Buy This Now: Custom Driving Shoes By Tod’s
You people love your sports teams. And your alma maters. Which is why you probably own an ample amount of gear—like performance polos and over-the-knee mesh shorts—in odd color combinations like purple and gold or olive and blue. I'm not judging. I salute bold fashion moves in the name of a little intercollegiate Saturday afternoon merriment (of which I, myself, have been known to partake in wearing head-to-toe orange and blue).
This is why I know you’ll love the new customization project by leather experts Tod’s: the Gommino Club.
The brand is known for their sporty, Italian footwear—and after you inject a little personalization (read: team spirit) into their popular 1950s driving shoe-inspired moccasins, you will be, too. Select from 15 different colored leather swatches for the body of the shoe, as well as color combine the leather braided laces (perhaps red and white for Wisconsin?), which top the shoe in their looping trademark style called (for serious) the 'Scooby Doo.' Finish it off with an optional monogram imprint of your initials and a membership card to track the custom order process, since construction of each pair takes over 100 steps.
These sporty kicks go with everything from colored chinos to linen-blend summer suits. So while you may not get them before tip-off of the Final Four on Saturday, there's always next season (says a Florida Gator)—or opening night of Major League Baseball on Sunday. You don't happen to be a Cubs fan, do you?
