Palm Angels infuses fresh energy into the iconic Tod's Tabs sneaker by seamlessly blending the distinctive characteristics of both brands, resulting in a powerful and elevated interpretation of this classic model.
Palm Angels excels in reimagining timeless style classics, injecting them with a daring, contemporary twist—an unexpected transformation that thrusts them into the forefront with fresh, bold perspectives. The FW23 season presented a unique canvas for this innovative vision, focusing on the iconic Tod’s Tabs sneaker, a sporty masterpiece crafted with Tod’s unparalleled leather craftsmanship.
The collaboration between Palm Angels and Tod’s infuses new life and lightness into this iconic shoe, elevating it far beyond its classic origins. The shoe’s design now boasts sleeker lines, evoking the nostalgia of the 70s in its tongue construction and a modernized toe cap. Adorned with the Palm Angels logo in gold lurex on the tongue and back, it seamlessly marries with Tod’s DNA, where the T emblem graces the lace loop and the iconic logo adorns the rear.
Two distinct elements define this extraordinary partnership: the black leather palm tree, stretching along the sides of the upper, pays homage to Palm Angels’ West Coast free-spirit, while Tod’s signature “gommino” evolves from a functional element into a decorative masterpiece at the back—a modern bas-relief evoking the legacy, uniqueness, and Italian lifestyle synonymous with Tod’s.
This is the point where the worlds of Palm Angels and Tod’s converge and harmonize, creating a fusion of heritage and contemporary culture that captures the essence of the present moment within a timeless design. The Palm Angels x Tod’s sneakers, available for both men and women, are set to launch on November 9th at Palm Angels boutiques worldwide, on palmangels.com, tods.com, and through selected international retailers.
