a walk in the heart of New York. The accessories as well as the shoes are ultra-light, comfortable, and strikingly perfect for those who want to move and walk in absolute freedom.
Their style is clean, with a sporty yet elegant taste. The values of Tod’s reflect a free spirit feeling for both men and women with a practical and refined appeal.
The quality of the leather becomes a second skin in regards to shoes and clothing; the uppers and soles are timeless and stand out from every other style present in the marketplace. Furthermore, the bags and backpacks with a Pillow effect are exquisite accessories made with refined materials and hand-crafted geometric elements.
