Tod’s dabbles with studs for limited edition Gommino loafers
Who said Tod’s was too high brow for studs? Well, we thought so, but perhaps the Italian needs to extend its market from fox fur D-bag loving matrons to the more adventurous style.
Say hello to the limited edition Gommino collection of women’s loafers. Known just as well for their men’s counterpart, Tod’s loafers for the fairer sex are comfy go-to shoes for running errands and for when wearing heels are not functionally acceptable (yes, ladies, there’s a time and place for everything).

Of course, as with anyone who dips their toes into something they haven’t done before, Tod’s didn’t quite come out with a stellar collection this time. Some pairs look like their wear sprinkled with metal hardware with no care for what the end product would look like or what exactly they wanted their wearers to wear them to. A few look like they would look better paired with a beaded sari than a pair of chinos and a casual white button-down.
Maybe they’ll come up with a better line next time, who knows? But for now, we’re going to look for other options.
