Treat your feet to some snazzy Shoekers from TOD’s
Adored among fashion-forward folk the world over for its iconic gommino loafer and classic footwear styles, luxury fashion house TOD’s has branched into the sneaker category but rather than rehash, it’s opted for a complete overhaul. Allow us to introduce you to the Shoeker.
As you may have already deducted from its name, the Shoeker fuses the comfort and practicality of a sneaker with the materials and high-quality production of a shoe, so you can confidently rock sneakers and jeans without feeling like you’re taking style advice from Jerry Seinfeld. Created by Korean designer Yong Bae Seok as part of TOD’s No_Code design project, the Shoeker is crafted in elegant leather and features a neoprene upper and mesh textures inspired by technical running trainers, while the laser-cut leather and suede detailing make for a smarter look. The EVA outsole (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) assures lightness, grip and maximum cushioning, whilst showcasing TOD’s luxury heritage through iconic embossed rubber pebbles.
Feel like copping? A pair of these bad boys retail for $695. Yes, these Shoekers aren’t cheap, but can you really put a price on that kind of comfort and style? Take a peek at the whole design process here or skip over to TOD’s to nab yourself a pair, stat – they could very well be the only pair of shoes you need in your life.
