For the Fall/Winter 2023 season, Palm Angels applies this transformative approach to the iconic sporty Tod’s tab sneakers which makes it much more than a classic. The shoe has been infused with a spark of novelty and lightness incorporating tapered lines and a tongue construction inspired by the 70s. The toe cap has been updated for a more modern look while the Palm Angels logo in gold lurex is highlighted on the back and tongue of the shoe. The essence of Tod’s DNA is evident on the upper with the embossed T on the lace loop and iconic logo on the back.
Two defining elements of this collaboration: the black or gold leather palm tree stretched at the sides of the upper recalls the West Coast free spirit of Palm Angels and the signature gommino of Tod’s, a functional element transformed into decoration, placed in the back, a modern bas-relief that evokes the legacy, uniqueness and the Tod’s Italian lifestyle.
This is where the worlds of Palm Angels and Tod’s meet and find common ground: making heritage and contemporary culture come together to hold the present moment in a timeless design.
