A work of art

Tod's take pride in the workmanship that is put into crafting every pair of Gommino shoes.

Depending on the complexity of the design, up to 35 pieces of leather are required to make a single shoe.

First, the leather pieces are hand-cut into patterns by Tod’s in-house artisans before being treated individually.

Some leather pieces may take years before they reach the right shade and texture for assembling. When they are ready, an inspection will be done to check for flaws and ensure uniformity in hue, texture and thickness.

Next, they are ready to be assembled into specific designs by artisans at the atelier. Each artisan specialises in a specific task to complete the creation process such as stitching, polishing and cutting.

Attention to detail is crucial. 133 holes are carefully perforated on the sole of each shoe by hand to create the brand’s trademark "rubber pebbled soles" that is signature of the Gommino line.

Other pieces of each shoe are then assembled and polished before going through a final inspection. The screening for quality control is tight — every shoe with even the slightest flaw will be rejected and discarded.

This is the reason why every pair of Tod’s shoes exudes iconic style and promises lasting quality.
